DPL launches AssetView Stealth tracking

June 17, 2024
New battery-powered, GPS-enabled system features tamper detection, wireless two-way communications, durable design, and long life.

DPL Telematics recently released the AssetView Stealth tracking system, an advanced solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of any powered or unpowered asset to improve logistics, manage inventory, and curb theft.

The small, portable GPS unit is completely self-contained and may be hidden on any asset, installing in seconds, DPL reported.

“We are excited to introduce the fourth member of our revolutionary AssetView family of devices,” DPL CEO Tony Nicoletti said in a news release. “The Stealth is the first tracking solution of its kind to offer such a large combination of technologies in a simple final product, delivering long battery life without sacrificing two-way communication and real time alerts. Coupled with intelligent device tamper detection, customers know immediately if the unit is moved along with a mapped location of the alert.

“It is a new layer of security built into an easy-to-use tracking solution for any asset to decrease loss exposure and better manage inventories.”

AssetView Stealth allows managers to remotely monitor any asset accurately from a robust, internet-based software package and mobile app. According to DPL, the unit is the first telematics product of its kind to feature:

  • No external wiring or antenna. Quick, unwired attachment to any asset in a true “hide and track” installation
  • Internal battery power. Powered by two AA lithium batteries that are customer replaceable.
  • Tamper detection. Immediate text and email alerts if the unit is removed.
  • Long battery life. Self-powered up to 10 years on daily updates, and up to 2½  years on more detailed tracking.
  • Wireless, two-way communication. Activate recovery mode or set movement alerts over the air from the software or mobile app.
  • Waterproof IP 68- and IK07-rated design. For deployment in harsh environments.
  • Tip and impact detection. Immediate notifications of potential safety issues or asset abuse.
  • Compact and completely portable. Stealthy and small, the device can be rotated between company assets and hidden easily.
  • Complete GNSS coverage. Faster, more accurate locations by utilizing all five satellite constellations.
  • Global cellular coverage. Track assets across borders.
  • Month-to-month agreement. No long-term contract. Deactivate and reactivate anytime without penalty.

AssetView combines multiple technologies to maximize battery life while operating and remaining active in low power modes. The device features immediate tamper detection, whereby it notifies via text and email alerts along with its mapped location as soon as it is removed from its place of installation. The solution helps reduce theft, prevent loss, and manage inventory, DPL said. Stealth is powered by two AA 1.5-volt batteries, rather than requiring constant charging or a proprietary power source. Low-power notifications remotely alert customers if the batteries get low so they know when to replace them.

AssetView’s proprietary TruTrace adaptive tracking technology increases the device’s reporting frequency when movement is detected and automatically reduces it when stationary. This intelligence delivers up to 2½  years of battery life for adaptive tracking, while actively alerting on curfew violation, movement, or geofence breach, as well as allowing the user to switch to “recovery mode” over the air.

“Since the AssetView Stealth has marginal install time and uses readily available AA batteries, customers can easily replace them anytime they are alerted that its power is getting low,” Nicoletti added. “Its small size and affordable price point allow anybody to easily track nearly anything, regardless of its power source.

“Customers control their monthly subscription with the option to deactivate and reactivate as needed without penalty, which is ideal for seasonal or demand-based usage.”
