How to stream IoT & telematics data to Key Telematics?

Sending telemetry data from flespi to the Key Telematics tracking system.

Key Telematics is a SaaS platform for vendors of asset management and vehicle tracking solutions. If you want to feed the telemetry data from flespi to Key Telematics, follow the steps below.

1. Create a device in Key Telematics

  • Log in to your Key Telematics account. Create a new device. The most important part here is to specify the same Serial Number (usually the device IMEI) that your device connected to flespi has.

2. Create an asset in Key Telematics

Create an asset in the Key Telematics interface and associate it with the recently created device.

3. Configure and assign the plugin in flespi

Create a special plugin to add the Key Telematics GUID value to the flespi device parameters.

7. Check message delivery

If you see the “stream has sent messages” log records in the stream Toolbox tab, it means flespi started forwarding the data via the stream:

And you should now see your messages in the Key Telematics system as well as the asset on the map:
