What does Geofencing mean and how will it protect your vehicle or valuable asset?

Geofencing for GPS tracking devices relates to a location area created around a particular object – in this case, your vehicle (or asset). It’s not a physical fence, of course, but an electronic one. When your vehicle moves out of this area a message is sent to your mobile phone (and emailed to you, if programmed). Whether you have left your vehicle in long-term parking or on the street you will be able to monitor the safety of your vehicle while you are away.

Of course there are many reasons why your vehicle could be moved without your permission:

  • Theft
  • Towed (by the local council, police, etc)
  • Valet parking takes your vehicle for a drive away from the parking area
  • Someone you know with a set of keys has taken it
