The Simple ones are notifications:

  • By geofences
    Geofence alerts allow you to set up certain boundaries on a map and get a notification if your unit moves out of or into those boundaries.
  • By alarm events from your device
    They make it clear if something happened to the tracker or the unit with which it is used.
  • By trips
    Trip notifications can be used to notify you of the start/end of a trip. 
  • By towing
    Triggered when a unit moves with the engine turned off. This can be used to monitor a vehicle and detect if it is being towed away without the owner's permission.

Customized notifications include: 

  • Speeding notifications
    Сan be configured to notify you when your unit exceeds a certain speed threshold. 
  • Battery level notifications
    Can be configured to notify you when the battery charge of your device is low.
  • No message notifications

You should select the notification type “Parameter Existence”, “Alarm on parameter” or “Parameter change” and choose/set the parameter on which you want your notification to trigger.

  • Parameter Existence is the type of notification that will be triggered every time your device sends it to the system. It can help you monitor the status of your vehicle in more detail.
  • Alarm on parameter notifications  are designed to work with parameters with a boolean value (only ‘True’ or ‘False’). Such notifications will be triggered only if the specified parameter is set to ‘True’.
  • Parameter change notifications can be configured to notify the user when the value of a specific parameter changes.
