Owntracks Location Tracking and Alerting

Owntracks is an open source app for iOS and Android that allows you to keep track of your (or vulnerable family member’s) location. However, it also has business uses to track valuable assets. You can also build a private location diary and share it with others.

It works with iBeacons to provide:

  • Locating indoors where GPS doesn’t work
  • Attributing location to a vehicle to track time spent commuting or to see where you have parked your car
  • Fitting to keys/luggage/expensive equipment to get notified when you leave them behind
