Plant Tracking

Plant Tracking using GPS Tracking

 

We cannot name the company but in the last few days 2 of these were stolen together but found a short time later. The COVERT TRACKERS are live 24/7. They tracked every moment so that Police were able to recover CCTV and ANPR images of the vehicle and occupants who stole them. A good result all round.

Why use GPS Plant Tracking and the best ways to use it. 

Just take a moment to think about Tracking your plant and where you would hide it. We know, its not easy to hide it as there are very few places where you can attach a power supply.

You really need to be creative when installing GPS Tracking into Plant and Machinery. Think about items such as seats, heating vent routes and so on. We are more and more seeing plant and machinery stripped in 20 minutes. They really are searching for the GPS Plant Tracking Devices.

How to beat them? You have to be creative and not always install a wired GPS Tracker. Think about using Magnetic GPS Trackers. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of using Magnetic GPS Tracking Devices such as our Viper 6700 Magnetic GPS Tracker.

Advantages

  • There are multiple places to hide a Magnetic GPS Tracker. Take the Viper 6700 this is 90mm x 50mm x 47mm in size.
  • IP67 rated so a totally waterproof GPS Tracker.
  • It has 2 x 35 KG built in magnets to attach to anything metal.
  • No lights to identify this as a GPS Tracking Device.
  • Months of Covert Tracking.
  • No wiring or installation needed.

Disadvantages

  • You will need to charge the Magnetic GPS Tracker every so often depending on battery size.

Something VERY SPECIAL – Shhhhhhhhh

 

Everyone talks about GPS Tracking but how does it work. Without boring you and in simple English. The GPS Tracker connects to satellites and uses its antenna and data points to communicate this to you. GPS tracking uses a network of satellites to determine the location of a device that was specifically designed for that use. The simple idea is that a GPS tracker uses a process called trilateration to identify its physical location based on its distance from GPS satellites.

 

Something we are seeing more and more of is people using high end GPS Blockers.

Don’t PANIC

Our I Track 3 GPS Tracker has  a backup locating system where WE can turn off the GPS Tracking and TURN ON the WIFI location Services. YEP… This grabs the local WIFI signals such as house routers and peoples phones to give a position on our Tracking Panel. This is ideal for Plant, Machinery, VW Transporters, VW Camper vans and motor homes which are so sought after by thieves.
