CNBC editor, Lora Kolodny sat down with Jiobit CEO, John Renaldi to talk about what led him to create his very own location monitor for kids. John told the now familiar story of losing track of his 6-year-old at a crowded Chicago park and how his initial search for a tracking solution ended in disappointment. John was not happy with the bulky options with poor battery life and tracking limitations.

During their meeting, Lora put Jiobit to the test to find out for herself if the product lived up to its promises.

John demo'd how to set boundaries around trusted locations so that parents can be notified when their child leaves or arrives somewhere. He also took her through how to add care team members so that mom, dad, nannies, and family members can share the responsibility - also allowing the parent to know who their child is with. Lora then wanted to understand how far the Jiobit would actually track. In the demo she made it a half mile away, however, it can go much farther. She was impressed with the ability to track at any distance - even from another country if necessary.
