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 Built-in Battery Meter for monitoring battery use and remaining life predictions
Environmental Monitoring Interface with a range of sensors such as temperature, humidity, moisture, depth, and more
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 from Telematics Guru for enhanced location-based actions and alerts.
Maximum of 100 Geofences with up to 100 points per geofence.
Impact Detection Configure impact-detection alerts when g-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold
Periodic or Movement-Based 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
Real-Time Tracking Device remains continuously connected while on the move for real-time asset tracking.*
*Optional when device is externally powered.
Run Hour Monitoring Capture run hours based on movement and/or distance traveled to understand and optimize asset utilization
Sleep Mode Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage
Theft Recovery Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval
