Security for students in the college campus, children’s in the school campus has become a critical issue in these days. The school/college authority and the parents want to know whether the student is within the campus area or not. Elderly citizens also need to be monitored for confining within a zone like hospital. The proposed system is to design and develop a smart GPS watch that will track the position of the attached person, monitors for a sudden fall and alerts the authority in the event of a fall or when that person crosses a given border line of a predefined zone. It is derived from GPS satellites; the clock shows the universal time and is as accurate as an atomic clock. Integrating our system within a device like watch would make the user comfortable, for not carrying additional device like a mobile phone. This system helps school and college administration to prevent students from crossing an invisible fence that alerts school authority via SMS when they leave the zone.
