GPS Plant Trackers
Which Plant Tracker is the BEST choice for you? Here's a little advice to get you started....
Choosing which is the BEST Plant Tracker for your circumstances can feel a little overwhelming. Lets start with what we consider the main question.
What do you want from the GPS Plant Tracker?
Do you want LIVE GPS Tracking 24/7 365 every 30 seconds as you want to understand the vehicle use to be able to charge hire customers or make sure your plant and machinery as being used effectively? If this is the case then choose the Plant Tracker WIRED. This is because this is permanently powered from within the plant and machinery power and will always report its location.
Do you want to secure your plant and machinery against theft and increase its chances of recovery when stolen?
If this is the case then you need to consider covert options without using the power supply from within the plant or machinery. Why? Hiding space is extremely limited within items of plant or machinery. So when thieves go to steal it they will look to cut the power supply off immediately. They will then physically search the plant for wires leading to the plant Tracker. Then simply smash it up and throw it away. There is an easy way to combat this and this is to install one of the Battery Operated Plant Trackers.
All of these are compared below. We are best placed to give you advice around using these GPS Plant Trackers. The simple option is to purchase one for example the Plant Tracker 521 and it will report its location every 6 hours and then sleep. This allows you to hide this unit in many places on the plant and machinery. This will give you the best chance at recovering your stolen Plant or Machinery.
Our Plant Tracker GPS 521 gives Great GPS Tracking and it set to Report its GPS position of your Plant or Machinery every 6 hours as standard. We see typically a battery lasting up to 1 year. The Plant Tracker GPS 521 Will send you an alert when its needs charging. You simply place it onto a wireless charger pad (supplied) and leave for approximately 6 hours. This obviously depends on how low the battery is within your Plant tracker. If you don’t want to charge the device at all then you should consider either the Trailer Plant i7 or the Plant Tracker i9. The difference between our i7/i9 model and the Plant Tracker 521 in the main is that you CANNOT charge the i7 or i9 as they are FULLY SEALED.
Whats the difference between the i7 / i9 Plant Trackers and the 521 Plant Tracker?
The i7 and i9 Plant Trackers come with a few extra functions. We could really go into technical detail here but let’s keep this as simple as we can. Each time a Plant Tracker reports it position it send the data to our servers and ultimately your App or Desktop login. Then you can see where it is. Lets look at the Plant Tracker 521. If this cannot for any reason report or see its location. Then it will waiting until next time. This is like 99% of GPS Trackers BUT the i7 and i9 go a step further.
If for any reason they can’t see their location they will conduct what is called a GSM location. They use the mobile masts in the area to determine a general location an place this circle upon your map. They will then go back to sleep. THAT’S NOT ALL…… We can turn on the Radio Frequency beacon within the Plant Tracker to help the Police locate the Plant. For example if the piece of machinery is hidden within a metal container then it will always be a challenge to get a GPS signal, not impossible but more difficult. With the Radio Beacon Activated then we can in a block of containers determine which container yours is in.
There is quite a price difference between the Plant Trackers, for example the 521 and the i7 or i9, Why?
This is because of the extra technology and functions within the i7 and i9? The difference between the i7 and i is simple the battery size. So you can have it last longer. Remember though, the i7 and i9 models are sealed so if they last 5 years then that’s it. no charging and they are at the end of their life. Our most popular choice for Plant Trackers is the Trailer Tracker 521 as you can buy an optional Magnetic plate for the base and this always helps with Plant and Machinery.
