E-bike insurance – uncomplicated and fast help

Modern insurance companies now offer comprehensive services for bike. What is already standard for cars and even mandatory (liability and comprehensive insurance), is also increasingly offered for cyclists.

Reasons that speak for an insurance:

  1. The bike was very expensive.
  2. You depend on the bike, every day.
  3. You live in a theft stronghold (for example Bremen or Berlin).

Bike insurance at a glance

Basically, there is the possibility to insure your e-bike within the home insurance or to secure it via an exclusive bicycle or e-bike insurance. Both has advantages and disadvantages that you should think about before it comes to a decision.

Bicycle insurance

A bicycle insurance basically protects the new value of an e-bike. In the contract are mostly damage from theft, damage, falling / falling, Material and design defects as well as wear included. Explicit e-bike Insurance also provides protection for electronics and electronics Moisture damage. As part of a worry-free package, you can also use a free pick-up service.

Household insurance

If you expand your household contents insurance, then the new value of the bicycle in the Total value of the household included. In general, the refers Theft protection, however, then on e.g. E-bikes included in the bicycle cellar and not if it is properly, e.g. was connected at the station. The Electronics, etc. is usually excluded from the scope of insurance. In addition, the value of the refund does not reach the actual purchase price of the E-bikes.

In detail: bicycle insurance

An insurance for the bike or e-bike is worth especially if the value is over 500 euros. The scope of service varies depending on the insurance and what you are willing to spend annually. An individual adjustment of the insurance protection is a big plus for e-bike insurance. Theft protection is included in all insurances, in addition, vandalism damage can also be claimed.

E-bikes are very expensive to buy, therefore, bicycle insurance offers a so-called value guarantee: the total replacement value of the e-bikes will be refunded. But beware, the e-bike may not be older than a year when the contract is concluded. When it comes to repairs, some insurers work with authorized repairers. If it is important to you, then in any case ask if there is a free choice or if there is an authorized dealer. The night clause (in the time from 22 o’clock to 6 o’clock no liability for theft is taken over) does not exist with bicycle insurances, therefore you profit from a protection around the clock.

In detail: Household insurance

Home contents insurance is for many an all-rounder insurance. Bicycles are easily included in the portfolio. As an e-biker owner, however, you should look very carefully to see whether your current home insurance provides you with enough protection and damage coverage.

The costs are usually lower than with an additional e-bike insurance and The effort should also be lower, since no additional policy is needed. In addition, all bicycles are secured in the household with only one insurance – bicycle insurers do not currently offer.

Basically, the decision is the value of an e-bike. Because an expensive e-bike is to replace the complete value with insurance completed: Household insurance does in most cases not. A sample calculation: Your household contents are covered with 30,000 euros and the e-bike with 2 percent of the insured sum. Then your e-bike would be insured with only 600 euros. Presumably, the initial costs were significantly higher at > 2,000 euros.

More Disadvantages

  • Vandalism damage is not covered
  • Scope of services severely limited
  • Night time clause: limited protection between 10pm and 6am
  • Theft protection is only valid for locked rooms

What costs are to be expected?

Depending on the scope of the e-bike insurance, you pay between 180 and 300 euros per year.

If you expand your household contents insurance, you will incur approximately 50 euros per year. The costs vary regionally but very much: If you live in an area with high theft rate, then the insurance costs rise up to 350 euros per year.

The amount of the insurance premium always depends on the new value of the e-bike and the desired extent. You can use comparison calculators, which queries your individual needs and thus creates a real comparison of the offered e-bike insurance.

    The automatic opening and closing of I LOCK IT allows a high level of comfort in everyday cycling. In addition, I LOCK IT also offers a security against theft which is excellent for its purpose.

    Alarm on the bicycle

    LOCK IT is equipped with an integrated alarm system to increase theft protection for your bike. If your I LOCK IT locked bike is raised and moved, or if a thief attempts to break up I LOCK IT, the bicycle lock triggers a 110 dB alarm sound.

