Geofences, geofence groups, and event rules

 

A geofence is a virtual perimeter. In GpsGate, you can create a circle, polygon, or route geofence. 

A geofence group contains one or more geofences. Geofence groups are used with event rules.

Again: event rules run on geofence groups (not individual geofences). 

Keep this in mind when naming your geofence groups - the group name is what will show in the event rule expression. A simple and descriptive name can make your customization and setup much easier!

Tip: an event rule cannot reference a geofence - only a geofence group (even if there is only one geofence in the group).

Tip: use friendly geofence group names so that your event rule alerts are easy to understand.
