Keeping Track of Kids

Keeping Track of Kids

I love Halloween.  It's always a fun time in our neighborhood.  We have a little pizza party on our cul de sac then hit the pavement to load up on sugary treats.

As my son gets older - I often wonder when I'm going to let him go 'trick or treating' with the neighborhood kids alone.  Eh... not sure yet.  Afterall he is only 4.  I mean, maybe if they have an escort but I feel like I need some piece of mind.

Recently I was sent a product for review that really got me thinking.  I never let me kid play in the neighborhood or even in our circle alone.  I have to be outside with him or my  husband at all times.  We just live by those rules.  

The product is called eZoom and its through Securus.  

What's great about this product is that I feel like 'Momgyver'!  (Remember McGyver show?  Yeah.)

It's a small tracking device that you can throw in your kids pocket or even their loot bag.  And you can clearly see exactly where they are and where they are going!  

Not that I think I need to be all sneaky on him... but there is a definite piece of mind about knowing where they are!  Kind of like the 'Find my iPhone app'.  I never use the app-but the piece of mind is golden! lol 

And it works!  GREAT!

You can track online and on your mobile.  It's useful for so many things.  Not just the kids. lol.  Cars, bikes... you name it!  And if you use it for something that requires insurance, there is a good chance that you can get a discount on your insurance for doing so!

There is an alert button on the device that can alert you immediately and notifies you of their location.  You can also create 'safe spots' like their school or park and if your child leaves that spot you get alerts for it!  Talk about TOTAL peace of mind!!

PERSONAL OPINION:  Now, i would definitely buy the device, but the service charges are about $100 past my budget per year.
