What our customers say about the GPS trackers from PAJ

Application areas

Protect, what you love !

GPS trackers are small and reliable. Your applications inexhaustible. For example, they are used to track pets like dogs or cats. GPS transmitters also play an important role in the personal location. The small GPS transmitter can also save lives. In the care sector, especially for the protection of people with dementia , GPS trackers are frequently used. But children are also protected by the use of tracking devices. Just as reassuring helper can serve as a GPS tracker, e.g. if the child comes out of school too late. Tracker alone serve the feeling of security. It can be checked by locating where the GPS transmitter is located. The built-in SOS button on some devices opens up further protection options.

In addition to people and animals, vehicles such as cars, trucks or motorcycles  are protected with a GPS tracker. There are two options: First, you can install the device firmly in his vehicle and connect it to the vehicle battery, on the other hand, a device can be used with a battery. The FINDER is then flexible and can be placed in the trunk, for example.

Other ways to use a GPS transmitter would be the protection of personal belongings. For example, a suitcase  or a bag  are already used here. Luggage has already been quickly located and recovered with the help of a GPS location after a loss. Losing important documents with a GPS transmitter in Luggage  can be a thing of the past. Even drones  are equipped and protected with our small FINDER. The list of potential application areas can be continued for a long time.

GPS tracking historically 

GPS was launched in 1973 and was developed by engineers Bradford W. Parkinson, Richard Schwartz and James Spilker on behalf of the US Department of Defense. In the first step, GPS replaced in 1985 the previous satellite navigation systems of the US Navy and the Vela satellites for the detection of atomic explosions. GPS was the first global satellite navigation system (GNSS, Global Navigation Satellite System). It is still operated today by the US Army – specifically: the US Air Force. After several years of testing, in 1978 the first GPS satellites were sent into orbit at a height of about 20,000 kilometers. From 1989, these so-called block-1 satellites were gradually replaced by a new generation of positioning satellites. The technology of today altogether 30 GPS satellites is constantly evolving. In May 2017, the first Block III satellites were launched into space to optimize GPS tracking.

GPS alternatives are, for example, the European satellite navigation system Galileo, the Russian GLONASS and the Chinese system Baidu. However, GPS remains paramount worldwide.

A decisive turning point for the private economy is the first possibility of civilian use. At the same time it is also the foundation for private GPS tracking. The then US President Ronald Reagan announced in the early 1980s that the system should be released after its completion for civilian use. The decisive factor was a tragic incident: in 1983, a run-down Korean airliner had invaded the Soviet airspace and was shot down by interceptors. However, after the system was fully operational in 1995, its civilian use was initially limited by so-called Selected Availability. Artificially deteriorated signals made it possible to determine the position outside of the military mission only with an accuracy of about 100 meters. The limited availability for civilian users was finally lifted on 2 May 2000.

Since then, GPS positioning has become established in a wide variety of applications. Airplanes and, more recently, unmanned drones can be navigated through GPS devices. Likewise, GPS transmitters enable a seamless tracking of the locations and routes of vehicles and people – these tasks are important for smooth logistical processes, but also for security authorities and personal safety, GPS tracking is very important. The concept of autonomous driving requires not only extensive digital technology but also control via GPS. Even from the professional sport, the system is now indispensable. With GPS, geodata for the control of competitions, but also for the live transmission of sporting events on the Internet are recorded. Private users use GPS tracking for security functions, for sports activities and in navigation systems.

Legally Aspects

Today’s GPS trackers are small and handy. In fact, these are mobile surveillance systems, with which the movement patterns of persons can be completely traced. Using a GPS transmitter, it is possible to determine where and how long a person stays at a particular time, where they are going and what route they have chosen. This results in legal aspects that must be considered by active users of GPS trackers. The violation of privacy rights and data protection matters could otherwise make them liable to prosecution.

In the private sector, GPS tracking by adults is only allowed if the data subject has informed and given their consent. Anyone who secretly installs a tracking device in his partner’s car or places it on the mobile phone without his knowledge commits a breach of the law.

