The EZ 263H / 273H are Hybrid versions of the 200 Series hardware. These devices use the mobile phone network (GPRS or NextG) where available to report data first, but when they are out of coverage areas, the device automatically switches to report through the iridium Satellite network. It will then switch back to cellular data transfer when back within coverage.
These devices feature all attributes of their parent 200 Series devices with the addition of a satellite communication module. These state of the art devices have a fully customisable set up for reporting data when out of mobile phone coverage which reduces satellite communication costs.
The 200 Series Hybrid devices are generally partnered with in vehicle and pendant SOS buttons giving users the Ultimate Lone Worker Safety Solution. It is also used by organisations with remote workers travelling out of mobile phone range as an OH&S solution for the safety of lone workers.
