Asset Tracking – The Halo Plantpoint SMS Tracking System:

The Halo Plantpoint is a GPS/GSM SMS asset tracking system. It contains a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and can be powered from a DC supply up to 30volts making it ideal for cars, trucks, taxis, plant equipment and so on. It features a multi-channel high sensitivity GPS receiver Global Quad Band GSM/GPRS Engine with 3G Motion detection sensor and Lithium ion battery and will work WORLDWIDE.

The Halo PlantPoint SMS asset tracking system can be used in a number of applications, and communicates via mobile (cell) phone SMS (text) commands.

For example: you can text the unit and it will respond with unit name, latitude, longitude.

The Halo PlantPoint asset tracking system features multiple configurable geofences, meaning that if the asset the device is installed on is moved outside a predetermined radius then an SMS alert is sent to designated phone numbers. Uniquely, the system also sets a secondary geofence on ignition off. This feature is particularly important when dealing with assets that can be moved (or towed).

Halo Security offers on-line mapping. When asset tracking simply enter the coordinates you receive by SMS into our dedicated webpage and you will be shown the location of your asset in map or satellite imagery.
