Successful launch of Tracker's "Mesh Network" cracks down on car theft
‘Our latest figures show the success of the TRACKER Mesh Network, with well over four million pounds worth of stolen vehicles recovered using this new vehicle crime detection system,’ explained Stephen Doran, managing director of TRACKER. ‘Crucially, the TRACKER Mesh Network empowers drivers by allowing their cars to be used as detection devices to help police and TRACKER combat vehicle crime. We have already seen a significant increase in the number of vehicles police are tracking and returning to their owners, making this a clear illustration of the value of the Mesh Network,’ he added.
The Mesh Network acts as a listening device. When a vehicle fitted with TRACKER Locate or TRACKER Plant passes any TRACKER SVR equipped vehicle that has been reported stolen, it automatically sends a signal to TRACKER providing the location of the stolen asset – even if it is hidden in a garage, container or underground car park. Both drivers are totally unaware that the stolen vehicle has been identified by TRACKER’s Mesh Network.
Used by all 52 police forces, TRACKER’s products incorporate GSM, GPS and VHF technology in one unit, ensuring the speedy and safe recovery of stolen assets. The Mesh Network is the latest solution launched by TRACKER, harnessing the power of its SVR systems to increase the chances of catching and convicting thieves and returning vehicles to their owners.
Doran concludes, “90% of stolen cars fitted with TRACKER are returned to their owners and 80% of these are recovered within 24hrs. But with Mesh Network’s ever-expanding web, designed to catch car criminals, we hope to recover more vehicles faster than ever.”
