The Loc8tor Story
Loc8tor Ltd. is a UK based technology company that has developed and brought to market award-winning tagging, locating and tracking devices that help find track and locate important possessions and can even stop them from getting lost in the first place.
By blending the best of old and new technology Loc8tor provides the first affordable homing device of its kind that actually guides you which way to walk. Loc8tor tracking devices can be used across a myriad of personal and professional applications to tag, track and locate almost anything.
How Loc8tor came about
The original concept came from the real life situations of a busy household – from trying to keep track of three young active children out and about (Alert mode), to giving the kids the ability to contact a parent if there was a problem (Panic mode). On top of that, there was the need to find everyday items: keys, mobile phones, glasses, TV remotes (which went missing daily), and not forgetting the cat who would typically hide until the kids had gone to bed (Locate mode). The device evolved from there.
Diverse uses for diverse applications
For young and old, pet lovers to parents and gadget lovers to grandparents, Loc8tor is designed to be exceptionally easy to use and helps avoid that feeling of frustration when you mislay your valuables. Loc8tor's versatility means it can be used in almost any situation by simply attaching the tag to any item you want to protect.
10,000s of Loc8tor tracking devices and units have already been sold to date to customers in over 30 countries with the type of customers, applications it is used for and how it’s sold varying greatly.
Loc8tor devices are used in the following areas:
- Businesses : Locating important assets, finding mobile devices, security and loss prevention. Customers include numerous different types of businesses, Postal services and Waitrose to name a few.
- Security : Used by bodyguards, the Police, FBI and various other security services as well as protecting Cash in transit.
- Special Projects : We regularly take on custom projects. These have been hugely diverse from designing a super durable livestock tag, prototype car finder for a car manufacturer through to the simpler private labeling of our existing products.
