Telematics: New device tracks vehicles worldwide

Security specialist CIS has launched a new range of devices to help keep track of company vans and retrieve stolen vehicles faster.

The first product to hit the market in the CIS range is
Cistrak, a tracking device.

Fleet operators can locate any vehicle with a Cistrak device installed within 10 seconds using only the
internet or a mobile phone, anywhere in the world.

In the event of a theft, the authorities can be contacted with the exact vehicle location.

The monitoring system allows users to set ‘safety zones’ with an advanced mapping system.

If the vehicle moves outside of these set
zones at any time, they are notified instantly online.

Charles Lovibond, strategic director of CIS, said: “Most
tracking devices are only activated once the police have
been contacted with the details, obtained a crime reference
number and then notified the tracking company with the
information, which can waste valuable time.

“Cistrak locates the vehicle almost instantly and it is the only
tracking device to operate worldwide, so wherever the
vehicle has been taken, you’ll be able to locate it.”

Cistrak works using a GPS system which locks on to
satellites orbiting the earth to obtain a pinpoint position
anywhere in the world.

The GSM system reports the information to
a mapping platform via the web or to a mobile phone.

It is available at £299 plus VAT , with no subscription fee for
the first year and a subscription fee of £60 per year plus VAT
thereafter.
