Laipac Technology, a GPS-based tracking and location services provider headquartered in Ontario, has revealed the StarFinder Aire, the thinnest vehicle tracking solution offered by Laipac.
The StarFinder Aire has been designed for tracking smaller vehicles such as marine craft or two-wheelers. The IP 67-certified, water resistant device offers a highly sensitive GPS receiver that communicates the location coordination using mobile data networks. The GPS coordinates can be transmitted using GPRS, SMS or both. In the SMS mode, the tracking device transmits the coordinates of the vehicle only to a predefined phone number. When the coordinates are sent in the GPRS mode, it can be accessed remotely using the LocationNow website. The users can log in to track the location of their vehicle in real-time.
The StarFinder Aire also offers geofencing capability. This feature enables the user to set up multiple predefined areas and an alert is issued when the vehicle moves out of the location. It can also be set up to issue an alert when the vehicle is driven into a forbidden area. Additionally, the Aire can be used to monitor the behavior of the driver on road. Parents can use it to monitor the location, time and speed at which their children drive their boat or motorcycle.
Featuring two outputs, two inputs along with an analog input, the StarFinder Aire offers a great level of integration. If a theft occurs, the device offers several capabilities thereby allowing the user to disable the vehicle’s starter remotely using the LocationNow interface. The slim, energy-efficient device draws power from the vehicle’s battery and when it is turned off, the tracking device remains active on its own battery.
An accelerometer is featured in the device to issue a notification in the event of an accident. It can be used on water jets, yachts, sailboats and other marine vessels as well.
