Geofencing for Relay works by having your Relay ping our servers every 10 minutes to report whether or not it has entered or left a Geofenced area.
If a Relay finds itself within the boundaries of a Geofenced area when it pings our servers, then a notification will be sent to app users indicating that a Relay has entered the area. If the Relay pings our servers and the location provided is no longer within that Geofenced area, then the app user will receive a notification indicating that the Relay has left that area.
You are able to adjust the frequency at which a Relay will wake up to report whether it has entered or exited a Geofenced area from every 10 minutes to every 5 minutes, providing you with more timely notifications
Warning! Enabling this feature can cause the battery life of your Relay to drop by 10% and can only be done by an Account Owner or Admin.

There you have it! You have now learned how to adjust the frequency at which a Relay will ping our servers to provide an update for its Geofenced areas.
