Geofences are limited areas or lines on a geographical map of the Earth. By using the geofences, it is possible to monitor a movement of objects in a designated area, to enter or leave the geofence, to deviate from the route, etc.
The geofences can be represented in the form of:
The geofences can be applied in designing of automation scenarios when appropriate external software modules are connected to the model. There are "Geofence enter", "Geofence leave" or "Deviation from the route" events for generation of which the geofences are used. These events may be used for creation of more complex combined events.
When the new geofence is created, it is necessary to build the geofence itself initially in the working area of the "Geofences" menu, next, to enter the information about an entity. It can be a name, a description, tags and a color of the geofence.
