Technology is an amazing thing. What used to be the subject of futuristic science movies only a few short years ago has become reality today at extremely affordable prices. Global Positioning Systems (GPS) devices were once limited to military applications or extremely expensive contraptions the size of large bricks. Today, the same technology has become so commonplace and compact that trackers like the eZoom by SecurUS offer a portable unit the size of a pack of gum for less than $100 plus a monthly service fee.

There is a choice of installation methods ranging from charging it from home then placing the tracker anywhere with something as simple as double-sided tape or a more permanent method that keeps the unit charged at all times.

Once installed, tracking can be done from any Internet-connected computer or smartphone. The system can be armed/disarmed, alerts set up for exceeding preset speeds, and an area boundary set that is accurate within a few feet. The system interface is extremely user friendly, and a toll-free live support is available if needed. For anyone looking to keep track of a prized possession or even a child or loved one, this truly is the future in the palm of your hand.
