sentryGPSid Now Offers Event Tracking for Races

August 1st, 2011 Comments off

Hosting some type of event or race, an open water swim or kayak race maybe?  How about a bike race?

Any event that covers a long distance is an ideal candidate to use the sentryGPSid and event-based web portal to track your racers.  Check out NYC Swim’s Manhattan Island Relays for an example of how our GPS tracking device can be used to track your next race event.

Or, if the event you are participating in isn’t using GPS to track the full field, rent one yourself to track your own progress and movement so all of your friends and family can watch as your progress along the course!

Contact our sales and rental office today to find out how you can rent a GPS tracking device for your next event!

Create up to Five Radial Geofences for each GPS Personal Location Device

January 16th, 2011 Comments off

sentryGPSid GPS tracking portal safe zone overview

With the sentryGPSid GPS tracking portal and our GL100 GPS personal tracking device, you can create up to five radial geofences (safe zones) per GPS tracking device. Each GPS device will always show a list of Zones 1 – 5, even if no zone is yet created. You can create your zones in any order. and can easily see which zones are active or inactive at any given time.
If you have more than 1 GPS personal location device associated with your account, you can switch between GPS location devices by utilizing the drop-down above the list of geofences.
Create and edit each of your radial geofences individually, but view all of your geofences for each device on one tracking map.

Creating a new GPS radial geofence

To create a new radial geofence for any of your GPS location device, simply follow the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Enter the address you wish to create the geofence around, then click the Go button.
Step 2: Enter the distance, and choose your unit of measure for the radius of the geofence, then click Go.
Step 3: Name your zone and click the Create Zone button.

Edit a GPS radial geofence

You can also easily edit your previously created and saved geofences for each GPS location device. Start by clicking the “edit” button located under the geofence which you would like to edit. Then edit the center of the location by using the drag-and-drop directions below, or edit the name or radius by entering the new information in the pop-up window. Then just remember to click the “Commit Zone Updates” button.
Hint: You can also deactive or delete any of your zones by clicking the corresponding button as well. (if you deactivate the zone, you won’t receive any alerts for breaches of that zone).

Recenter a GPS radial geofence

One of the unique features of our GPS tracking portal is the ability to “drag-and-drop” the center of your geofence on the setup map in order to recenter your geofence.
After entering the address for a new zone, or clicking “edit” in order to update a current zone, simply click on the red icon on the map that signifies the center of your zone, and hold the mouse cursor down. Now drag your mouse cursor to whatever location you wish for the center of the zone to be and release the mouse button. Now just re-save your zone!
Hint: If you switch the map to “Hybrid” view prior to starting the drag-and-drop process you can see the actual buildings and other geographical features to help ensure your GPS location device’s geofence is centered exactly where you want it.

Sentry GPS Tracking Portal Now Includes Streetview

January 1st, 2011 Comments off

GPS Tracking Map StreetviewOne of the newest features of the sentryGPSid GPS tracking portal is the integration of street views for our maps.  This enhanced capability allows you to see a street level view of your GPS personal location device’s location; so even if you have never been to the location you can know what the area looks like. You can also still see all of your GPS location points directly on the tracking map; the sample to the left shows an example of where an SOS alert was generated by our demo GPS personal location device.

In order to utilize this view, simply click on the orange person icon in the map navigation tool (reference the image to the right), and drag it to the desired location on the GPS tracking map.  You then can pan, zoom, and “walk” down the street to any location you wish.  This is a great feature for anyone using the GPS to track their kids, or an adult with Alzheimers!
