The S7 Tracker, approved by Thatcham, is an advanced tracking device designed to enhance vehicle security and safety. Its key features include:
24/7 Tracking and Monitoring: Using GPS and GSM technology, the S7 Tracker allows fleet managers and vehicle owners to monitor their vehicles’ locations around the clock. This real-time data is also accessible to 24/7 monitoring centres, ensuring immediate alerts and responses in case of theft.
Tow and Tamper Alerts: Equipped with motion detection technology, the S7 Tracker immediately notifies owners and authorised personnel in the event of unauthorised movement, facilitating prompt action. If the vehicle tracker is tampered with by would-be thieves, this also triggers an instant alert to the monitoring centre for swift intervention.
Mobile App Compatibility: The tracker integrates seamlessly with Crystal Ball’s mobile app, available for iOS and Android. This user-friendly app provides a comprehensive dashboard for monitoring vehicle information and journey history.
Discreet Installation and Robust Technology: The S7 Tracker is discreetly installed in vehicles to evade detection by thieves. We offer free nationwide installation to ensure that the vehicle tracking system is correctly set up and ready to use.
Thanks to its many advanced features, vehicle owners will be able to experience a range of benefits from installing the S7 vehicle trackers.
Crystal Ball’s Thatcham Cat 7 trackers are designed to provide a high level of security for your vehicle fleet. The tracker uses GPS/GLONASS, GPRS, and GSM technology to ensure precise location tracking, thereby reducing the risk of vehicle theft.
Using Thatcham Category S7 Trackers can also result in lower insurance premium costs. All Thatcham trackers, including the S7, are approved by all major insurance providers in the UK. With the additional security it provides, using the S7 tracker will reduce the chances of theft. This then means insurance providers will be more willing to offer lower premium costs as there is also a reduced chance that they will have to pay out for a total loss claim.
Alongside its location tracking capabilities, the S7 tracking device also includes a tamper alert powered by its motion detection technology. This will notify the vehicle owner and monitoring centre regarding any attempts to move the vehicle or interfere with the tracker, regardless of whether the vehicle is on.
With instant notifications being sent to the monitoring centre and vehicle owner in the case of theft, it’s easier for police forces to intervene. The GPS tracking device allows the recovery team to precisely pinpoint the vehicle’s location so it can be secured and returned to you.
As a Thatcham Approved tracker, the S7 includes several innovative security features that are designed to strengthen and maintain vehicle safety.
By installing Crystal Ball’s Cat 7 trackers, fleet managers and vehicle owners will gain 24/7 access to their vehicles’ location via the tracker’s GPS and GSM technology. This data will also be available to 24/7 monitoring centres which will be ready to immediately send alerts in the event of a theft.
The Thatcham Cat 7 tracker also features a Tow & Tamper alert which uses motion detection technology. If any thieves attempt to steal the vehicle without turning it on, owners and other authorised personnel still receive an automatic alert regarding this which will enable a swift response.
Once the trackers have been fitted into your vehicles, you’ll be able to connect it with Crystal Ball’s intuitive tracking app, which is compatible for use with both iOS and Android operating systems. The app features an easy-to-use dashboard which displays all essential vehicle information at a glance. Users will also be able to view historical reports containing data on previous journeys, which can aid in route optimisation and understanding driver behaviour.
The installation of the latest S7 trackers in vehicles offers various advantages to a wide range of companies, industries, and individuals.
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. Their Polite and friendly customer service has always made us feel happy to renew our contracts, as well as add new ones throughout the years.
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.
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, also known as the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre, is an independent organisation that is dedicated to the maintenance and development of road vehicle safety in the UK. Established in 1969, Thatcham aims to increase vehicle safety and security while reducing the cost of insurance premiums. To achieve this, Thatcham tests, categorises, and approves vehicle trackers submitted by manufacturers, using strict criteria to ensure they are of the highest quality. It’s important to note that Thatcham trackers are not produced by Thatcham themselves but are approved by the organisation according to their stringent safety and security criteria. Here at Crystal Ball, all our insurance-approved vehicle trackers have been certified by Thatcham.
Yes, Thatcham-approved S7 trackers can be installed and used for your personal vehicles. The high level of security these trackers provide, alongside their relative affordability, makes them an excellent additional security measure for both mid-range and high value personal vehicles.
If you want to protect your vehicle from theft or vandalism, the S7 tracker is a robust and cost-effective solution.
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.
The category S7 has fewer features than the S5, offering a more budget-friendly solution. While both models offer advanced tracking technology, tow and tamper alerts, connectivity to a 24/7 monitoring station, and an easy-to-use free smartphone app, the key difference is that the S5 has the additional feature of automatic driver recognition technology. This means that if a driver operates the vehicle without presenting their authorised driver ID tag, an instant alert will be sent to the owner and the vehicle monitoring centre.
While both the S5 and S7 trackers are insurance-approved, the choice between the two models will depend on your individual needs and budget. The Thatcham S7 tracker costs less as it has fewer features, while the S5 adds a level of extra protection through the unauthorised driver alert feature.
