Easy PC tracking

Asset Shield has launched a clip-on radio-based sensor that fits into a PC, and can be pinpointed to within 200 metres. The device can work for 31 days without power to help track PCs that have been unplugged and moved. When a machine is tampered with, it sends a signal to a central receiver unit, via a modem or network. The typical cost of a 1000-sensor system, over a three-year period, will be #2,500 per month.
