You can connect up to 3 toddlermonitor™ devices to a single smartphone.

Setting the toddlermonitor™ device “On Guard”
- Once the device has been paired, hang the toddlermonitor™ device on the door knob.
- Select the toddlermonitor™ device from the home screen within the App.
- Switch the toddlermonitor™ device from “Off Duty” to “On Guard” by tapping the toggle switch. The App may take a moment to ensure a stable connection.
- The toddlermonitor™ device is now active and will send an alert to your smartphone when it detects door movement.
- If an alert is received and acknowledged by pressing “OK”, the toddlermonitor™ device will then set to “Off Duty”.
- Reset the toddlermonitor™ device to “On Guard” by repeating steps 2-3 if you wish to continue to receive alerts if additional movement is detected.
- The toddlermonitor™ device should be set to “Off Duty” when you no longer wish to receive notifications of door movements by setting the toggle switch to “Off Duty” using steps 2-3 above.
Removing the toddlermonitor™ device from the App
- On the home screen, you can swipe right on a toddlermonitor™ device, and select the red box that says “delete”.
- The toddlermonitor™ device will then disappear and will no longer be paired with your smartphone.
Removing the toddlermonitor™ App from your smartphone
- Follow the instructions for app removal as specified for your smartphone
Up to 3 users can pair to a single toddlermonitor™ device, but only one user can control a toddlermonitor™ device and receive alerts at a given time.
Pairing for Multiple Users:
- If one user does not have a paired toddlermonitor™ device, go through steps 1-6 in the “Pairing toddlermonitor™ device” section.
Behaviour of a toddlermonitor™ device with Multiple Users
- Multiple users can be paired to a toddlermonitor™ device and will be able to see it in their App, but only one user can connect to a toddlermonitor™ device at a time. Note: Only the smartphone that is connected and has set a toddlermonitor™ device to “On Guard” will receive the alerts.
- If a second user tries to connect at the same time they will get an error message and will be unable to connect.
- A secondary user can only connect once the primary user has set a toddlermonitor™ device “Off Duty” or has left the range area. Note: If the primary user leaves the range, and while they are out of range the secondary user connects, the primary user’s connection will not be re-established when they re-enter the range area.
- The sensitivity setting and alert sound of the toddlermonitor™ device will be controlled by the device currently connected to it.
The following settings are available for users to tailor a toddlermonitor™ device to their needs. They can be found by tapping the “Settings” screen from within the App:
- Audible alarm – toggles on/off to control whether you want to have the audible alert.
- Vibrating Alarm – toggles on/off to control for whether you want to have a vibration alert.
- Alert Sounds – allow you to choose from 3 alert sounds including a Buzzer, a Bell, and a Xylophone.
- Sensitivity – allows you to choose how sensitive you would like the device to be (low/medium/high). We suggest you start at the most sensitive setting (high) and move it down as required to meet your needs. At the highest sensitivity, the device will sense a very small amount of movement which could result in some false aflerts.
- Volume – allows you to choose the volume of the alerts you receive (low/medium/high).
- Reminders – Receive reminders to rearm your toddlermonitor™ after an alert is received. Toggle to receive alerts and set amount of time until reminder is received.
- View tutorial – links to set up tutorial.
- Notifications can be reviewed on the notification tab and provide an overview of recent activities of your toddlermonitor™
Note: settings must be saved in order to take effect.
- Once a toddlermonitor™ device has been armed “On Guard”, you will receive an alert if motion is detected at the door.
- These alerts will be delivered only to the smartphone that is connected to and in range of the toddlermonitor™ device.
- When the motion is detected, the alert will push to the phone based on the selected settings by the user (see the “Device settings” section above).
- If motion is detected, alerts will go off for 30 seconds, pause for 30 seconds, and alert again for 30 seconds. This pattern will continue until the user acknowledges the alert by pressing “OK”.
- Once the alert has been acknowledged the toddlermonitor™ device will got to “Off Duty” and will need to be put “On Guard” to receive additional alerts.
- If you are connected to an “On Guard” toddlermonitor™ device, you will receive an “out of range” alert when your smartphone goes out of range. This means that your smartphone is too far away to make a connection with a toddlermonitor™ device and it will not receive alerts.
- Once you come back in range you will receive a notification confirming that your smartphone has re-connected to the toddlermonitor™ device and that your device can receive motion detection alerts again.
- Connection range distance is variable – it will depend on many factors, such as distance from smartphone to the toddlermonitor™ device, number of other Bluetooth devices in your home, number of large objects/walls separating the smartphone and the toddlermonitor™ device etc. With minimal interference, the range for the toddlermonitor™ device is approximately 100 meters (330 feet).
- You will receive an alert when the device has a low battery, please plug the toddlermonitor™ device in at your earliest convenience.
- You will receive an alert when your connected smartphone has a low battery, please plug in your smartphone at your earliest convenience.
Multiple toddlermonitor™ devices
- When multiple toddlermonitor™ devices are set, the alerts will show the name of the device as part of the alert.
- We suggest you name the devices so that you can easily tell where the alert is coming from (i.e. front door, Sam’s Bedroom).
