A Matter of Motorbike Security: Tracking Devices
If you own a motorcycle, it is, without doubt, a valuable asset that you will want to ensure has the highest level of protection. In terms of vehicle security, you might want to think about installing a tracking device. Many motorists invest in tracking devices for added peace of mind and protection for their asset.
The good thing about tracking devices for motorcycles is that they can lower the cost of insurance premiums, provide added security and help give you peace of mind in knowing that you have ‘extra help’ in locating your motorcycle in the unfortunate event of theft.
Whether you have a standard, superbike or a classic vintage motorcycle, there are tracking devices available to fit a range of bikes. However, due to the size of motorcycles, they are usually easier to steal and hide than larger vehicles so it is important to choose an effective motorcycle tracking device. Some of the tracking devices on offer:
Datatool TrakKING GPS Bike & Recovery is said to be very user friendly with full 24/7 monitoring & recovery assistance. Includes automatic movement without ignition text alerts, battery tamper alarm, location on demand via website and many more features.
If your motorcycle were to be located inside a building, underground car park or other underground location, a GPS satellite may not be able to determine the tracking device location. For this reason, Tracker motorcycle tracking devices are an advanced alternative to GPS tracking systems as it uses GPS and Very High Frequency (VHF) signals, which can be detected by police vehicles.
Swiftrak uses the latest global positioning, mobile phone and motion sensing technology, implanted deep in the heart of your bike. Your bike is covered 24/7 and following theft will alert the Secure Control Centre to provide the exact location of your bike 365 days of the year – the Control Centre is manned 24 hours per day every day of the year.
Whatever your reason for installing a motorcycle tracking device, there are tracking systems which have been specifically designed to suit individual safety, security and personal vehicle tracking needs.
