As long as you're connected to the internet, there are two ways you can use Findster Kids to track your child remotely, even farther than the 1-mile (1.6 kilometers) range.
Let's imagine you're at work, but would like to track your child who's at school. Simply choose one of the two options below.
Follow these steps:
- Ask someone who's near the school to track your Child. This person should either have their own Findster Kids kit or be using your modules, paired with their own account. Please note that, in the latter case, you'd need to reset the modules to factory defaults so they can be paired again - if you do this, their configurations will be cleaned so your child's data will be lost. Because of this, you'd need to reset them and pair them with your own account later on.
- From the other person's account, they'll need to use the Share feature to share your child's location with your own account. Please note that, in order to use this feature, the person who's sharing and the person with whom the Child is being shared both need to be connected to the internet.
- You can now track your child's location remotely, as long as the other person is locally monitoring your child!
Remote monitoring trick
This setup not ideal, but rather a makeshift solution. Also, please note that you'll need two smartphones (let's call them A and B) to perform this.
Follow these steps:
- Setup the following:
- Smartphone A should be logged in to your Findster account and connected to the internet, with someone that lives near the school.
- The Guardian module should be next to smartphone A.
- Your child should be carrying their Child module.
- While you're at home, login with the same Findster account on smartphone B. You'll also need to keep smartphone B connected to the internet.
- Smartphone A will be tracking your child's location and sending that information to our servers.
- Smartphone B will also be accessing that data through our servers, so you'll be able to keep up with your child remotely!
