Monimoto has two main modes: "Ready" and "Alarm." (You can think of this as "Good" and "Bad")
When in Ready mode, the device is always ready to sense any kind of motion. In the app, this mode is represented with the green check.
When motion is detected, the Monimoto device checks if the KEY FOB is nearby (max range outdoors is 100 meters/330 feet). If Monimoto locates the KEY FOB, the device stays in Ready mode. If the KEY FOB is not found, it enters Alarm mode. In the app, this mode is represented with the red exclamation mark.
Note: Once the App is connected to device via Bluetooth, the Alarm mode cannot be triggered! When testing, ALWAYS disable Bluetooth on your phone. For daily usage, it is up to you if you prefer to leave Bluetooth on or off, as the device and app do not require it.
When in the Alarm mode, GSM and GPS modules are turned on. Monimoto calls the owner in one minute, then determines its own location and sends coordinates to the owner by Push Notification. If the call is dropped or line is busy, the device calls for the second time.
To exit alarm mode Monimoto needs to find the KEY FOB nearby. You can also stop the alarm by tapping Sleep for 1, 5, or 24 hours. Device will go to deep sleep for specific duration and will ignore any motion. It will come back to Ready mode automatically after chosen time elapses.
If you connect to the device from the Monimoto app via Bluetooth, you can also stop the alarm from the Settings menu.
