  2. Click on map to select region corners.
  3. If you double click to the third and next corner points, we will connect the first and the last points and create your region. You can manually connect the first and last points.

Why do I see region rule logs while the device is currently in region?

Because, your device sends approximate location information. The approximate longitude and latitude value causes this problem.

To minimize this problem, we suggest you to increase the location change meters setting in application settings or enlarge your region.
