The Devices section in Plaspy allows you to manage and monitor the satellite tracking devices associated with your account. Here, you can add new trackers, view the status of current ones, and configure various options for each device. This functionality is essential for maintaining precise and up-to-date control of the vehicles, assets, or people you are tracking. To access this section, navigate to "Devices " from the main panel.

Plaspy automatically detects the type of device connected to your account, and this information may vary depending on the device. Some examples of device types are: Android, IOS, Xexun, TK103, GPS103, GT06, among others. This detection is based on the communication protocol used by the tracker and does not necessarily match the brand and model of the device.

Note for mobile phones: It is necessary to download our Plaspy App from your mobile device's app store. Once the application is open, log into your account or register with Plaspy, allowing you to add new devices to your tracking service. The Plaspy mobile app offers additional options such as transmission time, the ability to track the phone, or use the app to monitor and control other devices. The app will have permissions for your account deactivated by default; you need to authorize the permissions that fit the desired profile. You can create and configure profiles in the option assigned to the device or user.
