Audiovox is entering the "personal locator" market with a new child locator system. Called the CL500W, it is expected to be part of a new series of products that will include pet finders and even products to locate household valuables.
The CL500W includes a wrist transmitter with a 1-mile range for the child to wear. Parents can also set the transmitter to operate at a narrower range and the unit will sound an alarm if the child steps out of that range.
The system comes with a two-way transceiver for the parent for locating the child via eight directional points. It can operate with four additional devices for tracking several kids. The CL500W has a target retail of $200 for a set.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
