The Fall Detection rule is a feature on the telematics platform designed to detect and notify users of potential falls or accidents. This rule utilizes advanced sensors and algorithms to monitor the movement patterns and orientation of individuals. In the event of a sudden and significant change in position or acceleration, the system identifies it as a potential fall and triggers a notification. This functionality is particularly useful in scenarios where the safety and well-being of individuals, such as elderly or vulnerable populations, need to be closely monitored. By promptly detecting falls, the system allows for immediate response and assistance, improving overall safety and providing peace of mind for caregivers and loved ones.
Also, the event component integrated into the telematics platform helps detect and monitor instances of significant vibrations or movements. The sensor measures the acceleration forces acting on a device or vehicle in multiple axes. When a substantial shake or movement is detected, the sensor triggers an event or notification. This feature has various applications, such as detecting unauthorized tampering with devices or vehicles, monitoring rough driving behaviour, or identifying impacts or collisions. By utilizing this rule, users can receive real-time alerts and take appropriate actions based on the detected vibrations or movements, ensuring security, safety, and compliance in relevant contexts.
As this rule is based on hardware configuration, there is not much to configure in the rule itself.

The platform specifics
- The "Fall detection" alert has a 30-second reset timer, meaning the alert event will not occur more often than once every 30 seconds. 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 Fall detection 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 this type 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 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.
Receive push notifications on the mobile app and web interface.
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.
To view the dates when the events were received, you can build the "Report on all events" report.
