Kii delivers Snowfox portable tracker for children

kiiChildren are very precious – regardless of where they are, their exuberant spirit and natural optimism is always a joy to watch and be with. Having said that, their sense of curiosity also brings them on various adventures, and this might at times, end up in them getting lost around a particular area or place. This would indirectly cause a sense of distress to the parents as well, so why not live out the mantra that prevention is indeed better than cure? While there are devices like the LG KiZON for the little ones, here is yet another child tracker that works great if you would like to keep up with the times – the Snowfox from Kii.

Kii is one of the leading Internet of Things (IoT) cloud platform provider, working alongside Haltian, a high technology electronics design and production house, to deliver their latest portable tracker and communication device that is known as Snowfox. This is a next generation tracking solution that comprises of a durable and portable device with voice calling, GPS tracking and an app, with all of those functions backed by Kii’s IoT platform. This particular collaboration between Kii and Haltian ensures that there is a viable solution that will address the highest priority for any parent – their child’s safety.

The Snowfox is rather special as it comes with an embedded SIM card and is ready to work right out of the box, and it will also carry some key differentiators which would help it to stand apart from the rest of the crowd, including powerful two-way calling feature, a simple button that can double up as a panic button or a simple check-in button, accurate GPS tracking, rugged all-weatherproof design that is impact-resistant, multiple geo-fencing zone capabilities that enables a parent to see the tracker’s most recent location, the ability to create no-go zones and receive notifications when a tracker reaches or leaves a specific place.

With a simple design that can be used by children and parents alike with little help, expect to see more of the Snowfox at MWC next week – with a commercial release tipped for a Q2 2016 rollout. There is no word on pricing as at press time.
