Pet owners looking for a way to keep track of their cats or dogs might be interested in any new pet GPS tracker called PIP that has been created by PetSimpl.
The PIP GPS pet tracker has been specifically designed to help owners never lose their pets and is fitted with a battery that is capable of providing a GPS location to within 5 feet for up to 3 months. To learn more about the PIP tracker watch the video below.
The PIP pet GPS tracker is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $50,000 to help it go into production. Its creators explain a little more about the design and functionality of PIP .
“Shortly after adopting our 15-pound terrier mix, Pip, he escaped through the fence to chase after a squirrel. Our family immediately went into panic-mode. We searched all over. We called neighbors and animal control. In the end, he was found eating trash from a dumpster at a nearby hotel. We were relieved to find him, but the helpless feeling lingered as we thought about the horrible things that could have happened.
We all want to be good pet owners. We do our best to keep our pets happy and healthy by giving them the best food, keeping them active, and taking them into the vet for regular checkups. As the owner of a small dog with a passion for chasing squirrels, one of my greatest fears is that Pip will escape and run blindly into traffic. I built this device out of my desire to give myself the peace of mind that I can find him quickly if this happens and I named it Pip, since he was the inspiration behind it.
Pip is a small device that attaches to your pet’s collar. With Pip, your pet will never be lost again. If your pet leaves a safe area, Pip will send you an alert with your pet’s exact location. Our app will then use the GPS in your phone and the GPS in Pip to guide you to your pet. You can also send out an alert to neighbors and friends.
Pip uses a cellular data connection to transmit the GPS location of your pet, so even if she manages to run across the country, you’ll be able to see her exact location.”
