Real-Time Cellular

When real-time monitoring and tracking is key, investing in powered cellular devices is the way to go. Ideal for heavy duty equipment, hybrids, vans and light duty vehicles.

  • Real-time location data
  • Trip, power, tamper, behavior
  • Utilization, diagnostics, PTO
  • Signal strength and battery charge
  • Accidents and towing status
  • EV Fleets and more

Bluetooth Gateways and Sensors

Knowing if equipment has move from truck to truck or yard to warehouse is critical to most operations but cellular options are not always cost effective. Many of our cellular devices act as Bluetooth gateways, and asset tags are small and economical enough for most pieces of equipment.

Bluetooth options provide proximity based tracking for lower value assets

  • Frequent or infrequent communication
  • Theft and loss prevention
  • Location tracking
  • Geofencing
  • Rechargeable or replaceable batteries
  • Mobile phone as gateway option

QR Code Asset Tracking

Capturing the last known location of an asset is often good enough and extremely cost effective, and also a quick and simple step for anyone with the ThingTech mobile app. A simple scan of a QR code on an trailer, generator, mower or small power tool captures where that asset is with a time stamp and who scanned it.

  • Asset management
  • Last known location
  • Multiple tag size and materials
  • Mobile phone scan
