LoJack Corp. (LOJN) Tracking And Rescue Service Announces New SafetyNet™ Tracking Bracelet Featuring A Six Month Battery Life

|Includes: LoJack Corporation (LOJN)

LoJack® SafetyNet™, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of LoJack Corp., announced today that its impressive SafetyNet tracking bracelet, for individuals with cognitive conditions that may cause them to wander, is now available with an outstanding six-month battery life.

Key features of the new SafetyNet tracking bracelet:

• The new SafetyNet bracelet features the most extensive battery life of any tracking and rescue product on the market today
• The battery life has been extended without increasing the size or cost of the bracelet
• The bracelet's tracking range of approximately one mile in on-the-ground searches and 5-7 miles in searches by helicopter has not been compromised despite the extended battery life
• Product maintenance for caregivers is now greatly reduced

This new capability is a significant improvement over its previous battery life of one month, and allows caregivers to only swap out the battery in their loved one's safety net two times every year. Even more impressive is that this high performance battery can be changed in only a few minutes with minimal disruption in the caregiver's and care recipient's routine. Tracking devices that utilize GPS and cellular technology typically require charging anywhere from every eight hours to every two weeks.

"I have to say the SafetyNet service has given me a piece of mind knowing that my child will be found if he wanders," said Jenn Bent, mother of a 9-year-old child with autism. "With this new longer battery life, I feel even more comfortable knowing I only have to change the battery twice a year as opposed to monthly. Thank you SafetyNet for making this an easier process."

Just like the original tracking bracelet, the SafetyNet bracelet is waterproof, lightweight (weighs less than one ounce), and emits a Radio Frequency signal that enables public safety officers to more effectively track people with Alzheimer's and autism even if they wander into a shallow body of water, a densely wooded area, a concrete structure such as a garage, or a building constructed with steel.

"It is our goal to deliver the most effective safety, security and protection solutions possible, which is why we have worked very hard to help caregivers protect the people they love from what can be the fatal behavior of wandering," said Kathy Kelleher, Vice President of LoJack SafetyNet. "We understand how demanding caregivers' responsibilities are, so we're very excited to make life easier for them in any way possible, while at the same time helping keep those in their care safe."
