RALEIGH — Always worried about your kids or animals getting lost? Well, this may be the solution.
WISER Systems, a startup based out of Raleigh that provides real-time asset tracking in any environment, has unveiled the new product line called Find-ly.
Like WISER’s industrial Locator system, Find-ly generates highly accurate real-time location data. It can report “with inches-level precision,” the company says, a person or animal’s point of entry and exit, immobility, or proximity to sensitive or dangerous items. Alerts could also be created based on erratic, out-of-pattern movements.
“We’re thrilled to be showing Find-ly to the world, especially since Find-ly represents lots of interest in markets where we haven’t operated before, including pet tracking and wearables for older adults,” said WISER CEO Dr. Elaine Rideout, in a statement. “We’re particularly excited about the business we’ve already lined up in the assisted living and older adult care market. Find-ly can do a lot to enhance care and protection for elderly patients and members of senior living centers.”
Initial partner and elder care customer plans for Find-ly include using the system to autonomously report whether patients are visited or checked on in person, establishing alerts for exit of areas like memory care units, and registering health checks and fall-detection.
WISER staff first demonstrated Find-ly’s capabilities during a sponsored presentation at TagoIO Connect 2020, a collocated event with the IoT Evolution Expo taking place this week. WISER will also showcase its ultra-wideband (UWB) Locator solution throughout IoT Evolution, demonstrating new system features such as a geo-staking system that pairs GPS coordinates with WISER’s localized, inch-level data.
The IoT Evolution Expo is taking place at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward Country Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. WISER will exhibit in booth 629.
