But which is the best car insurance tracker for your own needs?
Typically insurance providers will stipulate a specific category of vehicle tracker that they will need you to have installed to validate your policy in the event of theft. However, some insurers might just say that they want you to install any type of Thatcham approved GPS trackers, as long as it has a 24/7 monitoring service in place.
One of the most popular categories is the new S5 Thatcham approved tracker.
The S5 tracker is the newest category VST (vehicle security tracker) available. These are compatible with all road vehicles and benefit from a 24/7 emergency control room, on hand to guide the police directly to where the vehicle is. They do this using the real-time GPS tracking provided by your S5 tracker, which has global coverage.
A private recovery team are also sent to the vehicle’s location, to guard the vehicle whilst it is returned to you..
For those concerned about having their driving monitored it’s worth noting that the control room only log in to your vehicle’s real time position once a security alert has been triggered.
The most proactive of these alerts is exclusive to the S5 tracker, and is the advanced ADR system.
ADR (Automatic Driver Recognition)
The ADR is the quickest way of raising an alert if somebody takes your car without your permission.
As the authorised driver you will have a small fob with you when you drive the vehicle. This fob is about the size of a £2 coin, so easily fits in bags, wallets, phone cases, pockets etc.
With the rise in both key theft and relay theft, vehicles are being stolen quickly and covertly without raising any noise, fuss or suspicion.
However, with the ADR system, as soon as your vehicle moves without your proximity ADR fob present an alert is triggered in the control room instantly. They will then contact you to confirm the status of your vehicle.
Other alerts include a battery tamper alert, tow away alert and lift alert. This makes the S5 tracker one of the most comprehensive vehicle security devices available. Take a look at the S5 Trackers here
