Geofences define places of interest, such as an office or depot, or a customer site. You can use geofencing to provide a meaningful name for a location instead of simply an address. For example, rather than seeing “Van 1 is at 25 High Street, Birmingham” you see “Van 1 is at Acme Limited” instead.
Another common use for geofences is to trigger an alert when a device enters or leaves an area, e.g. recording when a vehicle arrives at a customer site, or if a person leaves a place of safety.
Our system supports several different types of geofence including circular, rectangular, or polygonal. Some common ones, such as the London Congestion Charging Zone, are already pre-defined for you.
