The Wi-Fi Hotspot supplies internet connectivity for drivers so they can use the Samsara Driver App and manage daily tasks from their phones and tablets.
Administrators can set up the Wi-Fi Hotspot for each group of gateways by following these steps:
- In your Samsara Dashboard, go to Settings > General.
- Set Wi-Fi Hotspot (for vehicle gateway) to Enabled.
- Enter a Wi-Fi Hotspot Name (SSID). We recommend using the name of your fleet, or something easy for your drivers to remember and select on their mobile devices.
- Enter a Wi-Fi Hotspot Password (WPA Passphrase) that is difficult to guess, but also easy for your drivers to enter and remember.
- Click, "Save Changes."
Now the Wi-Fi Hotspot is operational for all of your Vehicle Gateways. Share the Wifi HotSpot Name and Password with your drivers.
