In spite of greatly improved security devices, around 1,200 caravans were stolen in the UK last year and it is shocking reminders like this that show us just how important is it to have the right caravan insurance in place. To find out how you can help to prevent your caravan from being stolen
So what if the thief manages to bypass your locks and haul your trailer down the road? It would be nice to at least be able to find your trailer or maybe be notified that your trailer is moving and your not pulling it. This brings up the GPS technology. Again as with the locks, there are several different approaches to using GPS. The major draw back to using ordinary GPS is that the receiver needs line of site to see the satellite. Some companies provide an installation whereby they run a wire covertly through the trailer to an antenna on the roof. The next problem for GPS units is that they need power to work. If your trailer is parked in a storage lot and you don’t have access to electricity the GPS battery will run down in a few weeks and you loose your protection.
Fyrdraca trackers use a technology called assisted GPS that uses a combination of mobile phone and GPS. This is great! It allows the unit to be inside your Caravan or on your trailer and the tracker can be inside a building and work. If it is in a building, it does not have to be close to a mobile tower to get a good signal. Basically the unit works either by GPS or gsm mobile phone triangulation.