    The alarm scares the thief and alerts passers-by. After 30 seconds, the alarm will automatically stop. If the bike continues to move then the alarm will restart for 30 seconds. Thus, the bicycle theft is much more difficult.

    Theft notification

    If an alert is triggered due to an attempted bicycle theft, I LOCK IT will automatically send you a notification to your connected smartphone. You are directly informed and can look after your bike.

    You will receive the notification whenever you are in the vicinity and can intervene accordingly. The I LOCK IT App must be active in the background on your smartphone.

    Strong material selection

    The I LOCK IT housing is made of a polymer material, which is specially selected for reliable theft protection. This material is characterized among other things by a very high impact resistance.

    Smart Lock: The automatic mode of I LOCK IT

    The electronic bicycle lock I LOCK IT has a worldwide unique automatic mode. This ensures that your bike is always protected. Without effort!

    With the automatic function, you never open and close your bike again by yourself. In the future, with I LOCK IT you will have a bicycle lock, which will do it by itself. The intelligent bike lock connects you to your bike and thus offers maximum comfort.

    Automatic unlocking

    The unlock function of I LOCK IT is controlled via the I LOCK IT app. The smartphone automatically connects to your I LOCK IT as soon as you are within reach. For this purpose, the app uses the energy-saving Bluetooth low energy technology of your smartphone.

    If you are in the immediate vicinity of your bike, I LOCK IT will unlock it for you.

    The automatic unlocking distance can be configured to different distances via the I LOCK IT app.

    In addition to the distance, I LOCK IT also rates the movement of your bike through integrated 3D motion sensors. These check in all directions whether the bike is moving or not. This ensures that I LOCK IT completes exactly when you want it.

    If the Bluetooth connection to your smartphone is lost while driving, for example because your smartphone battery goes flat, then I LOCK IT will notice this. At your next stop the intelligent bike lock will inform you acoustically about the missing connection. You can then easily lock by pressing the button on your I LOCK IT.

    Bluetooth Bike Lock – Keyless Control

    Nowadays, the smartphone makes it easy for us to keep an eye on the devices and applications of our daily lives. The lighting or room temperature in the house, refrigerator contents and now also bike locks.

    A control of bike locks completely without a key or a number code is made possible by means of Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a radio technology that is integrated into all smartphones. Over a short distance, easy and secure data exchange is possible.

    A Bluetooth lock is characterized by the fact that it is controlled via an app on the smartphone. In order to avoid unnecessarily straining the battery life of the smartphone, nowadays only the improved Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) wireless technology is used. This reduces the energy requirements for communication without neglecting the benefits of Bluetooth in general.

    The differences between bike locks with Bluetooth are on the one hand in the style of the lock: From U-lock, folding lock to frame lock, there are many options. The scope of control in the app can also be very different. Depending on the functionality of the Bluetooth bike lock, the app offers appropriate control options.

    The security of a Bluetooth lock

    Access to Bluetooth bike locks is not easily possible. Common thieves work with bolt cutters and usually have little knowledge about Bluetooth LE technology. Bike thieves would have to become bike lock hackers.

    The use of standardized encryption methods implements the highest security requirements. It is almost impossible to get access to a Bluetooth lock.

    To hack a Bluetooth bike lock,

    ⤷ the thief must be very close to the lock,

    ⤷ he needs the individual key, which is exchanged between the bike lock and smartphone when connecting.


    He can only receive this if he is in the immediate vicinity of the initial installation of the Bluetooth bike lock.

    Combination of a frame lock with modern Bluetooth technology

    I LOCK IT combines the modern Bluetooth LE technology with the classic advantages of a frame lock. The immobilizer is an ideal relief especially for short errands. The search for the key as well as the cumbersome application of a U-Lock to the bike stand is eliminated.

