We developed the M5 SMM (Status Reporting Module) for optimal management of the operating status of the M5 Traffic monitoring system. It is designed for permanent monitoring of stationary traffic data sites.

It alerts users of possible service interruptions or other status information, such as the remaining memory on the compact flash card or USB stick.

Additionally, it provides effective protection against vandalism by registering events in the system with various sensors. The sensors monitor the battery or mains power, operational status of the M5 Speed, and the number of stored images. A seismic detector reliably registers attacks on the location and sends a message to pre-set security services. Fire detectors and door contacts can be added optionally.

You can query the status of the system at any time via a GSM-supported message or have it sent to you.


  • Reduction of downtime, because faults are immediately recognized, recorded and reported.
  • Optimal utilization - the financial benefit is obvious - saving or reducing operating and personnel costs by optimizing travel and maintenance times for the operating personnel.
  • Constant control and monitoring of the location.
