Uplink adds GPS solutions to security product offerings

Wireless alarm communicator manufacturer Uplink announced Tuesday that it’s launching a new line of GPS tracking solutions, which will be sold exclusively through security dealers.

The u-TRAQ by Uplink solution, which hit distributor shelves this month, gives users a virtually undetectable auto tracking device that installs directly into the on-board diagnostic port of vehicles manufactured after 1996. For businesses looking for a fleet optimization tool, Uplink will also be releasing the u-TRAQ autoPRO solution, which provides fleet managers with added security and insight.

"u-TRAQ by Uplink is a natural enhancement to the peace of mind security dealers have been providing to both their residential and commercial customers for years," said Michael Gregory, vice president and general manager of Uplink. "Whether proposed with a premise-based security system or as a stand-alone offering to a home or business owner, this type of added security is a product line extension that makes great sense for the security dealers. Their customers trust the alarm company to keep their house and family safe. It makes sense for that same company to keep vehicles, children, personal and business assets safe as well."
