Amber Alert GPS: Child Tracking Device With AT&T

AT&T* today announced an agreement with Amber Alert GPS to provide wireless connectivity for the Amber Alert GPS V3, a child tracking device that keeps parents notified of the current location of their children.

The V3 offers parents the ability to create "Zones" around their home, neighborhood, school, soccer field, etc., and receive an email or text alert whenever their child enters or exits a Zone. The V3 integrates its tracking with the National Sex Offender database, alerting parents when their child is within 500 feet of a registered sex offender's home. The device has an SOS button children can activate to alert their parents if they need help and the parents can see exactly where their child is. Other features of the Amber Alert V3 include speed alerts, "bread-crumbing," which shows where users have been at specified intervals during the day, and one-way voice monitoring.

The V3 device can be controlled through a computer or wireless phone and is integrated with a secure online portal that was created with parents in mind. It is easy to use, set alerts, and receive the information you need most. Amber Alert GPS tracking technology is now available on smartphones.

"Every parent wants to know their child is safe," said Glenn Lurie, president of emerging devices, AT&T. "Embedding wireless connectivity into this tracking device equips parents with the ability to monitor and track the location of their children. This is innovation at its best – providing a solution and peace of mind."

"At Amber Alert GPS, our priority is child safety and security. We strive to provide busy parents with the tools they need to keep track of their family," says Carol Colombo, CEO of Amber Alert GPS. "Kids should have the freedom to be kids, to run and play and ride their bike to their friend's house. The V3 device is designed to give parents the confidence to send their children into the world, knowing they have taken the right steps to keep them safe."

The V3 is now available for preorder. For more information, visit:
