In accordance with the method and system, a user logs in to a user device. The system identifies the user with the login information and monitors and keeps track of the device user time using a tracking module. The system also monitors and keeps track of position of the device using a device orientation module included in the system. In addition, the system also monitors the relative position of the user with respect of the device. Additionally, the system determines general orientation of the user and the device in the space.

The system uses device's built-in gyroscopes to maintain awareness of space. In an instance, the system can use object recognition to help determine general position and orientation in space.
