Spottix™ system is secured, and embedded a strong Data Rights Management system, which enables only the parents, or any of those approved by them in a dedicated process, to receive the requested information. Elderly people who suffer from Alzheimer and are being monitored by Spottix™, use a dedicated feature which alerts family members on leaving of the nearby surroundings and follows them and reports to family members at any given time as to their whereabouts. Spottix™ uses the Google database as part of an agreement with Google including changing the grid or satellite map up to a few meters accuracy. A Hand-held device at the size of a car remote control. Carried by the child. Passive, without the ability to switch on/off. Spottix™ is offered with/without panic button. A command and control call-centre system which controls and monitors the hand-held devices and is in constant contact using GPRS with all hand-held units and lists the hand-held whereabouts in the database every 10 minutes. A web enabled secured and dedicated system is available for users 24/7, whereby parents or any authorised user can access and receive information on the child's or elder's whereabouts over the last 10 hours., a featured mostly needed in cases of losing children. The Spottix-K (child tracking) system is activated via cellular handsets and allows the viewing (and monitoring) of a child's location via a parent's mobile phone using a "map-clip" whenever a parent requests the service using abbreviated dialing to locate the unit the child is carrying. A strong sophisticated information management system (Data Right Management) allows only the parent (or other authorized person) to receive information. In addition, the system enables parents to monitor the child's location at any time and to see the child's movement over the previous 10 hours - in increments of 8 minutes (or other time increments according to request). This option is designed in the event that the hand-held device does not respond, however the system records the location of the child every 8 minutes. If the device does not answer to the eighth minute - the system alerts parents via SMS. Check out the animations on the right hand side!
