One need not worry now if one’s toddler went out of the baby sitter while he was away from the room, or one’s eight year-old made unauthorized tours to the neighborhood or sweetshop after the school. Chill Mobile is abreast with one’s problem, and has come out to one’s aid with smart-phone controlled baby cameras and wristwatches; the tracking devices that enable one to spy on kids through his handset.
Among the numerous brand new wearable gadgets brought during this week’s Mobile World Congress trade fair organized in Barcelona, many companies were displaying rubber wristwatch devices brightly-colored for 4 to 11-year old children. These watches with kids enable parents to track them down via their Smartphone, and get alerts, if children veered out of the preset safety zone. A Spanish firm Telephonica advertized the launch of a wrist device, FiLIP, in Europe and Latin America, and the device has been in vogue in the U.S. since 2013. The watch also enables the child to talk to selected authorized adults who possess Smartphone. Carla Becker, a project manager at Telefonica, said while presenting the FiLIP in Barcelona that the idea behind these watches was to acquaint children with locating devices before they handled Smartphone.
For persons missing their children while at work or away, A Taiwanese Company, D-Link, has come with its product called EyeOn Baby which enables one to monitor the baby through a camera. A parent can even talk and play certain games with the child with some applications on the Smartphone. From one’s office or outside world, one can observe whether the kid is alright. A typical child tracker or a camera for child monitoring is priced around$150, and is highly useful.
