VALENCIA, Calif., Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveViewGPS, a leading GPS car tracking company, has compiled a list of the top items stolen from homes and home building sites, and it may surprise some that refrigerators, ovens, and dishwashers top the list.

"A refrigerator may not seem very easy to steal, but at home building sites large appliances are often left unprotected while builders are offsite," said Mike Miracle, a LiveViewGPS representative. "Our mobile alarm GPS locator is ideal for monitoring valuable mobile assets, such as appliances, to ensure jobsite security and 24/7 asset management."

Mobile alarm GPS locaters utilize GPS technology to monitor the location of appliances, toy trailers, boats, jet skis, motorcycles, televisions, computers, and other valuables, even providing locating abilities in most indoor environments. Mobile equipment tracking systems not only notify up to three people via SMS or email when property is tampered with or stolen, but they increase chances of recovering stolen property with their GPS locating features. Even when the mobile alarm has been disarmed, it will provide notification that it has been removed from its mounting surface.

The vibration sensor on this asset tracking equipment detects vibration on a metal container or movement of heavy equipment, and includes a customizable filter to block false alarms such as accidental bumps, thunder claps, objects falling on the equipment, etc. Additionally, many mobile alarm GPS locators can notify users when the location of the assets they are monitoring hits a preset high or low temperature.

"Our mobile alarm GPS tracker system isn't just to protect against theft and tampering," said Miracle. "You can also keep track of the conditions of your storage area and ensure your valuable equipment doesn't get too hot or cold."

Other items on LiveViewGPS's list of most commonly stolen items include outdoor air conditioner units from homes and car tires.
