Spylamp comes with a global prepay SIM. You can buy credit for that SIM card on our website at a cost of $4.50 per month. This includes 10 free SMS notifications and unlimited data traffic and emails. No contracts! You can also use your own SIM if you wish in which case our service is free and you will pay your SIM provider instead.
Free Online Tracking Service
If your bicycle is stolen, Spylamp's vibration activated sensors will begin uploading your bicycle's coordinates to our free online service. You can log into the tracking page on your mobile or PC and see where your bicycle was taken.
Spylamp contains a rechargeable lithium battery and comes with a charging cable. Spylamp can go for months between charges so long as you remember to disarm the tracker before riding your bike.
When you lock your bicycle up, you arm Spylamp by holding the on/off button down for 3 seconds. Should the bicycle subsequently detect movement, it will send you an SMS to alert you. It will then automatically start uploading its position to our tracking platform. You can then log on and track your bike on your PC or mobile app.
Should your bicycle be taken inside a building it may not be able to obtain a GPS lock. In this case it will fall back to GSM positioning. This is less accurate but will give you an indication of where your bicycle is until it can obtain a better GPS lock.
The trackers main defence is disguise. It is designed to look inconspicuous. It appears as a regular rear light and you (and the thief) can use it as one.
Initial configuration is done by sending the spylamp a series of SMS text messages or by by configuring it using the mobile app. Once configured, you should not need to send your spylamp SMS messages again. It is armed using the on/off button. (You can send it an SMS to arm it remotely if you forget).
All of our products are covered by a 12 months manufacturer’s warranty in case of defects and a 30 day refund policy in case your tracker does not meet your requirements for any reason.
Bicycle tail lights are not expensive but people do still steal them. Spylamp is attached with a special security screw to prevent casual thieves. You will receive the matching driver with your tracker.
Will Spylamp work in my country?
All spybike products will work anywhere in the world there is a 2G GSM mobile network. Our trackers contain a quad-band GSM modem which means is will work in any 2G GSM network. Japan and Singapore are not currently supported.
But my SIM card is 3G. Will it work on my network?
Most networks are 3G+2G. There are some 3G-only networks but these are rare. Most of the main networks support 2G. If you use our SIM card that is supplied with Spylamp then it can connect to multiple networks in most countries meaning you get better coverage.
What is the on-going monthly cost and how is it paid?
Spylamp needs a SIM card so it can upload coordinates during tracking and send you warning SMS messages. We supply a global SIM card on a prepay basis for $4.50 / month that comes with Spylamp. We recommend the use of our SIM card with our trackers since it is easier to configure, connects to multiple networks (better reception) and you can top it up online on our website. Since it is prepay you can buy as many or few months as you like (ie. You can protect your bike over summer if you wish). You can also use your own SIM card in which case you dont have to pay anything to us and can still use the online platform but you will need to pay for your data with the SIM card provider (telecom network).
What does the prepay SIM card include?
The $4.50 a month includes 10 free SMS notifications, and unlimited data traffic and emails. This is more than sufficient for the use of your top cap tracker as an anti-theft device, since it does not send an SMS each time it uploads its coordinates to our database. This ONLY applies if you use our SIM card that comes with Spylamp. You can also use your own SIM card in which case you dont have to pay anything to us and can still use our online tracking platform but you obviously have to pay for your data and SMS messages with your chosen network provider.
How securely fastened is Spylamp?
Spylamp is secured by a torx screw to stop casual thieves from stealing the light. You need a special tool (supplied with Spylamp) to remove it. We recommend you don’t use a quick release seatpost clamp when using spylamp to prevent seatpost theft
Can I use my tracker to track my bicycle rides?
In theory, yes you can use Spylamp to trace your routes when cycling, but you should be mindful that the battery would need charging much more regularly than if it was solely being used as an anti-theft device. (We recommend a free/inexpensive mobile app to track your rides and reserve Spylamp battery in case of theft)
Do you deliver to my country?
Yes – we deliver anywhere in the world. Shipping is a flat rate fee of $8 so the shipping cost is the same for any country. We now provide a tracking number with all shipments to keep you informed of the whereabouts of your delivery
