What is Carwatch?

CarWatch enables customers to set an alert via the Cartrack mobile application on any of their vehicles that are equipped with fleet management tracking products. Subsequently, if any unauthorised ignition or movement of a specified vehicle takes place,  a phone call and push notification are sent to the client’s mobile phone.


Why Cartrack

Cartrack is the stolen vehicle recovery world champions, with a proven track record of success. Although we may not offer the specific service of recovering stolen vehicles in New Zealand, our ability to draw on our global experience means we can provide unparalleled expertise and insights to locate your stolen vehicles and assets quickly and efficiently. This particular service is created to provide customers with peace of mind, alerting them of potential theft and providing accurate location data to aid in recovery.

Our methodology is centered on delivering a discreet and highly effective solution that assists in locating stolen vehicles and assets. To achieve this, we have intentionally excluded features such as Panic Buttons, Start Inhibit, Early Warning, and Sirens. We have learned from our experience that these features can make a thief aware of the tracking system installed in the vehicle, leading them to disable it, which can make it impossible to locate your stolen vehicle or asset. We believe that when it comes to vehicle and asset theft, being fancy does not help, simple solutions work best.

How it Works

Carwatch  is available on a mobile app. The Carwatch App is designed to work hand in hand with Cartrack’s tracking devices that are installed in your vehicle. Once you activate Carwatch by turning its status to active, you will be notified immediately via a phone call the moment your vehicle’s ignition is switched on or there’s any movement of your vehicle or asset. With just a touch of a button, you can activate or deactivate alerts for your monitored vehicle or asset.

In the case of theft, Carrack’s active GPS tracker will provide you with live locations of your vehicle or asset, giving you real-time updates on its whereabouts. On the other hand, the passive tracker will transmit two signals a day, which will give you the last known location of your vehicle.
