Driver Recognition – A requirement of the S5 Thatcham criteria is that the device must be accompanied by a system which is used to verify the driver of the vehicle is an authorised user. With the Smartrack S5+, driver recognition can be in the form of either the D-iD mobile app or a physical Driver Detection card (D-iD2).
D-iD is a mobile app-controlled system suitable for Apple and Android. The tracking device will detect whether the authorised driver’s mobile phone is inside the vehicle when travelling. If the device does not detect the mobile phone in the vehicle, Global Telemetrics will endeavour to contact the registered keeper to ensure the vehicle’s safety. There is also an option within D-iD to receive push notifications each time the vehicle is started and report any unauthorised movement through the mobile app.
Driver Detection (D-iD2) is a physical card-based system requiring the driver to carry a card when driving the vehicle. If the card is not present in the vehicle when moving, Global Telemetrics will endeavour to contact the registered keeper to ensure the vehicle’s safety.
