Smart Tracking Device for your Kids with Circo

As we look at the phenomenon of missing children in Malaysia, only 103 of the 210 children reported missing between January 2011 and October 2012 were found. That means 107 children still missing. Missing children are commonly attributed to running away from home, with some cases associated with abduction and sexual abuse. Those abducted were sold for body parts and sold into sexual slavery and exploitation. As we remembered the case of eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin who went missing after she went to night market in 2007 where she had been sexually assaulted and murdered.
As a mother of 5 Little Angels, I was worried too whenever my children went out with their friends. Since they are growing up now and have their own life, we can't really stop their freedom especially on my eldest Angel, CM who is 13 years old now. Once CM told me that she is going to 1 Utama Shopping Centre for lunch and movie times with a group of friends, I agreed to it but when I tried to get her from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., both her phone and her friend's phone unable to get through. I was damn worried about her safety and I really don't know where to find but luckily after that she able to contact me saying that she is fine and just that her smartphone run out of battery. Because of that case, I wanted to get my child a smart tracking device so that I can know their whereabouts with just a press of button and to ensure that they are safe always. Circo is a smart tracking device for our children that uses most advanced location technology including GPS, AGPS, WiFi and Cell ID to track our kids.

The device enables connection to a cloud based application that can help me to locate the device and our kids. Measuring 37x32x11 mm and weighs only 18 grams, the battery charge lasts a few days. The device is small enough to put at your kid's pocket or even a school bag.
Circo communicates with the App through 2G Cellular network. You will need to prepare a SIM card with SMS and data service. Monthly data usage is about 30MB and it is currently available in 85 countries which include Malaysia. Let me guide all of you on how the device operated. First, download Circo App through your smartphone or tablet. You're required to create an account with a phone number. Add the device and insert the SIM card. The SIM card that I had used for this App is Digi Prepaid SIM card.

Scan the QR Code or just enter the number of the device. After that you can create a name for the device and enter the phone number for the SIM Card inside the device. Since everyone is playing Pokemon now, I put my device name as Pokemon and had uploaded a picture of Minion for my device.

Whenever I want to locate my Pokemon, I just press the button "Where is Pokemon" and the device will update me the location of my Little Angels. Whenever she leave the house, the App will update me as above.

Whenever my Little Angel needs any help, she just need to press the yellow triangle button as above and I'll immediately received an alert sms that my Little Angel need my help and I need to open my Circo App to see her location. When I open my App. it will show the message below and I need to track her position immediately. Once I know her position, I could go there to help her out.

The Advantages of having Circo are as follows :-
  1. Circle of Live - It had a Circle of Love where you can follow many Circo devices and a Circo device can be shared with many people. 
  2. Long Battery Life - Their long Battery Life could lasts a long time without sacrificing accuracy or reliability. 
  3. Activity History - You could look up where our child went in the past seven days. 
  4. Indoor and Outdoor Positioning - Circo uses a blend of GPS, AGPS, WiFi and Cell ID to position both indoors and ourdoors.
  5. Tracking Mode - During an emergency, you can turn on tracking mode and Circo will keep updating its location.


Circo, a smart tracker device from Athentek Inc was price at RM418 but for a limited period of time only at Malaysia, you could get it at RM189. Which is more than 50% discount with free shipping at http://www.athentek.com/. Do like them at their facebook page too at https://www.facebook.com/Circo.Athentek.

Some might say that we can track our kids through phones also but the battery at our phone can drain very fast and with a dead battery, we won't able to tract them. Since the location is stored in a secure cloud, nasty people should not be able to access the tracking data too. With Circo smart device following my Little Angels wherever they go, Mommy Jane had a peace of mind and rest assure that they are in safe location all the times.
