Social distancing monitoring

The rule is of the hardware-based type for the Teltonika GH5200 model.


Within the Teltonika GH5200 tracker, the hardware functionality is termed "Home zone" and "Proximity settings". This hardware configuration, combined with proximity events, provides an array of customizable settings and scenarios. The configurator offers direct access to feature parameters, granting users flexibility.

This rule integrates with the platform, acknowledging and promptly notifying users upon the occurrence of proximity events. The synergistic potential of this combination presents diverse applications. For instance, organizations adhering to predefined employee or object distancing regulations can effectively utilize this rule to fulfill monitoring requirements.

The rule proves useful in scenarios where maintaining specific proximity is paramount, such as tracking personnel working with hazardous machinery or ensuring adherence to safety protocols. Additionally, in asset management, it aids in preventing unauthorized movement or potential theft by setting proximity limits.

The configuration guides and other scenarios of usage can be found by the following links:

As this rule is based on hardware configurations, there is not much to configure in the rule itself.

Bind zone to rule:

Enables geofence rule binding.


Fill out the section if the rule needs to work only inside/outside of the selected geofences.

Map button:

Shows bound geofences on the map.


Emergency notification:

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.

Push notifications:

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.

SMS notifications:

List of recipients for SMS notifications when the event occurs.

Email notifications:

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.

The platform specifics:

  • The "Social distancing monitoring" alert has a 10-second reset timer, meaning the alert event will not occur more often than once every 10 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.
  • 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.
  • This is a dedicated rule for Teltonika GH5200 trackers, meaning only trackers of that type can be multiply selected in one rule.

Event reports

To view the dates when the events were received, you can build the "Report on all events" report.
