How To Remotely Track Your Vehicle And Assets In Real-Time

02/10/2015

Whether you’re handing your car keys over to your teen or leaving your car in the driveway  over night, you want to know where your vehicle is at all times. After all, you’re the one paying the monthly installments, taking it for an oil change, and giving it a wash. It’s hard to get around a city like Indianapolis without a car. And, when yours is stolen (or not returned home on time by your teen), not only are you worried and stressed, but you also have no way of getting to work and other living essentials.

Honeywell has come up with the perfect solution to ease your worries: geo-fencing products. You create a virtual area for the tracked vehicle or device at setup. When it enters or exits that area, you’ll be notified via text or email immediately.

The Vehicle Tracker

The Vehicle Tracker (TCVT2) is perfect for passenger cars, light trucks, and service vans built after 1996. It notifies you by text or email of many things including vehicle location and location history. You’ll also be able to know if the car goes over the speed limit through programmable speed alerts (so you can discuss smart driving practices with your teen). You can personalize how the car looks in the Total Connect app by uploading an image of the vehicle.

You can easily install the compact and lightweight vehicle tracker by plugging it into your car. It will run vehicle diagnostics and report on GPS location, geo-fencing, and programmable events. These customizable options are monitored and reconfigured remotely using the Honeywell Total Connect app.

The Asset Tracker

For assets such as boats, jet skis, ATVs, trailers RVs, motorcycles, and classic cars, there’s a tracker too. The Honeywell asset tracker (TCAT) can alert you in real-time when any of these items are moved outside the geo-fencing area. This comes in handy if you don’t live close to these assets - especially at a beach or vacation house.

If you have a business that uses heavy machinery, generators, or outdoor inventory, you can use the asset tracker with extended battery. This way you track where they have been used and when. And, if they get lost or stolen, you get notified and can possibly retrieve them.

Recommended for constant powered applications, the asset tracker has an integrated GPS receiver and antenna to facilitate tracking and supports SMS connectivity to communicate alerts. Its internal 650 mAh rechargeable battery lasts up to two months.

Total Connect Remote Services

All these tracking devices can be combined with energy management, interactive security, and video services. As part of your Honeywell Total Connect Remote Services, you can control your security and automation systems and receive important email and video notifications on mobile devices at anytime, from anywhere.
