Spain suffers an average of car and motorcycle theft higher than the rest of Europe. Specifically, in our country around 100 means of transport are stolen every day, according to the Ministry of the Interior. Unfortunately, only 10% of stolen motorcycles are recovered.
To avoid these figures, Smart Alarm V.2 arrives in Spain, a GPS anti-theft locator for motorcycles and cars. The product, developed by Trackting, is the advanced version of the first GPS alarm that made the Italian brand famous in the last two years, which even led it to double its turnover in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic.
The new model is practically the size of a Zippo lighter, measuring just 6.2 x 4.4 x 2.3 cm, and weighing 70 grams. This allows it to be installed on more types of motorcycles and mopeds, even adapting to tight spaces. In addition, it is waterproof with IP56 protection and does not require any cable to the vehicle for its installation. The battery has a range of 4 months and up to 6 months on standby.
Regarding usability, a single wireless proximity recognition device allows communication with several trackers of the same owner. An additional function to facilitate those who have installed Smart Alarm in various vehicles, such as motorcycles, cars, scooters or vans. Pairing can be done by the user through the App following a few simple steps.
At the same time, all Smart Alarm users can enjoy unlimited alarm notification phone calls, regardless of the version they own. Regarding the firmware, with Smart Alarm V.2 updates quickly and intuitive from the application itself.
