Yabby Wifi Sniffer Locates Assets Indoors

Digital Matter

We have been asked numerous times for a device that can be used to locate items indoors – where even the best GPS will not work – such as in a warehouse or basement. This version of the Yabby uses a WiFi sniffer to scan for WiFi access points and the signal strength from each one. This information is then used to triangulate a position which is typically accurate to 100 feet / 30m in metropolitan areas. And this can all be done in typically less than 3 seconds, using a lot less power than a typical GPS fix.

This WiFi sniffing combined with the new low power capabilities of the LTE-M module allows us to shrink the design size down even smaller and use smaller AAA batteries.

Some use cases we have been asked for:

In summary, the Yabby WiFi Sniffer offers:

  • Locate assets using WiFi Sniffing (works indoors!)
  • LTE-M / NB-IoT device (also available in 2G)
  • 3D accelerometer
  • Powered by 3 x 1.5V AAA Lithium batteries (off the shelf)
  • Up to 3 years asset location (once daily)
  • IP67 rugged weather-proof housing
  • Small, compact and easy to install and conceal

The Yabby Wifi Sniffer is now available for testing!
