The device needs internet to function.
So, it is suggested that the device is connected to Internet via a portable hotspot from a phone or a device similar to the one purchased from Jio viz., JioFi. Other network providers like Airtel and VI also have similar devices that can be purchased from them directly.
It is important that you use a portable hotspot device that can provide 2.5G internet connection. All smartphones can provide this. A mobile portable hotspot can also be used. THIS IS ONLY NECESSARY IF YOU HAVE POWERCUTS OFTEN.
In short. The device can send a notification to the family member who may be present anywhere in the world. The device must have a constant network connection (configured during the initial setup. It cannot dynamically adjust to new connections). One use case would be the parent who lives in India, and the child/family member(s) who live in a different area/state/country will get a notification within a short time of the button press*.
No. Unfortunately, since the device is custom made through 3d printing, colours only change every cycle of production. See current colour data above.
We recommend that a 5Volt, 1 Amp Adaptor is used. You can also use a 5 Volt, 500 Milli Amp (mA) Adaptor. For charging a micro USB cable can only be used. A free cable is included in the box for the same.
No. Not Water proof. See instruction manual for all details regarding the use of the device.
Because of the presence of a rechargeable battery in the device, the shipping costs are high. Hence, we have optimised the product cost to make sure that the overall price does not become too excessive to help more people gain access to it. Shipping costs are decided by the providers and hence the costs are market dependent.
Yes. We are planning to ship a worldwide edition of the device soon. The presence of a battery in the product is causing higher shipping costs. Work is going on to reduce this. Soon, a new version that works worldwide with lower shipping costs will be introduced. Until then, we ship in India only.
