Why is the SM18 GPS Tracker different?
Our device differs from others in that it spends most of its time asleep. However, as it wakes every ‘x’ hour and reports its location to our servers, operating in this mode results in an extended battery life. You can, at any time, amend its reporting interval from one hour to 24 hours via your PC or the app. Should the device be unable to report a valid and precise GPS location for any reason, such as a GPS location being impossible to detect, the device will report its GSM location.
The SM18 GPS Tracker incorporates a radio transmitter with short range (around 100 to 150 metres) in a built up area, making it easier for the receiver to locate it. The transmitter emits its beacon whilst the device is stationary and has been programmed to consume very little power. Even without checking the location from a PC or via the app, this tiny pocket receiver gives you complete confidence that your device has been accurately detected. In this respect, it’s a truly remarkable piece of equipment and totally unique in its functionality.
The SM18 receiver is extremely easy to use and does not require any previous radio tracking experience. The range from the receiver to the SM18 GPS tracker is around 100 to 150 metres. Simply turn the receiver on (whilst your device is stationary) and it will indicate both a signal strength and an audio tone. Other GPS trackers currently on the market are unable to locate assets with such precision as the SM18. Whilst they may be able to track to a block of flats or a certain building, SM18’s superior functionality enables it to pinpoint a given asset with remarkable accuracy.
