The Device Location API lets you find the location of IoT devices in an account. You can use a device’s location for many purposes, such as:
You can request a device’s current location, or request the previous location from the cache. You can compare the current and cached locations to verify that a device has not moved, or to see how far it has moved.
You can exclude any devices in an account that you do not want to be located by the Device Location Service. You can use the API with all Open Development certified IoT devices, for example routers, modems, vending machines with embedded modules, etc. You cannot use the API to locate non-IoT devices such as Smartphones, Feature Phones, Tablets, Laptops and Netbooks.
If you are interested in using the Device Location API and want to learn about pricing, please contact your organization’s Verizon Wireless account representative. If you do not have an account representative or are not sure who your representative is, please fill out the following form.
