SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 12, 2019
Yesterday, Findster Technologies launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new GPS pet tracker which allows you to monitor your pet anywhere, at any time, around your home and yard without monthly cell-phone fees or subscriptions.
The Findster Home pet tracker is now available at the early bird price of $169 (40% off its future retail price) and is a perfect tool to monitor your pet around the home, or around the neighborhood.
This is Findster’s first return to Kickstarter since 2016 when it successfully raised $250,000 in the launch of Findster Duo, the first GPS tracker without monthly fees that has become the top selling pet location tracker on Amazon.
“Findster Duo is ideal for outdoor adventures; Findster Home, on the other hand, lets pet owners keep track of their buddies while they’re home or on walks around the neighborhood,” said Findster co-founder and CEO David Barroso. “We feel this new product is the natural next step for our company as we progress towards our ultimate goal of reinventing pet care through technology.”
The Findster Home kit includes one or more Pet Modules and a Basestation placed at home. The GPS tracker modules communicate the precise location of your pets in real-time to the Findster smartphone App, allowing you to know exactly where your four-legged friends are, whether you’re at work, out at dinner or on holiday on the other side of the world.
Findster uses a unique proprietary technology known as MAZE which provides wireless communication without any cellular connection and its corresponding costs to the user. The Findster Home system also allows you to set-up virtual borders around your home and yard. If your pet wanders past the border you receive an alert on your phone, letting you or other family members to quickly retrieve your furry friend.
“Kickstarter provides a unique opportunity to connect directly with our users,” added David. “During our previous campaign, we listened to our backers’ thoughts on the product and based our roadmap around their needs and suggestions for improvements. This worked so well that we thought replicating the process was the perfect way to launch Findster Home.”
Findster Home lets you monitor up to three pets at once. It also allows you to check your pets’ activity levels throughout the day, so you know how much exercise and rest they get.
Findster Home’s Kickstarter campaign runs from November 11 to December 14 and Early Bird perks are set for delivery next June. For a full rundown of the pledge levels, visit the Kickstarter campaign.
