Parking Lot Safety Tips

We know it can be difficult to get all of your errands and shopping done during daylight hours, which oftentimes means you’re walking to and from your car in the dark. Parking lots can be a bit scary at night so we want to make sure you’re using the correct precautions, as well as point out some T3 features you may not know about.

  • According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 14% of all vehicle collisions resulting in damage happen in parking lots, so be aware of other drivers.
  • Be on the lookout for pedestrians.
  • Avoid parking in dark, secluded areas.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. If you see something suspicious, go back into the store you just left and ask for help.
  • Always lock your car doors as soon as you get in.
  • If you are going to multiple stores, be sure to keep shopping bags and other valuables out of site. You don’t want to make your car look more appealing to thieves.

When going from place to place, it can sometimes be difficult to remember exactly where you parked. By installing a T3 Tracker on your vehicle, you can find the exact location of your car with a tap on the app. You’ll never have to wander through the parking lot looking for your car again.

The T3 will also protect your car by notifying you immediately if your car makes an unauthorized movement or a factory installed alarm is triggered. This will give you a chance to contact 911 as soon as possible with the gps coordinates of your vehicle and the direction it is traveling.

Other helpful features of the T3:

  • You can check the location, speed, and direction of your vehicle anytime you want.
  • In the event of an emergency, you can contact the 911 operator closest to your vehicle even if you’re thousands of miles away.
  • You can unlock your doors with a simple text.
  • There is no activation fee, no contracts, and no cancellation fees.
  • The T3 offers complete privacy. With your secret pin you have complete control over your account. All account information is sent via text between the T3 and your cell phone, but only when you request it. It is never stored or sent via the internet.

Follow these tips to keep yourself, and your vehicle safe. For more information on the T3 and its capabilities, visit our website, https://www.911tracker.com/.

TECH TIP: An authorized emergency contact can call the T3 and the T3 will answer their call.  The contact can have T3 make the 3-party call to 911 to explain the emergency.

The T3- More Than Just An Anti-theft Device

On top of being a one of a kind anti-theft device, the T3 Tracker can also help you through a number of everyday situations. It will simplify your life, reduce stress, and give you peace of mind for less than $10 per month.

Here are some ways that the T3 can help in everyday situations:

-With the T3 you can keep tabs on your teenage drivers or aging parents without distracting them with a call or text. The device allows the owner to check the vehicle’s location and direction.

-It can be difficult to time dinner so it is ready when your partner gets home from work, especially when traffic is involved. With the T3 you can check on their progress without interrupting their concentration.

-When you drop your car off at the shop to get serviced, they usually give you an estimate of how long it will take- but things can happen and times can change. With the T3 you can see when the technician does a road test which usually means your car will be done soon. This way you can be productive while you’re waiting without wasting time.

-Do you have a teenager learning how to drive? If you’re worried about them taking the car out without permission or while you’re not at home, the T3 allows you to disable the starter. This way you don’t have to worry.

-Have you ever locked your keys in the car? It can be difficult to get AAA or other help immediately. With the T3, you can open your doors in just seconds.

-If you have a car that doesn’t get driven very often, you may worry about the battery running low. Thankfully with the T3, it won’t be a surprise as you’ll get a notification telling you when the battery is low.

-It can be worrisome when older relatives get in the car after a holiday dinner and have a long drive home in the dark. With a T3 installed on their vehicle you’ll be able to track their progress and see that their car has arrived home safely. You get peace of mind without bothering them with a phone call.

-Do you have family members taking a road trip? While they’re away, track their progress with the T3.

-AND — T3 is ready 24/7 to protect you, your family members, and your vehicle if there is an emergency. If your vehicle is stolen, moves without authorization, or is involved in an accident, T3 notifies you and your emergency contacts and can connect you directly to the 911-Operator located nearest the vehicle.

With the T3 you can not only protect your car from theft, but also keep track of your vehicle and loved ones in a safe, non-intrusive way. For more information on the T3 visit our website.

TECH TIP: The T3 owner can add, change, or delete the phone numbers for their authorized emergency contacts at anytime.

 

KEEP YOUR RV SAFE FROM THEFT

Having an RV allows you to hit the open road whenever you want while having all the added comforts and conveniences of home. But because you travel with many of your belongings, it is important to take precautions to secure your RV. Here are a few tips to help keep your RV safe from theft.

