The small wireless device weighs around one pound and measures less than 9 inches long, 4 inches wide and 2 inches high. It quickly attaches to a barrier, such as a crash attenuator, by either strong magnets or bolts. It is activated simply by maintenance personnel scanning the unit’s QR code and then it will automatically send a real-time email as well as SMS alerts the instant an event occurs.
It can even be placed inside a traffic cone to alert site crews of disrupted traffic safety routes. Importantly, in case of theft, a unit switches to recovery mode to activate real-time tracking notifications at 30-second intervals.
The HS2X has an accelerometer for Smart Movement-based tracking. It is powered by two D-size LTC batteries with up to five years of battery life. To help with maintenance, there is a built-in battery-life meter for remote monitoring.
