The IonKids System was designed with both ergonomics and simplicity in mind. It consists of two components: a comfortable, unobtrusive bracelet for the child to wear and a convenient base unit a parent can easily carry and operate.
Base Unit: The parent or guardian uses this small, easy-to-use devise to monitor the location of the Wristag Wearer. The Base Unit, a handheld devise, allows parents to monitor up to four Wristags simultaneously.
Wristag: This specially designed, tamper-resistant and water-resistant bracelet is worn by the child. The Wristag is designed to be fun to wear and requires no interaction on the part of the child. IonKids Wristags adjust to fit snugly against your child's skin, and contain a strong locking mechanism that cannot be easily opened without a key, which comes with the Base Unit.
How They Work Together: Wristags transmit a signal to the Base Unit from up to 500 feet when outdoors and up to 300 feet indoors. Because it uses a point-to-point wireless communication system, the IonKids Wristag does not rely on cell towers or satellites to locate your child-so cloud cover or a building's roof will not prevent you from finding your loved ones.
Every few seconds, ionTechnology simultaneously changes the transmission frequency, Wristag ID and corresponding information in the Base Unit, significantly reducing the chances that a third party can scan or monitor a child's Wristag. In addition, each communication between an individual Wristag and its Base Unit will be transmitted on a different frequency, making it possible for multiple Wristags to be used in the same close environment without transmission interference.
The underside of the Wristag is equipped with sensors that detect the presence of the child's skin. If the sensors perceive an excessive gap between the Wristag and the child's skin, it immediately activates the Wristag alarm and sends a simultaneous "tamper" alarm to the Base Unit to warn parents of the possibility that the Wristag has been improperly removed.
Here’s what parents had to say about the IonKids system:
"I have had the ion-kids units in use now for a week and don't know how I managed without them! Not only do they work as described, but my son Charlie, who has autism, when his unit indicates that he has gone out of range, he comes back into range to keep his unit from beeping.
I never knew he would do that. My husband and I are finding that the kids are staying with us more because the old hide and seek game has ceased to be a game. We are not yelling and searching all over stores for them anymore. We use our FIND button. Game over. I just want to thank you for this product, we love it."
