The geofence thus defined is a circular boundary of radius defined around the latitude and longitude. You then give a name for this geofence and the device where you want to receive notofications. You can set up as many geofences as you want.
What are geofence events?
A geofence event occurs when a person or device enters or exits a geofence. When the person enters a geofence, an entered event is triggered. Similarly, when the person leaves a geofence, an exited event is triggered. Whenever an entered or exited event occurs, you will receive notification on Telegram messenger.
