LOK8U – CES 2009

Lok8u_logoMoms and Dads keep track of the kids by having them simply wear a watch. This new technology will allow you to track where your kids are with a tamper-proof device that if removed, will alert you that there is a issue. Lok8U uses GPS and Satellites to track where your kids are at all times and GSM technology to alert you via text/email.

This is the world’s first GPS locator device that has been specifically designed with children in mind. It will tell you exactly where your child is, whenever you feel you need to know – at home or even abroad. All you need is a mobile phone or a computer to find their precise location. And unlike similar locator products, num8 has been cleverly concealed in a child’s digital watch that is securely fastened to your child and cannot be removed or deactivated without your knowledge. Another great feature of num8 is the ability to set up a virtual fence as a ‘safe zone’. If your child steps outside this zone you’ll know it right away. It means total security, absolute peace of mind, all day long. num8 uses the same Pinpoint precise GPS technology used in SatNav systems and is accurate to within 3 meters. Just text WRU from your phone and within 30 seconds you get information back including street name, building number, zip code and linking to the Google maps. The battery standby times is 100 hours and 2 to 3 days of battery life in normal use of 8 to 10 interactions with the device a day. (If you are checking your kid every 2 or 3 minutes you will get 8 to 9 hours of the battery life.) The information is available on the website www.lok8u.com. The price point is $200 USD with a monthly subscription of $10 USD.
