What can you do to solve this issue? Geofencing! Continue reading to learn more about what geofencing is, as well as how you may be able to use it in order to keep your kids safe.
Geofencing, to describe it as succinctly as possible, is a matter of creating a virtual ‘fence’ or boundary with the use of GPS technology. It’s useful for parents who want to create set locations that they believe their children should stayor not enter(it works both ways.) This may sound impossible, but with the capabilities of smartphones plus other advancements in technology, you can now set it up so that you are alerted whenever your child goes or leaves certain areas. Here are some of the key features and benefits of geofencing...
How Geofencing works really depend on what tool you end up using. There’s a variety of them out there, and not all of them will work the same way. Some are meant merely just to provide you a way of tracking your child based on their GPS location, while others are a little more customizable. Which, as we mentioned, will allow you to set up boundaries with automatic alerts that will notify you when your child leaves or enters certain boundaries.
When it comes to the customizable tools, setting up geofencing is just a matter of creating these virtual ‘fences’ around certain areas that you believe are danger spots or vice versa.
Some tools are also capable of allowing to differentiate between both — giving you different notifications based on whether your child entered a restricted area or left a safe area without permission.
A good example of a geofencing tool that you can use in the monitoring sense, is Aispyer. This app is meant to be installed on your child’s Android device and used to track whether they’ve gone throughout the day.

A large part of the act of actual geofencing is creating boundaries. Don’t burden yours by overdoing it! Create only boundaries that you feel are absolutely vital to your child’s safety. Or else, you’ll be receiving alerts left and right!
Most people assume that geofencing is done in order to prevent children from going to inappropriate locations. And, certainly, that is one aspect of it. But you can also use geofencing to create safe spaces. These are areas where you believe your child is the safest (and should they step out of it, you can set up an alert that will notify you of their abrupt absence.)
Not all geofencing tools will be able to give you the amount of customizability that you need. So, before considering a tool for you to use… make sure that you look at all the details and functions provided!
If you have a reason to believe that your child is in potential danger. You may want to consider a geofencing tool that is more permanent. Tracking their mobile device is fine in theory. As it is unlikely that your child will leave it behind carelessly. However, phones are also one of the first things people take from you if they have bad intentions. And it’s unlikely to do any good if that is the case. So, ask around to see if there is any way of making your tracking more permanent!
There are many dangers that pose a great risk for children. But fortunately, we are now able to better equip ourselves with the tools that can help potentially keep them safe. Consider this as you decide whether you are going to try a geofencing tool or a location tracking app like Aispyer. It isn’t necessarily going to be necessary for everyone, but it is certainly an option to keep in mind.
