Point Access – Setting actions

One or multiple Actions can be configured to customize how a given Zone responds to a device that walks into a Geofence, crosses a Geoline™ or moves into a range of Beacon.

Open the slider menu by selecting the arrow in the top right of the map interface.
Select Set Actions + Conditions then New Action at the bottom of the slider menu to initiate a pop-up box.

The following pre-set Actions can be selected in the pop-up box to trigger when a device passes through:

  1. Message – send a system notification.
  2. URL – open a website.
  3. Custom – deliver a call back to the mobile app to allow any custom actions to be executed on the device.
