A homeowner’s biggest nightmare is to see a completely ransacked property after arriving back to their abode. Home security systems are designed to deter criminals and alert the family of a break-in attempt, but are inept at actually stopping a thief from stealing your goods. If you have surveillance cameras installed then there is a faint hope that the evidence will help to catch the perpetrator, but it won’t guarantee the recovery of the items that could already be sitting in a pawn shop. The best course of action is to plant GPS tracking tags on your most valuable belongings and use a locator app to discover their whereabouts.
Swift Raids, Quick Money
While pillaging a property, burglars tend to follow a particular strategy. They go for small lightweight objects such as jewelry, watches, wallets and purses. Then they move on to the electronics (laptops, phones, or possibly flat screen TVs) and then other goods (medicine, tools, or furniture). Most robberies only take a couple of minutes before the interlopers storm out. The stolen goods usually land at a local pawn shop, therefore you should pay a visit to as many as possible. But that’s a lot of bother, why do all that work when GPS trackers can help?
Tracking Apps for Electronics
Cars have long boasted this feature and software manufacturers now also incorporate anti-theft tracking into tablets, smartphones and other electronics (which is why their popularity suddenly dropped with criminals). These apps allow you to remotely activate the GPS locator of the device, pinpointing its current whereabouts on the map. Since the software is password protected, criminals are unable to disable it. Then all that is left to do is to contact the police to retrieve the item. Until now, the only disadvantage was that this locator app couldn’t protect non-electronic items, but with the arrival of tracking tags this problem has been solved.
GPS Tracker Tags
These tiny plaques are light and easily attached to your keyring, phone, or slipped perfectly into your bag. People often mistake them as novelties that are used for swiftly finding your bearings. The wireless tags have a limited range (between 30 and 100 feet) and are advertised as a tool to point toward items that are lost in your house and not stolen. However, some of them are enhanced with GPS location technology, meaning that if you put it in your bag – and said bag is stolen – you’ll be able to track it down.
The Tile Mate Anything Finder is a perfect example of a multi-function tracker. The pack includes a Bluetooth device that comes with a smartphone app that prompts the tracker to start ringing, so you’ll instantly be able to find its location. But, more importantly, it’s possible to view its current position on Google Maps .
The Pixie tracker pack approaches the matter in a different way. Their tracker can be armed remotely through your phone, at which point the tool starts signaling its position by connecting to the Pixie tracker network. Lastly, there is Smart Tracker, which shows location changes in real time, effectively highlighting the route that the burglar took.
