With the integration of the internet into our modern lifestyles, we are constantly finding new ways of utilizing instant worldwide connections with what used to be typical daily activities. One of the most innovative ways in which this is happening is the Internet of Things, which basically connects physical “Things” to online servers for tracking and easy automation.

This is why we stock the Particle Electron Asset Tracker GPS 2G Kit, designed to be integrated into existing objects to track their locations – regardless of their location. This allows you to monitor vehicles, valuable assets or even personal objects like car keys or wallets. This is achieved with a basic GPS kit and a SIM card, which records the GPS Coordinates in real-time and sends the location to a central server in the same way that a cell phone GPS works.

And while this kit does require the use of data over a network, the data that needs to be transferred is very lightweight, with most of these trackers using less than 1MB per month. This is a small price to pay for constant tracking capabilities, and can save you a lot of money when compared to the price of losing valuable assets.

Particle Electron Asset Tracker GPS Kit – 2G Afr/Eur/Asia

Particle is a comprehensive Internet of Things platform that is scalable, easy to use and secure, which was started as a Kickstarter campaign in as early as 2013. It was founded with the intent to make IoT easy and accessible for everyone, and by many people’s standards they have successfully achieved that, with over 70,000 engineers in over 170 countries utilising the Particle platform – including several Fortune 500 companies.

One of the recent utilisations of the potential of Particle tools is how it was implemented to connect a vital water-valve to the internet, allowing it to monitor the weather, identify the incoming Hurricane Irma, and prepare to move the water to where it needed to go – before the rain had even begun to fall in the area. This is just one of the many amazing examples of how Particle IoT can benefit more than just businesses or developers, as well as how Particle’s vision of IoT being integrated into almost everything – both online and offline – is quickly becoming a reality.