  1. PARK SMART.  Be careful where you choose to park your RV. When choosing an RV park, make sure it has nightly patrols and is well lit.  And if you have to park your RV in a parking lot or amusement park, it should be in a highly visible area near security personnel. So, if you are away from your RV, someone else has an eye on it.
  2. LOCK IT UP.  This might seem pretty obvious, but often times people run for a quick errand and forget to lock their RV. If it is locked, it will discourage thieves from making your RV a target.
  3. OUT OF SIGHT.  Don’t leave expensive items in plain sight. Items that are of higher value like Ipads and other electronic devices should be stowed away and locked up when you are not using them.
  4. LIGHTS ON. If you are away from your RV at night, keep Interior lights on.  Lights left on inside the RV will keep criminals guessing if someone is home. Also, exterior motion detectors are a good way to discourage thieves.
  5. INSTALL A T3 Vehicle Security System. Experts advise that the only way your RV will be protected is for owners to install an aftermarket engine immobilizer and a GPS tracking device like The T3 Vehicle Security System. With the 911Tracker T3 Vehicle Recovery System, you are alerted the moment that your RV has unauthorized movement or a pre-installed vehicle alarm goes off. The alert will show you the GPS location, speed, and direction that your RV is traveling, and you can easily connect to the 911-Operator closest to your RV, allowing you to speak directly to police within seconds of the emergency.  No call center is used – saving you time and money.  Saving valuable time can save you, your family, your RV and your belongings.  LoJack® doesn’t do this.  OnStar® doesn’t do this.  No other anti-theft system can do this.

Information Sharing – not here, don’t worry

A recent study from Pew’s Director of Internet, Science and Technology revealed that when it comes to decisions about our privacy and digital lives, many people are “wary, worried and annoyed.” So we felt it was the perfect opportunity to remind our customers that 911Tracker places privacy as a top priority. Which is why we designed every part of the 911Tracker system to ensure that the T3 owner and only the owner has complete control and operation of the Tracker.

information sharing with 911Tracker you are protected!

 You may wonder…

Can anyone see the locations where I have been? No. The T3 only sends location by text message to only the owner’s mobile phone. The T3 does not send location information to any website or Internet server. The T3 does not store previous locations, and since no information is ever held no government agency or police can ever receive location information.

How does the T3 prevent others from receiving the T3 location? In order to request location from the T3, the owner must know the phone number of the T3 and the owner must enter their own 5-digit PIN number and send the correct command. If the owner sends a text message with both exact numbers then the T3 will respond to the owner’s phone – all other attempts will be ignored by the T3.

Can a hacker cause the T3 to malfunction? No. T3 has numerous safeguards to protect against hackers: T3 cellular connection only uses text messages and does not connect to the Internet. T3 does not have Bluetooth, so there is no way to receive a hacker’s message. T3 does not have WiFi, so no way to receive a hacker’s message. T3 does not have a wireless keyfob, so no way to receive a hacker’s message. T3 can only have its internal program changed by physically plugging a special factory cable into the T3, so there is no way for a hacker to wirelessly change the internal T3 program. Each T3 has a unique phone number and that number is only provided to the T3 owner when they subscribe to 911Tracker Service. No one else has access to that phone number. The T3 will only operate if it has the SIM card that 911Tracker installs at the factory. If a hacker tried to substitute their own SIM card in the T3, the T3 will not function at all. The T3 owner creates their own 5-digit PIN number and T3 will only listen to a text message if the message has that exact PIN.

As you can see by choosing 911Tracker as your Vehicle Security Device you can feel safe and secure. Head over to our website to see our latest specials!

Working Together To Keep Families Safe

 

blogger Connect

At 911Tracker we are looking for bloggers to help us spread the word about our vehicle tracking device that keeps you and your family safe while on the road or even when your vehicle is parked.

We think that a build in car security system will work as a deterrent, but in most cases when it really counts we will be disappointed. Car alarms do not draw the attention the way they used to. Most of the time we find it more annoying than anything else. Nearly half of the vehicles (with the normal car alarm) stolen are never recovered, and those recovered are almost always damaged or completely destroyed.  This is the reason that purchasing a car tracking device like the 911Tracker benefits car owners by giving them peace of mind that their car is really secure.

Here is just a few of the many benefits of owning the 911Tracker Device….

* Gives you the location of your vehicle allowing you to recover it

* Saves you money because it lowers your car insurance

* If you parked your car for a period of time you will receive notification if your vehicle is moved. This is perfect for when parking the airport, auto body shop or valet.

* When 911 has been notified your tracker will give the current latitude/longitude, speed and where the vehicle is heading and is detected by E-911. The operator can see a map of where the car is and is often more precise than E-911.

* The 911Tracker has a back up battery so if the thief disconnects the battery you are still protected

We spend thousands of dollars on the vehicles we drive, why wouldn’t we want to protect them just as we do our homes?  Tracking devices are highly-effective in protecting against theft and hijacking, and for assisting in the recovery of your stolen vehicle. To learn more about the 911Tracker and how we are making a difference head to our website.

We want to share the facts with as many families as possible, and this is where you come in…. Interested and qualified bloggers will receive a T3 Device, FREE activation & Shipping plus a 3 month subscription service worth over $300.

If you have interest in sharing the 911Tracker with your community please fill out the blogger form provided. Our goal is help families to stay as safe as possible whether you are traveling on a roadtrip or happily at home. To learn more about our device and other ways we help families and individuals head over to our website and blog.
