When a trigger event, such as an illegal movement, tamper, area, low battery or power-loss alarm is received from your tracking device we systematically process your four emergency contact numbers, via SMS, phone calls or when required email. If a false alarm is suspected you are prompted to send alarm reset SMS responses. 


If reporting a theft "after the event" you call us on +44 (0) 1329 663812. We record details and make the required connections to your tracking device. You then contact the police to obtain a CRN Crime Reference Number.


Automatrics manage find operations for you. On connection with the tracking device we will try to source an accurate GPS fix to direct the police to the location. However, more often these days a significant number of stolen assets are deliberately hidden from GPS satellite view. In these situations, we immediately deploy a radio signal finder supplied by Automatrics, NaVCIS or other law enforcement. Finders use specialised radio direction tracking technology with an accuracy of less than one metre to locate your stolen asset. Once located either the police or our own personnel will stand guard over the protected asset until it can be safely recovered. You can choose a police recovery, (fee's may apply) or alternatively you can arrange your own recovery.  

If you wish to recover your stolen or lost asset and keep hold of it,  then this is a good reason to purchase our system.


Insurance will cover theft in most circumstances, but there are exceptions,  for example if  the keys are left in an unlocked vehicle,  thousands of people do this simply without realising such as, defrosting windscreens whilst they stay in the house.



Also a claim for theft cannot be blamed on a third party,  it is a full policy holder responsible claim and the entire value goes on their insurance claim profile to be shared with other insurance companies. This leaves a somewhat significant black mark where premiums will vastly increase for a period of up to 5 years. No claims protection will not prevent insurance cost increase as this system will only discount premiums, if the premium doubles or trebles as a consequence of a theft claim then all policy holders will pay significantly more. 

Yes, our systems operate in all countries that support the GPRS / SMS/ GSM mobile communication networks. Unlike some competitors our SIM cards are automatically enabled for roaming from the point of purchase as part of our standard service. Should a radio find operation be required abroad this is co-ordinated and managed by our company without any additional cost to clients.


UK based assets are automatically covered for trips abroad. But customers who wish to protect assets that are based outside the UK should choose the  "Based Outside the UK" purchase option to ensure their long term SIM card roaming coverage need is applied.
