There's one fear that everyone can relate to: the panic of losing a loved one.

Chills, stomach-churning, racing heart, sweat and heavy breathing… Can you imagine not knowing where your child is? Or your pet?

You don't have to. Not ever again.

We present you FINDSTER.


Thanks to Findster, you are always connected to the ones you love.

Findster tracks your loved one's activity and location, keeping you informed on their health and safety.


Findster Kids

Findster Pets
Findster is a new and innovative GPS tracking system working towards the safety of your loved ones, finding them whenever you want to. Compared to other systems on the market, Findster is free of charge. There are no monthly fees! That's what makes us your best choice.
There are two primary devices, one for you and one for your loved one. They are wirelessly connected to each other, and all you need to make them work is the Findster's App on your smartphone.
You can follow their moves in your pre-selected area and you receive alerts whenever they leave that space. With Findster you can also see how much time your child takes getting from home to school, or from school to a friend's house.

You can increase the range and capabilities 
of Findster.


To increase the ubiquity and range of Findster, there is a third device to the system, a base station that can be placed in strategic points, expanding your connection area and protecting who you care about even when you're not home.


Imagine your workplace is far from your residence. As long as you have a base station at home, you can continuously track your child or your pet in your neighborhood. Being away from home doesn't mean you can't be connected to those dearest to you.

And if your neighborhood joins Findster by getting additional base stations, the protection zone becomes even bigger. These base stations can also be placed in schools and playgrounds to increase the area of protection. The larger the Findster’s web, the more omnipresent you become.

But there's more...

We want to ensure your comfort. Imagine a sunny day, reading a book in the park—but you can't take your eyes off your child. Now you can. Findster has a fall detection alert.  If your child stumbles and falls, Findster will let you know.

What about your Pet...

Have you ever wished you knew what your pet has been doing 
while you were out?


Has he been resting or trying to eat your furniture?

Findster has an activity tracker option that allows you to know its activity levels during the day.

Make sure you are everywhere.


Support Findster now and be one of the first to have it, at a very (very) limited special price. Once you get it, you can use it forever WITHOUT MONTHLY FEES!
A short term step for a long term peace of mind.



Features




Findster’s Secret Sauce


The Findster ecosystem is composed of 5 components:
Portable charger, Parent/Guardian module, Child or Pet module, Basestation and smartphone App (Android and iOS).


The Child or Pet module was designed specifically to be comfortable when applied yet secure. This module includes a high-precision GPS system and a 3-axis accelerometer that enables the detection of whether the child fell or, in the pet’s case, what his activity index was throughout the day.


Wireless communication system

One of the Findster secrets is in its innovative wireless communication system, used to establish communication between the pet/child module and its guardian/parent module (or the pet/child module and the Base Station).

Our proprietary wireless protocol allows you to obtain communication range of 0.62 miles (1 km) between both modules, thereby eliminating the need to send the coordinates through a cellular connection. In this way, we have removed the required monthly fees that are intrinsic to other GPS tracking systems on the market.


Findster ecosystem


The Parent/Guardian module serves as a gateway between your smartphone and the Child or Pet module, enabling a long-range bi-directional communication between both.
All the controls and displays of data are centralised in the Findster App. 
The third element of the Findster ecosystem is the basestation.
The basestation can be placed, for example, in your home, powering a communication range of 1.24 miles (​​2 km). The basestation wireless communication uses the same proprietary protocol of the child/pet module. However, because it has no restrictions in terms of battery consumption or size, we were able to design a system with a range 2x greater than the wearable module.
And because each basestation has a wi-fi connection, even if the child or pet leaves your home’s security zone, when approaching another basestation it is automatically re-connected with your smartphone through the Cloud—always guaranteeing your privacy. 
Only you and those who you have authorised can have access to data modules.



Security zone


When the Child or Pet leaves the defined security zone, the application sends an immediate alert. If they are in the coverage radius of the Parent/Guardian module, the module’s location continues to be monitored. When the connectivity between the two modules is lost, the last detected position is saved. If this happens, the Findster ecosystem activates the alert mode and all other modules start searching for the lost Child or Pet. When they find it, they send its current location through the cloud to the Parent/Guardian’s smartphone App.

Furthermore, a module defined as lost will always look for a link to a basestation with  an internet connection. When getting this connection, it will send its current position to your smartphone and other people authorized to access the module’s location.

  2. Our ancestors had to go to pretty extreme measures to keep from getting lost. They erected monumental landmarks, laboriously drafted detailed maps and learned to read the stars in the night sky. These days all you will need is a GPS receiver and a clear view of the sky to know where you are. Thanks to GPS tracking. http://gpscustomerservice.com/advantages-garmin-nuvi-gps

  3. It is said that had it not been for a GPS tracking device in OJ Simpson's mobile phone, he would not have been found to be tried on his wife's murder. A GPS vehicle tracking device is much like driving around in your car with your mobile phone. https://biobigdata.ucsd.edu/members/1939/blog/2016/09/garmin-camper-660lmt-the-latest-navigator-you-need-to-have
