The Mi Tracking Device series is our security system with coverage throughout Europe. Our models Mi7 through Mi9 each have their own unique functions (see factsheet). These systems ensure that your vehicles can be easily traced back - following theft, for example. The device is very small and works on an internal battery. It can therefore be discreetly tucked away anywhere inside the vehicle, making it virtually unfindable. It transmits signals via GSM (mobile communications network) and radio frequency (and the Mi7 and Mi9 also via GPS), meaning that it will work always and anywhere in Europe.
Following theft and subsequent automatic reporting to law enforcement services, the device will transmit a signal at least once every hour via the GSM network as well as every second via radio frequency. These signals will ensure that the stolen vehicle can be located quickly and with precision. Over the course of time we have been able to recover very many vehicles in this manner. A significant added benefit is that the system is competitively priced, making it suitable for vehicles in various segments.

Mechanism of the tracking devices
The Mi7, Mi8 and Mi9 tracking device will send out a signal once a day from its location. After this, the device turns itself off. Upon theft of the vehicle, you must contact our Emergency Centre. They will then remotely activate the system to Theft mode. They works based on GSM and Radio Frequency; the Mi7 and Mi9 additionally also uses GPS.
Based on one signal a day, the Mi7 has a lifespan of 3 years, the Mi8 a lifespan of 6 years and the Mi9 of 9 years. For the Mi8 and Mi9 it’s also possible to increase the signal frequency to 3 times per 24 hours (this will however diminish the lifespan of the battery due to increased power consumption).
In addition, the Mi9 has the Dutch TV01 certificate, which is issued by KIWA SCM since 1 June 2016. This means that the Mi9 system can recover the vehicle within 24 hours in the Netherlands.
