Starcom’s WatchLock the industry’s first high-security padlock with built in u-blox GPS and GSM wireless communications capability. Watchlock combines a Mul-T-Lock high security padlock with an electronic alarm system from Starcom Systems. WatchLock is the first padlock that can report tampering while simultaneously transmitting its location to an online web application, targeted for both static (warehouses, fuel pipes, fences) and mobile applications (trucks, trailers, vending machines).
WatchLock integrates a u-blox LEON GSM module together with a UBX-G6010 GPS receiver chip. All u-blox 6 GPS receivers are hardware and firmware compatible with u-blox compact LEON 2G and LISA 3G wireless modules. This provides a mobile communications back-channel that enables numerous location-aware features for consumer, automotive, and industrial applications.
