Zones with alerts

Zones are circular perimeters with radius that range from 100m (328ft) to 500m (1640ft). ESET Parental Control allows you to create multiple zones and personalize them with a unique name and icon to keep them organized. You will receive a notification each time your child enters or exits a zone.

 

note

Zones sample scenario

You create a zone named School and a zone named Home. When your child exits the Home zone, you will receive a Home Departure notification with the time of departure from the zone. When your child enters the School zone you will receive a School Arrival notification with the time of arrival into the zone. When your child leaves the School zone you will receive a School Departure notification with the time of the departure from the zone. You will also receive a notification with the arrival time and the departure time so you can check the total length of time your child remained in the School zone. You will receive another notification when your child arrives in the Home zone.

Zones distance

Zones should be separated by a distance that takes at least 5 minutes to cross while walking to prevent confusing notifications.

Notifications will be sent after your child spends a minimum of 3 minutes in a zone to prevent multiple notifications when your child is moving along the borders of a zone.
