Millions of Australians are already part of our incredible finding network as a way to find anything you’ve lost: from a set of keys to the family dog. Now we’re adding another Locator product to our finding family. One that’s set to find your stuff better than ever before thanks to our LTE-M Mobile Network.

We love how much Aussies have already embraced our existing Locator line-up. Thousands of things have been found thanks to the existing Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Locator tags.

Since launch, however, we’ve been teasing the release of a product that combines the existing Locator Network capabilities with our incredible IoT network to help find stuff in more places than ever before. We’re excited to announce that it’s now available for everyone.

Meet the Locator Cat-M1 Tag

With the sleek and award-winning design Locator has become known for, the new Locator Cat-M1 Tag is designed to push your finding experience further than ever.

Our incredible LTE-M Mobile Network already powers millions of connected devices, with thousands more being added every single day on average. Now that network is being put to work on Locator.

The new Locator Cat-M1 Tag reports the location of tagged items through the combined capabilities of our Bluetooth Locator Community and our world-leading cellular IoT network, improving the ability for Locator to help to track your stuff down. 

Customers can simply attach it to personal items to help keep find them or business owners can use the Cat-M1 Tag to locate assets across different sites to organize where tools or trailers are needed for different jobs to help reduce costs and improve customer experience.

With the Telstra Locator app on your smartphone app, you can see the last-known approximate location and the 30-day history of any item you’ve tagged. You can also be alerted if the Cat-M1 Tag moves outside of a pre-determined “geofence”, meaning that items with a stored and fixed location are safer than ever. Customers can also set up zones and notifications, so that when a Locator Cat-M1Tag is detected by the Telstra Locator network inside or outside of a zone, an in-app notification is sent advising that the Cat-M1 Tag has arrived at, or left that zone.

The Cat-M1 Tag is designed for everything from expensive toolboxes, boats and even pricey hobby items like racing bikes and golf clubs. Owners of caravans and trailers can also keep an eye on their stuff when it’s stored at a remote location.

The Telstra Locator Cat-M1 Tag features Bluetooth, LTE-M and GPS connectivity, an accelerometer, a multi-colour status LED, a 1000mAh rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery with days-long battery life (depending on the level of movement detected when in use) and, with the optional accessories, can be mounted or attached to your valuables with ease. Designed for durability and long battery life, the Cat-M1 Tag is built to weather almost any conditions, with IP67-rated water resistance, dust resistance, and shock tolerance.

The Cat M1 Tag can be purchased outright for $190 and with a $5 per month on top of the current Locator subscription rate. Telstra Locator Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tags are currently offered as a starter kit of two Bluetooth and one Wi-Fi tag for a monthly subscription of $10 per month.
