Industry Description

Home networks may be capable of personal protection for family members.  Cell phone locations can be tracked by cellular networks.  Pets can have identification chips imbedded under the skin for owner identification.  Personal medical monitors transmit vital signs data to health centers. 

Home networks may be able to supplement these capabilities with small accessories like watches, cell phones, and personal identification chips.  There are always issues of personal privacy, needs for protection, and governmental intrusions into our lives.  Perhaps the important issue here is personal control over such monitoring.
