Findster: Know Where Your Child or Pet Is at All Times

Findster is a location system that keeps your loved ones closer to you. It is an innovative GPS tracking system that helps you monitor your children and pets, and find them quickly if you ever lose sight of them.

Findster has five components: a parent/guardian module, a child/pet module, a smartphone app, a base station, and a portable charger. The two primary components are the parent/guardian module and the child/pet module. As you've probably already figured out, you wear the former and your child or pet wears the latter. These devices are wirelessly connected to each other. The smartphone app lets you follow your loved ones' activity and notifies you whenever they leave a security zone (defined by you).

The base station expands your connection area, protecting your family even when you're not with them. For instance, you can place base stations in your child's school and a trusted neighbor's home. Your child's module automatically connects with these base stations whenever she is in the vicinity, letting you know her whereabouts.

You can monitor multiple modules simultaneously, and several users can monitor one module. The Findster app displays your child or pet's location on a map, as well as your distance from them in space and time. Moreover, the child/pet module is equipped with a three-axis accelerometer that detects falls and tracks the daily activity of pets.

Unlike other tracking systems on the market, Findster does not have any monthly fees. You pay once and that's it. Thanks to Findster's innovative radio frequency communication system, modules have a communication range of 1 kilometer and do not have to rely on a cellular connection, thus eliminating the need for monthly fees.

Findster has been featured on TechCrunch, BuzzFeed, Geeky Gadgets, The Gadget Fellow, Exame Informatica, and more. It is currently available for pre-order on Indiegogo.
