There are several types of notifications you can receive from Fi, each can be toggled on a granular level, by users and type. This guide will provide you with an overview of each notification type, and it's settings.
To edit your notification settings: from the home screen, tap into the settings menu by tapping on the three stacked lines on the left of the screen, this will reveal your pup's pet card, which you can tap into. For multi pet households, you'll need to select your alert settings for each pet individually.
From the pet card main menu, either tap on your pet's name, or the gear icon on the top right. Tap into: Alert Settings.
By default, all alert types will be turned on for new users, each user can select different preferences on their account.
Escape Alerts & Offline Alerts
Select if you'd like to receive Escape Alerts & Offline Alerts, if so, select Push notifications, or Push + SMS.
There are two notification settings you can select from for Escape Alerts:
- Smart Mode: In this mode, Fi will try to obtain GPS confirmation that your dog has escaped before sending you a notification. In Smart Mode it may take 2-5 minutes to get an alert. Escape alerts are triggered when we receive two minutes of and/or two GPS reports that are outside of a safe zone, with out an owner.
- Sensitive Mode: Fi will alert you as soon as the Fi Collar is too far from the Fi Base or an owner. Fi will not try to understand context, or get a GPS position to confirm that your dog is out of the safe zone or away from an owner before warning you. This may result in a lot of notifications. This will result in <1 min alerts.
Exiting a safe zone alerts are:
- Exit safe zone without owner: Your pet's name just left safe zone name
- Pet disconnects from an owner's phone, while the pet is not at a safe zone: Your pet's name is around location without an owner.
Offline Alerts: If we are unable to connect to the Fi collar, how quickly would you like to be notified? These alerts can be turned off, set to as quickly as 10 minutes, or as far as 60 minutes. The in app recommendation is 30 minutes.
