Radar

Radar makes it easy to start tracking location data with their iOS and Android SDKs, and generate contextual events from this data using their different event types: Geofences, Insights, and Places.

Radar sends location data to Urban Airship using our server-side Custom Events API. Whenever location events are generated, Radar will send custom events and properties to Urban Airship. This data can then be used with the Event trigger in the Automation workflow.

Use Cases

  • Media: Trigger sending a notification to a user when they enter a place within a specific category, e.g., a fitness venue, asking them to read your latest article on Health & Wellness.

  • Retail: Trigger sending a notification to a user when they enter one of your store locations, telling them about a new product you are offering.

  • Dining: Trigger sending a notification to a user when they enter a specific geofence, offering them a 20% off coupon for your restaurant.
