Locca can be used in many different fields. We did extensive market research and identified these 5 categories that matter most to many people.
When it comes to energy efficiency, Locca Locators are very intelligent, guaranteing a battery runtime of up to 1 month. So what’s our top secret to energy efficiency? Thanks to our proprietary algorithm, Locca uses its advanced energy technology to offer exact locating and long battery runtime.
During the first roll-out phase in 2013, we have special contracts with telecommunication operators of most European countries, USA and Canada. The Locca location service for those countries is included in every Locca Pack!
To use the Locca devices in other regions than Europe, USA and Canada, you can purchase our individual country packages. We are working on getting special contracts with more countries. The coverage of our Locca Packs will therefore increase throughout 2014 (details will follow as update on indiegogo, on our website and social media sites).
In 2013 and begin of 2014, the Locca Packs cover the following countries:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Channel Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Repulic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Martinique, Monaco, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Réunion, Romania, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Martin (French part), San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA.
We created special packages for our indiegogo supporters, which include a LoccaMini or LoccaPhone device (depending on the pack), all accessories necessary for the specific field of application and the SIM card service fee for 6 months.
Click on the perk to proceed directly to the check-out:
All indiegogo perks include 6 months of service, i.e. we will charge you a monthly service fee only after the first 6 months of operation.
There are two different fees, depending on whether you have a pack including a LoccaMini or LoccaPhone. The costs for LoccaPhone are higher, since our service covers not only data but also voice traffic.
All supporters who want to buy more than 1 Locca Pack will get a special discount. The discount applies on your total monthly bill, no matter if you purchased only LoccaMinis, LoccaPhones or a combination of them.
You can easily pause the service with one click in the Locca app. You will not be charged when the service is on hold.
Locca subscription is pre-paid, there is no service contract, no hidden fees and you can cancel anytime.
All Locca devices have a built-in SIM card, similar to your mobile phone, because our world class location and communication services create data traffic (to use location service) for the LoccaMini and additional voice traffic (to make phone calls) for the LoccaPhone.
For this communication and locating service we have to charge you a small monthly fee.
The monthly fee is a flat rate service fee and includes unlimited locating service and up to 100 minutes of voice connection nationally. There are NO further roaming costs for data traffic!
For the last 2 years we have been working together with the best engineers, designers and software developers to create world class locators with an intuitive handling and that you can use for any field of application.
We have fully functional prototypes of the LoccaMini and the smartphone apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone will be available in the App Store in November 2013.
We are now ready for mass production of the LoccaMini (for pets, bike, stuff) and this requires us to raise money from the incredible IndieGoGo platform, which has helped many companies to successfully launch their products and services.
We need to raise a minimum of €75,000 ($100,000) to manufacture the first production run.
The great news is that with your support and a successful IndieGoGo campaign we will immediately start producing the LoccaMini and begin shipping it to you before Christmas 2013.
The LoccaPhone is not completely finished; as we focused our resources on LoccaMini during the last months, in order to quickly supply you with the first Locca products.
Our engineers are currently working on the LoccaPhone prototype. After extensive product testing, we will be ready to ship the first LoccaPhones in February 2014.

1. Why is there a monthly fee? Other trackers offer a free service!
Many locating devices currently available on the market, are simple Bluetooth-trackers (work only within a 30-150 meters range) or pure GPS devices offering only medium accuracy.
The Locca locating devices combine the world’s best locating technologies that guarantees the most accurate positioning. Locca is more than just a passive GPS tracker. Locca communicates regularly with our server and thus creates data traffic. That is why we have to install a SIM-card. Similar to the operator of your smartphone, we need to charge you a small monthly fee to cover this service.
2. How much does it cost to use Locca?
As indiegogo supporter, you have all service fees included for the first 6 months. After these first 6 months of operation, we will charge you a monthly service fee of € 9,90 for the LoccaMini (Stuff Pack, Pet Pack, Bike Pack) and € 14,90 for the LoccaPhone (Car Pack, Buddy Pack). The costs for LoccaPhone are higher, since our service covers not only data but also voice traffic.
3. Where can I use the Locca devices?
During the first roll-out phase in 2013, we have special contracts with telecommunication operators of the following countries: Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Repulic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Mazedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA.
In 2014 we will add more countries to this list and will keep you posted regularly.
To use the Locca devices in other regions than Europe, USA and Canada, you can purchase our individual country packages (details will follow as update on indiegogo, on our website and social media sites).
4. Can I order more than one tracker?
Yes, off course! If you are a company, individual or retailer and would like to purchase a minimum of 5+ devices, Please contact us to receive a special volume discount.
5. When will you be shipping the devices?
We are still right in the middle of the testing phase and will soon be ready for mass production. We will ship the devices in February 2014.
6. How much are the shipping costs?
Shipping to Germany, Austria and Switzerland is free. Please add €15 to the package price if you don’t live in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland.
When purchasing a Perk Tee or a Surprise package you don’t have to add any shipping costs!
7. I don’t have a smartphone – can I still use Locca?
Yes! All features available in the Locca app are also available in the members area of our website. So Locca works perfectly on your laptop or desktop
8. Can I use my own SIM-card?
No. When you get your Locca delivered, there is already a SIM card installed in the device. This special SIM card is necessary to offer you the worldwide connection.
9. Does Locca work without mobile reception?
What works: Locca devices use 5 different locating technologies, therefore they can determine their exact position event without mobile reception (GSM)
What does not work: The locators need mobile reception to send the position data to the Locca server, i.e. without mobile reception you will not be able to see the locators’ position immediately. The position data will be saved on the device and will be transmitted to the server as soon as there is reception.
