Alarm, monitor, and track your bike.

*according to our own research through the AlterLock app.
AlterLock is an alarm/GPS tracking security device for bikes. It lets you keep a remote eye on your bike and notifies you on your phone when the device detects movement while the bike is locked away.
If the AlterLock device detects motion from your bike while in Lock mode, it will blare out an alarm that is as loud as 95dB, which is louder than a lawnmower, almost just as loud as a helicopter.
When motion is detected, the AlterLock app will notify you on your phone with its own notification sound, so you can distinguish it from other notification sounds like email and realize you need to get to your bike straight away.
In the unlikely event that your bike is stolen, AlterLock can track it once a minute all the way to its final destination. If the bike is moved indoors where there is no GPS signal, the device uses Wi-Fi signals to determine its approximate location. This can also provide clues if the bike is abandoned or when the police search for it.

Differences from Bluetooth trackers
Bluetooth trackers use your smartphone’s location to track your device. They’re super-lightweight and consume very little power, making them ideal for searching for lost items at short distances.
AlterLock is equipped with stand-alone communication and GPS, so it can be tracked anywhere in its communication area.
Differences from GPS trackers
GPS trackers are perfect for recording travel routes because they acquire location information at regular intervals. However, because of this, GPS tracking has very high power requirements and often runs for only a few dozen hours before the battery is exhausted.
AlterLock uses GPS in conjunction with an accelerometer only in the event of theft, so it can be tracked for weeks.
Our commitment to aerodynamics
Nowadays, exceptional aerodynamic performance is the hallmark of a road bike. We’ve kept this in mind in designing AlterLock.
AlterLock is an anti-theft device, but it’s been improved in terms of size and aerodynamics so you don’t have to sacrifice your bike’s aero performance.
We’ve perfected a device that allows all cyclists, from beginners to pros, to focus on riding in the confidence that they’re not being slowed down.
At 40 km/h, the Cd value is +0.00062. That’s less than an extra 0.01 seconds travel time per hour.
