How to set up and use location on non-GPS devices

How to use and manually set location data on stationary devices that do not send location data collected via GPS or another tracking system.


If your Datacake product (and its devices) does not yet have a field of type "Geolocation", then the first thing you need to do is to create an appropriate field.

  • To do this, navigate to the Configuration View of your device and scroll to the list of database fields.

  • There you create a new field, select the type "Geolocation" and set the field role "Device Location".

  • After creation, the Location field will appear in the list of fields. You can now manually set the location of the device and from now on the location will also be displayed on map widgets or in the map view of the platform.
