AngelSense does way more than just show your child's location on a map or alert you when your child leaves a predefined safe zone. This device learns your kid's routine—right down to their school bus route—and immediately lets you know if there's a deviation.
A recent AngelSense upgrade also introduced indoor location tracking, which uses Wi-Fi hotspots to figure out where your child is at school, in the store, in your apartment building, etc. It's the only kids GPS tracker on the market with this feature.
And if your kiddo likes to play hide-and-seek in the worst possible moments, you can activate a device alarm and follow the sound to find them.
But AngelSense's genius doesn't stop there. If your child has wandered off and you need to ask the police for help (such as if you're 20 minutes across town and need to make sure your wandering child is safe now), you can send a temporary tracking link to dispatch—or to anyone you know nearby.
AngelSense's battery lasts about 24 hours, which means you'll need to remember to charge it every night. The reason it lasts such a short time compared to other kids GPS trackers is that the AngelSense provides more frequent location updates and is constantly analyzing your kid's routine. We think that's a good trade-off for kids at risk of wandering.
AngelSense has two-way voice communication, a pretty standard feature for a kids’ GPS tracking device. But the automatic pickup feature makes it stand out.
Automatic pickup doesn’t require your child to answer for you to speak with them. You call, and they’ll hear you. There are a couple of downsides, though.
You get 60 voice minutes for calls every month, but you can buy more through the AngelSense app as needed. And depending on how your child wears their AngelSense tracker, audio might sound muffled under clothing.
It’s also a unique GPS tracker because of its listen-in feature. This one-way voice button lets you listen in on your child’s environment. If you’re concerned about wandering or bullying, you can check in to make sure your kids are okay.
AngelSense not only counts your child's steps, but also monitors their activity level at different locations throughout the day. This can give you important insight about how much exercise your child got during the school day.
The latest version of AngelSense also includes automatic fall detection, which alerts you if your loved one falls and doesn't move—an indication they need immediate help. This feature is especially helpful for aging adults who spend time alone but are at risk of falling. Learn more in our fall detection guide.
