It’s more than twice that in some areas. But even if insurance covers a theft, the compensation does little to console someone who has lost the time, pride and memories often attached to a vintage automobile.
Fortunately, today’s technology makes possible vehicle security systems like the ESCORT Entourage CIS powered by Blackline GPS.
The Entourage disarms when your special key fob is present and arms when you leave. If Entourage CIS detects tampering while you are away, or your vehicle is leaving its automatically-created GPS security perimeter, it instantly alerts you through text message and e-mail.
If you need to share the information with others, you can do that, too. Advanced sharing technology allows you to share your vehicle’s location and security features with people you know. Plus, you can track your vehicle’s precise location from your private, web-based Network Account, Blackberry smartphone, or browser-enabled mobile phone, all in real-time.
Your private web-based Network Account allows you to set all your security preferences – and change them at any time. Select your security parameters, choose icons for your multiple devices, check your vehicle’s speed and direction on interactive maps, and even see where your vehicle has been in the previous six months.
If your vehicle is stolen, you’ll be notified both by text message and a phone call from a real person. A subscription plan is required. Plans are available by the month ($14.95) or by the year ($179.95). There is an activation fee, but no cancellation fee.
The Entourage CIS system is priced at just under $400 and can be easily installed by any professional automotive dealer, automotive installer or leading automotive service chain. It comes with a quick start guide, one MyPass key fob, and a complete hardware kit.
A portable Entourage system, called the Entourage PS, is also available and priced at around $350.
Both systems can be found at consumer electronics and automotive retailers in the U.S. and Canada as well online. For more information visit www.blacklinegps.com.
