The theft of assets, whether vehicles, machinery or containers, Automatic geo-barrier theft detection system is the order of the day and is a headache for many companies. Thus, the detection and control of theft of machinery and vehicles is today an important issue. As far as vehicles are concerned, the statistics show us the theft of a vehicle every 4 minutes. Regarding machinery, it remains an unsolved challenge. Especially for rental companies, as observed in this ASEAMAC study.

Companies, in their constant concern about such thefts that are sometimes of high amount as this article shows, must have real solutions that help prevent them. Such thefts are usually committed at night and in the period between the end of the working day and the start of the next day (19h/7h). It is therefore necessary to have some kind of solution that allows us to:

  1. Get to know if the asset likely to be stolen has left a previously configured specific area (geo-fence).
  2. Have time discrimination to avoid false alarms during the period in which the asset is being used or transported.
  3. The geobarrera must be configured automatically when the asset arrives at a new location, avoiding the intervention of personnel in that configuration.

Since it would be tedious to have to manually create the three conditions mentioned every time an asset arrives at the work location, we have automated the whole process.Automatic geo-barrier theft detection system Thus, the platform of B’Smart fleet management automatically configures the three conditions listed above, warning when a fleet asset (machine/car/container) leaves a certain area at the previously stipulated time. This means that we can configure for example a schedule between 21 h and 8 h and a radius “X” for the entire fleet in such a way that if any of the assets leaves in that time interval of the area in question the system notifies us immediately and by SMS to the selected mobile or mobiles.


In short: if we leave a machine in any workplace, the system will create a “safety zone” automatically, being able to detect if control of theft machinery an asset leaves a certain area and notifying immediately through SMS. All this with the smallest device on the market, our GL35, with dimensions of 38X40X10mm and a non-rechargeable battery of up to 3.5 years of duration sending a geolocation per day.
