Tizen Native API  5.5
Geofence Manager

This Geofence Manager API provides service related to geofence(geo-fence).

Required Header

#include <geofence_manager.h>

Overview

This Geofence Manager API provides service related to geofence(geo-fence). A geofence is a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. This API provides functions to set geofence with geopoint, MAC address of Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth address. And notifications on events like changing in service status are provided. There are two kinds of places and fences:

  • Public places and fences that are created by MyPlace app can be used by all apps.
  • Private places and fences that are created by specified app can be used by the same app. Notifications can be received about the following events:
  • Zone in when a device enters a specific area
  • Zone out when a device exits a specific area
  • Results and errors for each event requested to geofence module The Geofence manager has the following properties:
  • geofence type
  • status
  • 'Service state change' callback The geofence type property of geofence manager (geofence_type_e) specifies the type of virtual perimeter. The status property describes the current state and duration of a geofence. State (geofence_state_e) can be uncertain, in, or out.

Related Features

This API is related with the following features:

  • http://tizen.org/feature/location
  • http://tizen.org/feature/location.geofence
    It is recommended to design feature related codes in your application for reliability.
    You can check if a device supports the related features for this API by using System Information, thereby controlling the procedure of your application.
    To ensure your application is only running on the device with specific features, please define the features in your manifest file using the manifest editor in the SDK.
    More details on featuring your application can be found from Feature Element.
