Geofence = Electronic fence

Will your equipment be unattended during the week or the holidays? By setting up a geofence the management of equipment will be much easier, including when you are away. This is how it works.

With ABAX geofence you will be able to check the status of all of your equipment and tools even if you are away. Our customers can create a geographical area for where the assets are allowed to be moved, beyond that area a notice will be sent to the manager.

 What is a geofence?

The geofence is an electronic fence that you can create in the map. The geofence technology will notify you when tools, equipment or machines with our hardware installed leaves the predefined area. The equipment control will report the GPS - coordinates from the units location, if the coordinates do not match the "electronic fence" defined, you will be notified by mail or SMS.

Geofence areas allow you to create virtual fences/areas that overlay the map. This area is given a name and can then be used to help gain control of all equipment, all kinds of machines and equipment with an ABAX Equipment control unit installed can be used in reporting features or help protect your equipment in the case of theft.

Tailored to your needs

Like real fences the digital geofence may have several sizes. You define what area you need to control, for example, a house, the plant or the whole district. The technology will help you gain control over what equipment and tools are entering and leaving the pre-set area with real time GPS signals.
You will be notified when your equipment or tools are on the move, making it less likely to lose assets from a plant closed for public holidays, you will have complete control over all company equipment at all times.
