Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR LOCATING, TRACKING AND/OR RECOVERING A WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS POUR LOCALISER, SUIVRE ET/OU RÉCUPÉRER UN DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION SANS FIL.
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods, systems, devices and computer program products are provided for locating, tracking and/or recovering a wireless communication device that has been misplaced, lost or stolen. In addition, the aspects provide for tracking or surveillance of the location or user in instances in which the wireless device has been loaned or is being used for covert surveillance. The aspects include communicating a locating state code to the targeted device, which detects the code and executes one or more routines that are associated with the respective code. In this regard, the targeted device is capable of carrying out different routines or sequences of actions depending on the state of the device, such as a misplaced state, a lost state, a stolen state or the like, which is based on the respective code.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés, systèmes, dispositifs et produits de programme informatique pour localiser, suivre et/ou récupérer un dispositif de communication sans fil qui a été mal placé, perdu ou volé. De plus, les aspects permettent le suivi ou la surveillance de l'emplacement ou d'un utilisateur dans des cas dans lesquels le dispositif sans fil a été prêté ou est utilisé pour une surveillance de couverture. Les aspects comprennent la communication d'un code d'état de localisation au dispositif ciblé, qui détecte le code et exécute un ou plusieurs sous-programmes qui sont associés au code respectif. A cet égard, le dispositif ciblé peut exécuter différents sous-programmes ou séquences d'actions en fonction de l'état du dispositif, tel qu'un état mal placé, un état perdu, un état volé ou similaire, qui est basé sur le code respectif.
