IoT-Enabled child location tracking solutions use GPS and mobile data to allow parents or guardians to monitor and communicate with children remotely. Child monitoring solutions can be attached to a child, via their clothing or backpack, or can be worn around the wrist, resembling a smartwatch.
As the personal safety wearable market continues to grow, companies have begun to focus in on the most vulnerable population: children.
Child tracking solutions allow parents or guardians to instantly monitor the location of their children, in real-time or at regular intervals. In case of an emergency, these devices can also act as a way for kids to quickly seek help, even if they don’t have a phone.
Most child tracking solutions utilize GPS and/or WiFi to track children indoors and out. Wearable options allow for two-way calling and SMS to allow parents to communicate with children, listen in on their surroundings, or send alerts; as well as a panic button that automatically calls the child’s trusted contacts; and geofencing alerts that send SMS or email alerts to parents if a child enters or leaves a preset area.
