How does it work?
ScorpionTrack actively protects your vehicle against illegal movement using GPS geo fence technology along with latest technology movement detection hidden within the vehicle.
Upon Illegal movement detection ScorpionTrack will discretely notify our international control centre of a possible theft.
Fully trained 24hr ScorpionTrack monitoring staff will contact you with vehicle movement details in order to confirm a theft in line with current Police legislation and procedures. ScorpionTrack will continue to track any alarmed vehicle until recovery or false alarm has been confirmed.
Once theft has been confirmed and a crime reference number has been obtained from the Police, ScorpionTrack operatives will liaise with the Police in order to recover the vehicle.
Upon recovery, the ScorpionTrack operator can arrange for the return of the vehicle to the customers desired location. *Scorpion is not liable for any cost incurred for recovery.
What is Thatcham?
Thatcham's pioneering work in this field, in collaboration with vehicle and security equipment manufacturers, together with the police has brought about a major reduction in UK vehicle crime. The Thatcham security testing regime is considered to be one of the most rigorous in the world and acts as a model for crime prevention efforts internationally.
During the early 1990s, the news was filled with stories of joy-riders stealing cars and the subsequent damage and suffering they were causing. In 1992, the British insurance industry tasked Thatcham with improving vehicle security.
Thatcham engineers continuously analyse theft methods and new theft techniques used to break into or steal vehicles. This enables them to update the Security Criteria to combat new theft techniques. they use this information to keep vehicle manufacturers and security manufacturers updated on new attack methods, enabling them to improve on potential weak points in a vehicle's security design.
ScorpionTrack has been subjected to the rigorous Thatcham test requirements to meet there TQA level in vehicle tracking system approval. This will cater for any insurance company TQA tracking system requirement.
How accurate is ScorpionTrack
ScorpionTrack is able to provide, speed, direction, ignition state, battery condition and location details down to 500 yard accuracy to the Police control room in the event of a theft.
This information is gained using the very latest in UK designed and manufactured electronics along with the already proven GPS and GSM technologies.
All of this along with Thatcham approval to the highest standard ensures the best accuracy currently available through such technology.
What is GPS and GSM?
- These are the two communication methods used to locate a stolen vehicle with ScorpionTrack and relay the following details back to our 24hr control centre and subsequently the Police authority.
- GPS – Global Positioning System operated by satellites which will enable the positioning direction and speed of the vehicle. The same infrastructure as used to support Satellite Navigational devices.
- GSM – Global System Mobile Communications operated across the globe to support mobile communication devices and cellular mobile phone networks. This is used to communicate the above GPS details back to the ScorpionTrack 24hr Control centre.
- The above methods will supply ScorpionTrack and subsequently the Police with an accuracy location of less than 500 metres depending on local terrain etc.
