Can thieves outsmart yourvehicle’s tracking system?
If you are one of the millions of consumers who has a vehicle tracking device on your car, truck or motorcycle, you probably feel protected against thieves. You might even get a discount on your car insurance premium for being so prepared. After all, if your vehicle is stolen, your tracker’s signal will lead the security company straight to it. Or will it not?
Most people do not realize that it is surprisingly easy for thieves to jam tracking devices, or mask signals so security company cannot locate them. As thieves grow increasingly sophisticated, traditional vehicle trackers become less effective. But a new tracking technology, backed by Sigfox’s powerful 0G network, promises to give automobile owners the vehicle tracking protection they need.
Welcome to the next-generation vehicle tracking systems
Traditional tracking devices rely on cellular networks (GSM) to transmit their signals. This vehicle tracking systems was once the gold standard for auto theft protection. Placing an inexpensive, portable signal jammer inside a stolen vehicle is all what it takes for a thief to neutralize a tracking signal. Or a thief might use a handheld digital RF detector to find a tracking device so he can remove it altogether. Even less tech-savvy thieves know that if they hide a stolen vehicle in an underground garage or inside a steel shipping container, tracking signals go dark.
Instead of depending on the strength of GSM signals, next-gen tracking devices send very short, low power radio signals on random frequencies over Sigfox’s global 0G network. Thieves can’t use jamming devices to disable the signal, and they won’t be able to find a device using an RF detector.
And what is the best part? Next-gen tracking devices are easier to install, with a longer battery life than their predecessors, this means not only do they work better but they are less expensive. For less than the cost to replace a broken windshield, you can gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that no matter how smart car thieves get, your vehicle’s tracking system will always be smarter.
