GEOFENCE SOLUTION IN THE EVENT OF PANDEMIC
One of the more advanced features of GPS trackers is the ability to create Geofence scenarios in a real-time with triggered alerts. Geofences are designated areas or zones that can be defined on a map or as a distance from the specific location. The feature may help to comply with some local vehicular traffic measures such as, road speed limit, Truck load limit,etc, been able to map such designated areas can greatly benefit private car owners, families, corporate fleet managers and business owners. All our GPS tracker models have Geofence as a standard feature.

Goods or Cargo diversion and route, Drivers shot changing fleet owners has been a major headache.Some drivers lie to their vehicles owners that they took the car to a service or the car has broken down,etc. The recent COVID-19 has officially been designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). It has gone global with cases in over 150 countries.Some countries such as Ghana implemented a swift lockdown in some part of the country and regions.In such case, how you know you are still in the allowed zone and not breaching the lockdown restriction without any headache or guesswork? And that’s where GPS tracker Geofence scenario comes into the play.
GPS tracking devices offer multiple additional functions that are just as useful as live tracking such as geofence zones. Geofences are virtual boundaries you draw on a digital map in Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) software application that is used in location-aware events and various alarms.
Geofencing can be used for setting up events and receiving notifications when a vehicle enters or leaves a predetermined area such as designated route.
Geofencing is critical for any person seeking to comply with introduced lockdown movement measures or modern business with a vehicle fleet. Plus, it allows the fleet managers to draw zones around customers’ sites, warehouses, and secure areas.
Here is how it works: When these geofences are crossed by a vehicle equipped with a GPS tracker (for instance, the new generation model FMM130), the vehicle owner, the fleet manager or any appointed person in charge will be warned with an alarm buzzer, SMS, email, LED indicator or smartphone push notification activated by tracker digital output (DOUT). The fact of a vehicle crossing the predefined geofence zone boundary is tracked in real-time by satellite GNSS.
Conveniently, you can choose when to generate an event – on zone entrance, on exit or both. The zone may have a circle or rectangular shape and, upon the demand, maximum allowed speed can be set up too.
As a private car owner and a family member, you may set up a Geofence scenario around your house which will alert you whenever the family car leaves or returns home or apply Geofence scenario for a movement radius restriction tracking if such pandemic measure has been introduced in the country.
Furthermore, it allows you to see that your teen driver has left for school on time or got home before curfew. Alternatively, geofencing an area around your teen’s school or job you will be able to see that they are arriving on time every day.
A geofence set up around your home will also alert you if someone tries to take your car once it is parked at the end of the day. You can also set geofences around work, favourite stores and other locations you commonly visit and so on.
Going even further, save yourself from multiple trips by setting up an alert around your favourite grocery store. Whenever someone is at the store you will be alerted and can text them those last-minute additions to the grocery list. Even more, you can also set geofences up around places you do not want someone in your family to go!
As a fleet manager or business owner, you can use geofences to send alerts and provide timestamps for activities such as entering or exiting job sites, arriving or leaving work, managing territories, keeping employees out of certain areas (aka “No-Go” zones).
