You can configure your unpowered AG to check-in with a GPS location at a rate suitable to your business. For instance, you can change tracking to live or every 30 minutes if you suspect theft or unauthorized use. You can also configure your AG for fewer check-ins to preserve battery for dormant assets at a low risk of theft.
It is possible to set up any AG15, AG24, AG41 or AG45 to check-in with the Samsara Dashboard at one of the following intervals:
- 30 minutes
- 1 hour
- 2 hours (default)
- 6 hours
- 12 hours
- 24 hours
**Please note: Changing your AG Check-In Rate will affect the battery life of your device. Please keep this in mind when adjusting the check-in interval.
Follow the instructions below to customize a check-in rate. The device will accept the new check-in rate during the next scheduled check-in.
