TELUS and Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) have announced that TELUS will further connect Canadian consumers with the ability to track all that is valuable to them using the new TELUS Track+ service, the companies said.
Utilizing Smith Micro´s SafePath® connected life platform, the portable and transferrable TELUS Track+ easily attaches to bikes, vehicles, pets, luggage, purses, and almost anything else a person wants to keep track of and locate and provides updates and alerts through a mobile app. Most significantly, TELUS Track+ brings the invaluable peace of mind and comfort that comes from knowing where what´s important to you is at all times.
TELUS Track+ is available for TELUS customers to purchase online and provides some tangible benefits over competing tracker devices. First, it is driven by a platform that powers one of the industry´s location and parental control platforms, SafePath.
TELUS Track+ customers will use their mobile phones to set up commonly traveled safety areas, to receive alerts when a TELUS Track+ device has left or entered one of the established safety areas and to use that information to immediately locate pets and other valuables without incurring roaming charges when used throughout Canada and the United States.
Additional features, such as a light sensor that notifies users if a bag has been opened or tampered with, and tracker ringing, which allows users to locate the TELUS Track+ if it is out of sight or misplaced, complete a comprehensive and robust tracking solution. Lastly, TELUS Track+ comes fully equipped with all accessories necessary for users to customize their TELUS Track+ based on their needs and how they want to use the device.
Smith Micro develops software to simplify and enhance the mobile experience, providing solutions to some of the wireless service providers and cable MSOs around the world. For more information, visit www.smithmicro.com.
