Samsung unveils Connect Tag

Posted October 17, 2017

The keyring-like device is similar to the Tile tags, only it doesn't run off a Bluetooth connection with the smartphone.

In order to build upon its IoT ecosystem, Samsung has made the Connect Tag compatible with SmartThings, which means it will work in conjunction with other IoT devices.

Based on the Tizen operating system, the Samsung Connect Tag can be clipped to a range of objects and, using a combination of NB-IoT, Cat.M1, GPS and GLONASS, it will report the location of whatever it is attached to. Narrowband networks connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices through cellular communication bands.

The government has announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh each to the next of kin of the deceased and Rs 50,000 to injured. In the same area, an illegally constructed multi-storey building was demolished after it tilted to one side in August.

The low-power NB-IoT, Cat.M1 tag uses cellular connectivity to provide location services and notifications to users. It can, for example, be used to turn on the lights or TV once a wearer gets home, or to send a notification when a child enters a schoolyard or a dog wanders beyond the garden fence. Samsung just launched its new tool which can help you trace your kids, pets or your valuable ones.

Samsung Electronics has unveiled the Connect Tag - an accessory that receives precise location information so that you can stalk track the whereabouts of your loved ones. Connect Tag comes with an exclusive ring that easily attaches to bags, collars or key rings.

The tag will be showcased at the Samsung Developer Conference 2017 in San Francisco, later this week.

It will go on sale for a yet-to-be-disclosed price in Korea first before availability opens up in other countries in the following months. The battery can last for up to seven days on a single charge, minimizing the need to constantly swap out or plug in the device.
