Step 6: By clicking on the Map button, you will be able to add your sensor directly onto the map. The top hand tool helps you move around the map without affecting any asset on the map. The top line tools (polyline, circle, rectangle, and polygon) can be used to draw fence lines.

If you press the top X tool, you will permanently remove any fence lines on the map. The top four-arrow tool allows you to move a specific asset by clicking on the asset and dragging it to the desired location.  The tool on the right-hand side of the four-arrow tool, allows you to ‘snap’ or connect your asset to the closest fixed point on your map. The tool on the left-hand side of the X tool shows/hides all assets on your map.
