Cancelling tracking and area tracking
If you are using a TWIG handset, you can cancel tracking by using your phone’s special
application and choosing Cancel tracking/ Cancel
area tracking.
When using some other MPTP supporting
device or system, and either ?TRS or ?TRC is
activated, tracking can be cancelled by sending a ?STO message. If area tracking is activated, it can be cancelled by sending a
?TRG_0_0 message. Endless tracking is cancelled by sending a ?TRG_7_0 message.
Anchor
Anchor mode can be used to anchor TWIG
Locator to a defined position. In anchor mode,
Locator is continuously calculating its current
position and comparing it with the position it
had when the anchor mode was entered.
Anchor mode is switched to alarm mode, if the
distance between Locator and its original
position becomes more than allowed. You can
set the alarm triggering distance by defining
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
maximum allowed movements in configuration settings. For more information, see config
15: max. allowed movement in anchor mode on
page 28.
To enter the anchor mode, press and hold
down anchor button for about 5 seconds. You
can deactivate the mode by pressing the
anchor button again. Anchor mode can be
activated simultaneously with tracking and
alarm modes.
Alarm
Alarm mode is activated, when the alarm button is pressed and held down for 3 seconds. If
there is an external alarm button connected,
it can also be used to activate the alarm
mode. In the anchor mode, the alarm is activated automatically when TWIG Locator is
moved outside the defined area.
In the alarm mode, Locator is running at full
power and is ready to respond to your commands. Pressing the alarm button activates
Locator to send an SMS message and start a
voice call to the numbers you have defined in
configuration settings. See config 23-27: alarm
numbers on page 29 and config 28-32: voice call
numbers on page 29 for more information.
Once the alarm button is pressed and the
voice call is established, the call has an automatic duration of ten (10) minutes, after
which the call is stopped automatically. During
that time no new voice calls can be made
even if the alarm button is pressed again and/
or the established call is stopped manually
before ten minutes is over.
The alarm mode is automatically deactivated
if another mode is activated by a command.
You can also define automatic time-out for the
alarm mode in configuration settings, see config 17: !ind messages on page 28.
NMEA output
TWIG Locator can send position information
also as NMEA strings. NMEA, a GPS-based
data transferring standard, is used to transfer
data from Locator to PC.
15
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
NMEA mode can be activated while in any
other mode: tracking mode, anchor mode or
alarm mode. Connect Locator to PC with mini
USB cable. Activate the NMEA mode by pressing and holding down the anchor and alarm
buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. When
the mode is activated, the sending of NMEA
data is started.
If you want to leave the NMEA mode, press
and hold down the buttons again.
Messaging
SENDING AND RECEIVING MESSAGES
Position updates, tracking updates, anchor
and other alarms are transmitted as SMS
messages or via GPRS, depending on the connection mode defined in configuration settings. See more information on configuring
GPRS connection, in gprs settings on page 34.
Sending tracking updates and anchor alarms,
is automatical when the desired mode is on,
and defined conditions are fulfilled. Messages
are sent to phone numbers defined as your
16
destination numbers. See config 23-27: alarm
numbers on page 29 for more information. If
both SMS messaging and GPRS connection are
in use, messages are sent by using them
both.
You can send an update request to your Locator by using your phone’s special applications,
e.g. TWIG Navigation, or TWIG Web Finder.
When a position update request is received
via SMS, Locator automatically checks if the
sender’s phone number can be found in White
list. Requests received via GPRS are authenticated on the basis of server ID and your own
MSID defined in configuration settings. See
gprs settings on page 34 for more information.
If the sender’s phone number is stored in
White list, or if White list is empty, the phone
number is consired as valid, and position
update is sent as a reply. For more information about White list, see white list numbers on
page 33.
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
VOICE CALLING
G Series features
Voice calling enables you to listen to your
Locator. When a call starts, Locator’s microphone is activated and you can listen to what
happens within microphone’s reach e.g. other
person’s speak. Note that there is no speaker
in Locator, so transmitting voices to Locator is
not possible.
Locator G series devices include special features for timing and using accelometer. These
features help you to preset activity of your
device.
A voice call can be initiated by Locator or a
partner. If the call is initiated by Locator, the
available phone numbers are defined in voice
call numbers. See config 28-32: voice call
numbers on page 29 for more information.
