The Oyster3 has different configurable tracking modes to best fit a variety of applications.
Additionally, if an asset is stolen, the unit can be put into Recovery Mode, where the unit will live-track with an increased update rate for a configured time period, to aid in asset recovery.
The below recordings show how to quickly and easily configure the Oyster3's update rate.
When adjusting the update rate, we must consider:
- The Application
- Battery Life
- Data Usage
- 12 Hour Heartbeats when stationary
- 2 min GPS fixes recorded during a trip
- Upload every 30 min during a trip
Trip Start/End Parameters:
- 250m of movement from stationary position required to begin a trip (small movements won't start a trip)
- Trip ends after 5 min of no movement, or if we lose GPS for 5 min.
Set Device to Periodic Tracking - 2 x Daily Heartbeat
Set Device to Scheduled uploads (i.e. 9am and 3pm daily)
Set Device to Jostle Trips (Accelerometer Mode)
Same steps as Periodic tracking, but select Jostle Trips from the dropdown
Change Upload Rate to 5 min GPS fixes, 15 min Uploads
