How S7 Trackers Work

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.

Who Uses S7 Trackers?

The installation of the latest S7 trackers in vehicles offers various advantages to a wide range of companies, industries, and individuals.

Vehicle Rental Companies

  • For businesses that rent out large numbers of vehicles, vehicle trackers are an essential tool to track their location and keep them secure. Through implementing the S7 trackers, rental companies will be able to provide their customers with peace of mind due to this added level of safety. The trackers will also be able to help prevent thieves from stealing their vehicles and recover any stolen vehicles more efficiently, thereby reducing any potential financial loss.

High-Value Vehicle Owners

  • Aside from commercial use, Thatcham trackers can also be used for tracking personal vehicles. This is especially useful if it is a high value car as these vehicles are the most at risk of theft. Owners of high-value personal cars will be able to strengthen their vehicles security features while also reducing insurance costs.

Campervan Hire Companies

  • Companies that offer camper van hire services can also reap the advantages of S7 Trackers, which provide enhanced security and reduced insurance expenses. With lower costs than S5 or S5 Plus trackers, S7 trackers are more cost-effective for fleets of high-value vehicles like camper vans.

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 S7 Tracker FAQs

  • What is Thatcham?

    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.

  • Can Thatcham S7 trackers be used for personal vehicles?

    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.

  • 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.

  • What’s the difference between the S5 and S7 trackers, and which is better for me?

    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. If you’re not sure which vehicle tracking device would be best for you, chat to our team and we’ll be happy to advise you.
