We live in a world of technology and use technology extensively to create better and easier living conditions.
Pets are part of our family, so it’s our responsibility to ensure their safety. Various pet trackers are available in the market. These trackers work on different technologies.
So, you can choose one according to your needs. In this article, we’ll share how LoRa technology can help in pet tracking and discuss features of pet trackers.
How can technology help in Pet Tracking?
Since the IoT development, people have been using it in almost every field of life. Initially, the Internet of Things was used to improve work efficiency and promote urban development. But now, pet tracking devices are making their way to the market. Pet owners can get customized trackers and applications for pet tracking according to their needs.
Luckily there are various IoT solutions available for pet tracking in the market. Some pet lovers prefer GPS technology, while others use LoRa, Bluetooth, and Radio Frequency (RF) technology. Each pet tracking technology has some pros and cons. Therefore, you need to be aware of them so that you can choose the best option based on your needs.
The factors that are most important to consider when deciding the tracking technology are:
– Your budget
– Required features
– Availability of network in your area
– The distance you want to track with a pet tracker
How does the LoRa Pet Tracking system work?
LoRa can be used for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications. LoRa devices are battery-powered, and their battery life is five times more than the GSM standard. LPWAN technology is preferred and used worldwide for pet tracking.
It’s a low-power wide-area technology that is ideal for tracking pets. LoRa pet tracking devices have low data rates and transfer less data. Therefore, their battery life is longer than traditional trackers.
With LoRa technology, you can track the pet around the house. When pets leave the area, you’re notified. You just need to define the safety fence around the house through an app. It will help you get notified whenever the pet crosses the fence.
After reading the points given below, you’ll understand how LoRa technology helps in pet tracking.
Now you understand why pet trackers are essential. The following tips can help you purchase the best pet tracker.
All pets are not the same. If you need a tracker for monitoring health, it will be different from the tracker used to track location. So, choose a tracker according to your needs.
The pets don’t have the same size, so the same tracker can’t fit all pets. Therefore, considering a pet’s size is essential before purchasing any pet tracker.
For outdoor pets, ensure that you look for waterproof trackers. Similarly, for indoor pets, there are different things to consider.
Luckily, LoRa devices are low-powered, and they don’t consume much battery. So, you don’t have to worry about battery life.
It’s another important factor. LoRa trackers don’t have monthly charges, so it’s an economical option if you have a tight budget.
In some places, LTE and Wi-Fi aren’t available. But the good news is that LoRa technology can still help even if no network is available.
One thing is sure pet trackers are essential for pet safety. But it’s not easy to choose pet trackers because so many options are available in the market.
Nowadays, LoRa systems are the most popular for pet tracking. So, if you need LoRa design services and want to get a custom pet tracker by LoRa technology, you can contact Arshon Technology. We can help you get a customized tracker according to your needs.
