A bicycle lock is an obvious solution to bike thefts, but it is not a foolproof method (unless your bike lock looks like this). So, here’s a high-tech solution to double up your bike’s security if the lock fails. This is MaxTracker, an anti-theft bike security device.
IMHO, MaxTracker is not an anti-theft device per se as it does not actively prevent the ride from being stolen. It does, however, alert you via 5G/LTE when there is movement and if in the event it has been hitched, you will be able to trace the bike in real-time. Using the mobile application, you will be able to customize the motion-sensitive alerts.
I think the most clever part of this system is, the device masquerades itself as a functional water bottle cradle which you can use to hold a compatible water bottle if you so desire. Because it is a functional water bottle cradle, the bike thief will never suspect the bike he or she just stolen is been tracked.
MaxTracker is powered by a rechargeable battery that offers over 2 months of battery life on a single charger. There is no worry about the weather too – thanks to the IP67 rated construction.
MaxTracker Anti-theft Bike Security Device will be available to pre-order on Indiegogo at discount rates. If you are interested, you may want to sign up to be notified when the campaign goes live.
