Geofence Activity with Auxiliary Inputs

Geofenceauxinput2  Reports / Geofence Activity with Aux Inputs

allows monitoring of site visits and on-site activity of auxiliary equipment.

NOTE: You can access geofence visits from 1 September 2016 onwards. Find information on how to set up geofences here.

NOTE: To support accurate reporting when using an isolation switch, we recommend that drivers switch the ignition off, and de-activate auxiliary equipment, before shutting down the vehicle using the isolation switch.


Geofence Activity with Auxiliary Inputs enables you to monitor:

  • time, duration, and distance travelled within a geofence
  • the use of auxiliary equipment within a geofence, including count and duration of engaged periods

Advanced filtering options enable you to drill down by the metric that is important to your business:

  • number of visits
  • turnaround time on-site
  • total time on site


TIP: To support consistent reporting across all your vehicles, in particular for vehicles with several auxiliary inputs, we recommend you wire up auxiliary inputs consistently, e.g. for all sweeper vehicles, make sure Input 1 is wired up to the left brush, and Input 2 is wired up to the right brush.


Geofence Tags enable reporting based on Customer Account, Company Branch or Region, and you can monitor BOL of jobs picked up or dropped off within the geofence, e.g. at the customer site or depot.

NOTE: Tags for Account, Branch and/or Region have to be set up here before you can report on these attributes.

CSV export supports integration with internal management reports or proof of activity required for billing or disputes resolution. You can export a maximum of 15,000 visits at a time. We recommend that you adjust your selected vehicle or date range before exporting the report, if visits displayed exceed the maximum.
