Company Summary

Amber Alert GPS is a child safety GPS company. We leverage the latest technologies to help keep families safe. We do that by utilizing a child-tracking device that attaches to a child's clothing or backpack. The device reports 24/7 to our easy-to-use web-based portal, and parents can see where their kids are, and receive email or text alerts, from a computer or a smartphone. Our target market includes kids in the 2-10 age bracket.
