From tracking our daily steps to securing our homes with smart surveillance systems, the Internet of Things (IoT) has reshaped the way we interact with the world. As the IoT landscape proliferates, one area gaining significant traction is the realm of pet care, particularly with cellular-connected smart collars. At Velocity IoT, our innovative solutions are poised to redefine pet ownership in the age of connectivity.
The Rise of the Smart Collar
Over recent years, pet owners have increasingly turned to smart collars, which offer advanced features like location tracking, health monitoring, and behavior analysis. In 2022, the Smart Dog Collar market was valued at USD 660.47 million. With a projected CAGR of 27.53%, it’s anticipated to hit USD 2841.37 million by 2028. But this technology isn’t just for pets. The cattle industry uses similar systems due to rising dairy and beef consumption demands.
Clearly, smart collars and monitoring systems are making waves not just in pet care but in the broader livestock industry.
Why Cellular Connectivity?
Traditional RF (Radio Frequency) pet trackers, though offering a decent range, come with the disadvantage of being bulky and providing only approximate location readings. In contrast, smart collars integrated with cellular connectivity tap into existing cellular networks, offering broader, real-time tracking capabilities. While there might be a monthly fee associated with the use of a SIM card, the precision and expansive reach of cellular connectivity make it a superior choice for those wanting to keep a closer eye on their pets. With solutions like those from Velocity IoT, the advantages of cellular over RF become clear.
