eTRAK launches location–tracking product line using Wi-Fi, cellular and GPS
International CTIA Wireless 2012, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA — Dallas-based eTrak has launched a product line of location-tracking devices incorporating a patent-pending “Hybrid Tracking System” utilising Wi-Fi access points, Cell-ID and GPS to ensure pinpoint accuracy (as close as 10 feet) of a person, pet or object.
Utilising the Verizon Network, eTrak devices reveal their location using any computer or smartphone. Introduced at the CTIA Wireless 2012 trade show in New Orleans, eTrak devices are manufactured in America and are suitable for both the consumer and commercial markets.
“The eTrak consumer products will provide safety, peace of mind and help save lives at a very affordable price” said John Harris, CEO of eTrak. “Our commercial product line provides the first high-accuracy, affordable solution for businesses to provide safety and security for everything from employees to assets.”
eTrak’s software platform was recognised as the 2011 International CTIA “Best Enterprise & Vertical Market Solution: Mobile Marketing & Advertising.” eTrak’s domino-sized M2M devices are claimed to be superior to competing products in accuracy and battery life, are much smaller, and weigh less than an ounce. eTrak also features an emergency call button that sends texts and e-mails to pre-determined recipients with its exact location and the ability to receive turn-by-turn directions.
The devices are intended for use by anyone who is safety conscious – almost everyone – parents of young children, caregivers, the health-impaired (special needs, diminished capacity), senior citizens, pet owners, vehicle owners, businesses that need to track assets, members of the military and others.
Based in Dallas, TX., eTrak markets small, lightweight location-tracking devices that can be worn on the wrist, ankle, around the neck – or attached to a keyring, belt, backpack or shoelace. eTrak technology also allows for concealed storage such as in a pocket, vehicle glove box, suitcase, golf bag and many other applications.
