Tested to (in)destruction

Whilst conventional tracking devices (like our own CanTrack GPS) are perfectly fine for protected environments inside vehicles, they are not designed to operate in challenging environments, or with theft specifically in mind. The Protect is incredibly robust, engineered using PA6 Nylon Polymer casing, with the electronics laid inside and filled with epoxy resin. This sets as hard as a rock, and as you can see from the video means it can be used in the toughest of environments.

The Protect can be jet washed at close range and is standards tested for a wide range of physical and environmental tests, as detailed in the specifications.

The unique technology in the Protect allows it to last for years despite being battery powered and small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Conventional wired tracking devices are very easy for thieves to find, due to the fact they need to see the GPS satellite signal (which is very weak) and be wired to a power source. Without these restrictions, the Protect can be hidden in far more places, is easy to self-fit and can be moved from one vehicle or machine to another without costly installation charges.

The CanTrack Investigations Unit

Our unique Investigations Unit is a national team exclusively comprised of former Police officers, with an average recovery rate in excess of 91%. Our customers tell us our team is what sets us apart from all others. We have reunited our partners with over £25m worth of assets. The team is based nationally in the UK and Northern Ireland, and between them have nearly two centuries of Policing experience! It’s a significant investment from CanTrack, and the combination of technology and experience personnel makes a real difference to a successful theft outcome.

The timeline opposite gives a representative example of key points in a recovery. Each job is unique, with different challenges on where the stolen is, and who’s around – so your experience may vary.

Not only are we managing the situation on the ground in your best interests, but we utilise specialist homing beacon technology in the last mile of recovery. This allows us to locate equipment indoors or under cover – a weakness of conventional tracking. We have relationships with law enforcement in the UK and abroad through our contacts in INTERPOL and through our IAATI memberships.

The Investigations Unit liaise with both the Police and yourselves throughout the process of recovery, taking this stress away from you after the initial Police report. These professional relationships means law enforcement responds well in situations individuals, businesses and other tracking companies may struggle to have them attend for a legal recovery once found. This is because they know that with CanTrack, they will not be wasting their time with tracking units reporting locations after being cut out of the vehicle, and that we have physically site assessed the site of the recovery.

You don’t just buy a Protect, you buy Us

Serious organised criminal gangs that operate in the theft arena, utilise technology and advanced skills to steal.  The have an established global supply chain to move on, and sell what they have stolen from you and it’s easy to under-estimate just how sophisticated this criminal network is.

We live and breathe the technology utilised by thieves for theft and work with the press and law enforcement to continuously adapt and refine the CanTrack Protect technology and service.

We, researching and test the same technology the thieves use from various open and closed sources. We not only use this information to refine the CanTrack Protect, we share our insight with industry professionals in global conferences, and through the press and television.

Jamming devices are a good example of this technology, and are routinely used by criminals in the theft of vehicles and machines. They block the very sensitive GPS signal in conventional trackers (which is very weak and why conventional tracking systems have to be installed in specific places where they can ‘see the sky’.)

As the video shows, they are extremely effective, and render any tracking system that relies solely on GPS signals (almost all of them), completely useless in the event of theft. The CanTrack Protect has three different location technologies, and a very powerful radio transmitter for use by our Investigations Unit to pinpoint locations indoors or out. The whole system has been designed to be extremely resistant to jamming technology.
