Invoxia LongFi GPS Tracker is a small standalone GPS Tracker that you can easily hide in your vehicle or with any goods that you wish to protect from theft or loss.
It sends its positions through Helium's decentralized LoRa network, called "The People's Network". Anyone can setup a Helium hotspot at their home and earn Helium's proprietary crypto called HNT, from participating in the network, and earning for the connectivity provided to others.
Please note that the Helium network is still rolling out, so coverage in your area might not yet be optimal. However, each day a significant amount of hotspots are added globally so coverage should improve. We highly recommend that you check coverage before buying.
When the LongFi GPS Tracker is moving, it will send its position regularly, that you can visualize in the Invoxia GPS app, available for iOS and Android.
From the app, you can see the history of movements, and setup alerts to be notified:
- In case of suspicious movement or if your vehicle gets tipped over (anti-theft alerts)
- If your Tracker leaves or enters a given zone (geofencing alerts)
- If your Tracker has moved significantly in terms of distance.
The Tracker intelligently combines different technologies to locate itself: Bluetooth when your smartphone is nearby, Wifi positioning/triangulation in urban areas (by detecting the Wifi hotspots around and deducting its position), and GPS as a last resort.
Please note that it does not use Wifi to communicate its position.
You will need your smartphone to be connected to the Internet to visualize your Tracker's latest positions.
