Demand Skyrocketing For People Tracking Devices
22 September 2011
Global Positioning System (GPS) devices for tracking people, called personal trackers and produced by vehicle tracking and security system manufacturer Arvento Mobile Systems, are in high demand in various areas around Turkey.
The device has been well received by parents who are concerned about the safety of their children. With incidents of kidnappings, child molestation and human organ trafficking on the rise, parents are worried about their children’s whereabouts, prompting them to seek security measures for their children.
Arvento, GPS vehicle tracking and security devices producer has come up with the personal tracker, a device that helps parents follow their children‘s movements. These devices have been in high demand among parents recently, especially with the start of the new school year. The idea comes from previous tracking devices for pets and cars, which have been very successful. The device is smaller than a mobile phone and it can be put in a child’s pocket or school bag.
The device, which tracks people via satellite, has a button that sends an instant emergency warning message to selected phone numbers, making it attractive to parents.
