The Notifications step of the Device Setup allows the user to create notifications based on device events. Notification options differ between device models. Below are a list of possible notification types.
- If you do not see one of the notification options listed below, your device may not support the event type.
- Notifications are NOT global settings, each device will have separate notification settings. Therefore, if you setup a notification for one device, these settings will not apply to any other device.
Getting to the Device Setup page:
To get to the Device Setup follow the instructions below:
- Login to the Datablaze Web Portal at https://my.datablaze.com.
- Click the menu icon at the top left of the screen, then select "Devices".
- From the Device List, click on the name of the device you would like to setup.
- From the Device Dashboard, click the menu icon at the top left of the screen, then select "Setup" under the Device header.
- Next, click "4 Notifications" in the wizard header.
- To enable a notification check the "Enable" box in the notification card.
- Then, select a "Trigger" event to be alerted on. For example, Geofence alerts can be triggered by IN VIOLATION, ALL CLEAR, or Any Change. Selecting Any Change for any of the notifications will notify the contact(s) upon any change to the event. For example, both IN VIOLATION alerts and ALL CLEAR events.
- Next, select the contact or contact group to be notified. The Contact selection box shows a list of all individual contacts, as well as all contact groups. Therefore, it is important to note that naming Groups to differentiate them from individual contacts is recommended. To learn how to create contacts and contact groups CLICK HERE.
- Repeat the steps above to setup any other notifications you wish.
- To disable notifications, uncheck the "Enable" box on the card you wish to disable.
Possible Notification Types:
NOTE: Notification types differ between device models. You may see some or all of the following notifications.

- Any Change: The Any Change trigger will send notifications to contacts for both IN VIOLATION and ALL CLEAR events.
- Device Movement: The Device Movement notification is used to alert contacts when a device starts or stops moving. Triggers include the following:
- Moving: The moving trigger will send notifications to contacts any time the device starts moving (after a stopped event).
