TruckMinder, a UK-based software and technology company, has used its existing technology to provide an off-the-shelf device which protects tools when left in your vehicle. The secret of the autonomous system lies within the sensors.
The software is programmed to intelligently recognise only the disturbances indicative of an attempted theft – when an attack on the vehicle takes place, a 120db alarm is triggered, with a text message sent to the owner who can respond accordingly. The new pager is GPS orientated and will give you an exact position of your vehicle.
The ToolDefend device doesn’t connect to the main vehicle alarm, and therefore is not deactivated when thieves use traditional methods. ToolDefend can be self-installed and comes supplied with a SIM configured to the tradesperson’s mobile. The owner of the vehicle is responsible for arming and disarming the system.