    With I LOCK IT you just go, the bike lock automatically locks for you and opens as soon as you return. You do not even have to get your smartphone out of your pocket.

    In addition, Bluetooth frame locks such as I LOCK IT can also be extended with a plug-in chain so that two different locks are used. Both are completely keyless and are controlled by a smartphone app.

    Functions of the Bluetooth lock I LOCK IT

    SMART

    The intelligent bike lock opens and closes fully automatically via Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. It is not necessary to close manually, but the possibility exists at any time. As an alternative to the smartphone, there is a remote control that can be used independently to open and close I LOCK IT.

    “The automatic mode, which can be turned off, is a comfort gain, especially if you want to park the bike for small errands just briefly.” Mario Hommen, Journalist (zeit online)

    I LOCK IT APP

    You can download the I LOCK IT App for free. It supports Apple and Android systems. The I LOCK IT App turns your smartphone into a digital key. The configuration options are very extensive: setting the range for opening and closing, managing sounds, battery indicator, sharing function and much more.

    “I have been using my ilockit since the summer and am very satisfied. It is practical in everyday life. The first app version was not that great, but with each new version, the features were significantly better and it got new features every time. ” Jule A (Google Play Store)

    ALARM

    I LOCK IT immediately identifies a theft. A 110 dB alarm sounds, frightens the bike thief and thus secures your bike. In addition, the Bluetooth bike lock notifies its owner by message on the smartphone. This feature is available in Bluetooth range. Since most people park their bikes in the vicinity of the apartment, this is not a problem.

    “Every lock can be cracked with the right tools and time but both together give me a good feeling personally as it also has an alarm and informs me on the phone. As long as the range is not too big! ” TROOP (Amazon)

    EMERGENCY OPENING

    If the technology strikes for various reasons, you have the possibility to open or close I LOCK IT at any time. Based on a color code defined by you during the initial setup of I LOCK IT in the app, you always have access to the Bluetooth lock.

    “In the test, I had the impression that I was dealing with a well thought-out product. Be it unlocking with an easy-to-remember click code thanks to association with colors […] “Frederick P. (Gadget Rausch)

    Bike App: Use your smartphone for more bike safety

    To secure your bike more effectively against thieves, your smartphone can be a reliable companion. Bike apps are little helpers for everyday life that you install on your smartphone. This allows you to monitor all kinds of different metrics that give you more security and confidence. The bandwidth has now become very extensive. Apps instantly alert you with a push message on your smartphone when someone tries to steal your bike and trigger the alarm. This gives you the necessary security, even if you do not have your bike in sight.

    Important: An app alone does not protect your bike from theft, but is a supplement! Do not go without a good bike lock.

    Take advantage of the benefits of new technologies. By connecting a tracker, a smart bike lock or navigation device to your smartphone, you get real-time location information on your phone.

    Alarm apps – in case of theft

    In combination with an alarm system, you will receive an alarm message directly to your smartphone if theft is attempted. With a bike app that controls the alarm, you can directly deactivate the triggered alarm, for example, if it is a false alarm. Depending on the app provider, it is possible to set the sensitivity at which the alarm will be triggered. In a restless environment, e.g. at the supermarket, it makes sense not to raise the alarm to the highest level of sensitivity. Most of these bike racks are heavily used and there may be unintentional bumps on your bike. In addition, there is often the option of a “silent alarm” that notifies you by push message but does not trigger a loud alarm on the spot.

    Location Apps – for more security

    A pure bike app indicating the location does not exist in the form. Mostly this function is integrated in more extensive bike apps. As a rule, the location of the bike is not stored directly, but that of the smartphone (which is in the immediate vicinity of the bicycle). However, if a tracking chip is installed on the bike, this determines the location of the bike and displays it on a map. In addition, live tracking is also possible.

