In the wake of recent school shootings, Legacy Technology has moved its initial public release date forward to offer SmartSheperd, its newest smartphone APP, to parents who wish to arm their children with a quick and convenient method to seek help in an emergency situation by simply pressing a panic button on their smartphone.
"Mobile Technology helps us move at light-speed, get more done and stay connected to our friends and family anywhere at anytime. But these phones are no longer for just making calls – they are Smart – and present a gateway of risk to our children," said company CEO Damon Davis. "We don't know who they are texting, talking to, websites they visit or worse – where they are when not at home.”
Parents who subscribe to SmartShepherd can rest assured that if their child is in immediate danger, simply utilize the APP’s feature that emits an audible deterrent to ward off attackers and at the same time sends designated emergency contacts a TXT, GPS coordinates, and photos about the incident.
This security feature is just one of many included in this innovative service. SmartShepherd also provides subscribers the ability to protect their children against more subtle, everyday threats such as bullying, drug use, pornography, sexting, pedophiles and suicide by providing access and monitoring to text and internet information going into and out of the smartphone through an online portal. Parents can choose to capture clues and take action.
“It isn't about trust. It's about knowing,” said Davis. “SmartShepherd helps turn the technology into a tool for protection and peace of mind for less than the price of a couple Starbucks lattes a month.”
For years, Legacy Technology’s SmartShepherd services has been helping customers around the world leverage this technology for a variety of purposes but now the company is determined to make it available and affordable to every parent and runs on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, TMobile, Straight Talk and virtually every carrier in the world.
