Security for Bikes : BIKE GUARD

Many of your near and dear ones might have felt very bad when they had lost their vehicles during the night when they have parked them outside or in any unauthorized parking place….

I too had many experiences, one of my friend has lost his bike while he has just parked his bike adjacent to a busy road lane during the busy hours and within 10 minutes his bike was stolen and police complaint also did not get his bike back till now….

This was because of lack of any security for it, if we have secured softwares for many electronic devices like Mobile Phones then why not for BIKE…. so an organisation has come up with an idea….Let us know what it is about….

About Bike Guard

A bicycle is stolen every seven seconds in the U.S., and while thousands of bicycles are recovered by law enforcement each year, very few are returned. The reason is that there is often no way to identify the bicycle’s owner.

BikeGuard™: The Free Bike Registry is a service hosted byMyAssetTag, an online retailer which makes asset tags to identify your bike in case of theft or accident. We catalog bicycles and their owners via individual numbers stamped on the frame of registered bikes. And we offer asset tags and registration for up to three bikes to bike owners across North America for free.

Mobile internet use nearing 50%

Almost half of UK internet users are going online via mobile phone data connections, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Some 45% of people surveyed said they made use of the net while out and about, compared with 31% in 2010.

The most rapid growth was among younger people, where 71% of internet-connected 16 to 24-year-olds used mobiles.

Domestic internet use also rose. According to the ONS, 77% of households now have access to a net connection.

That figure was up 4% from the previous year, representing the slowest rate of growth since the ONS survey began in 2006.

Among the 23% of the population who remain offline, half said they “didn’t need the internet”.

 

Household internet access

Year Households (millions) Percentage
2006 14.3 57
2007 15.2 61
2008 16.5 65
2009 18.3 70
2010 19.2 73
2011 19 77

The ONS report is the first since dot-com entrepreneur Martha Lane-Fox was appointed as the government’s UK Digital Champion, with a brief to increase internet uptake.

In a statement, Ms Lane-Fox said: “That so many offline households don’t see any reason to get online reinforces the importance of the digital champions network that the Raceonline2012 partners are creating.”

Mobile revolution

The figure for domestic connections contrasted sharply with the rapid growth in uptake of mobile services.

However, the popularity of 3G broadband did not necessarily mean that more people were going online overall.

Many of those using mobile phones are likely to already have home broadband connections.

Older users, who the government is particularly keen to get connected, appeared to have been relatively untouched by the phenomenon.

While 71% of 16 to 24-year-old who went online said they used mobile broadband, just 8% of internet users aged over 65 made use of the newer technology.

 

The ONS survey also found a dramatic rise in the use of wifi hotspots – a seven-fold increase since 2011 – suggesting that the rise of 3G has done little to slow demand for free and paid-for wireless access.

All findings were based on a monthly survey of 1,800 randomly selected adults from across the UK.

Crime has been on the rise and it’s important to keep a track on your children, lest anything happens to them. SatGuide has launched Child Phone with Tracker in India to help you to keep a watch on your children when they are away.

Child Phone is a GPS receiver, which when activated helps parents keep a check on their children. In any sort of an emergency, a kid can contact his/her parents by pressing the SOS button in the middle. This sends out SMS messages to preconfigured numbers so that you take appropriate action. . This gadget works two ways it can track using the powerful GPS and when GPS signal is unavailable it can switch to GSM Cell Tower triangulation technologies.

 

Child Phone protection

A normal mobile phone for your child may be another option but it has its own disadvantages. The child may play around with the phone which may drain off the battery or can even accidentally switch it off, not to mention calling unwanted numbers. As far as GPS is concerned parents would in no way get a costly phone with all those features for their child.

 

Parents can build a “Geo Fence” which is a virtual fence like your residential area or the school and parents get a notification if their child has left that area. They can also call their kids discretely during an emergency and listen to what’s going around in their kid’s environment. Child Phone is small and has no display so it’s comfortable for kids to carry it and they don’t get distracted by it. Following are some other ways of using Child Phone:

  • Can be used almost instantaneously. GPS integrated, fast Time To First Fix (TTFF) to GPS satellites,
  • Parent can locate the kid at all times discretely on a map through a web login without disturbing the child.
  • You can also schedule, your child phone tracking at continuous & periodic times of your choice and get SMS & email alerts.
  • Fake power off feature, when configured, the device works even when the device is switched off.
  • Lost mobile feature, if the SIM is changed in this mobile, you would get an alert giving the details of the changed mobile number.

Child Phone Key Features

* Easy to use with a compact design

* Supports GSM Tri-Band frequency

* GPS through SatTracx service

* Geo Fence security

* Works indoors and even when GPS is unavailable

* Locate using Web or by calling the phone.
