To use the Surerity tracking system, you will need to register an account and set up your device(s). The application runs on most modern browsers, preferably on a laptop or workstation, although you can also use it on a smartphone or tablet with a decent-sized screen.
We are working on implementing an Android app, and later on will also introduce an IoS (Apple) app.
You can register yourself, or use our Contacts page (menu above) for us to assist you.
Registering an account
To register yourself, click on Login / Surerity Personal Tracking above
Click the Register button once the page loads, and enter your name, email address (which will be your login id) and a secure password.
The Surerity traccking application front page with map should now display. You may want a different location than the one displayed as your default landing map: see below on setting up your account.
Configuring your account
Setting up your account configures system defaults to your requirements. Note that many of these defaults can be overriden at the Group, User and Device level.
At top right, click on the settings drop-down ‘cog’ icon, and select ‘Account’.
Note that if you do not change or add any details to the Account, you will inherit the Surerity system defaults
Phone number: not required, but recommended
Map Layer: There are a number of map layers (map types) that you can choose from. As standard, Surerity implements Openstreemap. All the standard map layers apart from Bing are free to use. If you have a Bing Maps account, you could enter those details here. The maps we recommend are Openstreetmap, Wikimedia and the Custom map option. Note that depending on usage, we may institute a fee for the Custom open at a future date.
Latitude / Longitude / Zoom. These are the centering coordinates to display the map when you log in to the system. We recommend using Google Maps or Openstreetmaps. Navigate to your required location, center the map, and zoom in / out as desired. In the Browser address bar you will see something like https://www.google.com/maps/@-32.9894994,27.9105328,12.75z (Google) or https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=11/50.9997/-114.0309&layers=NG (Openstreetmap). In Google, the map coordinates are in @ latitude, longitude, zoom level (z) format. For OSM, these are in #map=zoom / latitude / longitude format. Paste these into the relevant fields on your Preferences section.
We highly recommend leaving the coordinates and POI parameters as they are.
Attributes. At bottom left, there is an Attributes button. If you click this, you will get the Attributes popup. Click ‘+’ to add an attribute. The one attribute you should add is Timezone. Click the drop-down to select, timezones are listed by continent. You may want to change the speed and distance units, these are in km/h and km respectively for the system. We recommend not adding any other attributes.
Once complete, click the tick button at the bottom of the section to save your changes
Adding your first device
At the top left of the page, click the Devices ‘+’ button, and enter the necessary information.
Name and identifier: the name is the unique display name for your device.
Android and IoS tracking: the identifier must match that set in the smartphonetracking app (Surerity Client).
GPS tracking devices: for most trackers, the identifier is usually the IMEI device code. Note that the tracking device must be configured with the correct server IP address, port number and APN. Please contact Surerity for this information if you do not have it. NOTE that not all trackers are compatible with our system.
Extras: we recommend selecting a category, as the displayed icon changes by category.
Click on the ‘tick’ button to accept the device configuration.
Refer to the Device setup page for more information.
