Creating Vehicle Unplugged Alerts

Samsara supports the ability to create alerts in case a vehicle gateway is unplugged from its vehicle. 

To create an alert to notify if a vehicle gateway is unplugged. Select  Alerts > Configure. From there, simply click on "Vehicle Unplugged" and follow the steps below to create the alert.

1. Select whether you want the alert to apply to all vehicles in the group, specific tags, or  specific vehicle(s).

2. Specify the amount of time the gateway must be unplugged before an alert is triggered

3. Select "Add a Time Range" to add a timeframe (or multiple timeframes) to disable the alert on a daily basis. During these times, an alert will not be generated, even if the gateway is unplugged.

4. Lastly, specify the contact(s) to receive a notification via SMS or email in the event a Vehicle Unlpugged alert occurs.
