We have had a few customers who use our Driver ID Fobs and want to be alerted when the vehicle is moving but the driver forgot to use their Driver ID Fob to “sign in” to the vehicle. Either it causes them frustration when trips go unassigned to a driver, or worse yet, the vehicle may be getting stolen.
Some of our customers choose to install optional buzzers or LED’s which remind the driver until they place their keyfob on the reader to tell GPS Insight who is driving the vehicle.
But this alert may help anyone who uses GPS Insight’s DriverID Functionality.
Here’s how you set an alert:
Launch the Alerts Manager:
Create a new “Driver Login Alert”
Then change the vehicle group/vehicle, the number of minutes until the alert goes off and emails/SMS text messages the recipient, and optionally that of the vehicle in question to remind the driver him or herself:
In this case, it will continue to alert me via email every 10 minutes until the driver either logs in or the vehicle finally stops.
Tomorrow I will “forget” to log into my vehicle, and will get this alert sent twice in 6 minutes (and every 10 minutes thereafter if I don’t log in using my key fob). I’ll post that alert once I get it.
This is our 9th alert, and as usual, comes from direct customer requests.
We have a list of more which we will be bringing in 2011.
Happy New Year!
