Features & Specifications
Our EROAD Where solution comprises of two main parts; our Application and our EROAD Where Tags. Both delivering the features you need to never lose your assets again.
Finally, assets are visible
We worked with our customers when we developed EROAD Where and they all told us the same thing: we want clear visibility of all our assets on one screen. With EROAD Where you can see all your assets either in a table, or on the map view depending on your need.
No need for expensive scanners
The mobile phone app has a QR code scanner included so you can easily add your assets into EROAD Where.
Easy access to asset data
Our centralised asset database means that you have all your assets in one place, making them easy to manage. EROAD Where is hosted in the cloud so your data is well protected and mobile, just like the rest of your business.
Replace spreadsheets, with flexible and automated reporting
Replace time consuming spreadsheets with the cloud and EROAD Where, to easily access, filter and report on your assets. A single source you can trust.
Flexible and automated reporting
Filter your data the way that works for you, to easily create the information you need to make decisions.
Android or Apple? It’s OK, use your existing mobile phones to access asset or site information on the go.
EROAD Where Tags
The EROAD Where and Where Mini tags allow you to monitor assets from small tools to large mobile assets.
Built to be hidden
Black in colour and low in profile, the Where and Where Mini tags can be conveniently concealed on the underside of a trailer, the top of a portaloo, or wherever works best for your asset.
A battery to last
Up to 5+ years of having the security of knowing your assets are protected. For the larger Where tag, when the battery level is getting low, an LED light will shine on the tracker, and it will show up in your asset management status report as being in the low battery category.
Designed for the environments your assets live in
Floating in a bed of silicone, and with lithium-ion batteries, it is built to last. Our testing of the Where tag has ensured that it will survive dust, immersion in water, being dropped, and even the truck wash.
How the solution works
EROAD’s unique Mesh network is made up of Ehubo2 telematics devices in vehicles traveling around New Zealand and the EROAD Where App on your mobile phones. When you pair this with the EROAD Where Bluetooth tags, you have an affordable solution that makes asset tracking attractive for your business.
The Mesh network
All the EROAD Ehubo2 units that are driving around New Zealand, plus the EROAD Where Apps on mobile phones form the Mesh network. They are scanning every second for EROAD Where Tags. When any of them pick up a connection to a tag they will store that information and send the locations of the tags that they have picked up in 5-minute lots. Bluetooth networking transmits data via low-power radio waves.
How close does an Ehubo need to be to detect a Where tag?
The Ehubo2 will pick up a Where Tag within 70 metres, and the Where Mini Tag within 25 metres. Please note that metal objects and electrical equipment emitting strong RFs can interfere with Bluetooth or block it entirely.
The EROAD Where tag is an ideal tracking solution for larger assets which move around such as trailers, waste bins, freight cages, construction machinery and trade equipment. They have a 5+ year battery life and are incredibly durable so they can be attached to assets that are often subjected to tough environments.
