Automation through networking 

Virtual and real-world are both real. 



The refrigerator talks to our clock, the mobile phone is networked to our car, our fitness tracker makes the alarm clock ring, sensors in the food bowl trigger an automatic order for the pet from Napfy. 


The IoT is a powerhouse

For the Swiss company STS Tracking AG, we co-developed digital process applications for a GPS tracker. The tracker, for which we did the entire communication design, positioning and branding, was first to be produced for dogs and cats and in a second step further developed for valuables and, after sufficient experience, also for tracking people suffering from dementia.

Does this ring a bell?

The name "Belpet", from English bell and pet, was part of our overall concept for marketing the tracker. The analog bell is the oldest precursor of the digital "bell". The name Belpet is concise in content and phonetically catchy. The tracker is attached to the collar with a patented lock similar to a bell, which opens automatically if the pull is too great.

The market entry and concept were adapted to the unlimited possibilities of IoT applications. Our concept for the possibilities of data mining and the automation of ordering processes, for example via Amazon, prompted STS AG to integrate additional sensor technology into the tracker systems.

The design of the GPS tracker, based on our briefing, product branding, brand architecture

developed by the renowned design studio EMAMI, received the Red Dot Design Award 2019.


The conceptual idea for the logo, which represents a stylized bell, gives the product high quality and lasting recognizability.
