Parents use GPS tracking devices on their children – Stuff.co.nz

Hundreds of Kiwi parents are placing GPS tracking devices on their children for “peace of mind” while apart.

Great to see these are now available in New Zealand, I looked very closely at setting up a similar business a couple of years ago. There is a real need to be able to locate people of all ages based on health conditions and disabilities as well as at risk children.

RF devices often used for elderly people with dementia are extremely inefficient, but they are used because they are cheap. As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, the technology may be cheap, but search and rescue people aren’t.

Pretty much every day I see Police reports of elderly people going missing which is distressing for them and their families and very costly on people resources which could be focused in other areas.
