Setting Up Your System
Charge Your Mobile Alert Device
Plug the large end into an electrical outlet not controlled by a light switch and into the back of the charger. For optimal reception, place near a window.
Your device was shipped activated and ready to use. Place it in the charger cradle. Once in the cradle, all the lights will illuminate on and the green light will start blinking. This indicates that your device was successfully turned on.
The red battery light will illuminate, indicating that your device still needs charging. When your device is fully charged, the red light will turn off.
A fully-charged battery usually lasts up to 24 hours. For your best protection, please charge your device daily.
Important: You must charge the your device for at least 3 hours before using it.
Charge Your Mobile Alert Device
Once fully charged place you device on a window sill until the yellow light begins to blink. Your device is searching for a GPS satellite to obtain your location. This activity can take from 2 to15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, if the yellow light does not start blinking, take your device outside to an open area. Raise your device up to the sky in order to better obtain the GPS signal. Please be patient during this critical step—you will only need to preform this once.
Testing and service numbers for your device are located on your charging cradle. Please test your device at least once a month.
