  • Thank you Eric. We have used the Gizmo watch through Verizon as a simple GPS option and limited contacts. Unfortunately, my son had a hard time keeping the watch on and eventually lost it. We also have video monitoring in our house that allows us as his parents to start giving him more independent time at home and the safety that we can check in on him remotely. There is no subscription with our videos, it runs off WIFI, so it was just the initial cost of the cameras. We have one in his room, the kitchen/livingroom area and one outside as he goes out to swing often. That is through Eufy Security. You do need a smart phone to download the app to be able to view remotely.
