This solution helps companies and consumers track their valuable assets wherever they are, monitor their status, protect them from theft and facilitate their recovery if they are stolen, all with the highest degree of security and privacy possible.
Asset Tracking gives people who own and/or manage valuable assets like cars, trucks, trailers, medical or construction equipment the ability to easily track the location of their property and to recovery it if it's stolen.
In this case, we're talking about RecovR, the wireless 2-in-1 car dealer solution for lot management and vehicle theft recovery, launched by Kudelski IoT in February 2021.
Dealers pairs new cars with our wireless tracking device, and from that point on can track its location whenever they need to in a desktop or mobile application. This gives dealers instant access to finding any car on any of their properties, any time they need to. They then sell RecovR to their customers to generate new revenue.
New car buyers will use the same device as a vehicle theft recovery solution if their car is ever stolen, giving them peace of mind that their investment is protected.
The solution is built using GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) location technologies and uses a 4G-LTE modem. It can connect to multiple cellular networks, ensuring global connectivity, and is secured by Kudelski IoT keySTREAM to ensure data confidentiality and consumer privacy.
The solution uses a small wireless locator device that is battery-powered and lasts for up to 5 years. It can be installed in less than a minute, and won't void vehicle warranties like some wired solutions do. From that point on, the dealer can enjoy rich lot management features like search of their entire inventory, location guidance to the desired vehicle, instant inventory and geofencing alerts if a car leaves the lot outside of hours.
After activating their RecovR app via a simple e-mail they receive at the dealer, new car owners are instantly ready to locate their vehicle whenever they wish to, whether they've lost it in a parking lot, are waiting on a tardy teenager, or need to communicate its location to police after it's been stolen. "Lock Location" enables owners to geofence their vehicle and receive quick alerts if their vehicle has been moved from its intended location.
Enable dealerships to locate and manage their entire inventory across lots and locations, granting access only to authorized parties..
Empower car owners to locate their vehicle at any time and share information with police, all while providing strong privacy protections.
