Will the service work indoors?
No. Unlike cellular or radio signals, satellite communication requires unobstructed line of sight to the sky to communicate with overhead satellites.
What can cause interference with the satellite signal?
Common causes of blockage of a satellite signal include nearby buildings or dense foliage, such as trees. Having multiple satellite or GPS devices within close proximity can also cause interfere to GPS acquisition and/or satellite transmission.
What materials can my satellite device transmit through?
Most satellite devices are capable of transmitting through materials such as glass, plastic and fibreglass. Satellite devices cannot transmit through metal.
Can I paint my asset tracking device?
Satellite devices are able to transmit through paint as long as the paint being used is not lead based. Care needs to be taken to not obstruct other elements of the devices operation, such as solar panels.
How long does it take to send a message?
Latency will vary depending on the network your device uses. Globalstar simplex can be anywhere from a few minutes, up to 20 minutes maximum. Iridium SBD is typically in the range of 30 – 45 secs and Inmarsat IDP is typically less than 15 secs once the devices have successfully registered on their respective networks.
