Remote Monitoring

The Data you Need, Only When you Need It

Remotely Monitor Assets with Scheduled Reports and Trigger-Based Events.

Rather than send constant reports from an IoT device 24 hours a day that a frozen item is still cold during delivery, a prize horse is still in its stable, or the propane tank is still full; GeoTraq uses scheduled reports and trigger-based events to provide you with the data that matters most.

GeoTraq Mobile IoT Modules wake up for customizable status reports based on a schedule, such as daily, weekly, monthly, or even multiple times throughout the day.

Trigger-Based Events

GeoTraq modules implement Power Saving Mode (PSM) and Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) to minimize power consumption and maximize efficiency.

The modules are designed with an event-driven architecture that uses data from sensors to wake up the module to transmit an alert if detection, consumption, or reaction occurs. Trigger points are based on conditions, patterns or readings from sensors; they are 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 a business that requires the detection, and reporting of, changing conditions. Sensor integration enables variable data transmission, such as temperature readings, axis displacement, moisture readings, weight/volume readings, and more. Once a sensor exceeds a threshold, it can trigger an alert, indicating critical moments when action 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 and money, increasing 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 inspections and billing discrepancies, remote verification can allow businesses to survey equipment and verify personnel or supplies have arrived without disrupting daily operations.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Dispatch can determine if equipment has been utilized during service.

Reduce dozens of man-hours.

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 the 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 maintenance can help avoid unnecessary labor and its associated costs.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

Stop dispatching waste collection trucks to service vacant bins.

Pest control technicians can eliminate constantly revisiting empty traps.

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, misused, or stolen can positively impact bottom line revenue.

 

FOR EXAMPLE:

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

Track an item missing from inventory.
