Losing costly gadgets like smartphones is common now a days. It may be either by theft or misplacing. So here we have a solution which trace the gadget and give location back to you.
- User should register for the service via web portal.
- User should download and install our mobile app.
- User should make appropriate setting and give user credential.
Mobile theft or Misplaced scenario
- User will send pre configured message to his mobile to activate tracking. If thief has changed SIM of mobile the tracking will be automatically started.
- After tracking has been activated mobile starts recording geo location and sends to user as follows:
- If Internet connection is available in mobile then it sends tracking details to mobile services. User can directly login to portal and check the location of device in map.
- Otherwise location details will be sent to trusted mobile phone which is preconfigured while installing apps. These details can be entered in our portal to see location of mobile phone.

Windows Azure is easy to use as it provides comprehensive tools. Needed resources can be created with in less time. It provides all the tools (VM, Database and Mobile Services) needed for this project.
How we use Azure in our Application?
For the project we use web based portal, mobile services and database. Here is the setup. We create Windows Server Virtual Machine where we host our web portal designed in ASP.NET. As a Data store we create SQL Server. We also create Mobile Services so that mobile device can send data.
