Asset Gateways (AG) have a low power mode to save energy and extend battery life.
If the AG stops receiving power from the trailer 7-way it will enter sleep mode, during which it will intermittently stream location and sensor data to the Samsara Cloud.
The AG awakens when it regains power from the trailer 7-way or it is sent a software upgrade.
In the picture below, you can view when the AG is awake by looking at the green lines.
Wake on Motion
The AG45 is our latest asset tracker for the US market. A Wake on Motion feature is available with the AG45.
This feature, when activated, will enable AG45 to detect movement and automatically wake up on movement.
The device will then automatically wake up when moved for more than 2 minutes and check-in. It will also check-in when the movement stops for more than 2 minutes. You can also set up a higher check-in rate when the device is moving. This provides more visibility into your asset’s movements.
