Your family is your life and protecting your children from harm’s way is a growing problem and now it is now possible with technology. Your child’s safety and whereabouts can now be monitored via your smartphone. Children can have the ability to alert you when they are under duress, in trouble or find themselves lost.
Children 2-10 years old, toddlers and even newborns traveling and under supervision of others can be monitored 24/7 in five minute intervals and located immediately and automatically via e-mail or text messaging. You set the schedule – minutes or hours – and receive regular alerts with the exact location of your child. An SOS button allows older children to summon for help which includes their location as well as automatic tracking alerts to entrusted individuals you choose to receive them.
This child tracking solution is dependent upon 2 technologies – GPS (Global Positioning System) and wireless communications or cell phone (GSM). Anywhere you can receive both a GPS signal and have cell phone reception, the solution will work.
The solution was developed by the father of a young daughter who became lost at an amusement park for several hours. After finding her and being an IT technologist, decided to develop a solution for preventing this from happening again. He funded Amber Alert GPS and engineered the Law Enforcement Alerting Portal (‘LEAP”) used by law enforcement in states to issue the actual Amber Alerts. The LEAP system is the fastest and most efficient alerting technology in the nation, and allows States to share Amber Alerts cross-borders. To date, law enforcement in the States using the LEAP system have a 100% recovery rate of all children for whom an Amber Alert was issued.
Protect your children.
