Training Video #9: How to Set Up Speeding Alerts


Need training? Antonio Cole, Customer Success Manager at Momentum IoT, here with another installment of training on our top-rated, award-winning GPS telematics product. For more on our business GPS telematics and tracking features, click here:


This time, Antonio is showing you how to speed alert notifications, so you know when a vehicle is going faster than your pre-set limit. Why does this matter? Speeding while driving a company truck not only adds an unnecessary risk, but also a cost and liability you don’t need as a fleet manager. Our GPS telematics devices have spotted drivers going 90 MPH while towing loaded flatbed trailers! Not good.

A – 00:00 to 00:16

Antonio Cole, Customer Success Manager at Momentum IoT, is here to give us a quick tutorial on how to set up speed alert monitors to track when a truck, van or passenger vehicle is travelling at an excessive speed.


B – 00:17 to 00:30

The first thing you’ll do is click “Monitors” in the top navigation on your telematics dashboard, followed by “Create Monitor.” Then we’ll select “Speeding” followed by “Next.” A step-by-step guide on doing this is located here:


C – 00:31 to 00:48

Now we’ll give it a name. Let’s call it “Speeding.” Now we can set our speed limit using the plus or minus buttons. This just means you get a notification when the vehicle is traveling at a higher speed than the limit you set. (We suggest you set a high limit, so you don’t get a huge amount of notifications. You want to use this to manage by exception when a driver is going way too fast.) Let’s set it to 65 MPH in this example. Once you have set your speed threshold, select “Next.” 


D – 00:49 to 00:58

Now we can assign this speeding monitor to the right asset or set of assets. You have a choice of assets categorized by global, location, group, or individual asset. For this example, let’s select the individual asset. This opens up a list of all your assets, and also a search bar in case you have so many assets that they’re not easily displayed. In this example, we’ll choose a van, and then hit “Next.”


E – 00:59 to 01:08

Choose to follow or unfollow it, select the priority, and choose what method you want to receive the notification. Do you want an email? Or a text? Or both? We’re choosing both. Then hit “add.” And then we’re done. 


F – 01:09 to 01:23

You can review your settings by clicking on the monitor, if everything is good, hit “save.” If not, you can edit the monitor or delete the monitor. And that’s it!


G – 01:24 to 01:45

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Antonio at, or call directly at 323-786-4523.
