DPL Telematics announced the release of the AssetView tracking system.
AssetView is an advanced solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of any powered or unpowered asset to improve logistics, manage inventory and curb theft, according to the company. The small, portable GPS unit is completely self-contained and may be hidden on any asset, installing in seconds.
The AssetView allows managers to remotely monitor any asset accurately from a robust, internet-based software package and mobile app, according to Los Altos, Calif.-based DPL Telematics.
The AssetView combines multiple technologies to maximize battery life while operating and remaining active in extremely low power modes, the company noted. The device is powered by three AA 1.5-volt batteries, rather than requiring constant charging or a proprietary power source. Low-power notifications remotely alert customers if the batteries get low so they know when to change them, well in advance of depletion.
The AssetView’s proprietary Adaptive Tracking technology increases its reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary. This intelligence delivers long battery life while actively alerting on curfew violation, movement or geofence breach as well as allowing the user to switch to “Recovery Mode” over the air.
“The AssetView is the first tracking solution of its kind to offer such a large combination of technologies in a simple final product, delivering long battery life without sacrificing two-way communications and real time alerts,” said Tony Nicoletti, VP of sales at DPL Telematics. “Its small size and affordable price point allow anybody to easily track nearly anything, regardless of its power source. Customers control their monthly subscription with the option to deactivate and reactivate as needed without penalty, which is ideal for seasonal or demand-based usage.”
