At least, hundreds of motorcycles theft cases are registered in police stations every day.
Robbers are making cash from the loopholes with the existing locking system in vehicles.
The current two lock system provided in motorcycles that include start lock and vehicle lock is not entirely secured when you park vehicles in public areas as trained robbers are easily unlocking both of these locks.
However, this can be possible with a simple GPS enabled sensor and a Mobile App. This GPS-enabled sensor will be integrated with locking system, whereas the mobile app is configured to the secret key of the sensor.
Smart Lock for motorcycles works in the following way
- Every Smart locking system will have a GPS-enabled sensor. This Smart locking system should be replaced with the traditional or default mechanical locking system.
- Every Smart Lock has a secret key which should be activated through the mobile app.
- To install this mobile app, the user should have a smartphone. By using this mobile app, the user can lock and unlock the motorcycle. User can also identify the location of motorcycle and can get security alerts during theft
- Only the users who have activated the secret key using the mobile app can lock or unlock the respective Smart locks. The user can’t lock or unlock the other Smart locks which are not activated in his Smartphone
- The intelligent locking system will have double lock option as it can be locked using the mobile app or using a key.
