CarWatch – your virtual car guard, anytime, anywhere

After turning off the ignition and locking your car, you trust it’ll be right there when you get back from your day at the office,  grocery run at the mall or wherever you park it.  No one has time to keep an eye on their car 24/7. 

But, what if you could rely on more than just your car’s locking system and the brightly-dressed car guard cheerily promising to look after your car until you get back? Well, now you can. 

 

A virtual eye on your car

Cartrack has developed an innovative addition to your vehicle’s protection   CarWatch is a virtual car guard, activated quickly and easily via the Cartrack app.

It allows you to remotely monitor your vehicle for any unwanted movements, giving you early detection to any possible theft scenarios with smart telematics technology for ultimate peace of mind.

CarWatch is a convenient, user-friendly feature on the Cartrack’s app that assists in detecting and reporting unauthorised vehicle activity.

How it works

If you’ve activated CarWatch   for any of your vehicles equipped with a Cartrack telematics device, you will instantly be alerted  via the app and SMS the moment your ignition is switched on or there’s been suspicious movement. You can easily activate or deactivate alerts for your monitored vehicle with the touch of a button.
