Global Positioning System (GPS) devices have been used in automobiles for the last few years, but the technology that drives them and their application are both getting better. How can you use a GPS device as an expanded measure of home security?
At first thought you may only see the advantages of a car GPS device in the event of theft, but the tracking devices are also effective ways to keep a watchful eye on your teenagers and other family members out on the road. Should something happen to them a GPS device could be the solution to finding them safely.
For reliable security measures you will always want to buy the real time GPS systems. There are other types of devices available, but they are designed to collect and log data which you use to at a later date—most useful for businesses that retain car fleets.
Real-time tracking devices allow you to actually pinpoint a vehicle’s location from any Internet connection. You can choose from national or international devices.
Global Positioning System is actually a sophisticated Department of Defense satellite navigation system comprised of over two dozen orbiting satellites. GPS devices transmit a signal that is “read” by multiple system satellites that then plot the signal’s coordinates and sends the data back to earth for reporting and monitoring purposes.
Don’t confuse a security GPS tracking device with a dash-mounted navigation system, which also works via GPS. One is designed for security the other for communication and way-finding.
You’ll find a wide array of system features, but here are some of the more common and desirable should you want to include a car GPS as part of your home security arsenal:
Keep your car and family safer with a car alarm system that integrates with a GPS tracking device. Like your home security system, the presence of an alarm system deters many criminals that would prefer not to risk capture.
