AT&T today announced it will offer the Amber Alert GPS, a communication and location device that keeps parents in touch with their children. AT&T is the exclusive network provider for the Amber Alert GPS device and will also provide distribution and billing services.
The Amber Alert GPS device is a smart locator connected to AT&T’s 3G network, allowing parents to communicate with their children. Weighing just 1.5 ounces, children can easily carry it in a pocket or backpack, in addition to a variety of other attachment options. The device has two-way voice calling and several features that give parents and caregivers peace of mind:
- Speed Alerts – Notify users when their child is in a vehicle exceeding a predetermined speed threshold.
- Breadcrumbing – Automatically send alerts of a child’s location based on a preset schedule.
- Zone Alerts – Parents create “Zones” around their home, neighborhood, school, soccer field, etc., and receive an email alert whenever their child enters or exits a Zone.
- SOS Button – Children can alert their parents if they need help, and the parents can see where their child is.
Parents can control the device remotely through a mobile app or computer. It is easy to use, set alerts, and receive the information you need most.
