How does the GPS tracker for dogs work?
Kippy EVO tracks your pet in the fastest and most accurate way possible, without distance limits and even in indoor spaces.
Kippy EVO has a GNSS receiver that interacts with GPS satellites orbiting the Earth to calculate its position, which will then be sent to the Kippy app via the telephone network.
Thanks to GSM-2G technology, Kippy EVO, using the cellular network, can locate your 4-legged friend wherever they are, with no distance limits. This is because it always searches for the best cellular network, so whenever your pet is in an area where there is a signal, they will always be tracked. What's more, the GPS + GSM tracker also use triangulation of phone cells and WiFi networks, so it can locate your four-legged friend's position even in covered spaces and in conditions critical for GPS.
See your pet's movements in real time and without any distance limits
Create a safe area that your animal cannot cross, such as your garden. You will receive an alert notification when the fence is crossed
Record walks, distance travelled, speed and altitude. All data is stored in the walks archive
You receive an alert notification from the app when the Kippy moves away from your phone's Bluetooth. You can know if your pet has moved too far away from you
Review their routes: Kippy saves your friend's locations over the last 2 months. You will be able to view the heat map of where they spent most of their time
BUILT-IN LED TORCH
Activate it through the app: your dog and cat will be visible during nighttime hours, making it easier to identify them in case of escape
Thanks to the proprietary algorithm developed in collaboration with experts from the Veterinary University of Bologna and Milan (DiMeVet), Kippy is able to monitor all the activities of your four-legged friend.
Kippy has a state-of-the-art 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope inside which allows it to detect your four-legged friend's movements:
- Running: running and intense activity
- Playing: play and agitated movements with jumps and jerks
- Walking: moments of activity and walking
- In motion: animal not very active, slow movements
- Relaxing: animal's relaxation or immobility
- Kcal: Calories consumed during the day
- Steps: number of steps
- Jumps: number of jumps
Kippy is able to define how much activity your animal does overall based on daily activity data and factors characteristic of your animal such as breed, attitude, weight, age, sex and the current season.
You can then monitor whether your four-legged friend has reached their customised activity target, which is recommended to preserve their physical and psychological well-being.
HOURLY, WEEKLY, AND MONTHLY BREAKDOWN
You can view all the activities performed by your four-legged friend at different times of the day and night, including the previous days.
