Like the original Orchid™, the OrchidPLUS™ still carries a built-in SIM that utilises GPS and GSM technologies via the M2M network and still has the same pin point accuracy to locate your assets anywhere in the world.
The key upgrade to the OrchidPLUS™ is that this model comes equipped with a built in lithium-ion battery and has the capability to last 30 days once a power supply is disconnected. Perfect for assets that do not have a constant power supply, the OrchidPLUS™ has been designed to trickle charge when connected to 12v – 24v power supplies making the OrchidPLUS™ a must for trailer, RV and boat owners a like.
Size is important, so with dimensions of only 10mm thick, 41mm long and 24mm wide, this makes the OrchidPLUS™ a very discrete device for tracking.
GPS co-ordinates will be retrieved and presented so long as the Orchid™ is within range of a cell tower and a signal is able to be sent and received. Please note the signal may be difficult to retrieve if the asset is inside a building or a metal box etc. If a GPS location is not able to be retrieved at the time the GSM tower location will be provided in the interim.
The device has a 1 year warranty.
HOW IT WORKS
Activate your device through the web app. The app and Global Asset Register allow you to request the location of your asset at the simple touch of a button as well as maintain a single source of inventory of all of your valued assets at no additional cost.
Wiring the device into your asset is an easy installation. The Orchid and Orchid Plus have a set of two wires, red (positive) and black (negative) while the Orchid Switch has an extra wire which is yellow (trigger). Each device has one antenna exerting from a slim line switch board with an adhesive sticker on the loose end. The antenna must be placed as flush and straightened as possible against a hard surface, it must not be penetrated, folded, or mounted under metal.
There is a black tab included on both the Orchid Plus and Orchid Switch which needs to be removed to activate the device.
Once your serial number is registered against your device in the registrar and correctly installed it is now reading to locate using GPS and GSM technologies. Upon initial subscription please allow up to 24 hours for the activation for your device to be processed and accepted into the system.
From the date of device activation, you will receive a one year subscription included with the purchase of your device. The following year’s subscription is $1 per week.
