WiTi incorporates an innovative and world first anti-theft device specifically designed for caravans and camper trailers. If an attempt is made to steal a caravan or trailer, WiTi will detect movement via a highly sensitive gyroscope. The system immediately applies the brakes to prevent the caravan or trailer from being towed, as well as flash all the external lights and sound a 105db alarm.
The siren will cease after 30 seconds and WiTi will re-enter monitoring, repeating the cycle if movement is detected again.
WiTi is sensitive enough to detect an attempted break-in. Sharp knocks and bangs such as trying to force entry into tool boxes or force open doors are detected and will set off the alarm. A swaying or side to side rocking movement has been programmed out to prevent the alarm from activating in windy conditions. In practice you can walk around inside the van without setting it off but if you stamp your foot or slam a cupboard door this will set it off.
WiTi is more than a deterrent it is the only anti-theft system that totally immobilises a caravan or trailer.
WiTi Anti-Theft is now available with integrated GPS tracking and alerting for the ultimate peace of mind. WiTi has partnered with global leaders Quiktrak, and has integrated QuikProtect GPS Tracking and Alerting into WiTi Anti-Theft. This extends the functionality of WiTi Anti-Theft and provides mobile phone alerts if the alarm is triggered as well as real time tracking in the event of theft. QuikProtect is a "location on demand" system allowing the user to locate and receive notifications via the QuikProtect mobile or web applications. QuikProtect utilises a low cost credit system, eliminating ongoing monthly fees. An event deducts a credit from the credit balance and is defined as any one of the following:
- WiTi Anti theft is triggered and the alarm runs for at least 15 seconds
- Low voltage where the battery voltage drops below 11.5V
- Battery disconnect - if the battery is tampered with or disconnected for any reason
- Location request - if a location ris requested via the App or Web interface
- Geo Lock alert - the device can be Geo-Locked to a location and if the caravan or trailer is moved more than 200m from this location an alert will be sent
For each of these events an alert is sent to the QuikProtect App. In the unlikely event of theft the solution includes live tracking and recovery assistance where QuikTrak will work with the Police to assist with recovery of the caravan or trailer.
Upon registration an initial 10 credits are supplied free of charge. Additional credits can be purchased via the mobile or web application at a rate of $18 for 100 credits.
Break Away System
WiTi provides an integrated break away system that complies with ADR38/04. As WiTi already manages electric brakes it was a logical progression to include a break away system.
Please note that the NSW regulation for battery monitoring of the break away battery was changed in November 2018 and is no longer a requirement.
WiTi consists of two units, a sender unit in the vehicle and a receiver unit in the trailer or caravan. The units are permanently paired with each other and communication between units is fast, secure and stable.
Multiple trailer units can be paired to a single vehicle unit for those customers looking to tow multiple trailers such as a boat as well as a caravan.
Driving lights, indicators, brake lights and electric brake controller signals are all transmitted to the trailer / caravan.
WiTi does not rely on the internet for connection, it is a point to point technology. The signal is also encrypted for security and other wireless devices (mobile phones, bluetooth, wifi devices) cannot interfere with the WiTi Wireless Interface.
WiTi Brake Controller with Hill Descent Control
WiTi now offers an integrated brake controller with ground breaking Hill Descent Assist. The WiTi Brake Controller connects to the Vehicle Unit with a dash mounted dial for gain adjustment and manual override.
The WiTi Brake Controller offers two significant safety innovations, Hill Descent Assist and Brake Smoothing. It is the only brake controller that significantly increases safety and performance when towing down hills.
Hill Descent Assist improves safety and control when descending steep hills. All proportional brake controllers use inertia to determine the braking force applied to the brakes. The firmer the braking the more inertia is generated and braking is applied on the caravan or trailer in proportion. However, when descending steep hills the driver of the tow vehicle typically feathers the brakes to maintain speed - this generates no inertia as there is no deceleration. As a result there is no braking applied to the caravan or trailer and the tow vehicle is being pushed down the hill. WiTi Hill Descent Assist eliminates this by measuring the angle of descent and applying the brakes relative to the gain setting on the dash mounted dial. The steeper the descent the more braking is applied resulting in a safer more controlled descent.
No other brake controller offers Hill Descent Assist - another global innovation for WiTi.
Brake Smoothing eliminates the sharp and annoying jerking that may occur with other brake controllers. With WiTi the output to the electric brakes on the caravan or trailer is measured and smoothed electronically to provide a more comfortable and safer towing experience and eliminate harsh jerking under firm braking.
3rd Party Electric Brake Controllers
If you have already invested in a break controller it will work seamlessly although Hill Descent Assist and Brake Smoothing are proprietary technologies to WiTi. WiTi takes the output from the 3rd party brake controller converts it to a digital signal and transmits it to the trailer or caravan. Most modern brake controllers available in Australia have been extensively tested and will operate seamlessly with WiTi.
