Mesh Networking: It Takes a Village

Product Updates

Let’s face it, even the best parents could use an extra set of eyes. Yes, Jiobit locates your most precious cargo, but we also believe it’s equally important to know WHO they are with. This is where Mesh Networking comes in. 

Jiobit securely connects to smartphones nearby (provided you’ve invited them into your community) so you know where your kids are and which caregiver they are near. 

For instance, when my family went to Six Flags this past weekend, my wife knew my son was with me rather than wandering around the Viper roller coaster alone. Without this important context, knowing only my son’s location would create more anxiety than it reduces. (Viper is a great roller coaster by the way)

Jiobit prototype and test software

All this to say, your Jiobit will work better if everyone on your block has one for their kids.
