SmarTrack Overview The SmarTrack Protector+ is a covertly installed device and does not require any involvement from the owner. You would use the vehicle as normal. SmarTrack utilises the satellite based GPS system for vehicle location. This enables the 24hr Secure Operating Centre to pinpoint your vehicles exact location within seconds. GSM technology is employed to communicate with the SmarTrack system.
The Protector+ incorporates a movement sensor, which detects unauthorised movement of your Vehicle.
If the Vehicle is illegally moved, a signal is sent to the SmarTrack Secure Operating Centre who will in turn call the owner to confirm a possible theft. If the theft is confirmed, SmarTrack can begin to track the vehicle live.
If your vehicle is stolen, you will need to obtain an incident/crime number from your local Police and pass this to the 24hr SmarTrack Secure Operating Centre. SmarTrack will then establish the exact location of the stolen vehicle using GPS technology and highly detailed mapping screens and liaise with the Police, Security and Recovery services providing regular location updates as necessary until your vehicle is located and recovered.
Once your vehicle has been located, SmarTrack will arrange for a Security Guard to wait with it until recovery can be arranged.
Unlike other tracking devices, SmarTrack can be transferred from one vehicle to another by any SmarTrack approved engineer.

Alarms and immobilisers are installed to vehicles to deter thieves, unfortunately this cannot always be guaranteed, if the thief is left undisturbed for long enough they can be overridden. Tracking devices on the other hand are installed to track the vehicle following a theft, these devices are far more likely to succeed as there are no tell tale lights or sirens to attack. We are all well aware of the vehicle crime problem in the UK. Not only are vehicles stolen by joyriders but many are also stolen to order. Professional gangs could be targeting your pride and joy today. Key theft is a serious problem today. Even though many vehicles are now equipped with sophisticated alarms and immobilisers, they are rendered useless if the thief has your keys!
