How can I set up one or more Virtual Fences?

One of the great advantages of the Tractive GPS is the Virtual Fence feature: with it, you'll be notified as soon as your pet leaves a defined safe area. Follow the steps below to set up a Virtual Fence and keep your furry friend safe.

 

 

In the Tractive GPS mobile app: 

  • Sign into the Tractive GPS mobile app on your smartphone.
  • In the Map view, select the desired pet and tap the fence icon in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Tap Add a Virtual Fence in the bottom right-hand corner to set up your first Virtual Fence. A pink Virtual Fence will then appear on the map. 
  • Tap and hold the center of the Virtual Fence to drag it to the desired location.
  • Adjust the size by holding and dragging the pink dot located on the perimeter of the fence. Note: the minimum radius is 50 meters. 
  • Here you can also: give your Virtual Fence a name such as Work or Home, choose between a circular or rectangular Virtual Fence, set an icon for your Virtual Fence, activate, deactivate, or delete the fence.
  • Press Save to successfully add the Virtual Fence.

Multiple Virtual Fences

Please note:

  • If you need two (or more) different zones for home and work or any other location you would like to mark "safe" for your pet, you can add as many Virtual Fences as you'd like.
  • Additionally, you will need to set a separate Virtual Fence for each pet.

You can then view a list of all active Virtual Fences in case you have already one or more configured:
