How it works?

Ports and marinas were early adopters of passive low-power radio technology for maritime security purposes, and are now reaping the benefits of new, state-of-the-art, active low-power radio solutions for tracking assets.

Smarter Technologies’ Orion Data Network asset solutions for ports and marinas are based on innovative low-power radio technology. Unlike bar codes, GPS and optics, low-power radio does not require line-of-sight for asset identification. This means that its capabilities for asset tracking, monitoring and recovery far outweigh these other solutions; low-power radio has a far longer reach, and you can identify thousands of different assets at any one time.

Real-time monitoring and intelligent data (programmed to meet your specific data intelligence needs) is coupled with instant messages and alerts direct to your mobile device, so you know where all your assets are located at any given moment. Data is exported to your tailored asset management dashboard for full visibility at any time, from anywhere in the world.

Significantly reduce asset tracking costs

In addition to tracking your most critical assets such as containers and their contents, our low-power radio solutions can be used to improve every aspect of your operations and logistics.

Asset Tracking

Smarter Technologies’ asset tracking devices can be attached to all valuable assets at ports, harbours, beaches and marinas: vehicles, containers, forklifts, cables, vessels, cargo and more. Connected to the Orion Data Network, these tags enable real-time asset tracking and on-site asset visibility.

Asset Monitoring

Not only can you monitor the location of your assets, but also ensure the safety, quality and integrity of your cargo by measuring the temperature or weight, or monitoring the way it is handled or how long it is left standing at various points in your supply chain. Our solutions allow you to track your containers and contents separately with sensors to determine whether someone has tried to tamper with your container or if it has been damaged by impact or shock as well as measuring the temperature, level or weight of the contents.

A variety of different sensors monitor conditions in real time:

  • Detect light, movement and impact
  • Assess water, gas and solid levels
  • Receive information on environmental conditions such as temperature, pressure and moisture

Asset Security

Smarter Technologies’ IoT sensor solutions secure a range of high-value assets. Our smart security solutions can also secure the perimeter of your port or marina to prevent trespassers and stop unauthorised personnel from accessing high-security areas.

In case of a breach, instant alarms are triggered directly to your phone, laptop or pager to enable immediate response.

Automating & Streamlining Port & Marina Processes

Automation is key to a modern, agile and profitable business. The increased automation that our solutions provide mitigate the risk of human error and are much faster to complete than doing tasks manually (e.g. inventory management). By automating your processes, you not only get more accurate results, but also free up the time of your key personnel for more important tasks that are directly tied to business-critical tasks.

Hazard Management

Fuel and other hazardous and dangerous materials and equipment are common in ports and marinas. In addition to tracking the material, you will doubtless want to set geofence parameters to keep them within a controlled area. All of this is easy to achieve with our smart solutions.

Port, Harbour & Beach Waste Management

Our waste and recycling units can be deployed in ports and on beaches for more efficient and cost-effective collection, reducing your organisation’s carbon footprint and keeping seagulls and other wildlife away from waste material.

Protect Your Personnel

Ports and beaches can stretch over large areas and it may sometimes be necessary for your staff to operate in remote areas or alone at night. Smarter Technologies’ panic buttons and SOS alarms can help you comply with government health and safety regulations—and potentially save lives. An added benefit can also be a reduction in your insurance premiums.
