Digital Matter’s Oyster GPS features 5 years of battery life, ultra-rugged IP67 nylon glass housing, and an accelerometer for smart movement-based tracking.

Digital Matter’s battery-powered GPS device for asset tracking has been LoRaWan certified.
 
The Oyster uses the Australian firm’s LoRaWan stack, which is optimised for low-power operations and extended battery life.
 
“We developed our own LoRaWan stack, optimised specifically for low-power operations, low latency and global adaptability,” said Ken Everett, CEO and founder of Digital Matter. “Robust and flexible, owning our own stack means we are also well-positioned to adapt very quickly to updates to the LoRaWan standard. Businesses can confidently deploy the Oyster GPS knowing it has been thoroughly tested, validated and certified by the LoRa Alliance.”
 
The Oyster GPS tracking device provides location and movement history data so businesses can protect and recover their most important assets, such as equipment, vehicles, trailers and bins.
 
With energy-saving movement-based tracking parameters and sleep mode, the Oyster has up to five years of battery life on LoRaWans, and rugged IP67 nylon glass housing for durability.
 
Documentation and a flexible and open payload format make integrating and deploying the Oyster for any asset-tracking application easier, accelerating time to market and decreasing costs.
 
Tracking parameters such as heartbeat rate, accelerometer settings, after hours alerts and more are configurable over the air, simplifying large-scale IoT deployments.

With over 20 years of telematics experience, flexible integration options and a device management platform, the company supplies secure devices for many of the world’s largest tracking companies, enterprises and network operators across all verticals.
