Life360 Introduces Centralized Notification Center to Keep Families Better Connected
Leading Family Network Simplifies Daily Life with Family-centric Activity Feed
San Francisco, Calif. – October 8, 2014 – Life360, the leading Family Network, today announced an integrated Notification Center that shows an at-a-glance feed of the family’s daily activities and real-time alerts so users can seamlessly stay connected to the most important people in their lives. Now notifications of activities and check-ins are shared in a centralized family activity feed, bringing peace of mind and effortless awareness to the over 42 million families around the world who use Life360.
Whether it is knowing a child has arrived safely to school or seeing that a spouse has left the office, families who receive Place Alerts, Check-ins and Messages will now be able to view them all in a single feed within the app, and can message one another directly from the alert.
As part of the announcement, Life360 has also created a frictionless way for iOS 8 users to receive alerts when they are not in the app. Life360’s new Today widget and interactive notifications brings the family to the phone’s home screen by providing alerts directly to the home screen along with the ability to message other members in a seamless experience.
“The new notification center is another step towards becoming the hub for the family by providing a single feed to view the family activity throughout the day, helping us simplify the chaos of family life in a world of omnipresent connected devices,” said Chris Hulls, CEO and Founder of Life360. “From communication and coordination to the Connected car and Smart Home, Life360 is working to tackle all of these things and rethink how to make the day-to-day easier and more convenient for today’s connected family.”
Partnerships with companies like BMW, ADT and Samsung are positioning Life360 to become the hub for the connected family, offering ways for families to integrate family and location awareness into their smart homes, cars and wearable devices.
