Detailed list of each Alert and what it pertains to:
Idling – alerts when vehicle idles longer than the threshold set in the Account Settings
Geofence – alerts when drivers enter and exit Geofences (marked locations). Alert can be set for all Geofences on the account, or only for specific Geofences.
Speeding – alerts when device exceeds the Speed Limit set in the Account Settings. Devices must be enabled to send speeding alerts in the Alert Settings of the Devices section.
Offline – alerts when devices stop reporting. Devices must be enabled to send offline alerts in the Alert Settings of the Devices section.
After Hours – alerts when a vehicle moves outside of normal working hours, defined by a custom schedule that you set. (Created in the “Schedules” link under Settings and then assigned to vehicles in the Devices section.) Devices must also be enabled to send After Hours alerts in the Alert Settings of the Devices section and both the User Time Zone and Device Time Zone must be set.
Maintenance – alerts when a Maintenance task is Pending. Will send alert again for the same task if it has not been marked as Completed before it is due. (Past due alert)
Geofence Speeding – alerts when a device exceeds a specific speed limit set for a Geofence
Low Battery – alerts when the vehicle battery has dropped below 11.5 volts, or when the internal battery of an asset tracking device is low
Device Unplugged (plug-in devices only) – alerts when the device is removed from the OBD II port. Triggers immediately
Sensors – triggered when sensor threshold is reached. (For example, exceeding a maximum temperature.)
Aggression – alerts when the device detects a hard braking or rapid acceleration event.
Hard braking = decrease of 8 or more mph per second
Rapid Acceleration = increase of 6 or more mph per second
First Movement – alerts the first movement of the day (after 12am). Can be set to “always send” or only send if the first movement is after a specific start time that you set (alerting to drivers that start late). Devices must be enabled to send first movement alerts in the Alert Settings of the Devices section.
Engine Code (plug-in devices only) – alerts for active diagnostic codes showing in the vehicle
Battery Disconnected – alerts to when an asset tracking device is disconnected from an external power source
Stop Duration – alerts when the vehicle has been stopped for longer than the threshold that you set. This needs to be used in conjunction with an Operating Hours schedule so that alerts will not be triggered when the vehicle is not in use. Both the User Time Zone and Device Time Zone must also be set.
Destination Arrival – if you have sent a driver a destination through the Destinations feature in the Locations tab, alerts you when the driver has arrived
Driver Not Assigned (Key readers only) – alerts to trips in which no driver was assigned using a key fob (driver did not swipe in)
