Child safety alarms are made up of two units: the Transmitter and the Receiver. The child wears the transmitter, while the parent holds onto the receiver. The transmitter emits a steady signal to the receiver. This signal may be operative anywhere from a several inches up to a couple hundred feet.
When activated, some alarms transmit a beep as loud as 130 db. Child safety alarms are best used for older, more active children who may get lost more easily. You should always keep an eye on your child, so generally speaking, babies and toddlers can't get very far if you've already been keeping watch over him/her!