    Tracking Apps – always know where your bike is

    To find your bike in the event of theft, you can attach a GPS tracker to your bike and use the app to find the exact location and record the route. These bike apps in combination with a GPS tracker work with location technology. A map shows where the bike is and, if so, which route you have taken or the thief took. If you have equipped your bike with this technology, we strongly advise against going on a search yourself.

    Go to the local police, they will take the case and also take into account the GPS location. Compare the differences in functionality before buying a GPS tracker and the associated app, so your personal requirements are covered.

    A GPS Tracker alone offers very little benefit. Especially when it comes to theft protection for your bike. Equip your bike with a smart bike lock from I LOCK IT and combine the benefits of a smart bike lock and an alarm. Together with the I LOCK IT app, this results in high-quality anti-theft protection that can effectively prevent the theft of your bike at any time.

    Bike GPS Tracker: Anti-theft protection for your bike

    A secure bicycle lock is an essential means of protection against theft. But if you want to go one step further, for the Bike GPS tracker are interesting.

    Here is compact information about it and what you should consider in the topic.

    Bike GPS-solutions

    GPS stands for Global Positioning System and is a global navigation satellite system for positioning. It allows the determination of the current position in real time. Meanwhile, this method has established itself as the world’s most important location method and is widely used in navigation systems.

    With a Bike GPS Tracker, there is the possibility to locate your bike after a theft or to record the route. Bike GPS, therefore, offers useful theft prevention.

    Bike GPS tracker – how it works

    A GPS Tracker is equipped with a module called a GPS receiver to determine the current position. In addition, a GSM module is also installed (Global System for Mobile Communication). Via the mobile network, the data are exchanged. The bike GPS Tracker then communicates with you, so to speak. This is done manually, that is, you send a request and receive an answer.

    The other option is the automated version. In this case, the bike sends you GPS Tracker at a pre-defined time, e.g. once an hour, an automatic answer about the current location.

    You will then usually receive the coordinates or a Google Maps link via SMS, via an app or by e-mail.

    Range of bike GPS tracker

    The accuracy of GPS receivers and GSM modules varies from ten to one meter. However, similar to Bluetooth or WLAN, the transmitted signal can be restricted, which reduces the accuracy. This is the case, for example, with reinforced concrete walls.

    1. Integration of GPS trackers in bike locks

    The desire for a GPS tracker function is mainly due to an increased safety claim. After a bike theft, the hope is great to find the bike with the help of the tracker. But especially with higher-priced bikes, such as e-bikes, the bicycle thefts are organized and carried out very professionally. Unfortunately, a GPS tracking system is quickly identified, removed and therefore useless because your own bike can not be located. So it does not make sense to mount it on the bike but to hide it. This can be done for example in a fixed mounted frame lock, a taillight or hidden in the seat post.

    I LOCK IT classic and I LOCK IT+ are not equipped with a GPS Tracker, but still offers excellent theft prevention. Robust materials, clever accessories and an integrated alarm system make it difficult for bicycle thieves to steal your bike. In addition, with I LOCK IT you have the option of determining your position.

    Now the development continues with I LOCK IT GPS on the next level of bike safety! Securing your bike remains comfortable as usual. Now you always know where your bike is. Easy and uncomplicated – GPS tracking that works!

    2. Other possibilities of use

    With GPS trackers not only bikes can be equipped. Basically, any valuable item can be equipped with a GPS tracker. These are more multifunctional and compact then bike GPS trackers.

    Examples for protection:

    • Vehicles of any kind
    • Valuables such as suitcase
    • Children or people with dementia (but the person must agree!)

    Types of Bike GPS Tracker

    Bike GPS tracker without SIM card Bike GPS tracker with SIM card
    The GPS position is stored on an internal memoryFor tracking of your bike
    The route can be evaluated later using a software on the computerBy direct request you receive the exact location by app, by SMS / call or email
    There is no navigation possible while drivingGeofencing possible – If your bike leaves a specified area, you will be informed
    Locating your bike is not possibleThere are running costs and the handling can be more complicated
    Partial additional functions such as alarm system

    How much does a bike GPS tracker cost?

