Oyster Edge Features


GNSS, Wi-Fi AP MAC Address Scanning, and Cell Tower location for indoor/outdoor asset management.

Bluetooth® Gateway

Bluetooth® 5.2 Gateway for affordable tagged asset management and sensor monitoring applications.


Cloud-Based Location Solving

Transfers the location processing workload from the device to the cloud for substantial power savings.

Rugged & Weatherproof

IP67 waterproof and dust-resistant housing for extreme durability.

Off-the-Shelf Batteries

Powered by user-replaceable, off-the-shelf 3 x AA Lithium batteries with ‘Battery Low’ and ‘Battery Critical’ alerts.

Thumbs up icon

Wire-Free Installation

Compact and concealable. Multiple installation options for covertly and easily securing the device to assets with screws, bolts, cable ties, rivets, and more. Stainless steel screws supplied.

Global Connectivity Icon

LTE-M/NB-IoT Network Roaming

Supports automatic roaming between LTE-M and NB-IoT networks with minimal delay and marginal impact on battery life or performance (roaming SIM required).

Intelligent Power Management

Optimize power consumption with Intelligent Power Management tools including built-in balanced, low-power, and ultra-low power network registration strategies, accelerometer-based location scan throttling, and more.

Flexible Configuration

Configure device parameters such as heartbeat rate, movement and accelerometer settings, and more to fit any tracking application.

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.

Sleep Mode

Stationary devices enter sleep mode until movement occurs to conserve battery life and optimize data usage.

Impact Detection

Configure impact-detection alerts when g-forces are exceeded by a user-defined threshold.

Tip Detection & Rotation Counting

Axis angle reporting, tip detection and rotation counting (planned).

Asset Utilization

Capture run hours based on movement to understand and optimize asset utilization.

Preventative Maintenance

Set reminders based on distance traveled and run hours to reduce maintenance and repair costs.

Theft Recovery

Switch to Recovery Mode in the case of theft or loss to activate real-time tracking for asset retrieval.

'Edge' vs. Traditional GPS Tracking Devices

Digital Matter’s new range of Edge battery-powered asset tracking devices utilize GNSS, Wi-Fi AP MAC Address Scanning, and Cell Tower or LoRaWAN® geolocation for indoor and outdoor asset tracking and monitoring applications.

With Edge devices, the location processing workload is now handled in the cloud. This is different from traditional GPS tracking devices, where the location processing workload is handled on-device.

By moving the location processing workload to the cloud, Edge devices are able to achieve anywhere between 5-10x the battery life of traditional GPS devices.
