You can connect different devices to ActiveView, and the most important devices are: standard version of the Active Track device, the Active Track Mobile application in the mobile version and the Active Guard device. To open a list of all devices, select Management → Devices in the main menu.
In this list, you can see the current state of all devices (updated automatically, without reloading the page by the user):
NOTE:Device configuration should have selected additional data.
You cannot create a new device yourself. It has to be assigned to you by an ActiveView administrator. Then you can edit or remove the device.
Every device has the following properties:
Active Track Mobile (AT Mobile) application is a universal and intuitive mobile application designed to work with smartphones with Android operating system, version at least 6.0. This product is perfect where no water resistance, shock or damage resistance is required from equipment. It is an alternative mobile solution for standard Active Track devices. As different smartphones offer various hardware functions/options, the AT Mobile app enables only those functions that are supported on the specific smartphone.
The AT Mobile application, together with the Active View platform and the OSM.Server receiver, is a tool for sending, receiving and real-time recording of events from the performed actions, such as:
Using Active View, you can:
As previously mentioned, it is necessary to connect the device to Osm.Server for the application to work correctly. The status “Online”/”Offline” indicates that the device is connected correctly/incorrectly. “Standby”/”On Patrol” application modes are related to the operation/shutdown of functions recording the behaviour of a smartphone. “On Patrol” mode means the effective working time during which the device is monitored. In this mode, the option to periodically report GPS location, monitor the device's standstill and rapid movement/impact is active.
An AV user with adminstration rights can add a new device in the following tab: “Administration”→ “Devices” →“Create device”. A new device will appear in the list on the left, while a new window with an automatically created profile of a given device will appear on the right.
Set the available options as follows:
To register a device correctly (in this case a smartphone), click on “Generate link for configuration” in the Configuration field. The QR code will appear on the screen and below the configuration code link.
In order to register a device in the AT Mobile application (after downloading from the Google Play Store and starting it), select Settings from the main screen (item 1) , then Register device (item 2), and then scan the QR number from Active View (item 3.1) or paste a link with the configuration code (item 3.2). When finished, click Accept button.
The device connection status depends on the last event sent by the device. The rules are as follows:
Clicking on the position option on an ActiveTrack details panel opens a new panel with a map showing the current location of the device.
Above the map there is a date range filter. Choose appropriate dates and click the > button to view the device’s trace from the chosen date range.
The trace is limited to number of nodes set in the user settings (the default is 100; see User settings for details). If there are more locations of the device recorded, they are filtered evenly. If you need more precision, try narrowing down the date range.
You can click on a node to see some details, like time and date, exact position, speed, etc.
You can select one or more devices and send a command to them. To do this, use Send command via OSM from the context menu or from the tools menu.
NOTE: OSM is a special software ActiveView uses to communicate with devices. List of commands find in device manual. The commands use without service code infront.
The Send command panel contains the following elements:
Removing a device does not affect past events or alarms. They are still available unchanged in the alarms browser and in the reports.
NOTE: You cannot open the details of a deleted device, so it is impossible to see its past trace from there. Events and alarms report, however, has an option to show events on a map. See Events and alarms report for details.
