Asset Tracking for Personal Valuables

Keep a Virtual Eye on Your Valuables!

Do you want to make sure that your high-value possessions will always be found in case they get misplaced, lost or stolen? Modern technology in the form of Global Positioning System (GPS) trackers is an affordable alternative to watching your valuables 24/7 like it’s your job.

GPS devices such as trackers and locators can now be easily had for as low as $20 from online retailers.

How Does It Work?

GPS trackers receive signals from a group of satellites around the earth’s orbit to triangulate their precise location. When the triangulated coordinates are monitored at regular intervals, the tracker can then determine the speed, distance of its movement or duration of stationary position.

Depending on the functions and features built into the device, a GPS tracker may store these useful details within an internal memory for later retrieval or transmit them real-time using a cellular network.

Beyond real-time location tracking, logging and transmitting, some devices can be programmed to immediately report, via text or email, any signs of tampering or unauthorized movement of the item.

Models with weatherproof casings ensure that the device functions in any environment, while units with solar chargers enable longer-term tracking with an extended battery life. These value-added features enable even more items — including pets, vehicles, heavy machinery and other valuables — to be tracked real-time and hassle-free.

Tracking Down the Device You Need
