Concerned parents are always interested in the latest technological tools that can help improve child safety or offer parents alternative ways to keep tabs on a baby. Every new parent knows the feeling of having to check on a baby all the time to make certain he or she is safe, but parents do not have that ability while at work. While at work, parents must try and focus on their work activities, hoping that the nanny, babysitter or family member taking care of the baby is being responsible. With the economy still crawling along, both mothers and fathers are being forced to work in order to support a household. However, just because both parents are away from the home working does not mean they cannot keep a digital on their baby. This is because real-time GPS tracking systems are offering parents a new and unique way to monitor their children.
Parents have used surveillance tools such as keystroke logger units to uncover what a teen is doing online, baby monitors to see if a toddler is sleeping or awake and GPS tracking systems to enhance baby safety. However, many parents have only just recently begun using GPS monitoring technology, once only used for fleet management applications, to help add an additional layer of security and protection to their baby.
Here is a scenario that is all to common with many families: Mom and dad are both working and have to hire a nanny to take care of the baby until the parents can get back from work, usually around 5:00p.m. The nanny states that she takes the baby for a walk in the stroller everyday around noon, but the parents really have no way to verify that the walk ever occurred, or what locations the nanny took the baby. By placing a real-time GPS tracking unit either inside the stroller or having the nanny keep the portable live tracker in their possession, both parents would then be able to have remote access to the location of their child throughout the work day. The parents could see where the baby and nanny are in the city by reviewing the GPS data that interfaces with a satellite image program, and mom and dad could feel an additional sense of closeness to the baby. Not to mention, the parents could use the GPS data if an emergency ever occurred.
Looking to take child care beyond the 21st century, many parents are now seeing the benefits that technology can have in improving child safety. With so many parents already utilizing home cameras and various baby monitors, it is easy for many tech-savvy parents to realize the special abilities and skills GPS tracking systems can offer. Why wonder where your baby is at and where he/she has been when personal tracking systems designed for child tracking can provide you the answer at your finger tips?
