Do you need to control the access to the inside of a trailer or van when you transport valuable goods? Frotcom’s Door Open Sensor is your choice.
|You find out at the delivery point that part of the cargo is missing. You don’t know where, when or how it happened. The mechanical seal in the door of the semi-trailer seems to have been tampered with. You will have to indemnify your customer who is obviously quite upset.
Situations like the one described above can be very annoying and harmful to your company, not only financially but also because they undermine the customers’ trust in your business.
With Frotcom you could already track all the vehicles 24 hours a day. Now, with the Door Open Sensor you can also control the access to your vehicle’s cargo.
The Door Open Sensor is attached to the door in your van or trailer. Every time the door is opened or closed, Frotcom immediately detects it and updates the door status for that vehicle.
Additionally, you can configure Frotcom to send you a notification whenever the door is opened outside one of the permitted places. You can receive that notification by email or sms (optional) and react immediately. You will also be able to see on the map where the door was opened.
Here are some of the benefits of using the Door Open Sensor
- Act immediately
You will receive immediate alerts when the door is opened outside of the permitted areas;
- Increase quality of service offered to customers
Avoid your customers' cargo being stolen and troubled deliveries;
- Save money
By not having to replace stolen goods or indemnify your customers;
- Improve safety
In a nutshell, avoid thefts.
How it works
|Each Door Open Sensor is made up of two parts. A magnet and a switch. The magnet will be attached to the door. The switch will be attached to the door frame.
Depending on the relative position of magnet and switch, the switch will open or close. With the proper placement, this will allow the detection of the door being opened or closed
Once the switch is wired to an input of the Frotcom GPS/GPRS device, these changes will be detected and communicated to the Frotcom Data Center.
Then, Frotcom will update the door open status for that vehicle and check for alarm conditions.
