Detecting motion via API

I have the following questions

  1. Is it possible to determine whether a tag is moving or not moving (Stationary mode vs moving) via API calls? One that does not require reading the accelerometer?
  2. What is the amount of time for a tag to go from “motion” mode to “stationary” mode when a tag stops moving? Is this fixed or relative to the location rates?

Thank you.


  1. No, that is not possible.

  2. From “Moving” to “Stationary” it happens within 3 s or at least two update cycles if the update rate is longer than 1.5 s. So e.g. if your update rate is 100ms then it will take 3 s until the Tag switch to stationary mode. If your update rate is 5 s, then it will take 10s until it switch.
