Vehicle tracking and Theft Prevention
Unfortunately, we now live in a world where carjacking has become a normality again. This has been a trend in terrorism worldwide in the past number of months. However, in Ireland, we have thankfully escaped such tragedies. Despite this, we have seen smaller scale events take place at a local level. The most recent saw the attempted stabbing and successful carjacking of a taxi man in Cabra, Dublin. What was assumed to be a regular fare, resulted in two men arrested for theft and assault – and a taxi man lucky to escape with his life.
The taxi trade depends on driver’s ability to trust those entering their vehicle. The reality of that is that impossible to know who those people are – or their intentions. The introduction of revolutionary services such as Halo and My Taxi has added more security to the industry. I know who my driver is, they know who I am. I have his details, they have mine. The app tracks me on GPS, the driver has the same ability.
However, in this industry (among others), it is essential to take out further precautionary measures. The role of technology, in particular the internet of things, in security has completely changed dynamics. Here at Autokey, we have embraced this change. We are committed to investing into technology to provide hi-tech vehicle security solutions. We have developed a wide range of security devices encompassing current technology trends in line with consumer wants and needs. In particular, we have designed a security strategy to put a stop to car hijacking – The DD5.
How It Works
Another risky route taken by car thieves is to break into the vehicle owner’s home, steal the keys and make off with the car. With the DD5, car keys alone will not start the ignition of the car. In the case where the vehicle owner has lost his/her tag, a unique identification number is provided at the point of purchase. This reveals a secret number to the customer. From here, starting and cutting the ignition in the order of numbers given will override the system. Thus, giving the driver access to a fully mobile vehicle.
One of a Kind
The DD5 is the only product of its kind on the market. Using current technology trends to combat current theft trends is the mindset we have. Industries, such as transport and delivery, are more susceptible to car theft and hijacking. The DD5 is a state of the art, affordable way to not only keep you on the road, but to keep you safe.
