Samsung's new Connect Tag lets you track your kids, pets, and more

Narrowband networks connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices through cellular communication bands. As for how you might put it to use, Samsung suggests, attaching it to a kid's backpack, clipping it to a dog's collar or putting it on a key chain so that your keys never get lost.

As one of the main benefits of NB-IoT is its greater power efficiency, the Connect Tag can go a whole week without needing a recharge, according to Samsung.

The Samsung Connect Tag will work with GPS, Wi-Fi-based positioning (WPS) and Cell ID, so it can receive accurate location information both indoors and outdoors for effortless location tracking. These tracking and notification abilities will minimize anxiety about the user's favorite items or loved ones, offering an exciting way to use technology for increased family security and an enhanced lifestyle.

Other useful features include pressing a button on your phone to have the Connect Tag send its location to the handset (this is useful if you need to pick up your kid from somewhere or if you lose your auto in a crowded garage).

Wal-Mart Stores Inc
After $-0.20 actual EPS reported by HubSpot Inc for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 90.00% negative EPS growth. Moreover, Aperio Group Incorporated Ltd Liability Com has 0.01% invested in Associated Banc Corp (NYSE:ASB) for 44,854 shares.

The Connect Tag will be also tied to the SmartThings ecosystem. For example, the tag can trigger lights to turn on when a user enters the room or send notifications when a child enters school grounds.

Samsung said the Connect Tag will be showcased at its Developer Conference 2017 on 18 October.

More standard notification options include a location finder Android app, which pulls up the location at the push of a button, and periodic notifications that keep you regularly informed on the location of a child or, say, a pet when you are at the office or elsewhere.

The Connect Tag will be available in South Korea first before arriving in other locations over the coming months. It did say however that the device comes with a 300mAh battery which can keep the device running for up to seven days a single charge.
