When owners lock their bike up they just have to arm the tracker by holding the on/off button for three seconds. Then, in the annoying event that the bike is pilfered, SpyLamp 2 will detect prolonged motion and send an SMS message.
The SpyLamp is pragmatic; it accepts that bikes get stolen from time to time, and focuses on getting them back and catching the thief [...] A mobile phone, vibration sensor and GPS chip are all crammed inside what looks like – and even works as – a rear bike light.
Basically it's a standard-looking LED light containing a GPS chip and a pay-as-you-go SIM card. Most of the time it just sits there attached to your bike, you can even use it as a rear light should you so wish. If your pride and joy gets nicked, however, the GPS will do its magic and track the bike, drawing a nice line on a Google map for you to follow to the tea-leaf's house.
The GPS inside the rear light can be activated by pressing the switch button. After several seconds, the tracking device will activate and based on the vibrations that the bike gives off, the GPS sensor relays the bike’s current location to an online server. The server then alerts the owner of the bike through sms.
Touted as 'the biggest bike lock innovation… ever' and installable on virtually any make & model, The InterLock's a low-profile, anti-theft cable rig concealed within your whip's seatpost that'll secure it to any rack, fence, or pole as effectively as a traditional cable lock, but since it's built in, will prevent you from getting all Huffy by accidentally leaving it at home.
People really don’t want to carry their bike locks around with them, do they? Over the past few years, we’ve seen locks that fit in a water bottle cage, get strapped to the top tube, or that are even worn as a belt. The InterLock’s approach is particularly interesting, however ... it’s integrated into its own seat post.
The InterLock hides inside of your bike frame through the seat post. It's universal and can be installed on virtually any bike.
The InterLock is a bicycle lock that is housed in your bike’s seatpost. The InterLock is just long enough to secure the rear wheel and rear triangle to a bike rack. It uses two 20in-long, 8mm-thick, braided-steel cables encased in a thin vinyl jacket that slide through the seatpost and into your bike’s seat tube when not in use.
Locks are heavy, bulky, and a pain to carry around. That’s why I always carry my bikes inside. For those who aren’t as paranoid, InterLock has a Kickstarter campaign currently running for an integrated seat post bicycle lock which should keep most crummy commuter bikes relatively safe.
None of the thousands of Defenders sold to date (in 29 countries) has been stolen. Its 100-hour battery life will last a typical commuter about 6 months, and the revolver design is pretty badass.
Unlike most handlebar-mounted systems, the Defender doesn't consist of a bolt-mounted base and a quick-release light. Instead, both sections are formed out of one continuous piece of aluminum.
After a friend had his bike light stolen and got hit by a car, MIT bike geeks built a Theft-Resistant Bike Light.
The upside to the Defender Bike Light is that it is one of the hardest to steal lights.
