Introducing Tabs: The Location and Home Monitoring Solution Bringing Peace of Mind to Families

The ultimate fully-integrated protection solution enabling smart neighborhood launches at CES 2018

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TrackNet, Inc., a cutting-edge LoRaWAN™ Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider, today announced the launch of Tabs, the all-in-one, low-cost smart home monitoring solution at CES 2018. Managed by a simple mobile app and designed to maximize communication and awareness for families, Tabs suite of devices monitors children's activities and pinpoints their location, ensures the security and health of the home indoors and outdoors, and protects children from inappropriate content online with Wi-Fi parental controls. Tabs provides users with peace of mind by combining all things related to home and family into a single and easy to use solution. 

"We created Tabs with safety as a top priority and we're excited to showcase the most robust and reliable IoT technology on the market today," said Hardy Schmidbauer, CEO & Co-founder of TrackNet. "Tabs will quickly become the primary platform for all things related to home and family safety." 

The Tabs suite of devices currently includes:

  • Wearable Wristband Locator - The Wristband Locator gives parents better visibility into their children's location and activities through the mobile app. Children can send predefined messages such as "I'm safe," or "Ready for pickup!"  Parents can buzz their children through the mobile app with a vibration alert through the wearable.
  • Object Locator - The Object Locator helps keep track of valuable items. Users attach the object locator to valuable items and the Tabs app monitors the item's location for easy recovery in case of loss or theft.
  • Motion Sensor - The Motion Sensor detects motion around multiple entries at once with the wide-angle, wall-mounted sensor. The Tabs app allows users to set up custom alerts to provide better visibility into what's happening while they're away or asleep.
  • Door and Window Sensor - The Door and Window sensor pairs with the mobile app to let users know when a family member arrives home or if someone accesses the home while they're away.
  • Healthy Home Sensor - The Healthy Home Sensor alerts a user to harmful contaminants in their home's air quality including Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) as well as major changes in humidity or temperature.
  • Configurable Push Button - The Push Button allows users to configure different functionality in the mobile app, such as elderly neighbor who might need help.  Tabs will integrate with IFTTT, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home so they can interface with existing home solutions in the first half of 2018. 
  • Wi-Fi Parental Controls - Parental controls shield children from inappropriate web content, control how much time they spend online, view all device history and allow users to block certain website categories.

Tabs is the first solution widely available to consumers based on LoRaWAN™ technology. This has a number of advantages compared to the other technologies currently being utilized. A single Tabs Hub easily covers an entire neighborhood ensuring that there are no connectivity challenges and permits applications outside of the home. Each Tabs Hub becomes part of the same seamless Tabs LoRaWAN™ network. The more Tabs Hubs deployed in the area, the better the network coverage which benefits all Tabs users, extending smart home technology into smart neighborhood innovation.

During CES, Tabs will be featured at Pepcom's Digital Experience! on January 8, 2018, as well as at the LoRA Alliance booth #2121 in Tech East at the Westgate Resort.

Tabs is now in mass production and available for ordering on Kickstarter starting at $229, in addition to lifetime free subscription costs (valued at $240 per year when compared to Nest).
