Configuring AIDC Mobile Device Profile Advanced Settings

You can configure GPS reporting, geofence areas, time zone settings, and update restrictions for your AIDC devices from a mobile device profile.

ClosedLocation Based Services

Location-based services allow you to manage GPS statistics collection when your AIDC devices have GPS capabilities and a phone. Configure the following options:

Enable location-based services

Enables GPS reporting for devices.

Reporting interval

Determines how often the device reports its GPS statistics.

Report location using cell towers

Uses information from nearby cell towers to establish the location of the device.

Report location using GPS

Uses GPS coordinates to establish the location of the device.

GPS acquisition timeout

Determines how often the device checks its GPS coordinates.

Prompt user to initiate GPS acquisition

Asks the mobile device user if Avalanche should be allowed to collect and report location-based data. This prompt will appear when the Enabler is launched.

Notify user _ consecutive GPS failures

Provides a notification to the mobile device user after the device has failed to acquire GPS coordinates the specified number of times.

ClosedGeofence Areas

A geofence is a virtual perimeter defined by GPS coordinates. Geofence areas are displayed when you use the Locate function to locate your devices on the map. When you configure a geofence area and define it as the Home area, Avalanche can generate an alert when devices report a GPS position that is outside of the defined area.

Smart device geofence areas are created and controlled through the Compliance Payload. To configure for smart devices, see Compliance Payload (Android/iOS)

To configure a geofence area:

1.From the Profiles tab, click the name of the profile you want to configure.
The Mobile Device Profile Details page appears.

2.Click Edit.

3.In the Geofence Areas panel, click New.
The Add Geofence dialog box appears.

4.Type a name for the area in the Name text box.

5.If you want generate an alert when the device leaves the geofence area, enable the Home check box.

6.Enter the start and end latitude and longitude for the geofence. The start point should be the Southwest corner of your area, and the end point should be the Northeast.

7.Click Save.
The area is added to the list.

ClosedRegional Settings

You can set the region for your AIDC devices from a mobile device profile.

To change the regional settings of a mobile device profile:

1.From the Profiles tab, click the name of the mobile device profile you want to configure.
The Mobile Device Profile Details page appears.

2.Enable the Manage regional settings check box and select the region from the drop-down list.

3.Save your changes.

ClosedTime Zone Settings

You can set the time zone for your AIDC devices from a mobile device profile.

To change the time zone of a mobile device profile:

1.From the Profiles tab, click the name of the mobile device profile you want to configure.
The Mobile Device Profile Details page appears.

2.Enable the Manage time zone check box and select the time zone from the drop-down list.

3.Save your changes.

ClosedUpdate Restrictions

For more control over bandwidth usage, restrict device-to-server updates. When device-to-server updates are restricted, the AIDC devices are not allowed to communicate with Avalanche.

To create an update restriction:

1.From the Profiles tab, click the name of the AIDC mobile device profile you want to configure.
The Mobile Device Profile Details page appears.

2.In the Update Restrictions panel, click Add.
The New Update Restrictions Window dialog box appears.

3.Select the start time and duration (in minutes) of the restriction window, and enable the boxes for the days you want the restriction to apply.

Restrictions are scheduled using a 24-hour clock. If you create a window where the start time is later than the end time, the window will continue to the end time on the following day. For example, if you scheduled a window for Saturday that starts at 20:00 and ends at 10:00, it would run from Saturday 20:00 until Sunday 10:00.

4.Save your changes.
