Albany New York / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2014 / Aerius International Inc. (AERS) ("Aerius") or the ("Company") Harold Rounds, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Aerius International Inc. announced today that the company is scheduled to launch Lazarus, its prepaid voice, text and data plans on the Sprint Network beginning in Q1 of 2015. Lazarus subscribers can have as many as five people on their plans and scale up depending on individual needs.
The period between now and the launch will be spent producing streaming audio and video content, finalizing product design and creating the Aerius downloadable App store.
Subscribers to the plans will have access to educational and parental controls at no additional costs.
Aerius International will provide its subscribers with digital learning applications for grades K-12 of Common Core based, full featured education apps on its mobile devices. The Common Core standards are designed to build upon the most advanced current thinking about preparing all students for success in college, career, and life.
Aerius considers the safety of its users in many facets. Mobile downloadable content, such as wallpapers, ring tones, and games are screened to ensure that they are child appropriate. The free parental controls are accessible by parents logging in to their accounts.
The Feature Manager allows parents to determine whether their child's phone can use certain features. Parents can disable the use of picture messaging, to prevent problematic issues such as sexting. Downloadable content can be turned off, to prevent users from purchasing ring tones and games without permission. Mobile web access can be granted or denied, as well as specific sites, such as those that are not free to access, or social media websites.
The Time Manager allows account holders to control when an Aerius phone can and cannot be used; for example, the phone can be scheduled to not make or receive calls during school hours. These restrictions can be set up in minimum 30 min blocks, any times and days of the week.
The Contact Manager provides the ability to create black and white lists for numbers that parents do and do not want coming in or going out on their child's phone. This contact manager also allows the phone to reach certain numbers at all times, even during scheduled "off" times, for cases of emergency.
The Wallet Manager gives parents the opportunity to add dollars to their child's account, whether it is incorporated as a reward system for good behavior, allowing the child to purchase games and ring tones, or as a tool to teach responsibility. This feature allows parents to add money to their child's account on either a recurring or single time basis.
The Location Manager gives parents or caregivers the ability to know if a child has wandered outside of his/her designated safe zone. Geo-fencing is a predefined set of boundaries, like school attendance zones or neighborhood boundaries. If the child leaves the designated zone an email or text notification is sent via email or text to the parents' computer, tablet or mobile phone.
There will be more exciting announcements about the Aerius International smartphone and the Lazarus Prepaid Plan...Stay tuned.
