Track your Raspberry Pi

For free, using just WiFi networks around you.


It's a lot like magic.

Your device tells us which WiFi networks it can see, and we use a WiFi positioning service to locate it on a map. Okay, it's not all magic.

Register your device

You'll need an unique token to identify your device. We'll also send you email alerts if it moves outside your home or office.


Install the script

We've created a simple script that sends us data about nearby WiFi APs, each hour. Run this command in your Terminal or go here for manual instructions

Tested successfully on Raspberry Pi 2

wget && sudo bash ./ -install linux YOUR_TOKEN

Tested successfully on Mac OSX 10.9 ("Mavericks") through 10.11 (El Capitan)

wget && sudo bash ./ -install osx YOUR_TOKEN

Tested successfully on Ubuntu 14.04. It should work on any Linux flavour that supports `crontab`.

wget && sudo bash ./ -install linux YOUR_TOKEN

Support for Windows is coming soon.. If you'd like to contribute code, send in a pull request

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need?

You'll need a device - Pi, Macbook, etc - that supports Bash / Shell scripts and WiFi connectivity.

Is the script safe to use?

Yes. We've included the source code of the script here. It's still in BETA though so if your platform isn't listed, we'd recommend a manual installation.

Is there a fee?

None at all! This is a free service from the folks at Unwired Labs.

How does this work again?

Each hour, our script asks your device to search for nearby WiFi networks and tell our service about it. We then use a WiFi positioning service that knows the physical location of these networks to locate your device.

How accurate are these locations?

Typically between 10 and 30 meters. This varies depending on the number of WiFi networks the device is able to send & also the quality of information we have in that area.

Can I delete my data?

Your data is yours to delete. All you have to do is send us a message, we'll wipe it clean from our servers. :-)

How can I contribute.

Awesome! We could always use help porting the installation script to more platforms. Start here!

What's next on roadmap?

We're looking to push out email alerts if your device moves too much right away. If you have something else in mind, tell us!

How do I contact you?

Send us a message here and we'll get back to you within a day.
