Having a child is a huge responsibility. Ask any parent that question and you will receive a vigorous nod of the head. Children are prone to wander. They are curious beings and often throw caution to the winds, wandering off in unknown directions.
Imagine losing a child at a crowded fair, all because they were attracted by the movement of a floating balloon and you were looking in the opposite direction. Or imagine being unable to locate your toddler in your own home! Toddlers are an extremely restless lot and are prone to moving around.
They my get themselves locked in a cabinet upstairs, or crawl into an unfamiliar area all without your knowledge.
These may sound like implausible scenarios, but sadly they are more common than you think.
This is where Personal Alarm GPS trackers come in. They are easy, accurate and reliable ways to keep track of your child or even the elderly. These are great tools for caregivers as well, since the elderly, are prone to getting lost or being unable to find their way back home.
There are two kinds of personal trackers available in the market. Ones that uses cellular signals, they operate using a mobile phone carrier and another which uses radio signals. A major disadvantage of the former is that that they work only in areas where there is 3G mobile phone coverage and in addition, have an ongoing service charge for the tracker. Radio wave trackers do not have a service charge but have a longer range and the signal transmission is limited to a handheld receiver. Though they have their pros and cons, these devices are almost indispensable in today’s fast paced world.
Personal Alarms Systems and security GPS trackers have become quite the rage lately, due to their numerous advantages.
As you grow up and have children, you don't realise how time flies. We always imagine our own parents as strong, healthy and independent. Then one day you ask yourself ' How did we all get so old?'.
Somehow I have entered my 40's and my parents are in their mid 70's. And suddenly we start to worry about them, their health, safety and being alone and vulnerable.
