There are many ways to use Trax Play. The lightweight GPS tracker fits into every pocket, while the application is easy to understand and handle.
“Did she make it to the bus on time?”
8 years old Emma has just started going to school by herself, taking the bus in the mornings and walking home with a group of friends in the afternoon. Anna was very anxious the first few times Emma went to school by herself and asked her daughter to carry a phone so she could check up on her. However, Emma usually doesn’t respond to calls on time and as of recently kids are not allowed to bring communication technology to school for privacy reasons. After doing some research on the internet, Anna discovered Trax.
She drops the small, kid-friendly tracker into Emma’s school bag and uses her phone to set a GeoFence around the bus stop in the mornings and the school during operating hours. This way she gets notified when Emma reaches the bus, the school, and when she leaves at the end of the day. It’s also a great way to see if the young girl strolls off on her way home from school or if she forgets to tell her mom that she is staying over at a friend’s house.
Anna can set as many Geofences, or Safezones as she wants. She can also set the times these geofences should be active.
Anna can easily see where her daughter is anytime, simply by having a glance at her phone. What a relief!
“Is he in trouble?”
Johan has been receiving some troubling calls from his son, Lucas’ school. Lucas has been missing in class a few times and was spotted going around town with older kids in their cars. After confronting his son about this behavior, Johan decides to check if he got his message across and puts a Trax tracker inside Lucas’ jacket. He sets a Safezone around the boy’s school to ensure he gets there on time and sets a notification for speeds over 30km/h. This way he knows if Lucas is leaving the school grounds during lectures or is traveling in a car instead of on his bike. He can also track exactly where his son goes after school. By adding this layer of safety, Johan can rest assured that his son is going where he’s supposed to and intervene if he isn’t.
“But what if something happens?”
Anna is training for a marathon, so she goes for runs several times a week. Living in Sweden, this means that during the winter months she mostly goes running in the dark. Johan is very worried about not knowing where his wife is for several hours at a time. Training long-distance, Anna runs a big part of her route in the forest. Quite often her phone is already on low battery by the evening when returning from work, so it regularly dies during her runs.
Now that they have Trax, both of them finally have peace of mind. Anna throws the small and light tracker in her pocket and is assured that her husband can easily track where she is on his phone. Johan has set a Geofence around his wife’s usual route, to ensure he is notified immedietly if she strays from it. Trax provides the extra security Anna needs to feel safe during her run and helps reduce Johan’s worries.
“Are we receiving the service we pay for?
The family is in a Doggy Daycare 4 days a week. Johan and the Daycare have agreed on walking dog SiggeSigge for at least a full hour in the afternoon. Johan pays an extra high fee to the Daycare to ensure Sigge get’s his daily big walk. However, the family notices that Sigge is very energetic in the evenings and wants to go out into the yard to play and run as soon as he gets home. Anna attaches Trax on Sigge’s collar using the original Trax accessory and checks the route the Daycare walks with him during the afternoons. Instead of the agreed hour, Johan notices Sigge actually only gets a 15 Minute walk. The family decides to talk to the Daycare again to ensure their agreement is fulfilled in the future.
As Sigge now carries Trax on his collar, he has a much lower risk of going missing. Johan remembers that because Sigge’s dog breed is rare, the risk of loss is a big issue when negotiating a rate for the dog insurance.
