Unpowered Asset Gateway

Unpowered Asset Gateway

The Unpowered Asset Gateway is a wallet-sized tracker ideal for monitoring assets like intermodal containers, construction equipment, skips, light towers and other mobile assets etc. It features customisable GPS check-ins, user-replaceable AA batteries that last three to five years and a waterproof and ruggedised enclosure. This product enables increased asset visibility, theft recovery and optimised pool inventory management. It is part of Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud, enabling you to capture data that helps you run your operations more efficiently, safely and sustainably.

Affordable asset tracking

The Unpowered Asset Gateway is an affordable GPS location tracking device designed to protect mobile assets. Whether equipment is left at public construction sites or expensive equipment is leased out, the Unpowered Asset Gateway provides security and peace of mind that assets are safe and where they should be.

Detect and recover lost or stolen assets

Easy-to-use geofence alerts enable users to instantly detect and respond to theft and unauthorised use. Alerts are sent via email or SMS when assets move outside of designated areas, such as a job site or street address. Customisable ping rates allow you to configure the device to suit your needs.

Automatically compile inventory and dormancy reports

Gain complete visibility into the locations of your assets and eliminate the need for manual inventory checks. The product syncs with Samsara's Connected Operations Cloud to provide automated inventory reporting and a visual map of all of your assets in one place.

Identify unused assets to optimise inventory pools

Quickly identify assets that are unused and dormant for long periods of time. Underutilised assets can be moved to higher-demand sites or consolidated to maximise resources.

Long-lasting lithium batteries for unpowered use

With three user-replaceable Energizer L91 AA batteries, the typical battery life is between three and five years with two check-ins per day. This enables long-term monitoring of assets leased out or left on job sites for years at a time. Actual battery life may be affected by extreme temperature or cellular signal strength.

Installs in less than five minutes

With a weatherproof and water-resistant design (IP 67 and IP69K rating), the Unpowered Asset Gateway can be installed on any mobile asset in just minutes using either durable, high-strength tape or anti-theft screws.
