Teltonika GH5200 - Autonomous personal tracker
Lone Worker Badge Plus is an autonomous tracker equipped with positioning systems (GNSS), mobile connectivity (GSM) and Bluetooth 4.0 + LE. It replaces the basic functions of a mobile phone. To ensure smooth operation, it is necessary to purchase a standard SIM card of the size "microSIM" with the support of voice and data transmission. The monitor is equipped with a battery capacity of 1050 mAh, sensors, GNSS receiver and other RF modules. It offers high-quality voice communication, device location information and several premium features.
This unique device can serve as a security element for monitoring valuable items, supplies, and most of all, to ensure the safety of regular people or employees in the workplace, especially when performing risky occupations without the possibility of direct supervision. These are, for example, maintenance workers, employees working outside standard working hours or rescue services, it can also be used by climbers, nursing homes and more.
Description of functions:
The main panel consists of a total of five programmable buttons. The keys labeled 1, 2 , 3 can be used as a replacement for speed dialing preset phone numbers. There is also a button marked (!). This is an alarm that can be used to send GPS coordinates with customized text, either in the form of an SMS message or by sending data to an external cloud storage (server). In extreme cases, it can be used as an emergency call button.
In addition to two-way communication and alarm, other very useful functions can be utilized as well, such as Action on call, MAN-down, Geofence, on Demand Tracking, Over-speeding, No movement Event and others.
The GPS system is extended by the Geofence function. These are pre-configured areas of a selected distance, where the device monitors the entry / exit of a given zone or inter-zone transitions. The device contains I / O, which is used to monitor, for example, battery status, GNSS status, GPRS signal strength, temperature, humidity and other variables. Based on the collection of data of these quantities and subsequent analysis, certain measures can be taken. The tracker can also collect information from associated BLE sensors and then store this data in appropriate repositories.
With Action on call, you can find out information about the status of the device or information about its position by simply ringing the tracker. The tracker sends the exact GPS coordinates to the caller's phone number in the form of an SMS, even with a link to the graphic location in Google maps.
Built-in sensors allow you to monitor whether the device is in a vertical or horizontal position. When changing the angle (rotation), the Man-down function can be triggered, which detects whether the person equipped with the tracker fell and can’t get up, thus preventing the worst in the event of an accident. The tracker can be set to monitor the movement or stationary nature of the device and then alert an authorized person when the device or object on which the tracker is placed on is set in motion. The tracker can measure movement speed using the Over speeding function. The corresponding warning (action) is triggered when the set speed limit is exceeded.
The method of information transfer can be immediate, we will receive a response in the form of an SMS or the data and events that we monitor are stored in the internal storage, or we use an external cloud server or a combination of all these methods.
The device is managed via SMS messages or with the help of the Teltonika configurator. The device is either connected to the PC via the microUSB port or wirelessly using the built-in Bluetooth. Updating the FW device is very easy to use and can be done in several ways. You can use either FOTA, Web configurator (USB / BT) or Teltonika Mobile App.
Teltonika has created a thematic video on the current situation with COVID-19. It describes one of the possibilities of using the GH5200 tracker in companies, where through a combination of supported technologies they can monitor the social distance of individual employees by mapping their exact location. In the event of a violation of the defined personal radius, the device is able to audibly warn the employee that he stepped closer than the recommended social distance guidelines allow.
