Operation Mode

In this section of the settings, you can select a suitable operation mode. The operation mode influences the battery consumption and the accuracy of positional data.

Mode

Description

Light

The mode which allows saving battery power and receiving approximate data about the location of the unit.

Standard

The mode which allows consuming battery power moderately and obtaining accurate tracks of the unit.

Custom

The mode which you can customize according to your requirements.

For the ability to select the operation mode, the Allow the user to view and select operation modes in the mobile application option should be activated for the device in the Configurator web application.

Custom mode settings

To configure a custom mode, tap the Edit button. Next, specify the required settings in the Operation mode and Filtration sections.

Operation mode

In this section, you should specify the frequency of collecting and sending positional data and, if necessary, enable the heartbeat mode.

The available settings are described below.

Setting

Description

Data collection

In this field, specify the frequency at which positional points should be generated. In the drop-down list on the right, select the unit of time (seconds or minutes). The lower the specified value, the more accurate the data. If the specified value is less than a minute, the consumption of traffic and battery power increases significantly. If the value is 0, the data is collected continuously. 

Data sending

In this field, specify the frequency at which positional data should be sent to the server. In the drop-down list on the right, select the unit of time (seconds or minutes). The lower the specified value, the higher the consumption of traffic and battery power.

Heartbeat

Activate this option to specify the frequency at which heartbeat messages should be sent to the server when the unit is not moving. Such messages allow seeing only that the unit is online, and don't contain location data. In the drop-down list, select the unit of time (seconds or minutes).

If the option is not activated, the frequency of collecting and sending data corresponds to the first two options, regardless of whether the unit is moving or not.

Filtration

In this section, you can specify the filtration conditions for messages. The filtration allows you to avoid sending redundant data to the server and reduce traffic consumption.


Messages are filtered only when they are received by means of GPS. If the location is determined by cell towers or Wi-Fi, the messages contain zero values of speed, course, number of satellites, and the inaccuracy can exceed 2000 metres, therefore such messages are not filtered. 

The filtration conditions are applied in accordance with the OR principle, that is, the positional point is sent to the server when any of the selected conditions is fulfilled.

Filtration condition

Description

Max inaccuracy, m

Activate this option to specify the maximum allowed inaccuracy of positional data which should be sent to the server. If the data inaccuracy exceeds the specified value, the data is not sent.

It is not advisable to specify a value less than 10 metres because, in this case, there may not be enough positional data to get accurate tracks of the unit.

By time

Activate this option to specify a frequency at which positional points should be sent to the server. In the drop-down list, select the unit of time (seconds or minutes).

By distance, m

Activate this option to specify a distance which the unit should travel from the time of the previous message to send a new positional point.

By speed, k/h

Activate this option to specify a difference in speed between messages at which a new positional point should be sent to the server.

By change in course, degrees

Activate this option to specify a difference in course angle between messages at which a new positional point should be sent to the server.
