Android: Add a Geofence to Your Place

Get alerted whenever your equipment starts to wander beyond its assigned perimeter.


With geofence technology, you can set up virtual perimeters around any of your locations in One-Key to build visibility to your tools, and ensure if they're spotted outside the boundaries you've set up for where they're assigned, you'll get notified.

In this article, we'll show you how to set up a geofence for one of your places using your Android-based smartphone device.

Note: The screens featured in this article may appear different than what you see on your device due to different phone manufacturers having different procedures.
