    Tow Away Alerts

    If the vehicle ignition is off and the tracker detects unauthorised movement or towing away, the system will generate an alert. This feature is exclusively available in CobraTrak Plus, Cobra ADR and CobraTrak 5 system.

    Remote Immobilisation

    CobraTrak 5 takes vehicle security a notch higher, with remote ignition locking and immobilisation. This enables the police to successfully immobilise a vehicle in case it gets stolen, and prevents the engine from being restarted again. This tracking system also uses driver identification technology, which detects theft even if the vehicle keys have been stolen.

    Automatic Driver Recognition

    Authenticated drivers are given pocket size driver identification cards, and the system arms itself as soon as the driver leaves the vehicle. If the vehicle is started or moved without the identification card, an alert is sent to Cobra’s secure operating centre reporting the possibility of a theft.

    Motion Sensing

    If the ignition is turned off and the vehicle is towed away, the system generates an alert to protect against theft.

    Tamper Alert

    Tampering to the vehicle battery or damage to the system wiring generates an automatic alert in CobraTrak Plus and CobraTrak 5 trackers.

    GSM Jammers

    Thieves may also use GSM jammers to stop the GSM signal from detecting the location of the vehicle. In case such jamming devices are used, an alert is generated by the CobraTrak system to alert the owner and the police authorities.

    Geofencing

    Alerts are sent as soon as the vehicle enters or leaves a designated area. This is particularly useful for managing a fleet of vehicles. (Only applicable to Cobra Web integration, which will be available in June 2016)
