Send commands to your devices using the mobile interface

Now is possible to send commands to your devices (using Template Commands) from the mobile interface. See in this article how you can achieve this.


Real life usage

Here there are some examples where this feature can be useful:

  • You find out if your car is stolen.
  • You can look in the mobile GUI where it is.
  • You can immobilize the vehicle so that it can not be started when the robber wants to use it next time.
  • You can tell the police where your stolen vehicle is.
  • You may want to modify some parameters of your devices “on the go” without having to login to the Vehicle Tracker for Desktop.
  • You may want to start a device from the mobile GUI quickly.
