Fi's #1 priority is keeping your dog safe and healthy.
The FCC defines and enforces standards for the safety of radio emitting devices.
Although the Federal Communications Commission only regulates radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields for humans, Fi complies with those same limits and has been certified.
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 as safe. The Fi Collar passed the FCC requirement with an emission of 0.3W/kg in the highest case. As a point of reference, the iPhone emits 1.6W/kg within a 30 minute cellular phone call.
It is also worth noting that, because we are using 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 have to connect to the 3G network and stay connected at all times - so the Fi Collar is substantially safer than any device out there.
Not only did we certify the Fi hardware through the FCC radiation commission, but 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 look for your lost dog.
The Fi module is within the same standard of RF exposure limits as any other product that produces an electromagnetic energy, such as cellular phones.
If Fi wasn't safe for dogs - we wouldn't have created it. Rest assured, the Fi collar will cause no harm to your dog or to you.
