Help for the elderly

#1

On my local news today the police has started a program that uses a wrist born device that helps people find elderly people who might wander off. The devices are fairly large and apparently very expensive. It made me realize a Sentinel might be perfect with a few minor changes.especially if it could be made to look like like some thing the ladies might want to wear and/or make it rechargeable so they can put it on or in their pocket when they go out. A sentinel could save a lot of people in that way. I mean I keep one on my dog just in case…why wouldn’t it work for people? I already assume people will attach them to their kids backpacks etc. Just wondering has this been approached yet?

Just because someone has had an idea, doesnt mean the did anything with it. You could still develop a system.

This is a good idea. The XY4 Sentinels are also Findables and can already be used with the Findables app. The only possible problem might be the range as they use Bluetooth with a 300’ line of sight range, as I understand it. I admit that I have not looked seriously at the Findables aspect as I’ve been focusing on geomining, etc.
