Entourage: The Ultimate Location Awareness and Vehicle Security!
Introducing ESCORT Entourage - the Ultimate Location Awareness and Vehicle Security. Our new Entourage products use GPS technology to provide location awareness for the things that matter most. Put one in your car, your luggage, golf bag or in your child' s backpack. Entourage also allows you to become more aware of your teenager's driving habits, including speed and their whereabouts. An easy-to-use web based interface allows you to track your precious items any time. And, instant alerts via SMS and email keep you posted on whether something is moving that shouldn't be.
LoJack Alternative: Escort Unveils Antitheft and Tracking Devices at CES Show
It looks like the LoJack Car Security System finally has some serious competition in the form of Escort's Entourage CIS and PS, featured at this year's CES show in Las Vegas.
The $399.95 Escort Entourage CIS is installed somewhere in the vehicle, but unlike like the LoJack system, which becomes a permanent part of the car, the Entourage PS can be transported from one vehicle to another. The Entourage CIS can send text messages and e-mails if it senses the vehicle has moved while the owner and the special key fob are away.
Should that happen, the optional GPS security system automatically activates and the owner will get a phone call from Escort. Besides theft-prevention, the technology can also help you track the vehicle's location and, as CNet.com notes, track teen drivers and let them know when they are driving too fast or that they're simply out too late. Ford has a similar idea in the form of its MyKey on the Taurus, which can program the car to limit speed, not to mention set a maximum stereo volume of 45%.
Unlike the Entourage CIS, the Entourage PS is portable. The unit can be hidden in a number of different vehicle locations and will still receive a signal that can be sent to your smartphone or computer. While the Entourage PS is $50 cheaper, it does need to be charged about once a week. As with the CIS model, the PS can send text messages and e-mails as often as the owner wishes.
