We have partnered with Integrated Trackers, one of our suppliers for bait bike equipment, to offer a unique bicycle tracking system to the general public.
Spybike is great for protecting your bicycle from theft, however, law enforcement agencies looking to set up a Bait Bike program should see our law enforcement products page for technology specific to Bait Bikes.
SpyBike is a covert tracking device that is hidden inside your bicycle steerer tube. The device is disguised to look like a normal headset cap to avoid suspicion. If someone steals your bike, you can use SpyBike to track their movements online and on your mobile phone.
On any of the following GSM bands: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
Free Online Tracking Service
Should your bicycle be stolen, this vibration activated tracker will begin uploading its coordinates to our free online service. You can log into the WhereIsIt page and see where your bicycle was taken. This service is free for you to use.
Extremely inexpensive to run
Using a typical US SIM, each position upload costs approximately $0.00002. We do not charge you anything, this is just the SIM data charge.
Spybike comes with a special installation key. This lets you install and remove the tracker.
When you lock your bicycle up, you can arm the tracker with your arming keyring. Should the bicycle then detect movement, it will send you an SMS to alert you. It will then automatically start uploading its position. You can then logon and track your bike.
Should your bicycle be inside a building it may not be able to obtain a GPS lock. In this case it will fall back to GSM positioning. This is less accurate (approx 200 meters) but will give you an indication of where your bicycle is until it can obtain a better lock.
The tracker contains a rechargable lithium battery and comes with a charger. The tracker can go for months between charges as long as you remember to disarm the tracker before riding your bike.
The tracker's main defence is disguise. It is designed to look inconspicuous. It appears as a regular headset cap.
Initial configuration is done by sending the unit SMS text messages. Once it is installed, you should not need to touch it again. It is armed and disarmed with your SpyBike Keyring.
Your tracker requires a SIM card. Since it will use little credit it is usually most cost effective to buy a pay-as-you-go SIM and just top it up occasionally. How to get an AT&T SIM card.
