With its name being "the antithesis of HiJack," LoJack is a tracking system that aids in the recovery of vehicles subject to theft. At the core of the system is the installation of a small transceiver that transmits a signal to the police cars within three to five miles of the stolen automobile. LoJack also has a service called LoJack for laptops and services that also help protect smartphones and tablets.
