IonKids to track down little ones
Bringing kids to the local mall can be a time of fun and bonding, and yet the experience could be rather stressful as well when you try to complete the list of groceries while keeping tabs on two of your tiny terrors who love playing hide and seek between the aisles. Short of getting a dog leash or risk the embarrassment of admonishing your little ones in a public area, the IonKids system will be able to help you keep tabs on your children. This unique tracking system comprises of a Base Unit which looks like a PDA device and a Wristag that locks onto a child’s arm securely.
The Base Unit is extremely small and portable, making it easy for you to carry with you everywhere you go. It is capable of tracking up to a quartet of Wristag devices simultaneously. As for the Wristag, it comes across as a tamper-proof and water-resistant device that features a secure locking mechanism which can be opened only with a key supplied by the Base Unit. When outdoors, the Wristag is capable of transmitting a signal to the Base Unit up to 350 feet, while reception does not fare as well indoors with a maximum range of 200 feet.
The transmission frequency itself is also changed every few seconds to prevent predators from monitoring your child’s location. The Wristag itself is equipped with a sensor underneath that detects when it has been removed, immediately alarming you to take the appropriate action. For $199, you can actually buy some peace of mind with the IonKids tracking system.
