BlackLine GPS tracker

Security company BlackLine GPS has introduced the Seeker, a GPS-based vehicle tracking device designed to help recover a vehicle if it is stolen. The device constantly monitors the vehicle's location relative to a GPS security perimeter. If a thief moves the vehicle outside of the perimeter, the owner receives a SMS alert message while the company's Recovery Service works with the police to help find the vehicle.

The system uses Aura technology to detect the proximity of the MyPass key fob. When the user walks away from the car, Seeker automatically arms the system, sets a perimeter, and begins monitoring its relative location. The device automatically disarms as the owner approaches the vehicle.

Users can take advantage of compatibility with other BlackLine technology, including the GPS snitch tracking device, Blip app for BlackBerry phones, and Harpoon marine recovery device. Location information and controls are also available from an Internet browser.

Seeker is wired into the vehicle's battery system via a two wire connection that supports 12V and 24V power supplies. The battery level can also be monitored from the Internet, or configured to send an email or SMS message when the level becomes low or the connection is severed. An internal battery lasts up to two days in the event of a power disconnection. Users can also share their location with others.

Seeker will be available early next year, with the equipment priced at $350. Service contracts that include "any-time" GPS tracking and the Recovery Service will cost $20 a month or $200 a year.
