About

FEATURED ON: 

Your Pup's Best Friend.

Revolutionize the way you care about your pups and bring you peace of mind.

Dogs are known to be human’s best friend and we all love our pups. Truth be told, we often see them as our kids and are constantly wondering if there’s anything more we can do to learn more about their wellbeing and keep them as healthy and happy as possible.  

As human, we need our UP or Fitbit to track our activity and understand ourselves better, and for our beloved pups, we also need something to help us keep tabs on their behavior, activity level and whereabout. We care about their welfare the way we care about our own and would love to share that same love and care for our pups with other dog lovers as well.

What if there’s something that allows us to do things like that? 

With a CTO who dedicated his free time fighting for animal rights and volunteering at an animal shelter, our  team really took the development of Lucky Tag to heart.

A Holistic Approach To Take Care Of Your Best Friend

Lucky Tag
Lucky Tag

Lucky Tag is a colorful, cute, on-collar tracker that gives you detailed insights into your pup’s activity level, behavior pattern and trends over time. It also recognizes the temperature your pup is in, locates his or her whereabouts, and encourages interaction with other loving dog owners like you.

With it, you can obtain in-depth insights into your pup’s life whether you are around or not and be notified when further actions are needed. You can check in on your beloved pups whenever, wherever.

Besides taking care of your best friend in a healthier way, Lucky Tag also allows you to locate your pup with the help of others.

Dog lovers who own the Lucky Tag app on their smartphones can now help you find your beloved pup by messaging and guiding you to him or her. You can also use the app to exchange contacts and engage conversations with other dog owners and start building new friendships. 

Lucky Tag is all about your pup and knowing what’s going on with him or her. 

 Lucky Tag does more than just tracking and monitoring your pup’s activity, it also embodies a collaborative searching feature that helps you find your lost pup and engage with other dog owners.

TRACKING ACTIVITY, INACTIVITY & HEALTH

Lucky Tag tracks the daily walking, running activity and inactive rest periods of your pup. Our supported app presents you with an eye-catching visual snapshot of your pup’s activity highlighting the data and details that matter. 

How has he or she been feeling? Has she walked, run, played, or rested over the course of a day? How have things been trending over a certain period of time?

SENSING AMBIENT TEMPERATURE

With the Lucky Tag device and app, you can understand your pup’s health by tracking his or her activity level that is correlated with the surrounding temperature. When the ambient temperature is high and the activity level of your pup seems low, you know he or she might be feeling drowsy and it’s time to give him or her some water and go take a walk.

FINDING NEARBY VET

The Lucky Tag device and app took the activity monitoring feature to the next level with the “Finding Nearby Vet” feature. With it,, you can get a better sense of when your pup is most active, active or inactive. 

When irregularity occurs, a warning message will pop up on your phone and “Nearby Vet” is just one click away. No more googling or yelping. 

Moreover, share the information collected with your vet to make better healthcare decisions for your pup and take necessary actions.

FIND MY DOG VIA COMMUNITY

According to National Humane Society and the National Council of Pet Population Study and Policy, over 10 million pets get lost or stolen in the U.S. every year and only one-tenth of them get found and reunite with their owners.

As dog lovers ourselves, we were saddened by this heartbreaking statistics and have decided to take on a more proactive approach to help prevent missing dogs from happening. We know that nerve-wracking and heart-broken feeling you have when your pup wanders off and you have no idea where to find him or her. Lucky Tag now comes to the rescue. 

When searching for your pup with Lucky Tag, you are not the only one searching for it, it’s a search party for everyone who has the device. Once you send out a notification to the Lucky Tag community, with collaborative effort, all Lucky Tag app owners within the network get notified and work together to help you locate your pup. The more, the merrier.

Be a good Samaritan and help each other out.

INTERACT WITH OTHER PUP OWNERS

We are trying to build a big community for the Lucky Tag family. Every member has his or her profile with their beloved pup. Within the community, you get to exchange information and interact with others like you. 

Or, you can even help search for their lost pups. Who knows, this might just be the start of a new friendship.

HOW IS LUCKY TAG DIFFERENT

The core of Lucky Tag is beacon technology. Every Lucky Tag has an unique ID that is configured for each dog and constantly sends out Bluetooth signals as far as 250 feet for smart phones nearby to detect and identify the ID. 

Lucky Tag tracks and logs your pup’s activity level as well as ambient temperature uninterruptedly while syncing the data with your smart phone, which can last up to 10 days.

With the "Find My Dog" feature of Lucky Tag, it helps you locate your missing pup with the collaborative effort of Lucky Tag devices near by.  By taking advantages of the multiplied distance of all Lucky Tag devices, the search range is potentially limitless. 

What makes the Lucky Tag even cooler is the social feature of the Lucky Tag app. You can also use it to pinpoint close-by Lucky Tag owners and exchange contacts with one another. If there’s an user within 150 feet and the bluetooth is on on both sides, you can send him or her a message even without 3G or WiFi.

