The Galeo Group has released a trailer theft prevention and recovery system, consisting of a rugged tracking device and companion mobile application.
The tracking device, called Galeo Pro, features cellular LTE, GPS, Bluetooth, and an accelerometer for motion-activated alerts. Galeo Pro can be configured to send an alert when it senses motion, and depending on how it’s mounted, it can detect when a trailer door is opened.
Built with an IP69K environmental rating, Galeo Pro is a rugged outdoor tracker. This device was built for snow, dust and rain environments, and can even withstand pressure washing when a trailer is being cleaned.
The battery operates in extreme temperatures (-40 degrees Fahrenheit to 185 degrees Fahrenheit) and will last three to five years in normal operation, Galeo officials said in a press release.
Battery life is impacted by the frequency with which the device reports its position. If Galeo Pro reports its position once per day and occasionally also reports its position on demand, a customer could expect the battery to last more than five years. With lower-frequency reporting the Galeo Pro battery could last even longer, officials said.
The device is designed and manufactured in the United States, and measures 5.25 inches in length, 3.25 inches in width and 1.6 inches in height. The tracker can be installed using two M6 fasteners, or the included very high bond tape, making it easy to install on a variety of trailer types.
Galeo Pro is expected to begin shipping this fall with Verizon and FCC certifications.
