“Insect” is fitted to the bike with a vandal-proof attachment. When the owner moves away from the bike, “insect” activates automatically and monitors the bike. If a thief attempts to steal the bike, “insect” sounds a loud alarm (90 dB). At the same time, the owner receives a push message by smartphone with notification of the theft. In addition, all Fahrradjäger devices in the vicinity also receive notification of the theft. If the bicycle is moved, “insect” becomes a direction-finding transmitter.
Velocate is a GPS tracking system integrated into an original rear luggage rack light manufactured by Büchel, especially designed for bikes and e-bikes. In the event of theft, velocate actively sends an alarm to the owner of the bike by push message thanks to an enclosed SIM chip and transfers the GPS position live to the user’s smartphone. In situations without GPS reception (e.g. garages or cellars), the incorporated Bluetooth close-range tracking function enables the bike to be located. The battery included charges automatically using dynamo or pedelec current.
