OK, so it's 3AM and I am writing an article for my website. Either I have no life or this is really exciting news and I cannot sleep. The cynic in me would say it is the first, but in reality it is the second.... maybe a combination of both.

A number of years ago I started to notice an increase in the failure rate of certain security alarm / CCTV components.

An affordable solution for vehicle tracking is now here. We have all heard of GPS Vehicle tracking being used to track and control stolen vehicles.

From couriers to trades, GPS Vehicle tracking services have been used to manage fleets and make more money.
