What is it?

This device type creates a group of HS devices to represent a FollowMee user.


NOTE: A FollowMee service account must have been added, successfully polled and contain active devices before this option will be available in the User/Device type drop down list.


Add a new iDevice User/Device Type

From the User / Devices configuration page, select iDevice (P)



General Options

Device Enabled

Enable / Disable this device.


Device Id

Select a discovered device from the drop down list.

Only discovered devices that are not already included in the plug-in will be available for selection.


Minimum distance to move

This is the minimum distance that a new position update must be from the last known position for it to be considered as new.

Recommended starting value for this field is 0.5 miles or 0.8 kilometres


Ignore new position if accuracy > (metres)

If the reported accuracy of the new position > this value then the position will be ignored. Accuracy is always shown in metres regardless of the units setting.

Recommended starting value for this field is 2000 metres.


Show Address Only

If enabled hyper-links and additional data will not be added to the Street Address device for this user.


Record to Database

If selected, both new position updates will be recorded to the plug-in's database for later viewing / mapping.


Dynamic Mapping Options

Build a New Map when Location Changes

If enabled a new dynamic map of the device's current location will be created whenever its location is updated.

By default the map file will be saved as \HS3\html\PHLocation2\Maps\XXXX_current.html where XXXX is the DeviceId.


Map Icon (Google Only)

This option allows specifying different map marker icons on Google maps only. All other map providers have fixed icons.


Map Marker Character

Choose the character displayed on the dynamic map marker. Valid choices are A to Z or Off.


Initial Map Type

Specifies the map type that is initially set when a map is displayed on the internal map viewer.


Initial Max Zoom Level

On a single point or multi-point map where all points are very close together, the map can sometimes be over-zoomed making it difficult to read.

This options allows setting a max initial zoom level so the map won't open in an over-zoomed state.

Under normal circumstances leave this set at Auto and the plug-in will handle the correct zoom level.


Map Size

Set the size of the map. Max size is 1000 x 1000 px.


Override File Path / Name

By default the auto-generated all users map will be saved to:

\HS3\html\PHLocation2\Maps and the file name will be all_users_current.html


The path and/or file name can be overridden using these settings.


The file name can take replacement variables which must be enclosed between the dollar symbol like $variable$.
You can specify multiple variables together ($YMD$) or singularly ($Y$/$D$/$M$).
Supported variables are
A=Yesterday's date (YYYYMMDD)
Y=Current Year (YYYY)
M=Current Month (MM)
D=Current Day (DD)
h=Current Hour (hh)
m=Current Minute (mm)
s=Current Second (ss)


Include this device on All Users Dynamic Map

If enabled, this device's current location will be included on the all users dynamic map. See here for options relating to the all users map.


Rebuild Child Devices Button

If a child device has been deleted or new features are added in a future plug-in release that require additional child devices, then this function will rebuild any missing child devices and add them to the group.
