Tile launched a new cat tracking tag on Tuesday to help you find your furry friends. The tag is essentially a modified version of the tile sticker with a silicone collar attachment that costs $40.
The company claims that the Tile for Cats battery lasts up to three years and the sticker can be easily replaced. The tracker has a range of 76.2 meters and works with both Android and iOS devices.
This will help you know if your cat is just hiding in a corner of the house and wants you to leave it alone.
The product also offers integration with voice assistants such as Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can easily find your cat with a voice command.
The package comes with a tile sticker and a collar attachment and is compatible with almost all standard cat collars. The company said the attachment can be stretched up to 1.7x without breaking. In addition, Tile for Cats is water resistant, so few drops of liquid or a cat licking it will not affect the device.
This is the company’s first foray into pet products. It’s a clever trick by the company to modify an existing product to build a low-cost Bluetooth-based tracking solution.
There are plenty of GPS-based trackers on the market starting at the $50 base price, and some offer monthly subscriptions for additional features. But this is an inexpensive solution if your cat doesn’t go out much.
Tile for Cats is available to customers on the company’s website in black and white colors.
