Vehicle theft is a major concern for individuals and businesses alike in Australia. In 2022 alone, over 55,000 vehicles were stolen, with an average loss of over $8,000 per vehicle. This translates to a staggering 1 in every 120 Australian homes falling victim to vehicle theft each year. Fortunately, GPS Vehicle Tracking offers a powerful solution for deterring theft and recovering stolen assets.
How Anti-Theft GPS Trackers Work:
These small, discreet devices are installed on your vehicle and transmit its location data in real-time to a secure online platform. This allows you to:
- Track your vehicle’s location: View the current location of your vehicle on a map, along with its speed, direction, and even historical movements.
- Receive instant alerts: Get notified immediately if your vehicle is moved without authorisation, enters or exits a designated area, or exceeds a set speed limit.
- Remotely disable the engine: Some GPS trackers offer the ability to remotely disable your vehicle’s starter motor, preventing the thief from starting it.
- Assist law enforcement: Real-time location data provided by GPS trackers can be invaluable for law enforcement in recovering stolen vehicles and apprehending the perpetrators.
The Benefits of Anti-Theft GPS Tracking:
- Deter theft: Visible GPS tracking devices can deter thieves from targeting your vehicle in the first place.
- Increase recovery rates: GPS trackers significantly increase the chances of recovering a stolen vehicle. According to studies, vehicles equipped with GPS trackers are recovered at a rate of over 80%, compared to just 20% for non-equipped vehicles.
- Reduce insurance premiums: Many insurance companies offer discounts for vehicles with GPS tracking installed.
- Peace of mind: Knowing that you can track your vehicle’s location and receive instant alerts provides invaluable peace of mind.
Additional Features for Enhanced Security:
- Geofencing: Set up virtual fences around designated areas, and receive alerts if your vehicle enters or exits these zones.
- Immobilisation: Remotely disable your vehicle’s engine to prevent unauthorised use.
- Fuel monitoring: Track fuel consumption and detect potential fuel theft.
- Tamper alerts: Receive alerts if someone attempts to remove or tamper with the GPS tracker.
- Multi-vehicle tracking: Manage and track the location of multiple vehicles from a single platform.
