Switching operating modes in Unit/Spy autonomous trackers
To switch the GPS tracker operating modes, go to the object menu (1) - the button for setting the tracking modes (2)
In the Tracking mode settings menu, you can check which mode your device is currently in (3). The information will be displayed as soon as the device gets connected. After the name is updated, the current operating mode will be indicated (4) with a description of the data acquisition and transmission settings (5). In the tracking mode settings block, you can change the tracking mode (6) and send new settings (7) to the device.
Description of operating modes
The tracker captures and transmits the coordinate in motion and at parking lots. The minimum interval for taking and sending coordinates is 10 seconds, the maximum is 3600 seconds. The location of the object is determined by GPS and LBS (base stations of the telecom operator), after which the data is displayed in the mobile application or on a computer (web access).
On the move
The tracker captures and transmits the coordinate in motion. When the object stops, the device goes to sleep to save battery power and to prevent GPS/GSM scanners from detecting the device. The interval after which the device goes to sleep is specified in the term Sleep Timeout. The minimum value is 120 seconds and the maximum value is 600 seconds.
The mode in which the tracker is in deep sleep and communicates at a specified interval. In this mode, it is impossible to determine the location of GPS/GSM scanners. The minimum wake-up interval is 10 minutes, the maximum is 24 hours. In the interval mode, the device wakes up at the specified interval, determines the location, and goes to sleep. Online time - the time when the device is online and can receive new commands and respond to requests. The minimum online time is 120 seconds and the maximum is 600 seconds.
This mode allows you to monitor the location of an object at a precisely specified time. The tracker is in sleep mode, at the specified time it wakes up, sends the coordinates, and goes back to sleep. You can set from 1 to 3 times per day. The wake-up schedule is specified in the hour/minute format. Online time is the time when the device is online and can receive new commands and respond to requests. The minimum online time is 120 seconds and the maximum is 600 seconds.
If you do not find the desired operating mode in the list of proposed settings, you can create an individual one. To do this, you need to familiarize yourself with the setup instructions (see the documentation section in the required GPS tracker model). Individual settings can be performed by: setting up data via cable through the configurator on a PC sending an SMS command to the device sending a GPRS command from the software
