Email Alerts via Moveapps

Using Movepps, I set up an email alert to check the tag voltage of deployed GPs collars and alert me if the fall under a threshold.

We are using Vectronic collars and although they do support alerts by sms and email on mortality, geofence event and even sensor event (like VIT), they do not have the option of telling if tag voltage dips below normal levels.

This can be a first indication that a tag is malfunctioning or otherwise just starting to run out of power so it would be nice to have such alerts sent.

By using the Email Alert app in Moveapps I made a battery level alert for our muskox collars which feed data live to Movebank.

I published the very simple workflow here :
