How to Monitor Health of Devices Through the Watchdog Report in MyGeotab | Fleet Productivity

Published on 03-30-2017

The Watchdog report helps monitor the health of your Telematics Devices. Every device is tested on a daily basis to ensure it is communicating via cellular network and is accurately recording trips made by drivers and their vehicles. This particular report contains a shorter timeline for communication status assignment compared to the default Watchdog report. This allows for identification of short-term telematics connectivity issues. A convenient, built-in emailed report condition can be used in order to have the report sent on an email schedule - only when a device is delayed in communication for more than 30 minutes. The watchdog report provides a quick snapshot to help manage uptime and productivity within the fleet.
