HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SecuraTrac, a dynamic provider of personal location services focused on protecting children and the elderly, announced that their SecuraTrac web portal has been certified to work on the Droid Internet browser. By logging into their SecuraTrac account on their Droid phones, parents and caretakers are able to access real-time location information for their SecuraPAL (Personal Automated Locator) device.
The SecuraPAL is a two-ounce device that can be used to locate children, senior citizens, pets, vehicles, luggage and other valuables. Harnessing the power of GPS satellites, SecuraPAL can report its location to users automatically at specified intervals or on-demand.
A key feature of the SecuraPAL is its ability to report when it leaves pre-defined boundaries users set called SecuraFences. These virtual boundaries can be created on the user’s secure web portal by simply clicking on a map and dragging a box to an area to create a fence. When the SecuraPAL device enters or exits a SecuraFence area, the user is proactively sent a text message and email alert notifying him or her that the SecuraPAL is on the move, along with the nearest address and a link with directions to that location.
The SecuraPAL device is also equipped with an SOS button. If an emergency situation arises and the person carrying the device needs assistance, he or she can hold down the SOS button for two seconds to send an SOS text message to the SecuraTrac account holder with turn-by-turn directions to his or her location. Additional parents or caretakers can be setup in seconds to receive SOS and other location alerts.
SecuraPALs are available for purchase as well as daily rentals. Renting is a great option for family vacations in and out of the country as well as trips to theme parks and other crowded places.
