Training #4: How to Set up Battery Monitors
Antonio Cole, Customer Success Manager at Momentum IoT, here with another installment of training. This time, he’s showing you how to set up a Low Battery Monitor. These are designed to let you know if your vehicle’s battery is running low, so you can know about a low battery in advance, before you or a driver go to crank a truck! Note that the Eagle 1 GPS Telematics device has advanced power management modes, designed to minimize power draw, especially while a vehicle is not in use. For a full spec on power modes, click here: https://momentumiot.com/wp-content/up….

Antonio Cole, Customer Success Manager at Momentum IoT, is here to give us a quick tutorial on how to set up battery monitor notifications. This will let you know if your vehicle’s battery level falls below a certain level.
The first thing we’ll do is go to the Monitors section. Click “Monitors” in the top tab, followed by “CREATE MONITOR.” Battery is already highlighted, so you can hit next.
Here, you can name your GPS telematics monitor. You can now set the voltage to whatever you want. You can leave it at 12 volts, or hit the plus or minus symbols to raise or lower it to your needs. The ideal voltage threshold should be based on your vehicle and battery size.
Now you have a choice of which asset you want to monitor, whether all (global), just those assigned to a location (location), just those assigned to a subset (group) or an individual asset. To learn how to assign an asset to a group, click here: https://momentumiot.zendesk.com/hc/en…. To name an asset and assign a location, click here: https://momentumiot.zendesk.com/hc/en…. Since they’re all running on our 12-volt power cables, let’s do Global. As you can see, this will assign the monitor to 4 total assets. Hit next.
Here you can follow or unfollow it, choose how high the priority is, and whether you want to receive your notifications via email, or text, or both. We’re selecting to receive these telematics monitor notifications via both email and text. Click add.
And that’s it! You can click on the monitor to review everything. If you don’t want to use it you can click to delete the monitor. If everything is to your liking, hit save and you’re all set.
