Please note: Within the first few weeks the Jiobit's battery will drain quickly while it is learning it's new environment. To learn more about this, review Jiobit: The First Weeks
1. Position the Jiobit with the gray side facing up and outward
Your Jiobit gets the best signal, accuracy, and battery life when the gray side of the device is facing away from the body. If tracking a pet, position the Jiobit so it is facing the sky and refrain from attaching the Jiobit to the metal ring on the collar. Learn more about Jiobit Connection Interferences
2. Keep your Bluetooth on
Allow the Jiobit app access to Bluetooth to give the Smart Tag Tracker this low power connection in your phone settings.Connect to your phone’s Bluetooth when the Jiobit is close. This tells your Jiobit that it is in close enough range to base its location on that of your phone.
3. Always allow location access
Set “location access” to “always” in your phone settings. The Jiobit, when Bluetooth paired, can then use the phone’s location information without needing the app to be open. Remember-- it is only used to allow Jiobit to connect to you or a Care Team Member when in range.
4. Set up Wi-Fi connection
When your Jiobit is connected to WiFi, it improves the battery life and notifications since it no longer has to search for a signal. You can connect to any password protected Wi-Fi network at home, up to 5 trusted places.
Go to Menu > Trusted Places > Click “...” > Add Wi-Fi on the preferred Trusted Place
5. Turn frequent destinations into “Trusted Places”
The Jiobit will go into power save mode once it’s inside of a Trusted Place boundary. Save on battery power and add places like your home, school, daycare, etc. Don’t worry-- your Jiobit will know to notify you when it leaves one of the Trusted Places.
Go to Menu > Trusted Places > Click “...” > Add
6. Invite Care Team members
Invite trusted family members and friends to your account, and save battery when a Care Team member’s phone is connected to the Jiobit through a Bluetooth connection.