If the call is coming from a partner, and automatic answer is set off, the call is automatically rejected. If the automatic answer is set
on, the phone number is automatically compared to the phone numbers stored in White
list. If the number is stored in the list, or if
White list is empty, the call is accepted. For
more information about defining automatic
answer and White list, see config 9: voice call
auto answer on page 26 and white list numbers on
page 33.
Note that to use any timer functions, Locator
device must be turned on from power key and
let to power off automatically using the power
off timer. Turning off by pressing the power
key, cancels all timer functions. In that case,
the timer won’t activate even if configurated
timelines are met. For more information on
power off timer, see config 36: power off delay on
page 31.
Once the device is off, you can turn it normally on by using the power key. Power off
timer will turn it off automatically if the mode
is not changed to another mode e.g. by connecting charger.
17
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
TIMER MODE
When timer mode has been activated on your
Locator, the device will turn on at every set
interval. When the device is on, and there are
previously actived processes e.g. tracking,
those will restart automatically. After successfull start-up, the device stays active until the
defined power off delay has passed, and the
device is automatically powered off. For more
information on power off delay, see config 36:
power off delay on page 31.¨
Upgrading software brings the timer mode
available also to Locator devices previous to G
series.
Tracking or other processes are resumed in
Timer modes only via GPRS. SMS-based
trackings are not resumed when powering on
with timers.
If there is need for location updates on SMSbased messaging, the INF messages can be
used when powering on. Or sending LOC when
the device is ON. NOTE messages that are
18
long time in operators SMS-C may not reach
device.
CHARGER ON MODE
When timer mode is activated on your Locator, (config 33: on/off timer on page 30), the
device automatically powers on and restarts
all previously activated processes on the
defined time interval. If there is a charger
connected to the device, it will stay on until
the charger is unplugged. When charger on
mode can no longer be detected, or charging
voltage is cut off, the device will be powered
off again, after the set power off delay (config
36: power off delay on page 31) has passed.
Charger on mode then overrides the timer and
g-sensor modes, and keeps the device on,
until charger is disconnected.
Upgrading software brings the charger mode
available also to Locator devices previous to G
series.
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
G-SENSOR
MAN DOWN ALERT
Using G-sensor mode requires that there is
accelerometer in your Locator unit.
The purpose of man down feature is to monitor device orientation, and launch alert if horizontal/vertical orientation is lost.
When timer mode is activate on your Locator
( config 33: on/off timer on page 30), also accelometer is used to start up the device. When the
defined accelometer parametres are met, the
device starts up, and all active processes e.g.
tracking are activated.
When turning on by sensitivity condition, the
condition must be met for the time defined in
accelerometer duration. If the condition
meets the defined time, the device is turned
on. When the device is turned on, it keeps
checking the sensitivity condition. Condition is
monitored continously and every met value
resets the power off timer, and the device
remains activated. For more information, see
config 37: accelometer sensitivity on page 31 and
config 38: accelometer duration on page 31.
- Horizontal orientation: The device is
considered to have horizontal position
when its angle from absolute lateral
orientation (device in absolute horizontal position, LED lights facing up )
differs less than than the defined man
down alert angle. The difference is
measured in degrees.
- Vertical orientation: The device is
considered to have vertical orientation when its angle from absolute
upright orientation (device in absolute vertical position, connectors facing down) differs less than the
defined man down alert angle. The
difference is measured in degrees.
Man down angle is defined in configuration
settings. See config 41: man down alert angle on
page 32 for more information.
19
TWIG LOCATOR FEATURES
You can select whether vertical or horizontal
orientation is used as a basis to which
changes in device orientation are compared.
To prevent false alarms, there is a short, configurable time delay between detected orientation shift and launching alert. During this
time the device waits for the original orientation to be restored. If this happens, alert is
not activated.
Note that man down alert feature is not in
use, when Locator is connected to charger.
STATUS INPUT
Status input feature converts external alarm
or anchor alert button, or both of them to
send ?STA message to the number defined in
Alarm number 1 field in configuration settings. Note that any other function cannot be
active at the same time with status input.
For more information on defining status input,
see config 7: ext. button status message on page 26.
20
GPS TRACE
You can store your Locator’s GPS position
information. The trace can include up to 10
000 locations, which can be read in L2U.log
file.
