Losing your children whilst out and about is always a worry for parents and there are a wide variety of solutions that are already available and coming to market to help you keep track of your kids, keeping them safe from becoming lost.
One new such child tracking system is called Invisible Reins and consists of a small device that links your child to your smartphone using a companion application and Bluetooth. Watch the video below to learn more.
Invisible Reins has been created by Natalie and James Steward and is currently looking to raise £35,000 in funding. The child tracking system system allows parents or guardians to set a “safe zone” from 1 to 30 meters and the connection is made via Bluetooth. Its developers explain more “
“Invisible Reins is ideal for toddlers rather than older children. You fix the tag to your child’s coat/shoe/bag/shirt and then you set the range on the app that you are happy for them to wander within before you are alerted.
Invisible Reins is a Bluetooth innovation that links your child to your phone (IOS and Android) via an app to prevent them getting lost. Unlike a tracking device, Invisible Reins is designed to alert you should your child leave the “safe zone” you have set, rather than tracking their every step. This is a product to prevent your child getting lost rather than a product that attempts to locate them once they are already lost or in danger.
A simple trip to the shops can be a daunting task for many parents and especially for those with more that one child. Toddlers can be easily distracted and like to explore. If a parent is busy tending to another child, paying for something in a shop or answering a phone call then they might not notice that their child has wandered a bit too far.
If your child gets lost they can also alert you by pressing the button on their tag. Unlike GPS, Bluetooth is low cost and does not require a sim card. You can pinpoint your child’s whereabouts in the app to within a few metres.”
