Estimated Battery Life

Lightbug Zero: Tiny GPS tracker
Lightbug Pro: Small GPS tracker with extroadinary battery life

Please note this is only an estimate. Actual battery life will vary.

We're proud to present our latest range of GPS trackers, with their unbeatable battery life, size and cost. They are some of the smallest in the world, but don't let the size fool you! Each one packs a battery and technology that will last months or years on a single charge.

All designed and built in the UK from the same modular core, each one of our products has been rigorously tested in the field.

We stand by our devices and are committed to delivering high quality technology that you can rely on for a long time. Trackers we built back in 2008 are still operational and supported today.

Despite the fact we've been doing this for over 15 years, our customers are constantly surprising us with new and innovative uses for our tracking technology. We've recently designed and built a tracker that can be mounted in a rocket and fired into a tornado... So if you need something a little different we'd love to hear from you.

Something for everyone

Tracking

Tracking for people

Caring for others is never easy. At Lightbug, we think peace of mind shouldn't cost the world or come with the burden of charging yet another device every day.

With a range of attachments, our small tracking devices are designed to be convenient and easy to use.

Animal Tracking

Worried your beloved pet will get lost on their next adventure or just curious as to what they get up to outside the house?

With intelligent battery saving mode inside the house and a versatile collar attachment, our small devices can locate them in an instant and only need charging every few weeks!

Vehicle Tracking

Theft, misuse and resource management are all common issues faced by vehicle owners and fleet operators.

Whilst we offer a wired option with ignition sensing, sometimes you just need a battery powered GPS tracker you can forget about.

Bicycle Tracking

Bike theft almost seems inevitable with over 400,000 cycles being stolen every year in the UK alone. But it doesn't have to be that way.

We offer small and discrete GPS tracking options for bike-sharing fleet operators and individuals alike.

Asset Tracking

Pallets, containers, tools, trailers... you name it, if it's portable, it can be misplaced or stolen

We offer a range of tracking devices to meet your size, price and battery life requirements. Take a look at how we can help you better manage your inventory

Drone Tracking

As drones / UAVs become more ubiquitous, so does the demand for a reliable and lightweight way of tracking them.

Weighing only 33g, Lightbug Zero is tiny and can send location updates every 4h for 4 months before needing to be charged.

Research Tracking

Over the years, we've helped a number of universities gather data for their research projects.

Most recently, we've teamed up with the incredible team of the Stormchasers to map the inside of a tornado

If you've got a interesting new sensor requirement we'd be happy to help.

Sensors

Fill Level Sensors

Building on our modular tracking technology, we've recently developed remote ultrasonic measurement devices.

These are currently being used to monitor bin fill levels to optimise collections and monitor drainage system to prevent floods

Environmental Sensors

Remote sensing of environmental data isn't anything new, but we like to think we do it right.

With both cellular and LoRa connectivity and battery life measured in years, our devices can quickly deliver data into your systems, letting you focus on on building intelligent applications.

LoRa Sensor Gateway

Need to collect data from different points but don't really want a cellular in each device? Take a look at LB Hub, a battery powered, 4G enabled LoRa gateway, for all your sensing and data transmission needs!

Our custom LoRa protocol supports up to 200 devices per hub. Not to be confused with LoRaWan.

Cycling Sensors

Another recent addition to our portfolio has been the integration of cycling sensors

Our RTHub devices can connect with heart rate and cadence sensors to provide you with a wealth of data, whether to display in a live stream of for analysis

Custom Sensors

We've only just scratched the surface of what our systems can do.

For techies among you, we can integrate any UART, I2C, One-Wire or Analog sensor, often within a matter of days. The data gets sent along with GPS data through our tried and tested platform, reducing your risk and time to market considerably.

CTA Buttons

"GSM Amazon Dash Button" would be understating it a little. Building on our modular IoT plaftorm, we can build cellular call to action buttons with geolocation capability to a specific price point.

Data is delivered into your systems, we handle hardware and provisioning so that you can build awesome applications

Technologies

Take a look inside our products
GNSS: GPS GLONASS BEIDOU GALILEO enabled icon

GNSS

GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou are all satellite constellations our devices can use to locate themselves, often to sub 1m accuracy.

GSM & 4G NBIoT / LTE-M connectivity icon

2G / 4G / NBIoT

Using the cellular networks, we ensure our products have the best chance of relaying their data, wherever in the world they may be

LoRa & LoRaWan connectivity icon

LoRa / LoRaWAN

For local deployments and more cost sensitive applications, our products can use LoRa to send and receive data.

Long battery life icon

Incredible battery life

Our devices are so low power that we have to factor battery self-discharge in our battery life estimates. With sleep current in the single-digit µA range, they are designed to last

WiFi indoor positioning icon

WPS

WPS or WiFi Positioning System allows our devices to locate themsevles indoors, even when there is no clear view of the sky.
