The Micro Tracker is the latest addition to our range of GPS tracking devices. It is amazingly small and is perfectly suited for monitoring of vulnerable persons, packages, assets, bags and many other items.
The Micro Tracker truly compliments our range of GPS tracking devices adding a unit that is small enough to be used in ways our other larger products cannot.
It is amazingly compact and can be hidden in many everyday things and is perfectly suited for tracking and monitoring of people, packages, assets, bags and many other items that would have previously been completely inconceivable!
This maybe one of the smallest trackers available, but that doesn’t mean that it is lacking in capability in any way. At only 45 grammes the device is exceptionally light, but it features an omni-directional SiRF Star III GPS antenna and a Quad-Band GSM engine providing worldwide capability. The specialist battery saving electronics ensure that the unit is capable of a standby time of up to 120 hours. That’s actually about 5 days!
The Micro Tracker is controlled from your mobile phone, so there is no need for a server-based tracking platform with all the associated running costs. Instead this unit is directly commanded using SMS commands and phone calls, the result being real-time locations in the form of Google Maps on your mobile phone (requires data transfer network capability on your own phone).
Extra features are available on this model. It is possible to set a movement detection function to either send an alert to you when the unit is moved or alternatively set the unit to start the auto-tracking feature. The unit can be remotely programmed by SMS message to automatically track at intervals as low as every 20 seconds or as much as every 15 minutes. Each tracked message provides remaining battery life, although the device can also be programmed to send a low battery alert if required.
The device case back cover is magnetic, which makes it adaptable to different circumstances and the product is supplied with an external charger and spare rechargeable battery for swift redeployment of the Micro Tracker. If you are looking for an incredibly compact asset / package / people tracking device, rich in features, yet simple to use and at a very affordable cost, the Micro Tracker has to be the perfect solution.
How accurate is the Micro Tracker?
This will depend upon a number of factors including what type of area the tracker is located in at the time of the the location request. If there are tall buildings, because of GPS reflection off these buildings accuracy can vary. Generally the locations will be accurate within about 10 metres.
How much does the tracker cost to run?
This all depends upon how often you make a location request to the tracker. These devices send back locations by SMS, so these will charged at the standard rate for the network SIM that you have got inside the tracker. It maybe that it would be possible to sometimes get 'free' SMS packages.
Do I have to use a contract SIM card or a pay as you go SIM
Any standard size network SIM card will do as long as it is active and has credit on to send out locations.
Could the Micro Tracker be used to track a car?
The micro tracker is not waterproof, but has a magnetic case, so if placed under a vehicle waterproofing would be a consideration. It could be placed somewhere inside the car, but sometimes GPS devices inside vehicles have difficulty in maintaining a GPS satellite 'lock'.
Can I get this device on a tracking panel so that I do not have to use my mobile phone to monitor it?
Unfortunately we are not able to get this unit to work with our web-based tracking panel service.
