I realise this list's topic is wireless data networks but I figured I if
I'm going to catch the attention of someone who's knowledgable in the area,
this would be a good place to try.
Does anyone know of any portable tracking devices and services available in
Australia? (or available internationally with access in Australia). A good
example is the MicroTrax system here:
http://www.govcomm.harris.com/programs/microtrax/ but I doubt this is
available to the public. What I'm interested in mainly is tracking
expensive pieces of hardware. It's mainly out of curiosity though, to see
if such a system exists, how it works and the kind of costs involved.
Like buy an attachable device and stick it inside, say, the base of a new
lcd screen you just invested in and later track it down if/when someone
attempts to steal it (ofcourse the more goody-two-shoes of us might call
this a lesser form of entrapment ;).
PS. I'm trying Eudora at the moment, apologies if this gets sent in HTML.
