Image is coming as soon as first devices arrives from manufacturer…

Only 20 different component. What could you except for that?

For use in EU and India. Suitable band is software controlled. Fully hackable open source software design with CircuitPython language. Ready to use. Program includes advanced power saving techniques. Extreme small physical size yet powerful tracking device. Free subscription to mapping service. And there’s more!

Includes panic button which can send GPS coordinates to pre-selected recipients through SMS and email. Includes battery level monitoring service through LoRaWAN uplink. You can select where and how to send that data. It is automatically saved to database like all other messages from device.

Advantages to use CircuitPython includes but not limited to:
Perfect choice for data logging applications. Internal storage is seen as USB storage device. Easily update your code. Since your code lives on the disk drive, you can edit it whenever you like. And Python is fastest-growing programming language. It’s taught in schools and universities.

I’m 35 years old programmer from Tampere, Finland.

This is my personal web site. 

I work on electronic design, construction and programming. It is also my hobby. On this site I will present some of the hobby projects I have made. I also have a radio amateur qualification. Self-learning and experimentation through hobby has since taught much more.

Embedded systems have always attracted me. Nowadays they are everywhere. It refers to a device with a microprocessor and program code in it. Almost all my hobby projects are like that.
