One-year-battery-life was for example achieved with sending location information to cloud twice a day. You can maximise your Thingsee's battery life by setting up the Purpose task / sensor communication to minimum required intervals.
For example a cargo container you are tracking most likely won't change it's location very fast. Location fix twice a day might be just optimal for this case.
Thingsee architecture is designed to communicate with cloud only when necessary. Thingsee Hiberextend technology enables extreme battery life. In some cases even more than one year. It hibernates & turns off power-hungry components when they’re not needed and queues device calls on the server side.
