Smarts

  • Auto-APN – Auto-APN allows the device to analyze the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware.
  • Battery Life Monitoring – Battery Meter with “Battery Low” and “Battery Critical” alert levels.
  • Geofence Alerts – The server can use device location to create geofences and alerts if an asset enters or leaves designated locations.
  • Geofence Download to Device – Geofences can be downloaded directly to the device for enhanced location-based actions and alerts. Maximum of 500 Geofences with up to 100 points per geofence.
  • Impact Detection – Configure impact-detection alerts when G-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold.
  • Intelligent Power Management – Early registration abort and location scan throttling options.
  • Periodic or Movement-Based Tracking – Configure parameters to send updates based on set time intervals or when movement occurs. Adaptive tracking technology detects when the device is on the move and increases the update rate, providing detail when you need it while conserving battery when stationary.
  • Preventative Maintenance – Set reminders based on distance traveled and run hours to reduce maintenance and repair costs.
  • Run Hour Monitoring – Capture run hours based on movement to understand and optimize asset utilization.
  • Sleep Mode – Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage.
  • Tamper Alerts – Magnetic tamper switch provides an instant alert if the device is removed from your asset.
  • Theft Recovery – Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval.
  • Tip Detection & Rotation Counting – Axis angle reporting, tip detection and rotation counting (planned).
