As the number of cars and bikes on Bangalore’s roads go up, so does the threat of vehicle thefts. Unattended vehicles, remote parking lots and unreliable valets place a huge burden on a vehicle owner, with no easy solution in sight. Added to this is rampant misuse of vehicles (especially cars and vans) by drivers who take advantage of the owner’s ignorance.
When Mallesh Reddy, a seasoned mobile communications professional having lived abroad for several years, returned to India, he realised that the security systems available to him did not prevent his car getting vandalised or subjected to theft repeatedly. This led him to leave his cushy executive job to set up iTrans to develop a solution to this menace.
Today, iTrans makes the unique Tcop, a GSM-based security device that only lets you know where your car/ bike is at any given time, irrespective of the distance between the owner and vehicle. Tcop is a mobile phone-sized device which can be hidden under the seat of a motorbike or behind the dashboard of a car and alerts the owner via SMS whenever there is an intrusion, unauthorized usage and theft. Location tracking by Tcop has enabled several vehicle owners to put a check on misuse of their cars by drivers. Tcop also lets one’s family know where the car (and the family member inside) is, thereby bringing down anxiety.
Today mobiles are the most preferred device not only for communication, but for entertainment and information seeking as well. With Tcop, mobiles now become a security device too, helping you communicate with your vehicle irrespective of its location.
With a substantial increase in the usage of cars and bikes across India coupled with an acute shortage of parking space, vehicle thefts are on the rise. Bangalore is positioned at the third spot after New Delhi and Mumbai in terms of vehicle theft cases.
Now it’s possible to manage the security of bikes/cars via mobile phones. iTrans Technologies has made it possible for car and bike owners to secure and track their vehicles using a simple SMS via their mobile phones. It doesn’t need any external hardware, software or servers and runs on proven GSM-technology. The device named Tcop can be hidden under the seat of a bike or behind the dashboard of a car. It has a SIM inside it which sends an SMS to the owner in the case of intrusion or theft and also triggers a burglar siren. If a bike/car is stolen the owner can send an SMS to the device and trigger a siren, thus attracting the attention of the passers by and disorienting the thief.This reduces dependence on security guards/police and ensures peace of mind even if the car or bike owner is at a great distance from his/her vehicle. Yet another example of how mobile phones have made our lives easier.
