Halo Collar with Cesar Millan, developers of the world’s most advanced pet safety and training technology, has announced they will be premiering the new Halo Collar at Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles on Oct. 26, in collaboration with KORE, a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and worldwide IoT Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS). Founded by inventor Ken Ehrman and dog expert Cesar Millan, the Halo Collar provides the ultimate boundary training for dogs, big and small, for the ultimate peace of mind.
“When I heard about Halo, my dream was to help create this amazing tool—the Halo Collar—that can communicate with a dog using their instincts. I also knew that it was essential to provide a program that would teach people how to train their own dogs to recognize boundaries, because practicing safety starts with the human who teaches it,” said Millan.
The Halo Collar replaces the need for an electric fence, with all of the technology being held directly in the collar. Owners can now secure their dogs in even remote locations like a lake or the beach. Halo Collar also provides smart training and an activity tracker to ensure a 360-degree level of care for dogs.
“Working with KORE has been great from day one. They allow Halo to provide real-time dog safety and location data over cellular network technology to our customers at less than $5/collar per month,” said Ken Ehrman, Halo Founding and Managing Partner. “KORE helps us ensure Halo Collar stays continuously ‘connected’ and roams seamlessly on the CAT-M1 LTE network – so the customer has instant two-way connections with their dog over cellular. With KORE, we can even cost effectively and seamlessly provide wireless upgrades over cellular. They have also helped us internationalize our product and it now works in Canada and soon globally.”
Halo Collar is the only technology in the industry that automatically downloads daily satellite updates to improve GPS accuracy and lets you create up to 20 wireless fences with just a few taps of your finger.
Halo Collar selected KORE for resilient connectivity that works out of the box with seamless communications and minimal gaps in coverage. KORE provides Halo Collar’s cellular connectivity in the USand Canada, as well as test units in the EU, with plans for global expansion. In addition to the increased network connectivity, the new Halo Collar features a more rugged design, increased durability and a longer battery life.
“As we move further into what I call the ‘Decade of IoT,’ transformational products like the Halo Collar will provide tremendous benefits to people and pets all over the world,” commented Romil Bahl, KORE President and CEO. “We are proud to support such a tremendous IoT-for-good use case. As a dog-owner myself, I know that some 10 million dogs run away from American homes alone each year. Keeping our pets secure is a great cause, and we are delighted to be a part of this innovative solution.”
