What is TrackieX and who is it for?

TrackieX is a simple to use GPS tracker and mobile app designed to help parents keep track of their children.

By attaching our GPS device to your child’s bag, pouch, or belt loop, you can check your child’s location and know they’re safe wherever they are.

While TrackieX cannot replace the in-person security you provide as a parent, it can be there for you and your children when you’re physically apart.


How does TrackieX work?

TrackieX uses the combination of a GPS tracker and mobile application to allow you to know your child’s location wherever they go.

The highly-accurate GPS tracker sends location data directly and securely to the connected mobile app (which can be installed on multiple phones so both parents and trusted friends and family can check on your child).

Within the app, you can configure Geofences, Setup Trackers and more to get alerts on your child’s whereabouts and get the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’re safe.


How does TrackieX track my child’s location and how accurate is it?

By default, the mobile app shows your child’s location using GPS technology included in every TrackieX tracker. It’s accuracy ranges between 5 and 15m depending on signal strength.

When GPS location data is not available – for example in some indoor spaces, parking garages, etc, TrackieX uses the included SIM card to connect to GSM networks and determine your child’s location. These networks are more accurate in urban areas, though in general GSM tracking is less accurate than GPS (up to a few hundred meters).


How often is my child’s location updated in the app?

You can determine how often the TrackieX app connects to your child’s tracker using the app’s “connection interval” settings.

With this setting, you can choose how frequently you’d like the TrackieX tracker to send location data to the mobile app – for example, every 2 minutes.

Then, you can also choose between “Passive” and “Active” modes.

In Passive mode, the tracking device goes into a low power “sleep” state until it detects motion. When your child moves, the device then sends location data to the mobile app if enough time has elapsed based on the connection interval you’ve set.

For example: you set a connection interval of 2 minutes and the TrackieX sends location data when your child arrives at school at 8:00. If your child sits down at their desk and doesn’t move again until 9:00, TrackieX will send you that location data at 9:00 and not before (while your child wasn’t moving).

In Active mode, the mobile tracker sends location data continuously based on your connection interval settings.

For example: when your child arrives at school at 8:00, again at 8:02, again at 8:04, etc. (assuming a 2-minute connection interval).

Active mode provides much more up-to-date location data, however this mode uses a lot more battery power than Passive mode.


Can anyone track my children with TrackieX?

No!

When the TrackieX mobile tracker is first connected to our mobile app, it makes that smartphone user the Admin.

This Admin user can then share that tracker with other users, such as other parents and caretakers.

These “shared” users cannot share the tracker with other users or update important settings like connection interval, SOS numbers, or Voice Monitoring numbers.

This way, your child’s location can only be seen and monitored by people you trust.


How is the TrackieX tracker charged and how long does charging take?

The TrackieX mobile tracker uses a micro USB connection and cable to charge from a computer USB port or wall plug. Our Kids Plus tracker includes magnetic pins as well for wireless charging.

Charging a tracker from zero battery typically takes around 3 hours.

During the charging process, a red light will turn on to indicate the tracker is charging; this light will go off when the battery is full.

What is Passive Mode?

With Passive mode or power saving mode, the device will go to sleep whenever the device doesn’t detect any motion for 5minutes. It will come back online only when the tracker is moved. All the settings made will pause and features such as voice monitoring and even certain battery alerts will be disabled when the device is in sleep. This mode is ideal for tracking kids and will save battery life tremendously.
You can wake up the device remotely by sending a SMS as “hi” to the device’s mobile number whenever it’s in sleep.

With SOS alerts, whoever has the access to your tracking device can receive notifications to your app just by hitting the SOS button. You can set up to 2 SOS numbers for each device. Only the admin ( the user admin who added the device to the app) can configure SOS numbers. TrackieX will call the first SOS number first, and then the second if the first SOS number failed.

Note: With an SOS call you can only hear the sounds very close to the tracking device.


What is TrackieX voice monitoring?
