Digi SafeTemps: Adding and Managing Locations

A location is a place that transportation units routinely stop at for parking, maintenance, loading or unloading. These locations are mapped in order to stop and start trips to avoid falsely high or low reading alerts while product is removed or loaded onto the reefer truck. 

In order to add a new location:

  1. Log into the SafeTemps dashboard (for more detailed information on logging in, click here)
  2. First, navigate to the master level group of your organization

  3. In the group dashboard view, click on the Admin button

  4. Followed by the Manage Locations button
  5. On the Manage Locations screen, click the Add Location button
    • This is also where you would find existing locations to make edits
  6. On the following screen, you will name the location and classify the location type from the dropdown menu
  7. Find the location on the map by entering the full address in the Find Address field and clicking Find
    • For the purpose of this example, we will use an address familiar to most; 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
  8. Next, create the boundaries of the location so that the sensors recognize where to turn on and off
  9. If the boundaries of your location are unclear, toggle through the different views in the dropdown menu in the top right of the map
  10. Often times it is helpful to start with Aerial view, as it is most realistic
  11. Under Geolocation Type, Polygon will allow for more control over obscure boundaries, while Point in Circle is best for circular geolocations
  12. For the purpose of this example, we will be using Polygon type
  13. Once you have established the most appropriate view, click on Click to Edit Geofence, followed by +Create Location Geofence.
  14. Now use your cursor to click around the corners of your location to create "fence posts," and the boundaries will follow your clicks
  15. On the last fence post, double-click to finish the polygon
  16. Be sure to click Save Location Geofence before proceeding
  17. Next, we will determine which actions we want the sensors to take upon entering and exiting the location
  18. Click the On Exit tab to begin
  19. For this location, we want our trip to begin and sensor data to start when the unit leaves the facility
  20. Check the Trip Logic button to activate this feature; select Start Trip from the dropdown menu
  21. If you wish to receive a notification when the trip starts, check the Departure Notification button
  22. The three zones reflect the measurements taken in the respective zones by the sensor
  23. From our previously configured sensors, we know that Zone 1 will be a frozen product, and therefore we want to select the Set Point 0 option to choose the predetermined frozen data range
  24. Zone 2 will be a refrigerated product, so we will set this for Set Point 40 for the refrigerated data range
  25. Zone 3 is a room air sensor, for which there are no parameters, so we will turn off this data collection in order to avoid false alerts
  26. Be sure to save your progress on this tab by clicking Update On entry/On exit
  27. Next, click on the On Entry tab
  28. When the unit enters the location, the trip will be complete
  29. Therefore we want the trip to end, and the sensors to cease reporting data
  30. Click the Trip Logic box and select End Trip from the dropdown menu
  31. The three sensor zones should shut off upon entry, so we will set all three to Default to empty
  32. Save your progress in the tab by clicking Update On entry/On exit
  33. Be sure to click Update in the menu to the left of the map in order to save all changes
  34. (Optional) On the Location tab, there is an additional option to add a secondary sub-location
    • This option is to include lesser-utilized parts of the property that trucks may be idling, queuing, or parking, that may fall outside of the main property
    • If a truck is parked in this lot prior to entering the primary location or prior to leaving it, the sensors will continue to read as though the trip hasn't ended
    • This option may not be applicable for every location, but is nonetheless an option that can be helpful to prevent false alerts
