Setting Up WiFi Hotspots

The WiFi 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 WiFi HotSpot for each group of gateways.

  1. In your Samsara Dashboard, go to Settings > General. 
  2. Set Wifi Hotspot to "Enabled."
  3. Set a SSID that is memorable for your drivers. This will be the network name drivers select on their mobile devices. 
  4. Set a Passphrase that's difficult to guess.


The WiFi Hotspot is now operational in all vehicle gateways. Share the SSID and Passphrase with your drivers.
