Spymaster had a very successful boat show earlier in the year where we were demonstrating the Robstep M1 Personal Transporter, our range of child and adult hovercraft's and the Orca Submarine. The Orca Submarine is a whole new concept in underwater transportation that operates like a jet plane under the water, which means that it can turn, bank, ascend and decend just like a fish without the need for time consuming inflation and deflation of ballast. As well as that they can dive to anything from 600m to 2000m, depending on the model. Below is a video of one of our Directors being interviewed for www.implausibleblog.com who are a very cool social media visual experience channel.
The sale of trackers at Spymaster has increased dramatically over the last 12 months. It’s even taken us by surprise. Why is this?
Well to start with tracking devices have become much more accessible to ordinary members of the public. The number of different trackers available has increased. There are now personal trackers, car trackers, heavy duty asset trackers (For heavy machinery) and extended life high capacity trackers. Another issue is price. The prices have come down drastically.
We are often asked why our trackers are a bit higher in price than some of our competitors. There is a simple reason for that. Our competitors sell trackers with 100 positions built in. After that you have to pay extra to acquire more capacity. All of our trackers come with 12 months of unlimited positions included. This gives you constant contact over 12 months in 122 different countries and with NO ROAMING CHARGES.
Now let’s look at the products themselves. Our CAT IV (Product code CATIV) is a personal tracker with built in “panic” alert. If the user is ever in trouble he simply hits the “Panic” button and everyone monitoring him will know where he/she is and that they need assistance. This is pretty reassuring and at a price of £416.66 (Plus VAT within the EU) this is a reasonable price to pay for the peace of mind that this item brings you, and your family. This item is particularly favoured by the families of youngsters go on Gap Year trips to Lord knows where!
Then we have the Covert Asset Tracker 5 (Product code CATV). This unit comes with an exceptionally strong magnet that you can just place under the bumper of any vehicle. This unit is often used by owners of fleet vehicles to check on their whereabouts and, dare I say it, parents to check on the whereabouts of their teenage children. At £500.00 (Plus VAT within the EU) this again can save companies thousands of pounds, and parent’s masses of anxiety.
The heavy duty big brother is our Covert Asset Tracker VI (Product code CATVI) with 2 hugely powerful magnets this is a unit that you will never lose. Generally used by companies to track their heavy equipment and machinery throughout the world.
All of these devices enable you to monitor, and instruct, the tracker from your mobile phone and computer. Not only will you receive real-time positions but you can also get a “Snail trail” showing you where the tracker has been. You can set up a Geometric fence from your phone, and adjust the number of “Positions” sent to you, check on the battery life, put the tracker to “Sleep” and carry out virtually every function necessary to keep you in full control of your unit.
For all of these reasons trackers are becoming mainstream products not only in the commercial world but the domestic world as well.
