Fleet Management
Programmable Events: Events can be defined to both transmit and act on complex events. For example – activating the horn and transmitting when a tanker truck activates its engine while unloading fuel at the fuel depot.
Speed restrictions:  Programmable alerts whenever the vehicle goes above/ below a pre-defined speed, to detect over hastiness and unauthorized stops.
Mileage: Ability to alert every specific number of kilometers.
Curve detection: Support for transmitting at every  turn, for better route visualization.
Motor is running while stationary: Alert when the motor is running and the vehicle is left stationary at a specified time range.
Perimeter   based    alerts:    Geo-fencing    alerts    when a vehicle is entering/ leaving a specified area at a specified time.
Fuel Measuring: Reduce your fuel costs by monitoring and measuring your driver usage  of  fuel.  Connect your Helios unit directly to the vehicle's fuel gauge or to an external accessory for measuring fuel level. This connection will enable you to compare fuel consumption with distance travelled, minimizing the risk of fuel theft or excessive consumption.
Values Monitoring: Monitoring of analog inputs to alert when voltage/ temperature are exceeding.
Driver Identification: By using different identifiers such as Dallas iButton, Remote Controls, Keypad or RF Keypad Codes, the unit sends the code of the current vehicle driver to the center.
Mileage Transmissions: Periodic mileage transmissions for the needed vehicle's maintenance.
Automated Tracking: Automatic support for vehicle tracking at specified times, without sending additional commands to the vehicle.
Complete Security System: Complete operational security system with different logic states to detect break-ins and report to the center.
Towing Detection: GPS-based detection of movement  while the system is armed, produces a towing alert to the center & can also detect a tow alert by recording the cellular antennas in its vicinity.
Low Power Warning: Warning transmission whenever the vehicle's main power goes below a predefined threshold.
Disarming Devices: Disarming devices should be available, examples are keypad and RF Keypad, remote control, and Dallas iButton.
Gradual Stop: Option to gradually stop the vehicle by sending pulses to the immobilizer or fuel pump.

Vehicle and Driver Protection
Emergency Button: Support for emergency button to invoke an immediate high-priority transmission to the center.
Accident and Harsh Braking Detector: Built-in accelerometer serves as both accident and a harsh braking detector.
Auto Lock: Support for locking/unlocking the doors whenever the motor is starting/stopping

Digital Inputs: usually used for Ignition, Emergency, Doors, Arming, and Disarming
1 Pulse Counter Input: To measure odometer pulses, or any sort of pulses generated by external devices.
Analog Inputs: (programming): Each input  can  be  programmed to be used in order to trigger transmissions under any condition, and to arm or disarm the security system.
Main power indication: A main power measurement to indicate the vehicle's battery voltage.
Canbus connection: Direct connection to the vehicle's computer using the CANBus protocol.
Odometer Support:  Support  for   digital   odometer to read its pulses and calculate the vehicle's mileage.
Pulses Width Modification: Ability to set the width and number of the lock and unlock pulses.

Cellular Connectivity: Support for GSM networks (GPRS or optional 3G), while using both the SMS channel and the data channel. Supported universal bands are 850/900/1800/1900MHz. Optional support for CDMA, HSDPA networks.
Satellite Connectivity: Using an external device, an Iridium connection may be used when out of cellular coverage.
TCP Connectivity: Support for the GPRS/1x TCP/IP networks by either staying online at all times, or coming online when a transmission is initiated.
DNS Support: Connection to a server by its host name. Backup Server: Backup host name support in case of main server has gone offline.
Encryption: Protocol encryption to provide maximum security between the vehicle and the center.
External Protocol Support: Support for external devices for 3rd party protocols, such as text terminal or RFID readers
Navigation Support: Support for external devices for navigation, such as handheld or laptop computers.
Anti-jamming: Support for a gradual stop of the vehicle if a theft transmission has failed due to communication frequencies jamming.
Compact Protocol: Less than 70 bytes per message enables very small bandwidth usage and saved communication costs.
Voice Calls: Hands-free kit to support voice call from and to the vehicle. Ability to initiate a voice call from the unit without the knowledge of the driver.

Over-The-Air commands
Firmware Upgrade: Over the air firmware upgrade to apply new features to already-installed units.
Status Requests: Ability to request the latest status of the vehicle, and receive the entire information about all the inputs, outputs, and location information.
Tracking: Option to remotely engage periodic transmissions from the unit at intervals of at least 10 seconds to 7 days.
Tracking Interval By Channel: Different transmissions intervals can be set to each communication channel used –SMS/GPRS/Roaming.
Parameters Programming: Complete programming of each and every one of the unit's parameters over the air.
Remote Arm/Disarm: Option to arm or disarm the vehicle from the center.
Output State Changing: Option to remotely activate/ deactivate different outputs, such as locking/unlocking the doors, starting/ stopping the siren, activating/ deactivating the immobilizer.
Learn Dallas/Remote Control: Remote activation  of extra Dallas iButton and Remote Control.
Mileage setting: Remote update to synchronize the unit and the vehicle internal mileage counter
Voice Call Request: Request the unit to call a specific number for a voice call to communicate with the driver and/or hear the activity inside the vehicle.
Text Messaging: Send a text message to  the  vehicle's text terminal.

Garage Mode: Special condition in which the alarm system is turned off and no  emergency  transmissions are sent. This condition is time-limited.
Internal Logging: Whenever  a  transmission  has  failed to be sent, the entire message is saved to the memory for later transmission. 15 thousand complete messages, including statuses, can be recorded this way.
Low Power Mode: Option to switch to a low power mode (up to 3mA) whenever the alarm system is armed. Best used for motorcycles.
Fully Certified: Fully certified and complies with the highest standards of the automotive industry.
Waterproof (IP65): A silicon case that gives maximum protection from water and extreme weather conditions is available.

GPS Receiver: Built in GPS receiver allows real-time tracking and on-board location-based analysis.

Mileage by GPS: Advanced algorithm to calculate the vehicle's mileage based on the GPS, without the need for any external connections to the vehicle's odometer. Last Location Saving: Saving of the vehicle's last position, in case of going out of GPS coverage.
