LOS ANGELES, CA (October 10, 2013) – Locca is the world’s most sophisticated GPS locator with precise in- and out-door locating technologies that allow users to stay in contact with everyone and everything by using a smartphone app, tablet or desktop. Launching first in Germany and Austria, Locca is now available to the US market as its cutting-edge location technology is operational worldwide for international use.
“Within a year and a half, we developed a tracker unifying qualities of modern design, minimal constructive, intuitive handling, extensive battery service life, and a prime tracking technique,” says Locca Founder and CEO Julian Breitenecker. “Locca is the world’s smallest, most sophisticated, lightest and farthest reaching tracking software, beating competitors whose range only reaches thirty meters, with the combination of its five superior tracking technologies.”
There are two varieties of Locca, the LoccaMini perfect for locating small objects and animals and the LoccaPhone, which is most suited for infants, children and the elderly. Both come with a pre-installed SIM card, beeper for audio-locating, motion detector, LED flashlight, energy saving mode, as well as waterproof and shockproof housing.
As short in length as a matchstick and weighing only twenty-three grams, the LoccaMini utilizes AGPS, GSM, Bluetooth Low Energy and FSK tracking to stay up to date on the location of objects such as keys, bags, bikes and animals with a docking station featuring the HomeZone and a thirty-day standby feature. When the target leaves a designated safe area into deemed tracking areas, the FSK technology switches to GSM, users are alerted, and users can begin tracking the new updated location in real-time with AGPS.
The LoccaPhone, best suitable for children and the elderly, uses WiFi tracking in addition to the other locating technologies LoccaMini utilizes. Furthermore, it comes with a stronger battery life, emergency button, speed dialing, and a microphone and speakers for calls. The emergency button as well as communication features allows those targets to get in touch with users with the touch of a button.
Locca offers five different customized packages, such as the BuddyPack, BikePack, CarPack, PetPack and StuffPack. The BuddyPack includes the LoccaPhone as well as accessories for a belt or lanyard keeping children set for any adverse events. The BikePack includes a LoccaMini with a casing for placement below the bike’s beverage holder. The CarPack contains a LoccaPhone as well as car charger and the PetPack, a LoccaMini, collar, and docking station to keep your car and dog safe, respectively. Lastly, the StuffPack contains a LoccaMini with flexible mounting options for consumers to place the locator on a variety of objects.
Locca is in the presale phase with the smartphone app estimated to be in the iTunes store by November and the product to hit the market in December 2013. Running its first market test, Locca has launched an Indiegogo campaign to spread the word about the LoccaMini and grow support for the development of the LoccaPhone.
