MaxTracker Develops Anti-Theft Bike Security Device
MaxTracker is an anti-theft bike security device that is disguised as a water bottle holder. This innovation provides the real-time GPS location and sends instant alerts to a user's phone when there is suspicious activity. In addition, it is safe, secure, waterproof, and weatherproof.
Fremont, CA: Bike theft cases rise about 14 percent each year in the United States, and bike locks do not guarantee bike safety in terms of theft, as none is a hundred percent unbreakable. The MaxTracker team has developed a game-changing device for cyclists that provides reliable security in combination with a good quality lock. MaxTracker is an anti-theft bike security device that is disguised as a water bottle holder. This innovation offers real-time GPS location and sends instant alerts to a user's phone when there is suspicious activity. It is safe, secure, waterproof, and weatherproof.
Thieves would never detect this clever device as it looks like a regular water bottle holder. On average, only 6 percent of stolen bikes are returned to owners. MaxTracker secures users a place in this group as they'll always have the specific location of their ride on the phone application. Forget about hefty recurring insurance payments.
MaxTracker allows owners to trace their bike in real-time 5G/LTE, whether parked or in transit. The complimentary mobile application sends out instant alerts whenever there is movement. Users can customize the motion sensitivity alerts based on their preferences. From tiny jolts to a foot away, the advanced technology of MaxTracker would be able to catch this.
Steve Maxey, the CEO of MaxTracker, mentioned that "This device was thoughtfully designed to minimize the daily concerns of a cyclist. Whether trail riding, over the road or just cruising around town, riding a bike should be a fun and relaxing experience."
MaxTracker is low-maintenance as a single charge provides 2+ months of battery life. Owners need not worry about weather conditions, as MaxTracker is IP67 waterproof. No matter the weather or terrain, the device is durable for any type of event.
"MaxTracker is the most effective and important component of a bike's anti-theft security system. It doesn't replace the necessity for a good bike lock. The lock and MaxTracker both act to enhance the effectiveness of each other. This is the state-of-the-art bike security system," concludes Maxey.
