New feature added on the web application: Geo-fencing!

Terracom participated at Web Summit 2017, the largest tech conference in the world, held from 7th to the 9th November 2017 at the Feira Internacional de Lisboa and Meo Arena in Lisbon, Portugal.

Our team is constantly working on further upgrading the system capabilities; we are excited to present our latest addition on the web application, Geo-fencing feature!

Using Geo-fencing, the Monitoring Center can be informed of whether a Checkpoint is scanned by the Lone Worker within its pre-defined area or not!

You can manage Geo-fencing for some checkpoint by following the steps below:

 Login to the Web Application 
 Navigate to Company > Check Points
 Select the target checkpoint from the list of available checkpoints, and press the "Edit" link
 Insert the "Latitude" and "Longitude" values (in order to define where the checkpoint will be physically placed)
 Insert the "Geofence Radius" value (in order to define the acceptable circle area for the Lone Worker location when scanning the target checkpoint)

   Note1: Radius is measured in meters.
   Note2: Various factors should be considered when setting the radius: the Lone Worker’s device location accuracy, the checkpoints' physical location (surroundings, buildings, terrain..) etc - so you may have to tune this value accordingly!
 Check the "Geofence Enabled" checkbox
 Finally, press on "Confirm" button

Geo-fencing on the target checkpoint has been set-up! Now, every time a Lone Worker scans it, you can check whether the

Lone Worker was within or out of the defined area! This can be seen on the Events Browser:

 Select the target checkpoint Scan Event from the Events panel 
 Press on "View Details" button, to open a pop-up screen with details about the target Event
 Field "Geofence Status" will display one of the following values:
       - Within Range (if the Lone Worker location was within the set radius of the checkpoint scanned)
       - Out of Range (if the Lone Worker location was out of the radius of the checkpoint scanned)
       - Disabled (if Geo-fencing for the checkpoint scanned is disabled) 

We hope that you will enjoy Geo-fencing!
