Achieving Peace Of Mind With GPS Tracking13 Jan 2011
Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment. Do you have teenage driver(s) in your family? Do you worry every time they leave the house?
Lets not forget we were all teenagers once. Many of us remember times when we went to places that were restricted and did thing that werent supposed to be done. Danger was never in our thoughts, life seemed like an adventure, fun, exciting, so new.
Today, we know better because most of us have grown older and wiser. But we also know that our children would think of certain situations as being “fun” or “adventurous,” when they are actually quite dangerous.
Luckily, we can use technology to keep our children safer. The internet, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) satellites and wireless data networks have matured to a point where all three technologies combined work quite well for keeping real good track of almost anything that moves, its called GPS tracking.
These GPS tracking devices come in two basic forms, hardwired to a power source, like to a vehicles power system, or powered by a stand-alone battery. These GPS tracking devices are accurate to within a few feet of their location. They can report speed, heading, and location.
Most modern GPS tracking systems are Internet based. Now, all you need to do is open a webpage from an Internet enabled computer, or mobile phone application like those we have available for the Iphone & Droid to see where you child is
A typical vehicle GPS tracking system will allow you to watch your child on a satellite map like Google Maps or Microsoft Bing maps as they drive down the street. See how fast they are travelling, on our Live Trac system, you can watch them turn for turn. Know where they stop at and for exactly how long.
A typical portable GPS tracking system, like our PT-10 can be placed in your childs backpack. Watch on a satellite map as your child walks to school get notified via text message when they arrive and depart school.
