Tractive is a GPS tracker for dogs that allows you to track the location of your pet at any time and at any distance. The GPS tracker connects in a mobile app and works over the internet using mobile data transfer. With it, you can safely leave your dog with the dog sitter or let him off the leash in the dog walking areas.
GPS tracker is a miniature device that attaches to almost any collar or harness. The rectangular shaped body is slightly curved so it won’t interfere with your pet’s playtime or stand out. The tracker is 100% waterproof as well as shock resistant. The Tractive weighs less than 30 grams and is virtually unnoticeable to the pet. However, the manufacturer recommends it for dogs weighing more than 4 pounds.
How does it work?
The tracker detects the location via GSM/GPRS and then sends a signal to the owner’s smartphone. The data is stored for 24 hours. The Tractive app (for iOS, Android) needs to be installed on the phone. In addition, location data can be viewed in a browser by logging into your account. Note that a subscription is required for the device to work.
In addition to the default mode, the user can activate LIVE Tracking mode, in which the location data is updated every 2-3 seconds.
Another useful feature is the installation of permitted geofences. This is especially relevant for private homes: you can mark the coordinates of the yard on the map, and if the pet for some reason will be outside, you will immediately receive an alarm.
Additionally, Tractive reads the dog’s daily activity, saving the data in the app. This makes it a handy tool to monitor the health of your pet.
The GPS-tracker works from a built-in battery, one charge of which is enough for 2-5 days of operation of the device. At the same time, the charging process takes only 3 hours.
