Locate your stuff! The Asset Tracker Kit contains all of the hardware you need to build a GSM + GPS location tracker for your most prized possessions. In addition to a GPS Shield and Electron, the Asset Tracker Kit comes with a weatherproof enclosure, so it'll keep your electronics safe from the dust, dirt, and moisture of the great outdoors. Keep your bicycle, boomerang, and backpack safe--satellite lock onto this bargain project kit today!
Our new Asset Tracker v2 shield has the following new features and improvements:
- Improved GPS performance
- Smaller enclosure for space-constrained tracking applications
- Expandable with Grove, Seeed's huge library of sensors and firmware libraries
- Satellite support for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou
The Asset Tracker Kit comes with a Particle SIM card with service in more than 100 countries worldwide, and includes 3 months of Particle's 1MB monthly data plan for IoT devices. All Electrons also include Particle's development tools, access to a cloud platform with messaging, and a SIM dashboard for managing and updating your new connected hardware.
The Electron is a GSM-only device, and does not support CDMA networks. Some US carriers are planning to sunset their 2G networks beginning in 2017, so we recommend the Electron 3G (Americas) for our customers in the US.
We offer two types of Electron 3G Kits—one for North and South America (850/1900 MHz) and one for Europe/Asia/Africa (900/1800/2100 MHz). Check the full list of compatible countries for the location in which your product will be deployed.
