The first method is setting up the device to activate a digital input whenever a condition threshold is met; for example idle time.
The applications for this method are
- When you want a report showing whether a vehicle was idle for more than X minutes, non-accumulative.
- Idling with ignition on reports
In this example, we want an alert that will send an email when an asset has been parked with ignition on for more than 30 mins at a time, not accumulative over a time period.
For idling while the ignition is on, first go into Oemserver, search for your device and select it using the checkbox, then set a system parameter choosing Idle Monitoring with the following settings:
Go to TG and select Admin from the Top Menu and click Alerts and then select New Alert (Advanced)
This is where you can set up the name of the Alert and how the message format is set up. By using 'Tokens' you can also provide information sourced from TG in the message.
Assign the asset from the list
Under Digital Input, Change the Input number to the one you selected in oemserver. If you've renamed the input under 'Manage Assets' the new name will appear here, for eg. 'Idling'
Choose the addresses to send the alert to
On the Advanced tab, you can format the email that is sent once the alert turns off. Also make sure the 'enabled' check box is ticked.
