The Visionaire unit can be set up to send the owner instant alerts via email or text - immediately letting them know if the vehicle is on the move or is being tampered with. The unit can also be configured to notify of assistance request alerts (via the optional ‘panic button’), speed violations, interruption of power supply, loss/blockage of GPS signal, low battery, bonnet open. Remote immobilisation and geofencing are also an options. Unlike other tracking devices, there are very low subscription costs once you’ve bought the Visionaire unit.
* Subject to network and roaming charges.
A selection of extra information can also be viewed; for example, archived location lists, journey routes, distances covered, key on and off times, daily (and total) engine running hours, miles travelled and travelling speeds. If the vehicle is in use at the time of accessing the system, it can be seen moving across the screen in real time. Most importantly, the device can alert the owner whether the vehicle moves. So, even if the vehicle is being hotwired or stolen using its own keys, the owner can still receive alerts and continue to track its exact movements. (Home Office figures reveal that 85% of stolenvehicles are now stolen using the vehicle’s ownkeys)
