GLOSSARY OF FEATURES

Want to know more about the features included with Netstar’s tracking products? Read on through our glossary of features to discover everything you need to know.

Auto-arm Proximity Tag for Security

The Early Warning tracking device is always armed when the vehicle is parked and switched off. When your vehicle is driven and the Auto-Arm proximity Tag is not present, Netstar will receive an alert notification.

If your battery is disconnected, Netstar will send you an SMS alert.

Car Park Jamming Alert

If vehicle remote jamming is detected while locking your car, Netstar will send you an SMS alert.

Dot-on-the-map Tracking

The Basic-IoT device has different reporting intervals to optimise battery life. It reports every 90 minutes while the vehicle is stationary, and every 20 minutes while the vehicle is in motion, for more current real-time tracking.

Early Warning Theft Alert

If your vehicle is driven while the unit is armed, both you and Netstar will be alerted.

Fitment Certificate for Insurance

Once the fitment of your Netstar unit is completed, a fitment certificate will be issued, which can be used for insurance purposes.

Impact Detection for Safety
