Tags and Gateways

Know the location. Prevent loss. Wherever your equipment is.


In the construction industry, it’s routine to track high-value powered machinery using IoT technology. But users are still struggling to find tools, accessories and attachments on the worksite. Having blind spots on these items can result in lost productivity, lost items, asset hoarding, and high costs. Wasting time looking for things shouldn’t be part of any job description.

The challenge

  • Full-fleet tracking, asset visibility including tools, accessories and attachments
  • Last known location, time spent searching for assets
  • Asset availability in key areas/zones, hoarding
  • Awareness of under- and fully-utilized 
  • The ability to right-size jobs to reduce costs and improve efficiency

TagsThe solution

  • T-series devices are small, affordable, and have a 2-to-5 year battery life
  • Bluetooth® connection when in range of ZTR IoT gateway technology
  • Three gateway solutions — Equipment, Fixed, Mobile
  • Fixed Gateways are ideal for key asset inventory tracking  
  • M7-equipped assets function as Equipment Gateways to strengthen coverage
  • A Mobile Gateway is available for smartphones to survey jobs or asset location
  • Integrated accelerometer tracks motion, provides insight on asset utilization
  • Rugged devices with shock absorption, plus C1D1 and IP66/67 rating for capable operation in wet, dirty and dusty locations, or where fire/explosion hazards exist

The result

T-Series asset tags 

The ZTR T-Series devices (T15 and T25) are quick and easy to mount on most assets using flexible mounting options (screws, cable ties, adhesive). With integrated accelerometers that track motion and provide insight on asset utilization, the tags help you improve efficiency. They’re easily activated with a smartphone and connect automatically via Bluetooth to the ONE i3 cloud service so you can see the information and insights you need.

ZTR gateways

Equipment Gateway

While the primary purpose of the M7-Series telematics product is to monitor equipment, it also acts as equipment gateways to extend network coverage so you can get tool and attachment visibility outside key tracking locations.

  • Locates assets with a coverage area of approximately 0.5 acre / 2000 m2
  • Offloads motion hours from tags

Fixed Gateway

Fixed gateways act as stationary jobsite monitors. They provide information on assets or equipment that enter the monitoring area and can provide a constant reporting stream when mobile gateways aren’t in the immediate area.

  • Locates assets within its coverage area 
  • Ability to locate tags indoors
  • Offloads motion hours from tags

Mobile Gateway

A mobile gateway, available for smartphones, lets people survey tagged assets either in a specific area or along a worksite using their phone. 

  • Quickly surveys tags in areas of your rental yard, shop, or jobsite, and pins their location to ONE i3
  • Ability to locate tags indoors
