Vehicle security

GPS tracking can play a vital role in the security of your vehicle, especially when paired with a car alarm. If your vehicle has an AVS car alarm installed the two work together. When the car alarm is triggered you receive an SMS alert to your mobile phone and email address – the alert even includes the vehicle’s current street address. This is an important feature as it allows you to respond immediately to an alarm event.

Because AVS GPS Tracking is web based you can use any internet connected device to access your GPS tracking account. If you’re on a mobile device the interface automatically adapts.

Real time GPS tracking also stores the history of where the vehicle has been including speed, length of journey and any stops made. This is great for race or project cars to view the trip history for events. It also makes it a popular option for the family car that has multiple drivers.

Features include:

  • Know the real time location and status of your vehicle 24/7
  • If the vehicle is moving, see what direction it is heading in and how fast
  • Receive an SMS alert to your phone if your AVS alarm is triggered – it includes the vehicle’s current street address with a Google maps link (it doesn’t just show longitude and latitude co-ordinates). Some other brands of car alarms will also be compatible with this feature.
  • The AVS GPS Tracking interface shows if your car alarm is armed or disarmed. Some other brands of car alarms will also be compatible.
  • Optional engine immobilisation via the interface allows you to safely immobilise the vehicle once it reaches a very low speed

*SMS alerts are included in the monthly service fee under a Fair Use Policy. **Please note that the geo-fence feature monitors non-regular use of a vehicle. The Fair Use Policy for SMS alerts does not extend to the use of a geo-fence to monitor regular use of your personal vehicle i.e. setting a geo-fence around the garage of the family car or your workplace.
