Phantom GPS Tracking Systems

Not only is your caravan valuable to you it's valuable to the ever increasing number of professional and determined gangs of thieves. So the security system you choose must be up to the job.

The choices of security products on the market is bewildering and to some extent undermined by the old fashioned reliance on hitch-locks, wheel-clamps and their like.

Locks, alarms and immobilisers are good anti-theft deterrents, giving the thief less time, but they are no longer enough to prevent the theft of your motorhome or caravan.

Should you caravan or motorhome be stolen, the Phantom tracking systems vastly improve the chances of quickly recovering the vehicle and those irreplaceable valuables inside.

Using the Global Positioning Satellite system, the 24 hour Phantom monitoring centre can pinpoint the location of your stolen caravan or motorhome, enabling the police to make a speedy recovery and catch the thieves.

Phantom manufacture a pair of tracking devices specifically designed for use with caravans.

Both Phantom tracking systems are a single, compact unit fitted covertly inside your caravan, giving no clues as to their whereabouts.

Phantom Target for Caravans

The system utilizes 24 orbiting GPS satellites to deliver accurate location information on demand to a dedicated call centre within moments of your theft being reported. This location along with the crime reference number obtained from the client is used to engage the services of the local police and gain recovery of the stolen caravan. As they require no special equipment of their own, the police can simply despatch the nearest officers. Recoveries, therefore, are swift and your caravan likely to be recovered in the same state as when stolen.

Phantom enjoys a good working relationship with the police who have always responded in a timely fashion.

The Phantom Target systems are also the first in the UK to be Sold Secure 'Gold with Control Centre' approved giving caravan owners extra peace of mind. The system is also 'Q Class Listed' by Thatcham - the industry standard for vehicle security.

Phantom ProActive for Caravans

The Phantom ProActive device is able to communicate directly with the call centre and report on the status of the caravan it is protecting. This ingenious device monitors the caravan's alarm system and, should the alarm trigger, sends a message to the call centre carrying the location of the caravan. The call centre are thus able to phone you and confirm whether the alarm has been triggered by thieves or yourself.

If no alarm is fitted to the caravan you can still benefit from the rapidly communicating ProActive unit by having one of our tiny movement sensors fitted. This is hidden at the time of fitting the main unit and comes with a small switch. Thus you can switch the movement sensor on as you leave the caravan and switch it off when you wish to move it yourself. The movement sensors' sensitivity can be adjusted to meet your own caravan's individual requirements and would normally be set to trigger on the movement of the caravan itself rather than movement within the caravan, thus avoiding false alarm calls.

Benefits of Phantom Tracking Devices

Whichever unit you choose, it is hidden in your caravan drawing the minimum of power from your leisure battery. It would take in excess of 6 months for the unit to drain an 85Ah battery so you can take comfort in the fact that while your caravan is in storage, or on site, it is still being protected.

Because the units have a backup battery, they will still work if the thieves cut the main battery power to the caravan. Cutting power to the system will also alert the control centre, who will relay this information to the customer.

Satellite location of your caravan means that the average recovery time is less than 2 hours and far quicker for caravans with a ProActive unit. Swift and accurate response is obtained by a willing police force and your caravan is recovered in good repair.

The Phantom unit works throughout europe and no extra charge is made for this service. Wherever your caravan is, Phantom are watching over you. Your Phantom unit is transferable from caravan to caravan so costs are kept to a minimum. Most insurance companies recognise the benefits of the Phantom tracking system having had caravans recovered by ourselves and will offer you a discount if you have one fitted.

Where Can I get them From?

You can buy the trackers from Phantom Limited. Te Phantom Target for Caravans system costs 399 inc VAT and fitting and the Phantom Proactive for Caravans retails at 499 inc VAT and fitting.
