Plant Security

At the heart of TRACKER Plant, is TRACKERs market leading stolen vehicle recovery system, offering an unrivalled level of protection against theft, as well as significantly increasing the chances of recovery. The system is Thatcham approved, offering added quality assurance and the possibility of an insurance discount.

TRACKER stolen vehicle recovery systems work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief wont even know its there. Unlike other tracking systems, the device works even if the vehicle is hidden in a container back of a trailer, offering farmers the highest level of assurance should the worst happen.

Fleet Tracking

TRACKER Plant is based on a combination of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Global Systems for Mobile Communication (GSM), but with the added benefit of TRACKERs successful and proven Very High Frequency (VHF) radio technology. Fundamentally, this is brought together in a robust and waterproof unit, proven to withstand the harshest plant usage.

The system reports real time information about the usage of plant, such as engine running hours, and allows owners to set a location radius within which the plant can move freely, alerting them if it is moved outside of this location, known as Geofencing.  The system will even inform owners when servicing of equipment is due.  TRACKER Plant summary reports are emailed weekly containing clear and concise plant data, both on an individual item plant or as a group,  for easy monitoring.

Doran concludes, The launch of TRACKER Plant encompasses the key issues surrounding the use of farming & agriculture equipment and its security.  We are bringing the farming and agriculture industry a powerful stolen vehicle recovery system, to tackle the problem of vehicle and machinery theft, as well as a new way to monitor the status of a machine and its usage, bringing significant cost efficiencies.  Designed specifically for the farming and agriculture plant sector, this new product will help protect valuable assets, close the farmyard gate on criminals, while helping farming businesses get the best out of their machinery.
