Best Child Security by Robert Siciliano

The Best You Can Get

  • Child Lures: What Every Parent and Child Should Know About Preventing Sexual Abuse and Abduction

    Robert says: The title says it all. When I was in my early 20s, I came across a video of the same title. I said to myself, when I grow up, I want to be like Kenneth Wooden. I’m close, but he’s the master. It’s a hard to find book, but well worth the search.

    • By Kenneth Wooden
    • Hardcover: 100 pages; language: English
    • Publisher: Summit Publishing Group (June 1995)
    • ISBN-10: 1565301757
    • ISBN-13: 978-1565301757
  • CyberPatrol

    Robert says: Don’t feel for one second that you may be breaking your child’s trust by monitoring their Internet habits. Children are being stalked all day every day online. You need to know what they are doing at all times.

    The old adage “don’t talk to strangers” was never effective advice and is even less effective today. In today’s technologically driven society, it is essential parents understand the risks children face on the Internet and become as schooled as possible.

    61% of kids admit to using the Internet unsafely or inappropriately. CyberPatrol puts you in control. CyberPatrol is designed for kids of all ages and all Internet skill levels. You control the extent to which you want to manage their Internet access. Filter chat, instant messaging, and other programs to prevent important information from being revealed, like names, addresses, and phone numbers.

    CyberPatrol includes monitoring and reporting, an important part of taking control of your family's Internet access. Detailed reports are supplied for each user on web pages visited, time and length of visit, and whether the page was allowed or blocked. View and save weekly and daily summaries. All activity data is password-protected and securely stored, to prevent unauthorized access.

    The real-time Activity Monitor details sites visited, images viewed, and the program that requested it. Any recorded Web address can be viewed, highlighted, and added to a user’s allowed or blocked list.

    • Block undesirable web sites
    • Keep porn, adult content, gambling, and other undesirable content away from your kids
    • For kids of all ages
    • Restrict chat & instant messaging
    • Protect up to 3 PCs with 1 license
  • ionKids (pronounced eye-on-kids)

    Robert says: The ionKids system was designed with both ergonomics and simplicity in mind. It consists of two components: a comfortable, unobtrusive bracelet for the child to wear and a convenient base unit a parent can easily carry and operate.

    Base Unit:

    This small, easy-to-use device is used by the parent or guardian to monitor the location of the Wristag™ wearer. The Base Unit, a handheld device, allows parents to monitor up to four Wristags simultaneously.

    Wristag:

    This specially designed, tamper- and water-resistant bracelet is worn by the child. The Wristag is designed to be fun to wear and requires no interaction on the part of the child. ionKids Wristags adjust to fit snugly against your child's skin, and contain a strong locking mechanism that cannot be easily opened without a key, which comes with the Base Unit.

    Wristag is equipped with sensors that detect the presence of the child’s skin. If the sensors perceive an excessive gap between the Wristag and the child's skin, it immediately activates the Wristag alarm and sends a simultaneous “tamper” alarm to the Base Unit to warn parents of the possibility that the Wristag has been improperly removed.

    • Monitor up to 4 bracelets simultaneously; no recurring monthly charges
    • Transmits up to 350 feet when outdoors and up to 200 feet indoors
    • Changes the transmission frequency, Wristag ID and corresponding information in the Base Unit, reducing the chances that a third party can scan or monitor a child’s Wristag
    • Strong locking mechanism that cannot be easily opened without a key, included with Base Unit
  • The BrickHouse Locator

    Robert says: Use it in your home, office, the mall, the park, sporting events, camping, and amusement parks, etc. The small, discrete Homing Tags and its compact handheld design can detect Tags as far as 600 feet away and can direct you to within one inch of your lost child or pet. With The BrickHouse Locator you will never fear of losing track of your children, family members, or pets again.

    Features:

    Locate Mode lets you find tagged items up to 600 feet away outdoors, and up to 250 plus feet away indoors.

    Includes both audio and visual directional guidance technology that leads you within one inch of the lost item.

    Alert Mode will warn you if any of your tagged items are outside of your designated “safety zone.” The safety ranges can be set independently for each one of the 24 tags.

    Miniaturized Tags can be attached to almost anything with a key ring or adhesive strip.

    Homing Tags give off an audible beep and flashing LED light to help locate items more efficiently.

    Panic Tag allows an individual to set off a distress alarm that is sent to the locator.

    Each device can track up to 24 homing tags.

    Tags and Handheld come standard with Duracell batteries for reliability.

    • Handheld locator device
    • 3 mini homing tags
    • Panic homing tag
    • 4 key ring loops and adhesive strips
    • User guide and Duracell batteries included

You will be happy with any of these

View your property, your pets, even your children. You can even listen in! It works with 802.11g wireless technology, and it lets you monitor its “view” (what its lens sees) from virtually anywhere.
