GPS monitoring devices have evolved to the point where simply tracking a person, vehicle or asset is almost one of the secondary features of tracker devices. This is because tracking systems can now provide aggressive driving reports, alert a user if a automobile leaves or enters a particular facility, send notification if a person falls and can even send out routing data and information. However, one of the features offered on some personal tracking systems such as the Senior GPS Bracelet is something described as a panic button, and this particular feature is helping enhance safety.
Before Tracking System Direct ships out any personal locator the company must first program the device specifically for the user. The programming requires the company to get three (3) pieces of information from the customer:
1. An email address where alert notifications came be sent.
2. A cellular number where text alert notifications can be sent.
3. A contact number to be programmed as the panic button (this can be the same number as the cell phone alert if needed).
Basically, the text and email alerts are utilized to give the user instant access to when a geo-fence has been breeched or driver has exceeded a safe speed. The panic button, on the other hand, is used by the person wearing the GPS monitoring bracelet to call out for assistance. Once the user presses the panic button, the GPS monitoring bracelet will then place a phone call to the contact number programmed. This feature is ideal for seniors who may find themselves in a medical emergency, or special needs children that may have wandered off and become lost.
Senior tracking bracelets provide a two-way voice communication feature that will allow a elderly person, child or other user to communicate with family, friends or emergency personnel with a simple push of the panic button. For users who are wearing the GPS bracelet because they may be a senior with memory problems or child with special needs, family members can always contact the GPS bracelet and begin speaking directly to the person wearing the device. This is because the GPS bracelet has the ability to act as a speakerphone, something that can be critical in a emergency situation.
People interested in real-time tracking bracelets should be aware that any device that transmits data does require a monthly service fee. Monthly service obligations for the senior GPS bracelet are $34.95 per month if the user wants the option of two-way voice communication.
