These small, custom made collars allow for 2-way communication via the Iridium satellite network. So not only do the data come to your phone or computer but you can change settings from there as well. You can change the GPS settings, the Iridium transmission interval, the drop off date/time or you can trigger a drop off on demand.
A device without a collar can be built as light as 100 grams. Collars start at 160 grams. Battery life is customized based upon your needs and the maximum allowable device weight. We have several different battery combinations that we can use. Contact us to learn more based upon your needs.
All equipment is backed by our 12 month warranty and customer support 5 days per week as well as online tutorials, FAQs and a troubleshooting guide.

For example, you can choose to receive an email when X number of hours have elapsed since the device in question last sent data. Or you can choose to receive emails when the device has moved Y kilometers since the last time it transmitted data. Or you can choose a combination of X hours and Y kilometers that must be met to trigger an email. Or we can leave both filters blank and you will receive an email every time data are transmitted.
Data are transmitted on a "last in, first out" basis so that if there are few data transmissions or the transmit signal is lost during data transmission you always get the most recent data. All data are held in the device memory until the device is in hand and someone clears the memory.
The data transmitted includes the following: ID, date and time of positions, date and time of data transmission, GPS position, time to fix, GPS signal strength, number of satellites used to calculate the GPS position, the GPS battery voltage, the Iridium battery voltage and the temperature.
Before you deploy you set the GPS schedule, timeout and the level of precision desired. You also set the drop off date and time if the device has a drop off mechanism.
During the deployment you can transmit changes for various settings including the interval between data transmission attempts, the GPS interval, the GPS timeout, the level of GPS precision, or the date and time of the expected drop off event. In addition there is a drop now command that you can send.
