The safety of the user's vehicles is ensured by the auto geofencing feature. When the vehicle is parked (fig.1), a geofence is created around it (fig.2) by the device. If the vehicle starts unexpectedly moving (for example, when it is being towed, fig.3) and crosses the boundary (fig.4), the tracker will generate a crossing alert, which is then displayed by the platform.
Set up an Auto geofencing rule to stay vigilant against any instances of unauthorized vehicle towing or theft.
All the configuration is handled by the tracker, while the platform recognizes, receives and displays the events. Auto geofencing can be customized with various scenarios, options, and sources. Each device may have its own unique features and predefined parameters that dictate the behaviour and timing of Auto geofencing. For comprehensive information, it is advisable to consult the manufacturer's documentation to properly comprehend and configure the Auto Geofencing feature.

The platform specifics
- The "Auto geofencing" alert has a 1-minute reset timer, meaning the alert event will not occur more often than once every 1 minute. If this type of event occurs in time the rule has been waiting for the reset, this event will be omitted by the platform, including the reports.
- In this rule type, users have the flexibility to select multiple trackers which they wish to receive notifications from. The only requirement is that the selected trackers must support Auto Geofence events and the feature must be integrated on the platform for given trackers. This means that users can choose multiple compatible trackers to receive notifications from, allowing them to monitor harsh driving events across various vehicles or devices in a convenient way.
- Whenever the platform identifies a hardware event of auto geofencing from a packet of tracker data with no valid coordinates in it, the platform counts the event as a valid one and displays it regardless of whether the event occurred within or outside the bound geofences (the platform geofences, not the tracker automatically created ones). The logic of the Inside/Outside radio buttons is also ignored in this case. This behaviour is due to the fact that showing a controversial event once more is better than omitting it.
is used for important events. A message on the screen and the sound signal can only be disabled by clicking on the notification. Please note, some browsers can block notification sound until user activity is recorded on the page.

Add geofence name to the notification:
Adds names of the specified geofences to the notification text. This option is available only when the "Inside" geofence binding radio button is selected on the "Settings" tab.
List of recipients for SMS notifications when the event occurs.
List of recipients for email notifications when the event occurs.
Set a schedule for when the rule will run. If your schedule indicates that the event should not run some day or time period, it will not appear as a notification in the user interface, and notifications via SMS or email will not be sent. Additionally, you can choose a default template for quick scheduling.
