How do I set up a point alarm in Manager Classic?

Set up a point alarm to be notified when the unit moves to or from a specified point of interest (POI).

Updated over a week ago

Note: Zones and POI (Point of Interest) have been replaced by Sites. Zone Alarms have been replaced by Logistics Logging Alerts, and Site-Based Theft Alerts in the new version of Trackunit Manager.

We recommend you start using Alerts and Sites as soon as possible to get access to the latest functionalities.

Before you start: you must create a POI before you set up an alarm by point. Learn how to create POIs here
