What they are
Global Positioning Systems such as GPS Trackers operate via wireless connection between the GPS device and multiple Satellites to provide the user with immediate geographic/location data. This form of technology provides a wireless method for Business owners and Private individuals to maintain a watchful eye on assets such as transport equipment, commercial and personal vehicles, and other high value assets.
Today GPS Tracking Systems are commonly used around the globe in loss prevention, fleet tracking, remote surveillance, asset location and recovery, remote employee safety, and in shipment tracking operations. GPS Tracking Systems are increasingly employed within industries such as:
How they can be used in an Investigation
Within the Private Investigation world, GPS Tracking Systems have a variety of uses including monitoring the activity of an individual(s), to recover an asset after a loss, to indicate when an individual is ‘on the move’, and to track the movement of assets and products during transit.
Advantages of using a GPS Tracking System
Keeping a watchful eye on business assets or conducting lengthy surveillance can be expensive, time consuming, and require extensive man power. Employing a GPS Tracking Device decreases the pressure on business and personal commodities. For example, a GPS Tracker may be employed at the start of an investigation to identify a Subject’s movement patterns and areas frequently visited. Armed with this information, the investigative team may be able to plan an efficient surveillance operation which makes use of already known movement times and directions of travel.
Car thieves are likely to be aware of police surveillance, therefore are more likely to carry out anti- surveillance drills to avoid detection and arrest. Employing a GPS Tracking Device to business and personal transport assets provides an extra layer of security and dramatically increases the likelihood of asset recovery and criminal arrest.
Remote employees operating in isolation are a particular safety concern for many employers. GPS Tracking Devices provide an extra level, if not the only level of safety for solo remote employees. If an employee working remotely failed to make a pre-scheduled call to their supervisor, the GPS Tracking Device will provide an accurate location for emergency services.
How Six Technologies Victoria provides your GPS Tracking System
The GPS Tracking Systems we employ are locally sourced and serviced. Our tracking solutions provide flexible schedules which enable the user to monitor a device using both GPS and cellular ID technology.
Our Trackers utilize a combination of gyros and accelerometers to actively detect and track motion. These devices may also come with anti-removal detection sensors that record when a device is removed without authorisation.
Our devices use the latest email, SMS text messaging, and/or web alert technology to provide the user with immediate alerts when the devices enter or exit a predefined geographical boundary. Each GPS Tracker has the capacity to collect and store up to 12,000 events and data locations should a device leave cellular coverage.
