Of course you want to know where your equipment is. After all, locating your tools helps you to keep costs manageable. In some cases, registration is even required by law.
But do you know how much time you lose on searching for the exact location of your equipment? Or even worse: what does it cost to order new exuipment when lost? That is now over!
Continuous location tracking
Tracking devices based on IoT (‘internet of things’) are the solution. You easily attach these small, smart ‘devices’ to your equipment yourself and you will immediately regain control. Location determination is automatic and you immediately receive a signal when material is moved or when there is a deviating location. The communication remains active under almost all circumstances. With the well-known webtool from Gereedschapbeheer.nl you can keep a close eye on things.
Our tracking solutions are a solution especially for companies where equipment often roams. In addition, the devices are often used for theft risk.
We deliver these devices
Gereedschapbeheer.nl supplies IoT-trackers for both the Sigfox network and the LoRa network*. Some of these trackers also have location determination via GPS and/or Wifi**.
* LoRa only works in the Netherlands, Sigfox devices also outside the Netherlands. Three-point measurement is only an option with LoRa (accuracy 50m); the accuracy with Sigfox is around 1000m. Sigfox devices are therefore always equipped with Wifi and/or GPS.
** With WiFi location determination, the location is found by looking up the MAC address of the nearest WiFi station in a so-called lookup table. It is not necessary for the device to connect to the WiFi station.
The trackers that Gereedschapbeheer.nl supplies are:
|These device uses the LoRa network and sends a message once an hour when the equipment is moved. If the equipment is not moved, the GB Locator sends a message once a day.|
GB BLE tag | Smart Bluetooth tag
|This Bluetooth device is small and relatively cheap; location determination and communication are provided by other hardware, such as a mobile phone or a so-called base station.|
|These trackers uses the Sigfox network, have GPS and Wifi and are rechargeable. The number of location messages is adjustable to a maximum of 1 per 10 minutes.|
SensaTag Wifi tracker
|This tracker also uses the Sigfox network and has Wifi. The number of location messages is adjustable to a maximum of 1 per 10 minutes.|
