This product works like the AirTag, but is used to track dogs

0 0

This tag uses the same Find My network as the AirTag, but is for animals, not objects.

In 2021, by formalizing the AirTag , Apple entered the object locator tag market, and entered into competition with the company that manufactures Tile tags. But before launching this product, the Cupertino company had prepared the ground, by launching its Find My or Locate platform.

Find My is a platform offered by Apple that allows you to find lost items, whether Apple products or third-party products offered by companies that support the platform. To locate objects, this platform uses Bluetooth technology.

In essence, when an object is misplaced, it emits a signal that can be detected by other users’ Apple products. And it lets the owner know where their object was last located.

A device compatible with Locate that allows you to find your dog

Until now, Apple’s Find My platform has mostly been used to allow people to locate objects. But as the site 9to5Mac notes, there is now also a tag compatible with the platform intended for pets.

It is a connected pendant for animals called YIP Smart Tag and sold for 34.99 dollars, the equivalent of 30 euros. And how it works, to locate a lost animal, is similar to how the AirTag works to locate objects.

“The YIP Smart Tag is an engravable identifier. Beacon that helps you locate the most precious things in your life. Your tag communicates with hundreds of millions of Apple devices on the Apple Find My network. With a few simple steps, you can add your YIP smart tag to the Apple Find My app on your iPhone or iPad. During those stressful times, go to the Find My app and see on the map where your smart tag is or put it in lost mode and your iPhone will notify you when your smart tag comes into contact with another Apple device » ,” reads -on in the description on the website.

It should nevertheless be noted that Apple’s Find My network is not necessarily the most appropriate solution for finding a lost pet, insofar as they move around a lot, and Find My does not work like a GPS, the network does not allow real-time tracking of movements.

Otherwise, we can also fear that these beacons intended for animals will be hijacked and used to spy on people.
