The speed alarm

GPS trackers are often advertised with a large number of functions. Many different alarm signals and gadgets, but which ones are actually useful? And how do they work?

What do I need the speed alarm for?

The speed alarm obviously has something to do with speed. The function is intended to enable you to determine a maximum speed for your vehicle fleet, for example. As soon as an employee exceeds the set upper limit, you will be notified. The service can also be used for private purposes in exactly the same way. Do you want to slow down yourself or your child’s fast driving style? This is where a GPS tracker with a speed alarm can definitely help.

How does a speed alarm work?

Of course, there are no universal instructions. The alarm can be set differently depending on how the GPS tracker is used. When using and controlling via SMS, it is often sufficient to send an SMS with certain codes to the GPS tracker. These can usually be found in the enclosed instructions or on the provider’s website. If you use your GPS transmitter via mobile data, app or internet portal (usually all of these are connected), the alarm functions can normally also be controlled via these. A maximum speed is set to set the alarm. The next time the tracker starts moving, this upper limit is active. Consequently, an alarm is issued if the selected speed is exceeded. The form in which you receive this again depends entirely on your settings and how you use it. Messages can be sent by SMS, email, call or push-up notification.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
