The Footprint GPS Tracker is a compact GPS tracking and SOS device ideal for those living with dementia. It can be carried on the person as a keychain, around the neck, or in the pocket.
Who is it for?
This device is ideal for anyone from those with special needs to those with dementia, so that family members, or carers can rest assured that their loved one can be helped, in the event of an emergency.
How Does it Work?
When the wearer presses the SOS button situated on the front of the device:
An SOS text message is sent to all the registered contacts, containing information about the status of the device as well as a Google Maps link which shows the location of the wearer at the time of activation.
The tracker calls the 1st SOS contact. The Footprint’s two way speech allows the wearer to talk into the pendant and directly communicate with their contact.
If the first number doesn’t answer the phone then the device will continue to dial the 2nd contact and in turn the 3rd contact.
Additionally when you want to find out the tracker’s status you can simply text a command to it or give it a call and it will reply back to you with an update on its last location and the device status.
When you receive the Footprint it’s very easy to get setup by sending a few short text commands to configure the 3 nominated SOS contacts that will be contacted in the event of the tracker being activated.
Geo-fence alerts can also be set up with the Footprint, which define geographical areas so that each time a user goes in or out of that area, an alert will be sent.
If you are concerned that family members/designated contacts may not always be available then why not link to our 24/7 Monitoring Service for extra peace of mind and reassurance? Our Monitoring Service can be paired with the Footprint and offers you help, security and peace of mind in your home, or when you go out and about.
Have peace of mind in the knowledge that your Footprint can activate emergency calls to the fully trained and dedicated staff who are on hand 24 hours a day. The Monitoring service can respond to voice and text alert messages, along with establishing the GPS location should they need to summon assistance to a user’s location.
This service is recommended for those who are living without family / carers at hand and for those family and carers who want to feel safe in the knowledge that activations from the Footprint will not be delayed or unavailable, if they are out of network coverage, away on holiday or engaged on a call.
