IoT Telematics company SkyBitz has added a wireless door sensor to its SmartTrailer range of products.

Virginia-based SkyBItz is one of the leaders in truck and trailer telematics in the US. The company also sells a telematics system for chassis.


Its latest product is the “WMS Wireless Door Sensor” for customers currently tracking and monitoring their assets within the SkyBitz SmartTrailer Ecosystem. Adding a door sensor can generate data on whether a trailer has been loaded or unloaded (or is being used for storage) , as well as helping to reduce load theft.


The company said: “The new Wireless Door Sensor expands the SkyBitz SmartTrailer system of sensors that report actionable data from their asset management devices to the SkyBitz InSight platform and TMS integrations. The sensor provides real-time notifications of door open and close events, either at specified landmarks or anywhere other than a specified landmark. Now customers can address common liability issues associated with managing remote trailers, containers, and cargo such as unauthorized use or theft. Plus, in conjunction with TMS data, customers can know precisely when a trailer loading event has been completed”.


“With the release of the Wireless Door Sensor, our commitment to delivering advanced and secure data intelligence solutions to our customers continues” said Henry Popplewell, SkyBitz President. “Our team of engineers and product managers work closely with customers to address gaps in their operation. This is one of those innovations that will quickly impact their bottom line.”


The wireless door sensor can be installed in as little as ten minutes, and customers can confirm its operation using the SkyBitz Tools mobile application. It is compatible with the SkyBitz GXT5002C, and sends data through the SkyBitz portal, with real-time notifications via text or email as required.
