PS Tracking has forever changed how we view our planet. Using Global Positioning Satellites, we can now get directions without having to stop and ask a stranger for help, create and navigate detailed maps of the globe, and track the movement of people and property. For parents that need real-time knowledge of their kids’ whereabouts, a large selection of reliable GPS tracking tools is now available to help keep their children safe. Experienced parents know that children tend to wander.
In an instant, a quick-footed toddler is soon out of reach. In crowded or hectic environments, the potential danger of a lost child is a constant source of parental anxiety. Together with strong parental supervision, child locators are a great choice for parents to keep track of their kids. As children move into their teen years, various GPS tracking systems allow parents to monitor their teen drivers’ whereabouts remotely.
There are various kinds of child locators. Simple audio alert systems use a receiver that the child wears. When the parent pushes a button on the handheld remote, the child’s receiver triggers a loud beeping sound to help identify the child’s location. For longer ranges, up to 600 feet, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) devices alert parents to wandering children and help find them with the assistance of a handheld unit. Real-time GPS tracking systems provide the greatest range of supervision. Parents can log onto the Internet and see where their child is at any moment and track their movements over time. If your child or teen is equipped with an iPhone or other smartphone, the software is available that will turn that device into a GPS Tracker, with a panic button for emergencies.
GPS tracking units have decreased greatly in size in the past few years. As a result, tracking and logging units are tiny and can easily be placed in a pocket, backpack, or vehicle. Depending on the unit, battery life varies from 24 hrs to 90 days. Although real-time units will involve a monthly fee for the cellular communication service, for the peace of mind it brings and the instant access to tracking information, many parents find it to be of great value.
Are the kids are really at the library, or is he or she going to a party with a friend? Was your child picked up from school on time today? Concerned about an estranged spouse or family member abducting your child? For parents who can’t personally supervise their children throughout the day or have to trust their kids’ whereabouts to others, GPS tracking can provide peace of mind that is simply priceless.
