Yes, the Fi Collar is safe, and it is Fi's #1 priority to keep your dog safe and healthy. Although the FCC only regulates radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields for humans, Fi complies with those same limits, and Fi has been certified.
Fi's Safety Guidelines
- The Federal Communications Commission defines and enforces standards for the safety of radio emitting devices.
- The Fi Module is within the same standard of RF exposure limits as any other product that produces electromagnetic energy, such as cellular phones.
- For cellular enabled devices, the FCC defines that 4W/kg of radio emission for a 30 minute cellular phone call placed next to the head of a human is safe.
- The Fi Collar passed the FCC requirement with an emission of 0.3W/kg in the highest case. As a reference, the iPhone emits 1.6W/kg within a 30 minute cellular phone call.
- Fi uses LTE CAT M1 cellular technology. The Fi Collar only connects to the cellular network when it needs to send data, which is very sporadic.
- All other 3G trackers on the market must connect to the 3G network and stay connected at all times. Therefore, the Fi Collar is substantially safer than any other device out there.
- Not only did we certify the Fi hardware through the FCC radiation commission, we also made sure that in its normal operating mode, the Fi Collar emits only 1/100th of the energy of a cell phone.
- Additionally, it only emits a radio frequency when you actively search for your lost dog.
