If you live in a big city, you’ve probably had the misfortune of having something stolen. Maybe thieves stole your bike, motorbike, car or backpack.
Whatever the object, it sucks. But this week cult of mac gift can help you in disaster. Invoxia, an award-winning designer of tracking devices, is giving away three lucky winners its cellular GPS tracker and a one-year subscription to the 4G networks that allow the device to work its magic.
If you constantly misplace your bag or worry about your bike being stolen, be sure to participate in our giveaway.
Invoxia Cellular GPS Tracker
The sleek $129 Invoxia cellular GPS tracker is housed in a black aluminum case with a leather lanyard. It will follow the people you love and your vehicles. It’s light and discreet (it weighs 30 grams and is only 4 inches long), which makes it easy to place anywhere.
Unlike Bluetooth trackers like Apple’s AirTags, which need an iPhone nearby to locate your missing item, Invoxia’s standalone cellular GPS tracker has unlimited range. Since it uses 4G cellular networks, it works virtually anywhere to easily track people and assets.
The GPS Tracker includes a SIM card and comes with a one-year subscription to 4G networks (LTE Cat-M1). After the initial subscription ends, you will be billed $29.90 per year. Invoxia is among the first to launch a low-cost tracker using this affordable technology: regular GSM trackers have subscription fees of up to $20 per month and hidden activation fees.
The Invoxia GPS Tracker has a long battery life that lasts up to seven weeks depending on various factors. And in its power saving mode, it will last up to four months. The 250 mAh rechargeable battery charges in 90 minutes with the included micro-USB cable.
The GPS Tracker is compatible with IFTTT (short for If This Then That), an automation platform that helps devices, services and apps work well together. For example, you can set up rules to set the house alarm when you leave your house with the tracker or open the garage door when you enter your driveway. The options are endless.
Features of Invoxia’s free iOS and Android GPS app
- Proximity Radar: The hot/cold proximity radar makes it easier for you to find the device within a few feet.
- GPS tracking: The device sends its position every five, 10 or 30 minutes while moving.
- Anti-theft alerts: Receive real-time notifications when an item moves suspiciously.
- History: See the precise route of the cellular GPS tracker at any time.
- Geofencing Alert: Set geofencing areas to be notified when the tracker enters or exits the security zone.
Track and protect your vehicle
In the United States, a car theft occurs every three minutes. A motorcycle is stolen every 11 minutes. To counter this, the Invoxia tracker’s anti-theft alerts can be triggered when something moves or by slight vibrations caused by things like tampering with the lock.
To use it, simply place the Invoxia GPS tracker in the glove box or trunk of your vehicle. In case of movement, you will be the first informed. If you have a scooter or motorcycle, place the tracker in the top case or in the trunk of the seat.
You can get creative with the placement of your tracker, but don’t place it somewhere visible. Invoxia offers advice on where to place your tracker for optimal security.
Invoxia also publishes a blog full of successful vehicle recoveries. One person even found his parachute lost in flight.
Track and protect your loved ones
The Invoxia GPS Tracker can also track your children or your senior parents. You can configure it to receive notifications when children arrive or leave defined predefined areas. If you have elderly parents, you will be able to determine specific areas and be notified of any unusual routes.
The tracker is also equipped with an alert button. This way, the person can send an alert with their location from anywhere in the United States, at any time.
Simply slip the Invoxia GPS Tracker into the inside pockets of a bag or the lining of a coat for instant peace of mind.