Prior to Lucky Tag, we’ve already had experiences in developing beacon-technology-powered products for different fields. Yet, as dog lovers ourselves, we are eager to bring this technology to our best friend and make a difference to the way we take care of them.

Now, we need your support to spread the words, invite friends and family to join our community so that we can take it to the next level and make it available for all dog lovers like you.

With your support, we can:

  • promote responsible dog caring
  • help you monitor your pup’s activities, notify you when something is up and take proactive measures to care for him or her
  • continue to dedicate our effort and time in perfecting the Lucky Tag as well as developing a new platform that benefits other kind of pets 
  • build and expand the Lucky Tag community to help search for lost pups and reunite them with worried owners  
  • provide you early access to our Kickstarter specials with attractive and affordable pricing

In addition to the Lucky Tag app and what’s mentioned above, we are also planning on offering a Lucky Tag hub to help you receive real-time activity updates on your pup, store the data and automatically sync it to the cloud so that you can access any time anywhere in the near future.

It is in our heart to promote fun yet responsible dog caring and improving the lives of our beloved pups the way they bring joy to us.

If we are fortunate enough to win your hearts and reach the funding goal, we will be working on providing more features that will perfect the Luck Tag experience.

Due to the enormous amount of feedback we received, we had an internal meeting and decided to re-allocate our resources and speed up the app development process and make an android app available as soon as the funding goal is reached. 

We also adjusted the stretch goal accordingly and added a Lucky Tag Mini into the pack for smaller size dogs.

-Goal 1- 45,000- Lucky Tag Mini: We know a lot of you have smaller, super cute pups and we heard you. Despite the amount of effort and resources we need to put into re-tooling for a smaller Lucky Tag, we've decided to do it anyways. It is you who we care about.

-Goal 2- 60,000- Lucky Tag APP “Off-the-Grid” Chatting: Exploit the fun of free instant messenger that does not require any Wifi or 3G coverage as long as you are within the bluetooth range. With this add-on feature, you can chat with any Lucky Tag users nearby without any data connection or traces of conversation.

-Goal 3- 70,000- Lucky Tag Hub: The hub automatically syncs data on the Lucky Tag device to the cloud via wifi. Owners will be able to remotely access the data and receive real-time updates.

Lucky Tag started with a group of pet lovers from both technical and creative background hoping to create something that is beneficial to their pups. With wearables being the talk of the market and our expertise in beacon technology, it hit us, “why not do what we do best and create an useful wearable for our pups?”

After months of testing and refining the concept, we narrowed it down to 3 major features: Dog’s Health Tracker, Find My Dog and Social Interaction Between Dog Owners.

Yet, the best part is: 

This idea just got patented and we are now brining it to everyone with an affordable and competitive price so that we can all have peace of mind when it comes to our fluffy friend.

That’s why we designed Lucky Tag.

Design

Lucky Tag consists of a core unit and a strap. It is super adorable and comes in 8 fun colors. 

Not only is it cute and eye-catching but also very light and sturdy with a rugged, waterproof casing.

As amazing as it sounds, there also lies the most important question of all- Is it safe?

To address that issue, we adopted the FDA-certified non-allergic, soft silicone. It is completely safe, non toxic and can be easily and securely attached to any collar to avoid being bitten off or broken by pups themselves. 

Technology

Because we care about our pups as much as we care about ourselves, we have decided to use the best sensor chips we could find, along with temperature sensor and G sensor to automatically collect and record the data detected onto our Mobile Beacons. 

On top of that, we also managed to provide wide RF search range without consuming much power.  Unlike those GPS-centric devices which consumes lots of power, we designed Lucky Tag in a way that you don't need to change it for at least another 4 to 6 months and we use the most common CR2032 battery which does not require weekly charging. In English, it saves lots of power and that's the beauty of applying beacon technology!  

Lucky Tag is iOS and Android-compatible and devices must be using Apple iOS 7 or 8 or Android 4.3 or higher with Bluetooth 4.0. 

We have ample experience in GPS and RF technology, not to mention the fact that the Airyzone Mobile Beacon we designed has temperature sensing capability as well as low power-consumption. 

For the past year, our Mobile Beacon has been successfully applied to various industries, such as semi-conductor manufacturing, transportation technology and smart shopping.

Learning from the experiences, we decided to further utilize it and embed it onto our most exciting product ever- Lucky Tag.

As of now, we have already completed the followings:

And to move forward, we need your support!

Please do pledge and help spread the words, we will really appreciate it!

          

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenges we are facing would be the limitation of beacon technology which the "Find My Dog" feature of Lucky Tag is based on. It relies on the collaborative support and power of a mass community. Meaning, if there are more people using it within a certain range, the higher the density, the better the feature works. However, if there are only a couple of users, then the feature will not be able to fully function. And, that is exactly why we need your support to help us build and grow the community.
Please back us and be part of the revolution.
