Abstract
The problem of property crime exists on university campuses worldwide. There is also difficulty in monitoring and determining the location of items. Organizations have sought to rely on tracking devices to curb this issue. However, these devices are either too expensive, require high power consumption or are bulky and cannot be used to track small devices. In this project, an affordable and portable system is developed that monitors devices and alerts users once their items cross boundaries (geo fences).
