The Geofencing API Alert service is responsible for creating alert messages which will be sent to users via the Notifications API.

The Alert service allows the set up of alerts for:

  • The Transition between an Object and a Fence.
  • An Object exceeding the set time limit for dwelling inside a Fence.
  • Number of Objects inside a Fence has exceeded the set limit.

The Alert service contains the following generic endpoints:
