WHY DO I NEED A GPS TRACKER?
When making the decision to invest in a vehicle tracker. you want to know that you are getting the best on the market. Finding a GPS tracking device that will meet all of your requirements can be a difficult process. Like the name suggests, a GPS tracking device transmits data on the location of your vehicle. However GPS trackers, like the LiveTrack, also have additional security and safety functions.
Choosing the right vehicle tracker for your requirements will require you identifying what you are looking for in the device. If you simply want to track a vehicle's location, a basic vehicle tracker will suffice. However, if you operate a fleet of vehicles and fuel is a major cost area then reducing this through having valuable insights into fuel management, speeding, idling, and travel routes will be essential. If your focus is more on staff security in remote locations then alarms, geofences, shock sensors and alarm notifications will be critical to ensure the safety of your staff and their vehicles. If you're looking to protect assets in remote field locations then you'll be looking for something weatherproof and with a reliable power source.
Last year, an average of 141 vehicles were stolen each day in Australia, with a total of 51,394 motor vehicle thefts, of which only 67% were ever recovered. More worryingly, since 2011 the number of vehicles that have been stolen from business, commercial and government services has risen from 9.5% to over 16%. With the rising rate of theft and the damaging impact vehicle theft can have on our personal and business lives, GPS trackers are vital to mitigating risk, recovering stolen cars and potentially saving you tens of thousands of dollars. This is why our LiveTrack GPS trackers also feature a G-shock sensor that detects vibrations in and around the tracker and will send a burglar alarm to your phone the moment anyone tries to smash your window, open your door or jimmy your bonnet.
The LiveTrack uses GPS satellites to determine the exact location of the tracker and then uses the mobile phone network to transfer this location data directly to your smartphone. Using the free iCar app, your smartphone allows you to see exactly where the tracker is located at all times. You can also view where the tracker has been on previous days using the location history feature. You can set up a Geofence our virtual boundary so that you will be alerted if the tracker goes out of that boundary. When you park your car or boat you can also activate the Parking Monitor which enables the G-Shock sensor, which will detect any vibrations around the tracker and will send a burglar alarm to your phone the moment any disturbance is detected.
You can also add an unlimited number of trackers to your phone app, so you can rest assured knowing all of your vehicles/valuables are accounted for. You can even share your trackers location with other users so multiple people will know where the tracker is located at any time. This can only be done by sharing your trackers unique number and password, safeguarding you from anyone else being able to track you without permission or change your settings. This is especially hand in emergency and security situations.
