HidNSeek iPhone app is out, Android on his way

A few week ago I’ve announced that I’ve started to help HidNSeek in their great attempt to provide a low consumption GPS tracker. As a member of the project, I’ve take part of the client and server backend. The first results are here: the HidNSeek app is available on the App store and the Android version is on the way.
The backend is based on the OpenSensorCloud platform (OpennSensourCloud.com) and handle all the interaction between the devices and the Sigfox network.
The client is a mobile application, that could interact with your device. You can create alert on Geofencing area, motion, you can get the latest positions of the device, and it is fully customizable with nice picture of what you are tracking. The App is already available on the App Store.

Why I’ve joined HidNSeek project as technical advisor

A few month ago, I’ve discovered a great project that just started on Kickstarter : HidNSeek, which was an innovative tracking device, based on Sigfox. If you read my blog, you probably now that I am a big supporter of Sigfox and I find their approach very smart. I met the HidNseek team during the last Connected Object conference, and we immediately had a good fit.

HidNSeek is a GPS tracker, and thanks to Sigfox, the energy consumption is very low and you can have several monthes of activity without charging. The other advantage is that you don’t need any GSM subscription, while having a good coverage .

The campaign was successful, and I’ve proposed to help them and support the development. I will take part of the mobile client development (iPhone/Android) as well as the backend, and use my previous experience both in mobile and big data to make this a great product.

The traction is incredible, and there is a lot of great on-going discussions with potential partners and customers, beyond the initial Kickstarter campaign in the #IOT field.

I am a strong believer in the potential of connected object not only in B2C markets but even more in B2B.

So let’s wait a little bit to see the first results of these efforts coming into the market…..
