Solar-Powered Satellite Asset Trackers – Remote Monitoring Solution

27 Jun 2019

Asset tracking is important for a wide range of businesses. However, the manner in which you track your assets may vary according to unique needs your business has. That is why we offer a variety of solutions for your asset tracking needs, including solar-powered solutions, like the Iridium Solar Asset Tracker and SmartOne Solar Asset Tracker, that can provide continuous tracking benefits for up to ten years.

Before you choose any solar-powered satellite tracking system, though, you need to know a few things about the devices you’re considering and how useful they will be to your business. Some of the things you might want to explore are listed below.

Estimated Battery Life

Different devices have different battery life estimates. Additionally, some battery life estimates will depend on how you use your GPS device and how frequently the device reports back to you. Get the facts about battery life before you buy.

Light Conditions in Which Batteries Operate

Because solar-powered satellite asset trackers rely on sunlight exposure to operate, it’s important to understand how much sunlight your device needs to operate effectively. For instance, some can charge completely with low light levels, making them useful in remote locations where sunlight may be minimal during certain times of the year.

Reliability of the System

This is the number one consideration to keep in mind when investing in solar-powered GPS tracking devices. You want 100 percent reliability or as close to that as possible. Otherwise, the system is less beneficial to your organization.

Features and Add-Ons

Some trackers offer more features and capabilities than others. It really is as simple as that. That doesn’t mean trackers offering fewer capabilities are less beneficial to your organization. Provided, of course, they offer the specific features you need. Some of the common features to look for when choosing solar-powered asset trackers include:

  • Sleep and wake features (to help conserve battery life)
  • Location transmissions
  • Ability to schedule transmissions
  • GPS tracking
  • Alarms
  • Interval reporting schedules
  • Alarm response reporting
  • Remote access

Features like these make your tracker more useful to you and can extend the battery life of your device.

While you fully understand that your organization needs asset tracking to keep up with your assets and remain competitive in your industry, it is important to make sure you’re getting the device and system that best meets your needs.
