NanoThings Selects the Helium Network for Real-Time Asset Tracking

The Helium Network will power track-and-trace functionality for NanoThings’ Real Time™ protocol


NanoThings, the low-cost, long-range sensor company, announced today that it has chosen the Helium Network, the world’s fastest-growing wireless network, to transmit sensor data for its real-time tracking application. Building on NanoThings’ existing capabilities of closed-loop temperature monitoring and location tracking, the Helium Network helps deliver up-to-the-minute information for in-transit and stationary use cases like trucking finished goods for sale or monitoring inventory levels in a warehouse.

Unlike NFC or RFID tags, NanoTags enable tracking features such as arrival and departure tracking, real-time yard monitoring, real-time in-facility tracking, first and last-mile location tracking, and multi-leg tracking. Featuring a thin and flexible profile, NanoTags are manufactured with a hybrid printing process that vastly increases the scalability of traditional electronics manufacturing. The form factor is reduced to the size of a credit card by printing the antenna and circuitry on a flexible yet highly resilient layer of adhesive. By economizing the production costs, NanoTags are offered at a competitive price point, starting at $12 per sensor. NanoTags are suitable for cold chain monitoring, inventory monitoring, asset tracking, parcel tracking, smart packaging, and facility monitoring. As the lowest-cost, most-versatile location tracker and temperature sensor on the market, NanoTags leverage the low-power, wide-range networking protocol of the Helium Network.

After just six months in the market with NanoThings Real Time™, NanoThings has attracted customers from small businesses to the Fortune 100. The cost-effectiveness of the Helium Network unlocks exceptional value and helps NanoThings further differentiate its product by offering more continuous data streams, especially ideal for in-transit utilization.

“NanoTags product specifications are a perfect match for how the Helium decentralized wireless network was engineered,” said Scott Sigel, Chief Operating Officer of the Helium Foundation. “Bringing together these two technologies creates new possibilities for all types of commercial users. The breakthroughs NanoThings has made in sensor manufacturing have ushered in a new sense of possibility. We’re delighted that the Helium Network can support this type of innovation.”

Tim Williams, Co-Founder and Head of Ecosystem Development at NanoThings, added, “Our team is extraordinarily bullish about the Helium Network. This partnership helps position our sensor protocol as a plug-and-play solution. It used to be that adopting a solution like ours required significant technical expertise. Today, no coding is necessary. The data we offer is simple, despite our NanoTags level of sophistication. I’m confident that this technological leap forward will help us drive increased adoption.”

NanoThings has deployed hundreds of thousands of devices across North America, Europe, and Asia. To order a NanoTag™, visit To learn more about the Helium Network, visit
