We compiled a list of frequently asked technical questions below. If you these do not answer your questions, please send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Quickstarts and sample apps are open sourced with the MIT License. We built them to reduce your to build your own app and go to market. We are actively adding more open sourced apps built with HyperTrack that you can fork and re-purpose for your own needs.
Live location tracking is a background process that uses OS location, activity and sensor APIs. We use patented technology to minimize battery drain for high accuracy location tracking. We are constantly improving the energy efficiency of our SDKs. For average movement and phone usage of a mobile worker, HyperTrack should drain single digit % of battery in the day.
In tens of MBs per month for each device.
Yes, you can configure webhooks to stream all movement, activity, and geotags to your server in real-time.

Start/stop tracking of devices, and start/complete trip, are available only when device is online.
