GPS Tracking To Tackle Bicycle Theft Statistics
Environmentally friendly, no fuels costs and with obvious health advantages, more people are turning to bicycles as part of their daily transport routine. The downside? As well as bikes numbers increasing, so are reported incidents of bike theft.
Zurich (I-Newswire) September 18, 2012 - Worried about Bike theft? No need with SpyBike Bicycle Trackers
Official Statistics show that a total of 115,147 bicycles were reported stolen during 2010 throughout the UK, more worrying is the fact that researchers calculate the true figure to be well over 500,000 due to the fact that 80% of owners did not report their theft; nowhere is this shocking statistic more prevalent than in our Major Cities and University Towns.
For years, Bike locks have been the only line of defence against the all too common bike thief, yet armed with the right equipment, even the so called quality locks merely delay the inevitable theft for a few seconds.
As if this news is not disheartening enough, to dampen the spirit of the cyclist further, once a bike is stolen, its lock destroyed and the incident reported to the police, chances of retrieving the property again are extremely slim; in fact, less than a 10% chance according to crime statistics.
SpyBike increase the Stakes
Until recently, this was yet another injustice the frustrated Cyclist was forced to endure ... but no more, thanks to SpyBike and their cutting edge GPS technology: The time to fight back is here! Not only will SpyBikes advanced technology enable us to be re-united with the stolen bicycle, but also enable the authorities to track and catch the deplorable criminal in the act, leaving the streets clear for the otherwise persecuted cyclist.
Unlike other existing GPS tracking devices, thanks to Micro Technology and cutting edge Software, SpyBike Trackers are extremely small and energy efficient, allowing the devices to be installed covertly within components integral to a new or existing bicycle, currently available in three versions: either hidden in the seat post, steering column or concealed within a clamp-on tail light.
Complete with a movement sensor and SIM card, a stolen bicycles SpyBike unit activates its GPS signal automatically if moved without permission, the unit also alerts the owner of the activity by sending an SMS direct to an existing Cellphone. Once active, the SpyBike unit immediately starts real-time tracking providing accurate coordinates accessible (surprisingly on a free of charge basis unlike other GPS providers) through the supplier's website (www.spybike-gps.com).
Each product is equipped with an intelligent standby: so if a stolen bike is taken to a location where there is no GPS reception (for example, in a basement) the transmitter shuts off automatically to save power and extend battery life. This feature enables a long, reliable traceability for up to 8 months before the battery needs recharging (Depending on the setting and model and of course battery state before the theft). If the GPS signal is indeed lost, another remarkable function SpyBike have built into their unit, is that the unit reverts to GSM network (Global System for Mobile communications), this will allow the owner to text the unit requesting its current location, the coordinates of which will be triangulated to provide an area approximation that will prepare the authorities to be ready as soon as the once dormant signal is reactivated and the unit again immediately reports its current GPS location (by SMS and Internet connection).
Tested and endorsed by International Police Authorities, the prospect of retrieving your bike back are increased dramatically by SpyBikes trailblazing and innovative range of tracking and security devices. "I wish I could have drawn on the benefits of a GPS system," says Michael P., who recently became a theft statistic himself when his top of the range Mountain Bike was stolen from the basement of his home. "The theft of course was immediately reported to the police, but the chances of getting my Bike returned were really bad."
Not sitting back and accepting the theft as just another statistic, Michael decided to go on the offensive by channeling his own experience into developing the SpyBike Brand, a brand he now sells worldwide. "We clearly see that the SpyBike range offers the best price-performance ratio in the marketplace today. The devices are affordable, reduce insurance costs and in terms of functionality and energy efficiency, are more than just a few steps ahead. "
In addition to the battery-powered units developed for bicycles, SpyBike also offer solutions for a seemingly limitless scope of solutions for other applications, including: Motorcycles, Cars, Caravans, Trailers ... even Construction Machinery or Fleet Services.
