Features Spotter GPS Tracker
Are you curious about the functions of the Spotter GPS tracker? We will lay these out below. A complete overview can be found in the manual.
The Spotter GPS Tracker sends a location every 2 minutes during movement. When the Spotter GPS Tracker is not moving, the location is sent every 5 hours. The Spotter GPS Tracker is equipped with a motion sensor that recognizes the difference between motion and standstill. By going to the map in the online account, the location of the Spotter GPS Tracker can be viewed. All locations will be available for 24 hours, after which the data will be deleted.
You can easily set up a zone. Think, for example, of your home address, care institution, school, work or homes of family members. If the Spotter enters or leaves the zone, you will immediately receive a notification via the app as a push notification. It is possible to set 5 different zones.
To set up a zone:
- Log in via the app or via the website
- When you are logged in you will see 3 dashes at the top left, then go to ‘zone’.
- At the ‘plus sign’ you can create a new zone.
- You can now choose an icon such as the house for the ‘home location’.
- You can then drag this icon to the location or you will find a bar at the top where you can enter the address of the desired zone.
- You can then indicate how large you want this zone to be, this works in a circle.
The zone is now activated and if the Spotter leaves or re-enters this circle, you will receive a notification. You can change or delete it by clicking on the zone and choosing ‘edit’ or ‘delete’.
In addition, the GPS tracker also has the option for a ‘location lock’ in the menu. This is a quick option to set a zone on a temporary location. Think, for example, of a day out or a playground. This way you do not have to create a zone, but you can quickly click on this function as soon as the Spotter is at the location.
There is an SOS button on the front of the Spotter GPS Tracker. Press and hold the SOS button for 3 seconds and a sound signal will sound and the green LED light will flash. The SOS notification is now sent to the linked user by e-mail and as a push message on their smartphone. The name of the Spotter GPS Tracker and the location from where the SOS button was pressed are stated in the message. In the app you can see the location of where the SOS button was pressed and you can then call the Spotter to ask what is going on.
You can also call the Spotter GPS Tracker, for example in the event that a person is in need of assistance and you would like to be contacted. You log in to the Spotter app and click on the Spotter GPS Tracker icon on the map. Then a menu will open and select “Call”. The Spotter is now ringing. The phone call can be accepted by clicking on the silver icon below the display of the Spotter GPS Tracker. The phone call can be ended by clicking on the red phone icon in the display of the Spotter GPS Tracker.
Note: When you call the Spotter GPS Tracker from your own smartphone, this does not include the prepaid credit. You will call a European mobile number, therefore the calling costs of your telephone provider will apply.
The Spotter GPS Tracker is equipped with a built-in roaming SIM card, which ensures that the Spotter GPS Tracker works throughout Europe on all available mobile networks at no extra cost. Even within the Netherlands, Spotter GPS Tracker works on all available mobile networks. The reason for this is that Spotter GPS Tracker does not want to be dependent on the network coverage of a single mobile provider in a country (or region), but that Spotter GPS Tracker always chooses the best available mobile network regardless of the mobile provider. It is also possible to call the Spotter via Skype, which is cheaper.
Tip: After you have called the Spotter GPS Tracker, you can save the number so that you can also call the Spotter GPS Tracker directly without using the app.
