Adding devices to GpsGate
Configure your device to report to GpsGate
The first step is to configure your device to forward the data to the GpsGate platform.
Add the device into an application
The second step is to add the device to an application. There are multiple ways of doing this depending on your current situation:
If it's the first device you add to your application, you will be prompted by the assistant to choose an option.
Second device and more
If you want to add your second device (or if you prefer to skip the first device assistant), follow these steps:
1. Click on + Device
2. Select your device model from the list:
3. Enter the IMEI number or select it from the list.
Device not yet reporting
If you selected a device brand that is not yet reporting to the platform (for instance, if you didn't follow the step 1 above), in that case you have to enter the Device ID / IMEI number manually:
Device already reporting
If your device is connected to the platform, when selecting the right model, you will see the available device's connection/s.
Select the device from the list. Use the device ID or IMEI as a reference:
Note: phone number is an optional parameter. Necessary if you will use it to send SMS commands to the devices from the GpsGate platform. Read more about this possibility here.
