Interested to know how to do geo-fencing with M2X.
Can we declare fences either radius based or polygon based inside the location field of a stream. Example: I build a lat/long for a location in the stream and my mobile device is sending it's lat/long every 5 seconds or 5 minutes. If I build a trigger of let's say 500 ft, it would send out a notification.
Can this be done now or in a future version M2X?
A.Geo-fencing is on our roadmap, but we can't provide an exact timeframe for implementation.
M2X has a variety of location features. The current location for each M2X Device can be updated using the Update Device Location endpoint. You can get a devices location history via the Read Device Location History endpoint. And you can search for devices contained within a geofence using the Search Devices endpoint with the Location Filter Options.
We also have quite a few additional geofencing features on our roadmap, including allowing users to define geofences and monitor whether devices are in/out/entering/exiting a particular geofence.
What geofencing features were you looking for? Any additional detail you could provide regarding your use case would be greatly appreciated!
