Indoor Location is a new premium feature of SOTI MobiControl that provides the real-time location of devices based on Wi-Fi positioning, allowing businesses to track their devices indoors.
The Location Dashboard offers a central view to critical information such as the number of devices in a location, including their management status and network connectivity. In addition, it allows you to configure and manage all locations in a similar manner to the existing Device Dashboard.
Indoor Location Portal
The Indoor Location Portal is where you can visually locate devices on a full-screen map view. This gives the clearest and most accurate presentation of your device activities, whether managed, unmanaged, connected or disconnected. The portal allows you to personalize the map using the map filter option and provides informative charts on all devices at your location.
As a SOTI MobiControl administrator, you can perform actions such as Play Sound, Rename, Send Script, Remote Control, Send Message or View Historical Location on a selected device. All actions can be performed from the Indoor Location Portal, which empowers device management with the most significant benefit being reduction in asset loss.
Geofences and Exclusion Zones
The indoor geofence and exclusion zone functionality allows you to create virtual zones on the map. One of its many uses is tracking devices entering and leaving these virtual zones. With this information, you can set up Signal Policies to trigger actions and notifications based on devices entering and leaving these zones. For the scenarios where you do not want to track devices in private zones such as dressing rooms or washrooms, Exclusion Zones can be drawn in a similar manner to geofences. Devices in exclusion zones are not shown on the map, and historical data is not saved for devices in these zones.
