The Challenges of Using IoT Pet Tracking

IoT pet tracking is a good example of how the Internet of Things is to be used to solve a practical problem.  There are a growing number of IoT Pet tracking devices available to keep track of pets.  

IoT Pet Tracking Challenges Overview

The most common reason why a pet owner buys a tracking device is the fear of losing a pet. But also they find it interesting to see the whereabouts of their pet during the day.

A pet tracking IoT device needs to be durable and not too large or bulky. It needs to withstand the elements and be strong enough to endure a pet's lifestyle.

Most noteworthy, a reliable pet tracking IoT device needs to have enough battery life to last months or even years of use.

For reliable pet tracking that stays connected, trackers need to use wireless modules. The wireless modules need to use multi-network roaming SIM cards to connect to the best available network. As a result, pet owners can always keep track of their pets and get an accurate location.

The future of Pet Tracking

Network roll-out of LPWAN technologies is happening all around the world. This low-power wide-area technology is the ideal solution for pet tracking LoRa GPS devices. Using low data rates and transmitting small amounts of data. As a result of low processing power, battery life lasts longer.
