How S5 Trackers Work

The tracking device, which uses GPS technology, is covertly fitted into the vehicle and provides real-time data on its current location, ignition status, battery voltage level, and travel duration. You’re able to keep track of this data using the compatible mobile app included in the vehicle tracking system.

The S5 tracker is the ideal tracking system for individuals with high-value vehicles and companies that use critical vehicle fleets and are looking to prevent theft and losses. Its high level security features are designed to significantly increase the chances of recovering a stolen vehicle, helping to provide the highest level of security for your fleet.

Ensure your vehicles are kept safe and secure with the S5’s sophisticated Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) system. With alerts sent to your phone whenever your vehicle is moved without permission, you can rest easy knowing your vehicles are safe from any security breaches.

Our user-friendly mobile app makes monitoring your vehicle or entire fleet much easier, with an intuitive dashboard that displays everything you need to know about your vehicles and their movements. With this tracker, you can monitor your fleet’s journeys and optimise its performance while ensuring their safety.

What our clients say

Danielle Coletti

Director, MEC Security

As a customer of Crystal Ball for 10 years we can always rely on their customer service and expertise for our tracking needs. We have used them for a variety of services and are always impressed with their systems, which are also very user friendly.

James Sherratt

Fleet Manager, MSL Vehicle Solutions

I decided to transfer our fleet over to CB and it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. Their team are superb to deal with, in the current climate with vehicle utilisation being so high I was apprehensive about the task of getting everything switched over, but the team have made this as easy and flexible as possible. The technology they offer is far superior to our previous provider. If you are considering changing your provider, I would certainly recommend speaking to the team at Crystal Ball.

Steve Potter

Transport Manager, ThyssenKrupp

Our main reasons for employing tracking were the traceability issues, keeping an eye on deliveries and the security factors. But Crystal Ball has given us so much more than that. We’ve made savings everywhere, and I wouldn’t want to run this fleet without it now.

Thatcham S5 Tracker FAQs

  • What is the S5 tracker?

    Thatcham, also known as the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre, is responsible for measuring and categorising the level of vehicle security a tracking system offers. The ‘S5’ is an indicator of the trackers Thatcham classification. All Thatcham approved tracking systems are designed to meet each Thatcham Category’s specific criteria before installation.

  • Is there a difference between the S5+ and S5 tracker?

    One of the key differences between the S5+ and S5 is that remote immobilisation is now an optional feature in the S5 tracking system, ideal for those with a smaller budget but are still looking to secure their vehicle fleet. Your driver ID card can now also be kept on your keys for more convenience.

  • What is Automatic Driver Recognition?

    Automatic Driver Recognition, or ADR, is an added security feature that ensures no unauthorised personnel can access your vehicle. Each designated driver will keep a tag on their person. If the car is moved without one of these security tags in close proximity, the tracker will automatically send out an alert.

  • What’s the difference between the S5 and S7 trackers?

    As the very first Thatcham Category, the S7 has significantly fewer features than the S5. The S7 trackers are not hardwired into the vehicle but instead are simply battery powered. The tracker is also only accurate within a few hundred yards, communicating via its RF frequency. If you’re looking for a reliable and high security tracking system, we highly recommend installing the S5 tracker.
