Seeed Studio Launches The Card-Size LoRaWAN GPS Tracker for Asset & Personnel Tracking on Kickstarter in 3 Hours

Revolutionising the way businesses track their assets and personnel indoors and outdoors, Seeed Studio introduces a reliable, compact, low-cost LoRaWAN® Tracker SenseCAP T1000.

Shenzhen, China August 22, 2023Seeed Studio, a leading IoT hardware solution provider, announces the launch of its groundbreaking card-size LoRaWAN GPS tracker SenseCAP T1000 on Kickstarter. Designed to meet the tracking demands in various industries, this innovative solution offers a seamless indoor and outdoor tracking worldwide. The SenseCAP T1000 is available for pre-order exclusively on Kickstarter with an exclusive 33% off discounts at $28 starting from 8AM on August 22 (PT).

Powered by Semtech’s LR1110 chipset, SenseCAP T1000 is a compact card-size LoRaWAN® tracker that utilizes GNSS/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth for precise outdoor & indoor location tracking. It boasts self-geo-adaptive capabilities, local data storage, and an impressive battery life for months. Additionally, it is equipped with temperature, light, and motion sensors, making it ideal for a variety of applications for location and status monitoring.

“We are excited to introduce our SenseCAP T1000 to developers and system integrators who want a seamless indoor and outdoor tracking solution that enable asset visibility anywhere in the world. Cellulars like 2G, 3G, 4G have been mainstream connectivity solution for asset tracking worldwide,” said Joey Jiang, VP of Seeed Studio.However, in regions where cellulars are not available, LoRaWAN® has proven an excellent solution for its long range transmission and low power consumption. Our goal is to transform the way business track their assets and personnel by leveraging LoRaWAN®.

The SenseCAP T1000 offers the following features:

Multiple Positioning Technologies to Ensure Seamless Indoor and Outdoor Tracking

The SenseCAP T1000 Tracker utilizes 3 different positioning technologies for accurate indoor and outdoor positioning: a combination of GPS for outdoors and WiFi & BLE for indoors. The Tracker can switch between BLE, WiFi, GPS and their combinations depending on the infrastructure and application scenarios. It ensures users to gain full visibility of their assets, personnel, or what they care, both indoors and outdoors, using a single medium.

Long Battery Life, Cost-Effective, and Easy Deployment on the Global LoRaWAN® Network

The global LoRaWAN® network provides long-range, low-power wireless communication in over 160 countries. SenseCAP T1000 utilizes this network to transmit data at very low costs. With a rechargeable 700mAh battery, it can last up to 6 months with a single charge. For areas without LoRaWAN® coverage, Seeed Studio offers a SenseCAP Gateway Bundle on Kickstarter for quick deployment to build LoRaWAN® network infrastructure.

Frequency-Auto-Switch Algorithm for Global Tracking

Standard LoRaWAN devices need to follow specific LoRaWAN® frequency plans set by different countries to meet regulations, make the best use of available radio frequencies, and minimize signal interference. The SenseCAP T1000 LoRaWAN® tracker offers a powerful Auto-Geo-Adaptive feature that automatically switches between different LoRaWAN® regions based on the device’s location coordinates. This ensures excellent tracking performance across the globe.

Sensing Environmental Data and Offering Reactions While Geotracking

Apart from geolocation tracking, the card-side SenseCAP T1000 also includes temperature, light, and accelerometer sensors for environmental monitoring of tracked items. Additionally, it features an SOS button and buzzer to facilitate quick emergency response during tracking management.

Offline Data Storage to Secure Tracking Consistency

SenseCAP T1000 is capable of storing 1000+ records locally when it’s out of LoRaWAN® connection, allowing for over 40 days of data storage with a sampling interval of once per hour. It can upload the data when LoRaWAN connectivity resumes to secure the data consistency.

Super Easy to Get Location & Sensor Data

Natively compatible with SenseCAP Mate App and SenseCAP Web Portal, SenseCAP T1000 supports a 3-step easy configuration to get location and sensor data. It also offers open API for system integrators to manage data and devices and build applications for different scenarios.

Open for Customization & Integration to Meet Various Tracking Needs

Designed with an open and easy integration mindset, the SenseCAP T1000 is a hardware solution that can be customized, adapted and easily integrated with popular IoT platforms and real-time tracking systems to meet specific requirements, making it an ideal choice for system integrators and developers looking to create unique tracking applications.
