Cats are mysterious animals. They're sneaky, silent, and extremely curious. With the Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker you can easily discover everything about your cat's secret life.
The Tractive IKATI allows cat owners to track their cat's location, no matter where their kitty decides to go. The device works together with its Smartphone Companion App and is based on an affordable PREMIUM subscription plan – via the Tractive GPS App - which shows cat owners their cat's live location directly on their smartphone or web browser.
By using the Tractive GPS App cat owners are also offered some Activity Monitoring and can also view their cat's location history to find out where their little furry vagabond has been going to. This allows you to check the usual places that your cat(s) visit via the App's heatmap.
Let's take a detailed look at this GPS Cat Tracker and check everything it has to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
The Tractive IKATI is a small and lightweight GPS Cat Tracker that weighs less than 1.1oz (30g) and is recommended for cats above 8.8 pounds (4kg).
This GPS cat tracker is shock resistant, and is also rated IPX7 waterproof, meaning that it actually is 100% waterproof.
This GPS Cat Tracker was designed with your cat's comfort in mind, coming equipped with a cat-collar friendly flexible rubber clip and mount that allows it to perfectly fit both wider and thinner cat collars, ultimately fitting most cat collars on the market.
Its rubber clip fits almost any collar width. Wider collars can be easily placed between the tracker's rubber clip and mount, while for thinner collars cat owners just need to put them through the tracker's two rectangular holes (on the sides of its rubber clip).
This ultimately allows the tracker to comfortably fit your feline’s neck without ever disturbing them.
The Tractive GPS has an integrated SIM card and works wherever your smartphone works, meaning that this GPS Cat Tracker will automatically try to connect with one of your local service providers.
The Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker features unlimited working range, working across any distance with no limitations whatsoever. In fact, you could track your cat from opposite sides of the world (and in over 150 countries worldwide by using its PREMIUM Subscription Plan).
BATTERY AND BATTERY LIFE
The Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker also comes equipped with a built-in interchangeable rechargeable battery that can last anywhere from 2 to 5 days, depending on both cellular signal and usage.
Furthermore, the tracker also comes equipped with an easy-to-use and easy-to-access battery latch. By pressing the 2 middle buttons found on the top and bottom of the tracker, users can open the tracker to recharge its interchangeable rechargeable battery.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX
Inside each package users will find everything they need to stay connected to their cat.
This includes: the Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker, the unit's Battery Charging Cable, and a User Manual.
Light & Sound Tracking
Via the Smartphone Companion App – the Tractive GPS App, which is available for both iOS and Android devices - cat owners can find the GPS cat tracker by triggering/using its built-in LED visual and sound features. This ultimately makes it way easier for you to locate the tracker either at night or in any dense area.
Thanks to cutting-edge technologies, the Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker can be located accurately and reliably from almost anywhere in the world.
Whether your pet is in the backyard or on the other side of the globe, this GPS Cat Tracker features LIVE Tracking with location updates every 2-3 seconds.
The cat tracker can also record your kitty's daily activity so that you can see detailed statistics of your cat's activity level.
The Tractive GPS App will show you how active, playful or calm your cat is, as well as how much time your cat's been sleeping. Within the App, users can also set activity goals for their cat(s).
Virtual Fence (Geofence)
If you're one of those open-minded cat owners that wants to allow your cat to wander freely, but you still get worried whenever they leave a certain safe area, then Tractive IKATI can also help you with that.
By using its Smartphone Companion App, you can define a Virtual Fence that works like a virtual set-limited perimeter, which will always get you instantly notified whenever your cat leaves that Virtually Limited Zone.
Users can set up to 5 Virtual Fences and decide whether each one of those is shown in a circular, rectangular or triangular shape. As stated above, as soon as your cat leaves your customized virtual safe area you will receive a smartphone notification.
Furthermore, not only can you view your kitty cat's current location, but also check the App's Location History feature to see where your cat has been before.
PREMIUM Public & Family Sharing
Lastly, if you ever wondered who else in your neighborhood, or maybe even if any of your family members have seen your cat, then the Tractive IKATI is once again the right answer for the problem.
This GPS cat tracker allows you to take advantage of its PREMIUM Public & Family Sharing feature, which allows you to share your pet's location with anyone you choose, including specific friends, family members, or maybe even neighbors and/or pet sitters.
The Tractive IKATI GPS Cat Tracker allows cat owners to track their cat's location, no matter where their kitty decides to go. This GPS tracker for cats features Light & Sound Tracking, LIVE Tracking, Activity Monitoring, Virtual Fence (Geofence), Location History, and PREMIUM Public & Family Sharing.
