Kids and parents

Easy one button check-in

Kids can easily “check-in” with just one press of a button, replacing the need of a phone call or a text message. Parents see the location on a map view in their mobile devices or online in BiiSafe Circle cloud service.

Nobody, and especially teenagers, don't like to be tracked all the time. BiiSafe Buddy gives the users the control when they want to share their location to others since it's not a tracking device. Parents can agree with their kids that they should check-in regularly, for instance every 2 hours.

Kids can also send alerts to parents if they need help.

What you'll need:

  • BiiSafe Buddy accessory for your child
  • Free BiiSafe Buddy app in your and your child's phone
  • One free BiiSafe Circle account for your family (create one inside the app)

Receive an alarm if your child wanders away

Let your child carry the Buddy paired with your phone. If your child goes out of the Bluetooth range (max. 30-50 meters / 100-160 feet) your phone and the Buddy on your child will make an alert.
