DOTT is a new smart dog tag that has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to go into production, and creates a virtual leash between owners and dog using a companion applications and Bluetooth dog tag.
The DOTT dog tag is priced at $25 and sends a signal up to 350 ft radius, or the equivalent to 21 standard basketball courts and uses Bluetooth Smart technology for a connection.
Watch the video below to learn more about the small tag that requires no monthly fees and is fitted with a batter that is capable of providing up to 6 months use without the need to recharge. Its creators explain a little more :
The Smart Dog Tag was created by a group of pet lovers to provide an affordable and active solution to help you locate your pets if they ever get lost. It uses Bluetooth Smart technology paired with the DOTT mobile app to provide a community of people who can help you find your lost pets.
One out of three pets will get lost in their lifetime and only 10% are ever found. Replace your old dog tag with a new smart one to prevent yours from getting lost! There are already a great number of tools out there that promise to help find your pets when they get lost… so, why do we need another one?
– GPS devices are bulky and expensive. Worst of all, the battery life only lasts a few days; they only work if you remember to charge the battery and attach them to your pets.
– Microchips are passive and only useful if someone who has a scanner catches the lost pet.
– Other tracking devices are not pet-specific and don’t always meet the needs of pet owners.
Jump over to Kickstarter to make a pledge from $25 to help DOTT become a reality.
