Helios TT works every GSM is available and provides the essential real-time information you need to keep control of your vehicle fleets and to ensure your valued assets stay secured.


Helios the Ruler of the Sun, believed to be the "All-Seeing" - according to early Greek mythology


The most sophisticated unit for real-time fleet management and security applications.

Helios TT will help you to quickly recover your vehicle if stolen and is available with a waterproof case that gives maximum protection from wet weather conditions. This unique device can also keep track of the cellular antennas in the vicinity of the unit, and compare the antennas recorded to the ones at the time of start, and if they do not match – a Tow Alert will be transmitted. The driver gets all this without turning on the GPS and by using a very low power consumption. As a result of its inherent high durability and stability features, the Helios device is one of the top AVL systems in the market today, ensuring constant communication and an accountable long lasting performance.

Advanced components and modems- Selected Technology

Only the most advanced components are used in the manufacturing process to assemble the Helios. Each component is carefully selected and tested to create the most sophisticated and stable device for AVL. This also incudes, using cellular modems that have been authorized by the majority of leading professional operators in the world. The Helios utilizes the most advanced and sensitive GPS, including AGPS and Glonass.

The system can be custom-tailored to meet the individual needs and requirements of each business, and can be set to comply with local regulations. The web refined system is localized in 32 languages, and can be accessed from anywhere, using any kind of technological device – whether Tablet, mobile phone or PC.

The Helios system contains worldwide maps , for enabling to localize the work of the operator in every chosen region, for either local or cross-border use, an advantage that can be of great significance for fleet managers who supervise cross-border journeys of vehicles.

Worldwide use and operation- Access from anywhere – Track at any time

The Helios has already been installed in hundreds of thousands of vehicles in over 50 countries worldwide, implemented in a wide range of usages, starting with security forces vehicles through distribution trucks to leased employees vehicles.

Open events generator – Personalized and customized system

The Starcom Online Web Application will grant the user the ability to pre-set the system so that it is responsive to any customized event, whether single or multiple, specific or a combination of events. In addition the system will generate a diverse range of reports to assist in improving vehicle management efficiency and compliancy.
The system can trigger email or text message alerts either by a single event (such as excessive vehicle speed) or a combination of events (such as excessive speed in a particular area).

The Helios system is an “open” system which can be configured to integrate with other related solutions such as navigation systems or immobilizers.
Reports can be tailored to cover a number of variables such as fuel consumption, working hours, driving violations and vehicles entering or leaving designated areas.
Recordable events include accidents, speeding, unauthorized loading/unloading and alerts when a specified mileage has been exceeded.

By using Helios products:

You enjoy the easy and convenient use

of the system, due to its all-in-one solution base; its easy and simple installation; its integration with the local surroundings of the car or motorcycle; its flexibility to local needs; its compact size that includes built in antennas; its infinite applications; and its opportunities to broaden its future applications.
