World's First Over-The-Counter Internet GPS Tracking System For Cars...Private Eye In A ChipHOUSTON--Feb. 5, 2001--
Houston-based Immobiliser Inc., is introducing the world's first over-the-counter wireless vehicle tracking and control system using the power of the Internet and Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. Texas vehicle owners will be the first to use the new product, called GPS Vision(TM), as the company launches the product in Houston -- the first market in its national rollout.
Vehicle owners from anywhere in the world can track and control their vehicle on the Internet through GPS Vision(TM). The powerful new product uses advanced technology from Motorola(TM) and MCI WorldCom's SkyTel(TM) two-way paging network, as well as new wireless Internet technology from Elite Logistics (OTCBB:ELOG), based in Freeport, Texas.
GPS Vision(TM) has the power to track and control a vehicle with just the click of a mouse. Car owners receive the vehicle's street address location, digital mapping, car speed and direction in seconds via the Internet. For example, parents on vacation in the Bahamas can receive an alarm notification and shut down the operation of their car in Houston when their child is out on a joyride in the family car. Or, if a driver accidentally locks the keys in the car, he or she can remotely unlock the door through an Internet-enabled cell phone, two-way pager or PDA.
Business owners may find this device particularly useful. Owners of service trucks can actually put an alarm sensor on a toolbox door and receive notification when someone makes an unauthorized entry. And for small business insurance cost, GPS Vision(TM) provides fleet owners the ability to shut down the use of their vehicles and equipment after hours, decreasing "worry time" about vehicles being used without proper authorization. Through GPS Vision(TM), an owner could even start a vehicle engine from a distance, even from another state.
With a PDA, two-way pager or e-mail enabled cell phone, car owners can track and control their vehicle while walking down the street. If a vehicle is stolen, for example, owners could use a Palm Pilot(TM) or other Internet-enabled device to send a command to track the vehicle by street location and speed, and then notify the police of the car's exact location.
"GPS Vision(TM) is revolutionizing the auto aftermarket industry by bringing this powerful wireless service to car, truck and fleet owners," said John Banks, CEO of Immobiliser Inc. "This technology gives all vehicle owners with existing vehicle alarms the means to protect and monitor their car via their home phone, cell phone, pager, PDA and e-mail. People can monitor, track and control their car from anywhere in the world -- from Europe to South America and from Kalamazoo to Timbuktu."
According to company officials, the GPS Vision(TM) far exceeds the technological and service limitations of Lojack(TM) and Onstar(TM). This system, which features just three inputs and outputs, is a plug-and-play unit that will work with any make or model vehicle on the market to date. GPS Vision(TM) also is designed to be installed on motorcycles of all models, including those made by Harley-Davidson(R) , through Immobiliser's motorcycle security system called The Immobiliser(TM). The company produces the only patented alarm that fits the original factory wiring of Harley-Davidson(R) motorcycles.
Houston-based E-Power International Inc., the parent company of Immobiliser Inc., is actively marketing the GPS Vision(TM) in the Houston market as part of a pre-launch of its national rollout of the product. Immobiliser has a 10-year track record of providing security systems to motorcycle, car and fleet owners. The company currently exports security products to 31 countries.