    The cost of a bike GPS tracker is usually from 120 euros upwards. In addition, depending on the choice of the GPS bike tracker, there are still monthly costs for the SIM card.

    You should pay attention to certain points when buying since quality and function differences are given depending on the model:

    • Function type (with/without SIM card)
    • Battery life: Ranges from 1 to 90 days.
    • Splash protection: Constant rain should not bother the bike GPS Tracker.
    • Geofencing: Alerts when the bike leaves a designated zone.
    • SOS emergency button: Depending on requirements, an emergency contact can be stored, which is informed when the button is pressed.

    Smart bike lock – innovative protection for your bike

    Bike safety experiences a new dimension with innovative Smart Lock functions. Your everyday bike life is more convenient – because you no longer need to search for a key. Your bike is more reliably protected against theft – technologies interlink, new safety functions are created.

    A smart bike lock is trendy. We will show you which electronic functions make your bike lock more comfortable and safer.

    Automatic locking and keyless opening

    Smart bike locks can do without the conventional key. The connection to a smartphone app opens and closes the digital bike lock. This is done either manually by pressing a button on the smartphone or directly on the lock, or fully automatically without another handle. As if by magic. Behind it is usually the Bluetooth technology which connects the smart bike lock and your smartphone reliably.

    With numerous setting options in an associated app, for example, you can adjust the distance to open and close and when to perform an automatic operation. Gain maximum comfort that is ideal for your everyday life.

    This comfortable and keyless solution as with cars is a relief for any cyclist. By controlling the smart bike lock via an app on your smartphone, you always have your digital key, and you do not even have to get it out of your pocket, depending on the lock model. One or more tattered keys in the jacket pocket are a thing of the past. Often, several bike locks can also be controlled with an app, so that all devices are operated with one device.

    Alarm through integrated motion sensors

    Another really useful extension are alarm systems that are installed directly in the bike lock. With an alarm, your bike is intelligently protected from thieves. Due to the surprise effect and the high volume of the alarm thieves are being interrupted.

    In addition, you will receive an instant notification on your smartphone about the attempted theft. So you are always informed in real-time and needless worry about your bike. If it is a false alarm, there are usually different ways to end it: directly on the lock or via the control on the smartphone. To reduce the false alarm rate, smart motion sensors are used. Some of the smart bike locks then distinguish between a genuine theft attempt due to sustained jarring and minor jarring, e.g. a ball. This Smart Lock feature helps to alert passers-by to a real theft attempt and you are only informed in case of emergency.

    Tracking – Locate your bike

    For bike lovers with a high level of safety, GPS solutions are well suited. If a GPS tracker is installed directly in the frame lock, for example, there is a high probability that the thief will not recognize it and therefore will not remove it. The location accuracy for a stolen wheel is one to ten meters. However, the quality, the battery performance and the range of functions currently vary greatly, so a comparison before buying is worthwhile.

    Combining mechanical and electronic security

    In addition, mechanical protection must not fade into the background. The choice of materials, such as hardened steel and robust plastics, meet the same high safety criteria for the smart bike lock as its classic representative. Therefore, pay attention to high-quality materials when buying a smart bike lock. The Smart Lock functions like the alarm, the GPS tracking or the automatic mode serve as additional protection and increase the comfort.

    In addition, also pay attention to the battery power. The more functions a smart bike lock has installed, the higher the requirements for battery performance. Many Smart Lock functions consume a lot of energy. Therefore, you should pay attention to long battery life and energy-saving options so that you do not lose comfort.

    Equip your bike or e-bike with a digital bike lock, increase the protection for your bike. Thieves not only have to overcome the mechanical protection, but also the electronic protection: alarm system, GPS tracker and smart networked devices make it for thieves almost impossible!

    The bike lock I LOCK IT combines many of these smart lock functions and is designed for the highest safety standards.
