Annews24, Telecom provider Ooredoo has launched an innovative way to keep a tab on your children and pets at any time of the day
MyKi Touch and MyKi Pet are devices that can be worn by a child or pet, the device connects with the MyKi mobile application – are fitted with GPS and GSM tracking, so parents and pet owners can identify the location of the device at any time. They can also control, observe and make adjustments to the device using the MyKi application on any mobile device or tablet, or even through a web browser. The device can be pre-set with zones so that if the device leaves or enters the zone, parents and pet owners will be notified straight away
The MyKi Touch device has safety features such as call blocking, thus ensuring they can’t receive calls from unknown or blocked numbers, and special number speed dials whereby parents can set their own numbers as speed dials.
Parents can also input a set of authorized numbers to which the watch can make calls. And, in case of emergency, children can press an SOS button that automatically sends GPS coordinates to their parents and initiates a call to the speed-dial number straight away.
Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi, Director PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo, said, “Child safety is of paramount importance. We understand parents worry about their children, and equally pet owners worry about a beloved animal getting lost. With these simple yet highly effective devices, both parents and pet owners can relax a little more knowing they can track the location of the device their child or pet is wearing, and identify where that device is.
With the MyKi device, they can also rest assured their child will be able to contact them easily in case of an emergency. At Ooredoo, the needs of parents – and indeed pet owners – are important to us and we’re pleased to be able to offer these devices and services to enhance their digital lives.”
The MyKi Touch Pack subscription comes with 500 minutes of local calls per month and 0.5GB data, while the MyKi Pet Pack subscription includes 0.5GB data with calls and messages charged at standard out-of-bundle rates.
