Trusted Places are our solution to the energy-draining effects of live location streaming. They give the Jiobit a “home base” to maximize battery life while the Jiobit wearer is close.
When the Jiobit wearer is within the Trusted Place boundary (usually their home or school coordinates) or within 30 feet of a Care Team member (connected via Bluetooth), the Jiobit goes into power-save mode and “rests” until the Jiobit wearer leaves or the connection is broken.
Once there is movement outside of the Trusted Place boundary, your app is programmed to send push notifications and text messages to tell you that the Jiobit is no longer detected within that radius.
If you don’t want to receive notifications every time the Jiobit leaves or arrives at a Trusted Place, switch off notifications by going to MENU > Notifications > Trusted Places.
False or Delayed Notifications
Remember—the Trusted Place boundary that you set sits on a specific set of geofence coordinates rather than the walls of your home or school. If your Trusted Place radius is too restrictive, you may receive false notifications, even if the Jiobit hasn’t left the building.
On the other hand, notifications may feel delayed if your Trusted Place boundary is too large. Because a manual geofence radius must be between 100-800 feet, this radius might feel too big for a small apartment or property. Connect to Wi-Fi for improved accuracy and faster notifications.
