Every year we see an abundance of pet technology at CES, including tons of trackers. What sets Felloo Aside from the typical GPS enabled collar, its tiny size and stylish design. Most of the highly-rated cat and dog GPS trackers are bulkier and uglier. Hence, it had to take a French tech startup to get cats fashionable while maintaining their safety.
According to the company, a cat is lost every 12 minutes (14 million cats in France) and we all know someone who has lost a cat (myself included). There are approximately 93 million cats in the United States. Knowing that every third cat parent has shown an interest in their pet's location, we bet Ubiscale will experience good traction with Felloo.
The tracking device comes with impressive technical specifications such as the long 30-day battery life, a challenge for such a small chassis (1.35 inch diameter). Typically the top rated GPS cat trackers on the market only last 7 days or less (2-5 days average) on a single charge, or 20 days for the bulky designs. Unlike similar products, Felloo is assortment free and you get a high fashion device at a great price without a subscription. Felloo will be available in spring 2021 for 99 euros.
How does it work?
Felloo collects both GPS and activity monitor and collects data through the Smart Base, which is connected to the home's Wi-Fi network. Cat owners visualize the information from a mobile companion application.
Thanks to the bell function, you can easily find your cat wherever it is hiding in the house.
If your cat is within range of the base (approx. 300 m), the location is immediately displayed on your phone. If the pet exceeds the 1000-foot range, users can activate an advanced geolocation feature for one month for 9.90 euros and there is no subscription requirement. The advanced search mode is only activated if the cat is lost out of range of the base.
As soon as the cat comes back you can see the places it has visited with the distances traveled in the mobile app. With the activity monitoring feature, cat owners can see if their pets are sleeping well, active or resting, and receive notifications of behavioral changes from the Felloo app.
Founded in 2015 by engineers Mikaël Guenais (Founder, CEO & CTO) and Samuel Ryckewaert (Co-Founder, Business Development & Marketing), Ubsicale is a startup focused on the design of IoT devices. As a participant in a current Galileo research program, Ubiscale is known for Ubi.cloud, its location technology that optimizes the energy efficiency of GPS systems for the Internet of Things.
If you are registered at CES 2021, you can connect to Ubiscale and ask questions about Felloo to Mikael Guenais, Samuel Ryckewaert or Clarisse Malecot (media) from the attendee directory on the CES website (11-14 January)
