Vehicle Alert Descriptions

In setting up vehicle alerts, you have to select the specific type of alert. Depending on the selection, additional fields will have to be filled in to further define when an alert will fire.

Idle

The idle alert will allow you to receive an alert when a vehicle has idled continuously for longer than a specified time set by you.

  • Time(Minutes) – define the number of minutes that the vehicle has been idle before the alert will fire.

PTO

The PTO alert will allow you to receive an alert when PTO has been engaged for longer than the set threshold

  • PTO Threshold (Minutes)
  • Alert Duration (Minutes)

Speed Under

The speed under alert will allow you to receive an alert if a vehicle is traveling below a specified speed for longer than a specified duration, both of which are set by you 

  • Speed(MPH) – define the minimum speed (in miles per hour) that you want the vehicle to travel in. Always set a time allowance for this alert.
  • Time(Minute) – define the minimum time (in minutes) that the vehicle has been traveling below the set threshold before an alert is triggered. Traveling below the minimum speed beyond this time will cause the alert to fire.  This will prevent the alert from always sending unnecessary notifications when the vehicle slows down.

Speed Over

The speed over alert will allow you to receive an alert if a vehicle has been traveling over a specified speed continuously for longer than a specified time, both of which are set by you

  • Speed(MPH) – define the maximum speed (in miles per hour) that you want the vehicle to travel. Always set a time allowance for this alert.
  • Time(Minute) – define the threshold whereby high-speed travel will be tolerated. Set the minimum time (in minutes) that the vehicle has been traveling above the threshold speed before an alert is fired. Traveling above the set maximum speed beyond this time will cause the alert to fire. You can always set this to zero (0) minutes. The alert will be sent every time the vehicle goes over the set speed.

Ignition On

The ignition on alert will allow you to receive an alert when the ignition of specified vehicles is turned to on.

 

Ignition Off

The ignition off alert will allow you to receive an alert when the ignition of specified vehicles is turned to off.

 

Check Engine Light On

The check engine light on alert will allow you to receive an alert when a device detects that your dashboard check engine light is on. This alert will only work with OBDII plug-in devices and only in certain Make and Model vehicles. Check with Industrack Support if the alert is available for your vehicle.

Quick Acceleration

The quick acceleration alert will allow you to receive an alert when a device detects rapid acceleration. This is detected using an accelerometer inside the device.

Hard Braking

The hard braking alert will allow you to receive an alert when a device detects extremely rapid deceleration. This is detected using an accelerometer inside the device.

Power Disconnect

The power disconnect alert will allow you to receive an alert when a device becomes disconnected from constant power so you can address the situation.

Aggressive Cornering

The aggressive cornering alert will allow you to receive an alert when a device detects high lateral acceleration. This is detected using an accelerometer inside the device.

Geofence Leave

The Geofence exit alert will allow you to receive an alert when a vehicle exits a specified geofence 

  • Geofence – select the specific Geofence

Geofence Enter

The geofence enter alert will allow you to receive an alert when a vehicle enters a specified geofence 

  • Geofence – select the specific Geofence
