Top 10 Tips for Using AngelSense This Summer

July 8, 2019


Changes or lack of routine during the summer months set the stage for triggers to elopement. Family visiting, vacations and outings to crowded places make summertime nerve-racking for a lot of parents.

With AngelSense, you can enjoy your favorite summertime activities without the stress.

You and your child deserve summer freedom!

Here are 10 tips for using AngelSense this summer:

1. Use AngelSense daily: even if there is no school. We see an increase in wandering incidents with our users during the summer months.

Tip: Keep your device charged! You never know when you might have an unexpected outing. Use this reward chart to build a routine to wear AngelSense daily.

2. Involve your camp or extended school year staff:

Tip: Edit your school schedule to match your new summer schedule, remove School Guardians that are no longer active.

3. “Share Live Location” for temp access: Give temporary and limited access to the current location of your AngelSense device to summer caregivers. It does not require them to download the app and log on as a Guardian, School Guardian or to be added as a First Responder.

Tip: You can remotely share with camp staff in case of elopement, without having to add them as School Guardians. They can forward the live link as necessary to others.

4. Test the First Responder Feature: Go over who you have as a First Responder and do a “test run” with them. When you turn on “Runner Mode” one of the options is “Test Mode”.

Tip: Print the NEW Emergency Search Tools & Safety Prep Guide to have in case of emergency.

5. “My Location” for Summer Outings:  See your location relative to your Angel’s location (device).

Tip: If you have GPS2, you can also see the wifi hotspots for more help to locate them – most amusement parks and malls name their hotspots something recognizable.

6. Practice with Voice Features: Use the voice features to help your child transition smoothly between places and new activities during the day.

Tip: Save the device phone number as a contact in your phone so you don’t have to open the app each time you want to use the voice features.

7. Test “Alarm” Feature:  Test out the “Alarm” feature with your child without causing added stress if they are in a difficult situation.

Tip: Let camp staff know you can remotely activate the alarm if your child is hiding indoors. For GPS2, choose the best sound/vibration option with your child so they recognize it.

8. Power Off for Air Travel: If you have plans to travel this summer, you can use the “Remote Shutdown” when you get to airport security and need to turn the device off.

Tip: Fully charge your device then use “Remote Shutdown” before travelling so that it has a full charge when you reach your destination.

9. Use “Location Playback”:  View the key zones that your child spends time in, giving you another window into their daily routine. Monitor outdoor activity at summer camp or view location history at a large playground or waterpark.

Tip: In case of elopement from a named location, you can see the exact spot where they exited the set geofence, giving you an indication of a vulnerable spot.

10. ETA Feature: Never stand in the heat waiting for your child to arrive home. Stop worrying about your child’s bus arriving earlier than usual and not being there in time. With AngelSense ETA, you’ll know exactly when to expect them.

Tip: You can check traffic updates directly from your AngelSense app

Safety is important all year round and summer is no exception.

Be sure to take your AngelSense GPS tracker with you on vacation, use it for summer camp and other outings.

In addition, maintaining a wearing routine during the summer can make back to school time much easier on you and your child.
