Runner Mode

If the child runs away, the parent can switch the system to a special Runner Mode that provides additional tools for locating a lost child. Runner mode:

  • Increases the frequency of location updates to every 10 seconds (to closely monitor the child’s location)
  • Lets you  use Listen-In mode to hear the child’s surroundings
  • Enable “My Location Mode ” to display the guardian/parent location as well as the direction and distance to the lost child.

Indoor Tracking

GPS technology is severely limited indoors (think lost in a mall).  To help find someone that is lost indoors AngelSense lets you trigger a sound in the device to try and locate someone indoors. The ability to listen-in provides further help to locate a missing child when indoors.

AngelSense comes with listen-in capabilities for when you really need to know that your child is ok. If needed a parent can listen in to a child’s surroundings to make sure he is safe or when trying to find their child. The listen-in capabilities does not record any audio.
