Panasonic has launched a Bluetooth IoT tagging solution called Seekit. The device is a utility product and is actually a Bluetooth tracker that allows users to simply tag their valuables. The device connects via Bluetooth to the Seekit app which allows users to find them without any hassle.

Seekit features Separation Indicator, Proximity Guidance, Last Seen Location, Bi-directional Tracking, and Voice Alerts with High Alert Mode for tracking; Low Alert Mode to avoid unnecessary alerts. Using Bluetooth v5.0  for better connectivity, and battery utilization, the device can last for about 12 – 18 months without a charge, depending on the variant and usage.

 

Seekit will be available in two variants — Seekit Edge and Seekit Loop, and is priced at Rs 1,599 and Rs 1,299 respectively. The device has been developed at Panasonic’s India Innovation Centre, and will be available starting December 1st week.

The Separation Indicator feature alerts the user as soon as the valuable is disconnected, reminding that the valuable is being left behind. These alerts can be customised in the user’s own voice too, especially useful in case of multiple Seekit devices. With bi-directional tracking feature, not only does the Seekit help you find the tagged belongings but you can find your phone too by just double pressing the button on the tracker. Proximity Guidance would guide you towards your valuable. If you leave your phone behind, Seekit will buzz and glow reminding you to go get it.

If the Separation Alert is missed, you can just open your Seekit app and check the Last Seen Location of your disconnected valuable. In case of theft, the Seekit Community of app users can trace the valuable with the help of Crowd GPS technology. Just by pressing the button on Seekit thrice you can send an SOS Alert to three contacts with your GPS location. The Seekit device also comes with a Selfie Button, eliminating the struggle to find the perfect angle and click it.

The portable device features with IP65 for protection from rains. IT uses a coin cell battery that eliminates the hassle of daily charging.
