EziTrak® was instrumental in the recovery of an excavator recently taken from a Sydney depot. The excavator was stored at a depot in south-west Sydney when it’s owner was notified via the EziTrak® unit installed in it that it had been moved without permission. EziTrak® notifies the vehicle owner within seconds if the vehicle is started, tampered with or moved without EziTrak® first being disarmed. Using the GPS real-time mapping function on EziTrak®, SAF Enterprises Pty Ltd were able to locate the vehicle and help in it’s recovery. SAF Enterprises Pty Ltd specialise in the supply, installation and support of tracking systems for all types of vehicles. The owner of the excavator was more than satisfied that EziTrak® and SAF Enterprises Pty Ltd had been able to locate and recover this expensive piece of machinery quickly.
In January 2011, Sydney-based JR Electrical had an excavator stolen from a locked yard. Fortunately for JR Electrical, the excavator was fitted with an EziTrak® GPS Security & Tracking System. Using the GPRS in the EziTrak®, the smart people at Rojone (who manufacture EziTrak®) were able to track the missing excavator via online real-time mapping. Many months passed with no activity from the excavator. JR Electrical was eventually paid out by their insurer for the excavator but not the trailer that was attached to it. Even with the insurance money, JR Electrical were still out of pocket and inconvenienced with a significant impact on their business. Then in July, 6 months after it had been stolen, the excavator made contact! As soon as the ignition on the excavator was turned on, the EziTrak® was automatically re-activated, pinged the server and it’s current location shown. It appeared on the EziTrak® live tracking system as being north of Sydney near Port Macquarie. The police were contacted who immediately sent a patrol car to the location and identified the excavator as stolen and belonging to JR Electrical. So 6 months after the theft, EziTrak® helped JR Electrical get their excavator back and making money again for their business.
