Tracker Alert

In addition to the tracking capabilities of Tracker Retrieve, Tracker Alert offers you further peace of mind: it keeps a watchful eye over your parked vehicle. With the latest motion-sensing technology, our vehicle tracking system can activate Tracker’s extensive recovery arsenal if your vehicle moves in an ‘armed’ state.

Tracker Alert is approved by major insurers and motor manufacturers with capabilities in neighbouring countries such as Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique.


How does it work?

  • You will be given a fully automatic Tracker Alert key fob (remote activator) when Tracker Alert is installed in your vehicle.
  • The Tracker Alert unit automatically turns on once the key fob has been removed from the vehicle after you park it.
  • The Tracker Alert system will attempt to establish a connection with the key fob once the vehicle starts moving again. A connection will only be established if the key fob is in the vehicle.
  • If a signal is not received from the key fob after the predetermined time (indicating that you are not in the car), the vehicle tracking system sends an alarm notification to Tracker’s Secure Operating Centre.
  • Tracker’s Secure Operating Centre will then contact you to inquire whether or not you are aware that your vehicle is moving.
  • If you confirm that the movement is unauthorized, your vehicle’s Tracker System will be activated through the normal Tracker procedures and protocols; and the recovery process will start immediately.

    Important Notes

  • Tracker Alert is not an anti-hijacking system – it simply lets you know if your vehicle has been moved without your consent.
  • For the system to be effective it is vital that you never leave the fob in the car and we advise that you don’t attach it to your car keys. Rather, carry it in your pocket, wallet or handbag.
  • Each client is entitled to two free “false alerts” per month – thereafter there will be a charge of R15 per false alert.
