Quick facts

Devices in flespi are distinguished by a unique ident which most of the time corresponds to the tracker’s IMEI.

You can configure different models of trackers from a single friendly interface (or via the API). Bulk updates also supported.

Devices can store messages in flespi for up to 10 years.

flespi currently supports 450+ device types.

With the Commercial account, you can create up to 1,000 devices for the base fixed price of $100. Extra 100 devices will cost an additional $1.

Enabling a virtual device

  1. Log in with the flespi panel.

  2. Make sure you already have a channel for the proper protocol created in Telematics hub -> Channels.

  3. Go to Telematics hub in the left-side menu -> Devices -> click “+”.

  4. Pick the device type corresponding to your device; give it a name, specify the ident (IMEI), phone number (optional), and click Save.

  5. If your physical tracker is already pointed to the proper flespi channel, you should start receiving messages shortly. Use the Toolbox tab to check logs and messages.
