In this era, the occurrence of vehicle theft has become a fairly frequent problem, especially in big cities like Jakarta and Surabaya. Although the technology for car security is very sophisticated (e.g. keyless system), but there are many cases that thieves still can break into the system. Once a car was stolen, the whereabouts of the car was unknown and the thief was on the loose. The goal of this research is to overcome this problem. As a device, this research works on Raspberry Pi 3 that connected with the Raspberry Pi Camera. Using the OpenCV library, with the Haar Cascade method for face detection, and Local Binary Pattern Histogram for face recognition. The device must be connected to the internet in order to send the information using a Telegram message. The research results show the success of the device system in face-recognizing between the car owner and car thief with optimal conditions in the morning until the afternoon with the light intensity around 660 to 1000 lux, and best recognizing distance at 50 cm. The success rate for obtaining the car’s location for the outdoor condition is 100%. Even if there is a slope or an error data, it can be tolerated because the difference was not too high, about 0.1-1.0 m.
