What is a Trusted Place?
Trusted Places is one of the most important features of the Jiobit Platform.
This feature allows you to set up locations where you expect the Jiobit to be at various times of the week. Most times, these are locations away from you or care team members for a long period of time.
Suggested Trusted Places are listed below but can vary for each family.
In order to maximize the performance of the Jiobit, we recommend setting up multiple Trusted Places. The app prompts you to create Trusted Places during the set-up of your Jiobit. However, at any time more can be added by tapping on "Menu" in the dashboard view and selecting "Trusted Places".
From there, you can add additional locations, select which of your Jiobit devices should use those Trusted Places (if you have multiple), and configure the alerts you would like to receive.
To create a Trusted Place for any location, simply type in the address, or if you don’t know it, the location name or city. You’ll be able to navigate the map and center the location with the geofence radius to suit your needs. The geofence is customizable from setting it at 100 ft to 800 ft by using the sliding bar.
Tip: The Jiobit doesn't need to be at the location to create a Trusted Place.
After a Trusted Place is set-up this will allow notifications to be issued when the Jiobit leaves and enter that location. During this time the Jiobit constantly scans the environment in a low power manner, detecting if it has moved away from that location. You can configure these notifications per Trusted Place in the Notification settings of the Jiobit app.
For example, receiving a notification when the Jiobit enters your "HOME" Trusted Place and only when it exits the "SCHOOL" Trusted Place.
As a reminder, when the Jiobit is in a Trusted Place, it will enter a lower power mode to conserve battery. Therefore, you will not see a location pin icon or an accuracy circle. You will simply see that the Jiobit is at the Trusted Place within the geofence radius of that location only.
Trusted Place Notifications
In order to notify you as quickly as possible, the Jiobit should be worn with the gray side facing away from the body and free from any obstruction. On average notifications may be issued within 1-3 minutes. This is dependant on the placement and the conditions within the environment.
