Through GPS capabilities, Axcess Family Finder is able to locate a child’s phone and give parents instant access to his or her location. Further, parents can create Scheduled Checks around specific locations to receive an automatic notification via text message when the child has arrived at a specific location. For instance, parents will receive a text message to ensure their child has arrived at school on time or is home by curfew. Axcess Family Finder costs US$9.99 per child phone.
