GPS Vehicle Surveillance Equipment is Here to Help You!
Surveillance is not only a game of PI (private investigators) or the police. You can also have a surveillance gear (maybe not as sophisticated as wearable spy equipment or mini audio recorder measuring the size of your fingernail…) to keep tracking almost anyone you want. What I’m talking about here is GPS tracking system.
GPS tracking devices allow you to track your car or any other moving object, like boat, bike or even a plane. GPS trackers are even installed in some high-tech cell phones, which allow you to track a teenager or anyone who uses such a cell phone. However, the main use of a GPS tracking equipment is for vehicle surveillance.
How many times you’ve seen, heard, or maybe even experienced yourself how burglars steal a car right in the middle of the day. Such things happen every single day. And the worst part is that rarely do the police find the hijacked vehicle. So how can you protect yourself from such unpleasant “surprise”? That’s right, by using a GPS tracking system.
But first, let’s see where else GPS can be of good use.
GPS Can be Installed Anywhere
Such GPS tracking devices are very small; they can even fit into the palm of your hand. So you can easily attach them to the bicycle or a motorbike for instance.
These devices can be easily attached to the car as long as they’re magnetic. You could place one under the hood, in the back of your car or absolutely anywhere else you can think of. Moreover, these GPS trackers have waterproof casings, so you wouldn’t have to worry about the damage of such devices.
GPS systems are used in yachts or boats by the owners or renting companies. As long as these gadgets are weather and water-proof, they do a great job for tracking the boat. They’re very useful if you don’t want to get lost.
Handheld GPS trackers are very good if you like trips. If you go to a picnic and suddenly get lost, you can be rest-assured that you’ll find your way out, because these handheld GPS devices have easy to understand user interface and great mapping features.
GPS Data for Vehicle Surveillance
As mentioned earlier, the main area where a GPS system is mostly used- is for tracking vehicles. Such GPS devices are preferred by regular company owners or truck company owners.
Managers want to know who and when are abusing their cars. Because employees love to drive cars faster than they should. They love to drive the vehicle on weekends or holidays for other purposes than the work. So naturally, business owners want to track their employees and find out what’s going on with their cars. And they have great options at doing this.
Monitor the Speed of the Vehicle - If an employee is driving too fast, he’ll waste gasoline and ware tires off sooner that normally would. So a GPS tracker can help you in this situation easily. A GPS tracking system monitors the speed of the vehicle. Whenever the speed limit is exceeded, you get an alert and a report, so you’ll have a proof and know who exceeded the speed.
Know Where Your Car is at the Moment - Let’s say you’re just turned on your computer and you want to login to the central station to find out where your car (or cars) is at the moment. GPS lets you do that without any trouble. You login to the system and see exactly where your car is now.
- Signal Update Interval - You can set the desired update frequency of the signal of your GPS device. For instance, if you don’t need to track your vehicles very often, you can set a frequency to 30 minutes. Otherwise, you can set it to 2 minutes and know where your car is precisely every 2 minutes.
GPS tracking system is very useful. Now only can it tell you where your car is located at the moment, it also tells you about the behavior of the person driving the car. Does he stop often near some burger restaurant? Does he take a break and spend some time in the bar? You’ll know everything.
