DeWalt expands its security business with the MobileLock GPS Locator and Anti-Theft Alarm. The unit is a stand alone, portable, wireless system that easily mounts to equipment using heavy-duty magnets or screws. Other anti-theft systems use radio frequency to locate stolen assets, but MobileLock features a GPS locator that allows contractors to find equipment in real time using the Internet. An alarm notification alerts the customer when the equipment has been disturbed or if someone tries to remove the MobileLock unit. The system runs on rechargeable lithium ion batteries and will remain powered for 30 days. MobileLock units range in price from $499 to $599.
