How to Use The Installer Page
Table of Contents
Devices using Direct Integration mode.
This installer page is not useful/suitable for devices using the Direct integration mode - as no device data passes through our servers. Using this page can be misleading as fields like 'Last GPS update' will not be current/updated.
This Article refers to the www.oemserver.com/Installer webpage
The Installer Page is not password protected - so installers without OEM/TG access can do a quick device check during/after an installation. Checking the following key indicators:
- Connectivity - Device Can Connect OK and is online
- GPS - is the device able to get a fix?
- External power wiring - it is powered correctly and reporting this to server.
- Ignition/IO wiring - test if the ignition and digital inputs come on/off in response to changes in input - i.e. they're wired and configured properly.

Embedding Serial Numbers in the Installer Page URL
Partners can create OEM Installer links for specific devices by creating URLs using this format:
Where XXXXXX is the 6-digit device serial number
Instead of searching for each serial manually, partners can link the specific URLs on dashboards/reports to access the relevant details quickly.
