Goofs

At one point in the film the family are asked to carry GPS trackers. These were supplied so as to track the family no matter were they are. Since the film takes place inside a family home the GPS trackers would be useless since they need direct or "line of sight to the sky" to "see" satellites in order to accurately track via GPS.