In companies, the use of GPS tracking is allowed under certain conditions. Operational interests must be more important than employee interests in this case. Examples are the fleet control via GPS, the monitoring of very valuable transports or the use of GPS to guarantee the safety of the employees. However, the data obtained in this way may not be personal. For example, a tracked vehicle should not be assigned to a particular driver. Employees must know that the Company uses GPS tracking and gives their written consent. In addition, the GPS monitoring of employees is only allowed during working hours. Anyone who is allowed to use his company car privately does not have to accept GPS tracking by the employer during his free time. It is generally forbidden to monitor individuals individually or to use tracking data in connection with an employee’s employment relationship. Exceptions apply to individual cases if there is suspicion of a criminal offense. In this case, GPS surveillance is subject to the same legal regulations that apply to state investigative authorities: it must be a suspected criminal offense of considerable importance. Monitoring by GPS positioning must be proportionate.

The right FINDER for every application

GPS trackers are versatile tracking devices. Whether suitcases, cars, motorbikes, bicycles, trailers, drones or even trucks and fleet management  – the areas of application are very versatile. Of course it is now necessary to find the right FINDER for the respective area. For this decision v.a. the different requirements of the individual application areas are considered more closely.

Battery life  is an important category in GPS tracking. Except for the vehicle tracking, if there is the possibility to completely avoid the store via a direct connection to the battery. For all other applications, the importance of battery life is critical. In addition, even the best GPS transmitter does not matter if it goes out suddenly during use. That is why we develop our batteries as well as we can and continue to achieve top results in comparison to the competition. Especially our POWER Finder is unbeatably enduring with its approximately 40 days of battery life , Also, our ALLROUND Finder – considering its low weight and the manageable dimensions – with about 20 days battery life not hide.

Which brings us to another very important aspect of GPS devices: size and weight . Especially humans and animals should experience more security through our trackers, but not more weight, which is perceived as disturbing. If you want to keep an eye on your cat or a smaller dog, you should definitely use our flyweight. At just 28 grams, our PET Finder is not a four-legged victim. In addition, he is barely bigger than a key. Not even a weight class above is our EASY Finder. Even with the practical metal buckle, the GPS transmitter does not weigh 50 g. So it can be easily used for personal location. Lightweight and handy, that’s how we imagine the perfect GPS tracker for animals and people, so we developed our FINDER accordingly.

How does a GPS tracker alert its user? 

Important alarm features of GPS trackers are:

A lot of time goes into the development of our devices in the development of the individual (alarm) functions . Always keeping in mind: How do we secure what is important to us? We never lose sight of the user-friendliness and clarity. Unlike logging devices, GPS trackers have various alarm features. For example, you will be alerted by a push message in the app and / or by e-mail. All alarms can easily be adjusted, switched on or off via the ONLINE portal. This is particularly useful, for example, with our vibration alarm. If you have parked your car, motorbike or bicycle, you just have to activate a function in our PAJ APP and have your GPS-secured alarm system ready. Whoever should now bring the vehicle to move, triggers an alarm, which arrives immediately on your devices.
Auch in der Personenortung versuchen wir die GPS-Ortung vorausschauend zu entwickeln und innovative Features einzubauen. Unser EASY Finder verfügt deshalb (insofern Sie dieses Feature möchten) über eine Ausschaltssicherung, die speziell für das Tracking demenzkranker Menschen konzipiert ist. Des Weiteren ist natürlich besonders unser SOS-Knopf unverzichtbar. Dieser kann Angehörigen entscheidende Informationen innerhalb kürzester Zeit übermitteln und so – im äußersten Fall – Leben retten. Die Zuverlässigkeit unserer Geräte ist uns deshalb eine Herzensangelegenheit. Eine vollständige Auflistung aller Funktionen von all unseren Geräte würde an dieser Stelle zu weit führen. In den einzelnen Anwendungsgebieten und Artikelbeschreibungen werden Sie auf weitere nützliche Zusatzinformationen, die Sie zur Absicherung benötigen, finden.

Of course, we would like to highlight our FINDER portal, which is perfectly matched with our M2M card. You can read about the advantages of the ONLINE location and the differences to the SMS location here . Whether track record, free app, unlimited location, drop or radius alarm, we would like to provide you with a worry-free package that leaves nothing to be desired or desired.
