BluTracker is an ultra small Bluetooth GPS locator. It has a range of over 0.5 Miles, the battery lasts for over 2 months in between charges, and it has a full GPS engine and motion detector. There are absolutely no service fees!
Over half a mile Range (US Version)! How did we achieve such amazing range? We are using in-house custom modified RF amplifiers designed for very long range. We also use a special Omni directional Antenna designed for long range. This enables a line of sight Radius Range of more than half a Mile. (about 800 meters)
We made an amazing app for BluTracker, with many features...
Pinpoint the BluTracker easily on a map. On Google Maps you will see yourself as a blue dot and BluTracker as a red dot. You can also draw a circle to create a Virtual Fence around you. Any time the BluTracker moves outside this Virtual Fence, your phone will alert you.
This is a great feature if you want to let your dog roam free in the park. If it wanders off, you will be notified. Then find it easily using the locator App.
Because GPS does not work indoors,
we created the radar feature.
The Radar Screen will display BluTracker in a Radar type Screen. Of course, because we don't really know direction, the radar Screen can only be used to approximate the distance of the BluTracker to your phone, but not direction. So once you have located on the Radar Screen a BluTracker you would like to find, you start walking in a specific direction, and see if it gets closer or farther.
The battery last for about 2 months with continuous use. That means you can attach it to your Pets collar, and literally forget about for a couple of months. Or Attach it to a kids sneaker, bag pack etc.
Get an Alert if someone is moving your bike.
But, where did you park it?
BluTracker will help you find it too.
It is the same unit. When you set up your unit for the first time, to meet European laws and Certification, selecting Europe as your location will load the EU profile. The US profile transmits a stronger signal than the European one. To meet European CE and ETSI Certification, we had to lower the Transmission signal for the European profile. For the US Profile we meet the maximum allowance per FCC Title 47, Section 15.247.
We recommend using no more than 20 BluTrackers at the same time.
You can pair a BluTracker to many phones, and even see all the BluTrackers in range on the Radar screen from many phones at the same time, but only one phone can make connect to a BluTracker. (make it Buzz, or create the Virtual Leash at a time)
BluTracker encrypts the signal, and only a phone that was paired with BluTracker will be able to decode the signal.
Start walking or driving in any direction. The BluTracker app will keep searching for the BluTracker. You only need 1 Signal to be picked from the BluTracker to know its exact last known GPS coordinates. Once that signal is picked, it will pinpoint the location on the BluTracker Map view app. With the US Version we have picked up signals as far as 1 mile with direct line of sight.
This step, is only needed for the very first time you want to pair BluTracker with your phone. You launch the BluTracker app, select to add a new device, after the phone finds the BluTracker within the app, it will prompt you to scan a barcode or enter the Private key belonging to the BluTracker. You are done.
BluTracker works iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, New iPad, iPad mini, New iPod touch. It also works on Android devices supporting Bluetooth Low Energy, running Android 4.0 and newer. We have tested it on the Samsung Galaxy S3, and Note 2, and it works great! (Since the support for Bluetooth 4.0 on the Samsung S3 is bad, we wrote the Bluetooth drivers on our own)
Nothing special is required. BluTracker will communicate directly with your Smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy.
US Version is Approximately 2500 feet or 0.5 miles.
European Version is approximately 120 Meters.
US Version is approximately 400 ft to 1000 feet.

The rechargeable battery inside BluTracker will last about 2 months, with continuous use. It will take about 1 hour to fully charge it once again.
The BluTracker uses a Li-Polymer Rechargeable battery.
Because we don't really know direction, the radar Screen can only be used to approximate the distance of the BluTracker to your phone, but not direction. So once item you are looking for is on your Radar Screen you start walking in a specific direction, and see if it gets closer or farther.
