Travel accessories company Cabeau, known for its award-winning travel pillows and accessories, has created a revolutionary new smart lock that can track both belongings and people from across the globe.
Revealed at a special Cabeau Experience launch event in Los Angeles before the Duty Free & Travel Retail Summit of the Americas, the Cabeau Track and Shield lock is described by the company as a “smart lock with the world’s most functional GPS tracking capability.”
Engineered with patented and patent-pending GPS lock technology, the Track and Shield offers multiple uses and is TSA- and government-approved to be safe for luggage hold.
The Track and Shield can track anyone and anything within 10 feet of accuracy even with no cell signal. The device features geofencing technology that can keep track of any object or person on which you place the lock, as well as patent-pending locking technology that geo and time stamps every time the lock is opened or closed.
The Track and Shield uses Narrowband Technology that allows extended texting ability 20 times farther than your cell phone, which is particularly valuable for when the user has no cell reception.
The Track and Shield also can, at the press of a button, send an emergency alert message burst showing your location and time, including a tracking link. As an added plus, it has an extended battery life of up to four months on a single charge.
David Sternlight, Cabeau CEO and Founder, said during the reveal event that the Track and Shield “packs a punch” in a 3 oz package with myriad uses for both travel and tracking.
“This product can do so many things. We started writing down all of the potential functionalities and we stopped at 18. And it could go on and on. This product really can and probably will save a lot of lives,” says Sternlight. “We’re really excited about it.”
Track and Shield will cost $199.99 with a service fee of $50 per year or $6.99 per month to have access to all of its functionalities. The app can be purchased on the apple and android stores.
The product will begin to rollout to the market in Q4 2019 and will be partially funded by a kickstarter campaign that will begin this month.
