How to set up a Geofence
Click on your vehicle in the devices menu.
This takes you to the devices page.
To setup a Geofence at the vehicles location, click on the earth symbol, which is next to the Location information.
This takes you to the following screen.
Name – The name of the company.
Radius – The default is 50 (metres), but this depends on the size of the company’s premises.
Place marker – This will display a grey circle if you tick the box, and no circle if you do not. It also will not display the name of the geofence when the vehicle is in the area if it is not ticked.
The reason for not ticking the box is if you wish to set an alarm on that area but do not want general users of the system to know you are doing it.
Then click on device association.
The default is “All devices in all groups”.
Then click on Create geofence.
This screen gives you an overview of the new geofence. You can move the geofence around if it is not quite in the right place by using the nudge arrows.
To complete the geofence creation click on the Devices tab.
Please note the geofence will not display on the Devices page until the unit next updates.
Setting up a New User
To setup a user click on the administration tab, and it will take you to the following screen.
Then click on Users, and you will be taken to a screen that displays all the current users of the system. To setup a user click on “Create a new user.”
