Can you do geofencing with Segments?

Geofencing is available through out partnership with Gimbal. Please contact your Urban Airship account manager or support for more information on Gimbal. The Gimbal SDK and JS bridge must be properly implemented in your app for this to work correctly.

Geofencing allows you to send automated messages to devices that enter or leave a pre-defined area. 

This is done in one of two ways:

  • Using iBeacons
  • Using Geofencing Regions

Beacons and Geofences must be set up with Gimbal. One those have been created, they will sync to your Urban Airship account within 24 hours, or you can manually sync on the Urban Airship dashboard.

After the locations have synced, you can create location-based automated messages.
