Top tips when choosing a caravan tracking device

  • European cover

    Make sure the tracking device you choose can operate in the countries you plan to visit. There are different types of European cover offered by tracking devices. Some devices will simply be able to tell you the location of your caravan when it is stolen abroad, whereas other devices offer full European monitoring and recovery with locally accredited monitoring centres to co-ordinate police response on your behalf in European countries.

  • Proactive tracking devices

    Such devices can alert you and your tracking device company as soon as thieves disturb or move your caravan, allowing for the quickest possible recovery.

  • 24 hour monitoring centre

    Leave the monitoring and recovering to the professionals. We do not accept self monitored devices.

  • Certifications

    Tracking devices that have been certified as Thatcham Category S5, S7, CAT 6, CAT 7 or Sold Secure - click here for details about security certifications.

  • Low battery alert

    If your caravan is not used for long periods, battery power to your tracking device could soon run out, rendering your tracking device useless. Some devices will alert you if battery power runs low.

Please note: The above comparison is for information only and is correct to the best of our knowledge. We do not accept any responsibility for any inaccuracies. We do not endorse or take responsibility for any product or service offered by the companies mentioned above.

If you currently have a caravan insurance policy on which you have stipulated that a tracking device is fitted, it will likely be a condition of theft cover that you do all you can to keep the tracking device operational – that’s certainly the case for Caravan Guard customers. Read our blog post on how to check your tracking device is still working.

Caravan Guard recognised tracking device certifications

S7 Category

Classed as asset location systems. This category largely combines previous Thatcham category 6 and 7 device standards into one. These devices may use GPS and or VHF location technology to locate your stolen caravan.

There is a sub category of S7 known as battery powered asset location systems – these devices don’t rely on your caravan leisure battery for power as they have their own power source. Many can also be self installed. If your device allows self installation, it’s important to follow supplier instructions to make sure the device is well hidden from thieves and fully operational. You may need a smartphone to download an app to make use of these devices. Also bear in mind the batteries inside these devices might have a lifespan between 1 and 5 years. Without battery power these devices may not be able to function. It’s your responsibility to make sure your tracking device remains powered at all times when listed on your insurance schedule.

The standard S7 and battery powered S7 asset location systems have different advantages. A standard S7 device can be proactive 24/7 enabling it to alert an owner as soon as their caravan is broken into or moved. This early alert could make a big difference to whether your stolen caravan is recovered.

Whereas a battery powered device may only wake once a day to conserve battery life – and only when awake will it relay the current position of your caravan, but once confirmed as stolen, these devices can be switched into active recovery mode to remain on and allow direction of police to its location.

Please note, we may still not accept a device that has one or more of these certifications. Please refer to the list above for specific devices we accept.
