Are certain people using your phone for something they shouldn’t be?

Phone Manager Plus
If they are, you’ll know about it with the Phone Manager Plus, an easy-to-use device that tracks and stores data on the last 2,000 incoming or outgoing calls, including time of day and call duration. It’s ideal for such applications as making sure your teenager isn’t calling her boyfriend after you’ve gone to bed, or seeing that the nanny is actually watching the kids and not chatting with friends all day long. Runs on 3 AA batteries (included).

No Caller ID Subscription is Required to Monitor Outgoing Calls
On outgoing calls, the Phone Manager Plus lists the number dialed, time and duration of the call — no Caller ID subscription is needed! On incoming calls, the Phone Manager Plus logs time and the number of callers based on Caller ID information (incoming monitoring requires a Caller ID subscription from your telephone service provider).

Works on Any Phone Jack on the Line
The Phone Manager Plus will work on any phone jack in the house; it doesn’t have to be the one the phone is connected to. This feature is ideal if you don’t want to reveal that the phone line is being monitored. And since it’s battery operated, the phone monitoring will continue, even if there’s a power outage.

You can also listen to music from your Bluetooth-compatible phone or media player, or add mobility to your Bluetooth-compatible computer’s Internet telephone capability.

Make Sure Your Child or Elderly Loved One Can Be Identified in Case they Get Lost, Injured or Unable to Speak for Themselves

Identity Pal
IdentityPal
The IdentityPal is a USB data storage device used to aid in the retrieval of detailed medical records, pet owner details, and contact information in the event of an emergency.

Templates
The unit comes pre-installed with easy-to-use identification templates. The templates are to be filled out with any amount of identification information that suits your specific needs. Information is read-only without password. IdentityPal software is Windows-based, extremely user-friendly, and resembles Outlook in design.

Uses
The IdentityPal can warn of existing medical conditions, allergies, current medications, and also serve as a complete portable database of medical records (and insurance information) for use during medical care. Have peace of mind while your child is away at school, a friend’s house, the shopping mall, amusement park, and especially while traveling. The IdentityPal is also the first hi-tech luggage tag, and a thorough pet ID tag, complete with information about your pet’s medical history. Also a personal database for documents and records.

Security For Documents
If the intended application of your IdentityPal is for personal use, you may include sensitive information that you would not like to be exposed (such as certain medical or legal records). To protect your information from ever being lost or stolen, you have the option to password-encrypt your information with 128-bit AES (Advanced Encyption Standard). Unlike the majority of “Find your child or pet” products, no information is stored online, just waiting to be hacked into, only in the IdentityPal itself.

Customizable
The software pre-installed on the IdentityPal allows you to edit templates and customize however you wish. You can even create new templates to suit any use. Simple, voice-guided instructions are included to guide you through the process.

When Found
IdentityPal will autorun; feature will automatically launch the included information-retrieval software (no installation necessary). The software dialogs will prompt the viewer with immediate medical and contact information. A series of quick, simple tutorials will guide the user through the software and show them how to obtain the information they require to assist the IdentityPal holder based on the particular situation.
