Lake Elsinore, USA – August 09, 2021 – IGEN Networks Corporation (OTCQB: IGEN, CSE: IGN), a leading innovator of cloud-based and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for the protection and management of mobile assets, today announced the availability of FamilyShield through Amazon.com, the leading e- retailer in the United States. Amazon.com has increasingly become the first website that consumers visit when they are making their buying decisions. Amazon’s algorithms and website works as its own search engine and with millions of active customers visiting their website, FamilyShield gains a large audience with American households.
American roads are a dangerous place for young drivers between the ages of 16-19 years old, with 6-8 young motorists dying each day from traffic accidents across the nation. During the last five years there were more than 9M licensed drivers aged 19 or younger driving on American roads. The average fatalities for those aged 19 or younger during this period has reached a national average of 1.5 per 10,000 young drivers.
FamilyShield was created to save young lives. Based on IGEN’s Next Generation Platform, FamilyShield is designed with the patented “Driver Signature” algorithms that offer accurate measurement of a driver’s behavior along with real-time alerts on speeding, crossing of location boundaries, along with providing a record of driving behavior over an extended period. Designed to be tamper proof for the adventurous teenager, FamilyShield provides peace-of-mind, security, and safety for families and their young drivers.
“Licensed drivers aged 19 or younger are the highest risk segment for fatalities and injuries as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These statistics created the impetus for a solution – what if we could reduce these fatalities by changing the young driver’s behavior? Whether it is speeding or erratic driving, we can now offer a real-time assessment of the young driver’s behavior behind the wheel of the family vehicle,” said Neil G. Chan, CEO of IGEN Networks Corporation.
FamilyShield is based on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Infrastructure designed for scalability, security, and performance. Now available to be purchased on Amazon.com, the FamilyShield Platform operates with a self installed plug-n-play unit for any make or year of vehicle that is managed from a mobile app. Whether the young driver is speeding or crossing location boundaries, FamilyShield creates a record and sends notifications to family members of key events including the attempted tampering of the unit. Compatible and portable for any type of passenger vehicle, FamilyShield data is secure and private, available only to designated family members. FamilyShield is available online for a one-time purchase of $129.99 for the plug-n-play unit and one year of service with no contract obligation. FamilyShield includes one year warranty on all services including the self-installed plug-n-play unit.
