When you are with the Jiobit at a shopping mall, grocery store, on vacation, or at an airport, you want to make sure it hasn't left your side. For this, we developed a feature called Bluetooth Alert. Think of this like a virtual leash that alerts you when the Jiobit is out of range. Once this feature is enabled, the app prompts you to create a proximity radius for the Jiobit.
This feature is only available when your phone is connected to the Jiobit via Bluetooth. To quickly enable this tap on the Bluetooth icon at the bottom of the app. The app will then display "Bluetooth Alert On" at the top of your app. Then if you select "Set Range" you can set a Bluetooth radius of near or far.
If the child wanders too far outside of the Bluetooth radius the app will notify you with a visual and audible alarm on your phone. The banner will turn orange and say "Wandered Off". The visual and audible notification will cease if you press snooze or turn off the alert. To turn off the alert press the Bluetooth icon again.
TIP: Turn off Bluetooth Alert when you get home
This is recommended when you get back home or in a Trusted Place so you don’t get alerted unexpectedly in case your phone accidentally disconnects. Some phones will disconnect Bluetooth when low on power. Best to avoid a false alarm!
