WHAT ARE HELIUM TABS?

Helium Tabs are a simple and affordable device to keep track of the things that matter the most to you. It uses an entirely new wireless network built specifically for this purpose – The People’s Network. Thanks to Helium Hotspots, The People's Network is now live in over 1000+ cities and growing.

Helium Tabs are subscription-free. For life. There are no recurring costs, and no cell phone is needed nearby to locate them. Simply make sure you have coverage, and you're good to go! 

STARTS SHIPPING SUMMER 2020

Helium Tabs are exclusively available to Hotspot owners in North America and will start shipping this summer. Learn more on our website.

Hotspot Details

  • Efficient miner for a new cryptocurrency, Helium (HNT).
  • Complete set up in minutes using a smartphone.
  • LongFi technology maximizes range and battery life without Wi-Fi, cellular or Bluetooth.
  • Low Power – only uses about the same amount as an LED light bulb (5W).
  • Easily manage Hotspots and tokens from the mobile app.

 

LongFi Technology

Helium LongFi is a technology architecture that combines a leading wireless technology, LoRaWAN, and the Helium Blockchain. LongFi is optimized for miles of range, and long battery life for IoT devices.

 

Proof-of-Coverage

Hotspots earn Helium when devices connect and for validating wireless coverage delivered by peers. Using a system called Proof-of-Coverage, Hotspots earn more Helium when they are in range of other Hotspots, but need to be at least 300 meters apart.

Range depends on the environment, for rural areas up to 16 kilometers or more, but for more dense areas up to 1.5 kilometers. Single Hotspots earn less as they can only issue Challenges over the internet, and can’t participate in Proof-of-Coverage.

 

Cover your city in kilometers of wireless coverage

DELIVER MANY SQUARE KILOMETERS COVERAGE FROM A SINGLE HOTSPOT

Based on initial testing, only about 50 to 100 Hotspots are needed to provide complete coverage for an entire city.

 

Connect Anything

CREATE A NEW GLOBAL NETWORK FOR BILLIONS OF DEVICES

Any IoT device can become Helium-enabled using readily available off-the-shelf hardware components, software, and a reference design that is open source for anyone to improve on.
