Have you heard of Family by Sygic? I was recently introduced to Family by Sygic and have been using and exploring this SmartPhone App with my family members.
What is Family by Sygic?
Keep your kids safe and let your entire family be in touch!
Family by Sygic is about the most precious people in your life.
Just sit and count your family members that are carrying a SmartPhone around. With our kids, how often would your child forget their SmartPhone? If they are anything like my kids the answer to that question would be never. So what a better way to keep in contact with your children than an App right on their SmartPhone and yours that connects you. But don’t forget your own parents and other family members…. With Family by Sygic, you can make your own little network of family and friends that you wish to stay connected with.
Let’s take a walk through Family by Sygic and all it can do for you and the most precious people in your life.
First of all, you can get the Family by Sygic App for FREE right now whether you are using an iPhone or an Android phone.
Once you have downloaded the Family by Sygic App, the first thing you need to do is register. On the initial Family by Sygic screen you will be able to Sign In or Register if you have not done so yet. The registration link is located at the bottom of the start up screen.
Once you are all registered and have signed in to the Family by Sygic App, you can invite your family members to join your Family by Sygic network by adding and inviting them. With each person you add to your App, they will receive an invite to register and download the App so that you can connect with each other.
Now that you have your network of people you wish to stay connected with, you can do various things to set the App up as per your preferences. One great thing that you can do is setting up Safe and Unsafe Zones.
You can also message your members directly through the App through the yellow Message button. On this screen of the App you can also Check In with the Green Check In button which sends a notification with your location to all family members. The red Alert button will notify your members that you are in trouble. Alerts include your location.
In addition to typing your own messages to each other, Family by Sygic also has built in Quick Messages.
On the Family by Sygic App, you can see all the people you are connected to on a map. Each member in your Family by Sygic community will show up with the photo they have picked when registering and they will have a red circle around them pointing to where they are on the map. If their battery is low on their SmartPhone, a red battery will show up as in the photo below.
Here you can start a phone call or Navigation (works with Apple Maps and Google Maps on Android)
The grey button lets you Geofence any location and you will get notified when a family member gets there. For example, your kids are on a school trip and you want to know when they reach their destination so you set up a Geofence for that place.
The red Track button lets you Track a family member and will let you know when they leave their current position (by more that 500 meters). For example, your kids are on a birthday party at friends house and you want to know when they leave for home.
The eye in the upper right corner will switch on Augmented reality – this feature is great for outdoors, such as kids running around in a big park, but in close quarters inside a building the position may not be exact because there is no GPS reception).
So when would the Family by Sygic App come in handy? How about all the time! I love the idea of using the Family by Sygic App when my kids are on a field trip. I am always wondering if they have arrived at their field trip destination or near the end of the field trip if they have left to begin their journey back to school.
How about as my tween is off babysitting. The Family by Sygic App will provide a great connection with my Tween. Whether she is at her local community dance, venturing off to a movie or out babysitting, the Family by Sygic App will help us all stay connected.
So why use the Family by Sygic App?
***You no longer have to worry about where your kids (tweens and young teens) are, whether they are safe at home or playing out. Family by Sygic lets you share location with your kids and family using the one thing we always carry around – the Smartphone. It keeps you all in touch, lets you see where everybody is in real-time and gives you peace of mind.
***Family by Sygic helps parents in their busy day – they can set up familiar places as Safe zones and dangerous places as Un-safe zones and the app will automatically notify them when children enter or leave these areas.
***Family by Sygic is a great help if you wish to teach your kids responsibility and self-reliance but want to have peace of mind at the same time. You don’t have to keep calling your kids all the time to check on them. Kids can “check-in” to tell you where they are and in need send an “alert” with their exact location.
***Family by Sygic cares about your family privacy because only the people in your family can see each other’s position and share free messages with each other. Parents can also choose a completely private mode so that they are not visible on the map.
***The application is available as a free download on App Store and Google Play so parents can try it out. The app will always remain free for one parent + one child.
In coming weeks the cost will be $3.99 USD per family (that consist of more than one parent and one child) / per year.
***Family by Sygic is a PTPA Winner.
I know that one time in the past that I would have really loved to have had the Family by Sygic App would have been when my eldest was out in the trails mountain biking. We purposely got our son a cell phone to stay connected when he was mountain biking on trails. It would have been perfect to have had the Family by Sygic App back then.
