Geofencing Solutions By Linxio

Nilesh Maghzine

When it comes to geofencing solutions, a geo-fence simply put is a perimeter setup virtually plotted in a real-world scenario over a designated geographical zone.


A geo-fence can be dynamically generated predefined by a set of pinned boundaries.


Based on how the given geofencing software has been designed, it alerts the end-user by sending across custom alerts or notifications.

Simply put, a geofencing software can be used to pinpoint a device or an asset’s location by creating a virtual fence or a boundary around it.

“It is generally a location-based service in which the assigned software collates data acquired from a GPS device, an RFID tag and triggers an appropriate response when an asset either enters or leaves a demarked zone of isolation.”

How Geofencing Solutions work?

For geofencing to work, a virtual fence or a boundary has to be set up around a specified location. This virtual fence can be as simple as a circle drawn over a digital map. The virtual fence once setup triggers an alert or a notification to the end-user once an alien entity enters the set perimeter or if the tracked asset is moved beyond the confines of the virtual fence.


Areas of application
  • In telematics, the end-use of a geofencing solutions system can enforce zones around the areas of work, secure locations and client sites
  • Geofencing can be utilised in the asset location services to alert the end-user if the tracked asset has been moved from the identified zone
  • Geofencing finds applications in the construction, oil, gas and mining industries where there might be a requirement for monitoring workers in specific locations, especially during field service work
  • Geofencing also finds application in automobile security to set off an alert if a targeted vehicle is moved or falls prey to theft
  • Geofencing finds application in agriculture to track live cattle
  • Car rental companies use geofencing to enhance compliance with routes when a customer rents a car
