The Powerful Tracking Device           flag_deutschland.gif


The compact and water-proof device can be thrown in or clicked on, quickly as the situation arises.

Up to 10 months of uninterrupted watch can be kept, thanks to a powerful 2600 mAh rechargeable battery and selectable operating modes.

The TWIG Asset Locator is a GPS/GPRS and SMS tracking and monitoring device designed to protect and locate mobile assets such as vehicles, trailers, machines and boats.

When situation on ground requires close monitoring, get GPS and TWIG Beacon position update to central station every few seconds and listen in to audio.

Fully remotely (over the air) configurable and controllable, the TWIG Asset Locator is fast to deploy and flexible to operate. It is also programmable by USB cable, including batch processing with pre-compiled configuration file (batch).
We facilitate the integration of the TWIG devices with central station systems. Optionally OTP (Online Tarcking Platform) for professionel person and asset tracking, SCADA, fleet managment,  GSM, 3G, 4G, satellite, on Google Maps, other compatible maps, database, history (csv file), geo-fences, from OTP over the air device reconfiguration/command changes, and more features,  provides a hosted turn-key solution for your requirements. Or simply locate TWIG device by selecting on a smart phone a SMS web link, opening up Google maps view.
