Cellular PSM

The Data you Need Only When you Need It

Cellular Power Saving Mode (Cellular PSM) defines the primary manner to which all GeoTraq modules operate.

The module remains in a deep sleep state +99% of the time. It only wakes based on a scheduled event such as daily, weekly, monthly, or even multiple times throughout the day, when the module leaves a predetermined geo fence, or through trigger-based events such as those listed below.

This mode of operating further minimizes power consumption ensuring the highest efficiency. GeoTraq modules can last beyond 10 years offering top of industry optimization of power.

Trigger Based Events

What are trigger based events, and how do they function within GeoTraq modules?

Sensor integration enables variable data transmission, such as temperature readings, axis displacement, moisture readings, weight/volume readings, and so much more. Through programmable trigger events, modules can be awakened from GSM Power Saving Mode to send data that can be acted upon or processed accordingly. These trigger points are based on business optimization, intelligently designed to send you only the data you want, at the precise moment you need to act on it.

THRESHOLD REACHED

Sensors are attached to the module to monitor almost any aspect of business that requires the detection, and reporting of, changing conditions. Once a sensor exceeds a threshold it can trigger an alert. These alerts indicate critical moments when human intervention is required to prevent loss or damage to assets.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Get alerts when the commercial freezer door is left open, before contents are destroyed.

Notify staff when the tank overflows because someone forgot to check the levels.

CHANGE OF STATE

Simple sensor functions can serve as a remote set of eyes and ears for any company. There are hundreds of sensors available to collect information for a seemingly limitless amount of applications. The value of being able to know the status or state of an asset can trigger important activities that save time, money, and the lifespan of equipment or inventory.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Detect humidity in a dry storage facility.

Receive alerts when an entrance gate is opened.

REMOTE VERIFICATION

Remote verification can reduce paperwork as well as dramatically increase efficiency and accessibility without sacrificing personnel. Essential for service inspections and billing discrepancies, remote verification can allow businesses to survey equipment without disrupting daily operations.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Dispatch can determine if equipment is damaged or just turned off.

Pest control technicians can eliminate constantly revisiting empty traps.

CHAIN OF CUSTODY

During transit, knowing the details of possession for assets is important to reduce liabilities and is often required by law. Periodic updates during shipment can help mitigate the loss of visibility of assets between chokepoints. A verifiable chain of custody can provide companies with a significant commercial advantage when the status and location of assets can be tracked during the entire transit period.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Track hand-off of medical equipment.

Monitor speed of transport for perishable goods.

RESOURCE OPTIMIZATION

Most projects require workflows that follow a specific sequence of events. Time and money can be wasted if required labor and materials are not synchronized to be at the right place at the right time. By tracking the location of people and materials, resources can be optimized to maximize staff and streamline business processes.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Control assembly parts on a large manufacturing campus.

Coordinate arrival of construction materials.

IoT will lead to a 15 percent productivity increase in delivery and supply chain performance.

LABOR AVOIDANCE

Many businesses require personnel to visit locations to perform a service based on a route or schedule. Labor costs, drive time, and equipment resources are often wasted if the service is not needed during the next scheduled stop. Installing sensors that provide notice that the equipment does not require labor can help avoid unnecessary labor and its associated costs.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Reduce dozens of man hours.

Stop dispatching waste collection trucks.

LOCATION OF A THING

Many businesses are expected to keep track of a high volume of assets. Often, when not in use, these items can become misplaced or lost entirely. Knowing the location of assets and making sure they are not in places where they can become damaged, mis-used, or stolen can positively impact bottom line revenue.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Prevent a carrier from being unable to find lost shipment container.

Track a vehicle missing from inventory.
