Calendars are special Traccar objects. At the moment they can be used to limit geofence to a particular time or schedule.

Creating ics file

Traccar calendar is a wrapper for a standard ics file. You can create such file in most calendar or email applications. In the following example we will use Mozilla Thunderbird.

Create a new calendar and create a new event:

Set recurrence information (for example, every day from 7:00 to 23:00):

Export created calendar to iCalendar(*.ics) file format.

Adding calendar to Traccar

Open "Calendars" in the settings menu:

Add new calendar and select local ics file to upload:


Edit a geofence object and select new calendar:

Now for this geofence enter/exit events will only be generated during calendar event times. In our example daily from 7:00 to 23:00.


You can add to ics calendar any combination of Events, not necessarily recurring.

Geofence will work only if there is any Event in the calendar at the moment of checking.
