Jiobit Feature Release: Alert Me (pilot) and Wi-Fi Alert (pilot)

Product Updates

The Jiobit Blog

Introducing two new ways to get critical notifications.

Alert Me feature

Alert Me (pilot feature)

Now they can call for help. From anywhere.

Double-click the logo button on the front of the Jiobit and get an urgent notification in the app letting you know they need your attention. The app then shows you exact location.

Control who on your Care Team gets the notification, and customize what the notification says. You can also choose between a double-click and a triple-click.

Activate and customize Alert Me by selecting Menu -> Notifications -> Alert Me (pilot) for each Jiobit on your account.

Wi-Fi alert feature

Wi-Fi Alert (pilot feature)

Better alerts for your most trusted place.

This feature allows the Jiobit to ignore the geofence of your Home Trusted Place, and only check to see if it’s connected to your home Wi-Fi network. Most helpful for those in apartment buildings where the home Wi-Fi network is a smaller radius than the trusted place. (This feature requires Home Wi-Fi to be enabled)

Activate Wi-Fi Alert by selecting Menu -> Trusted Places -> ••• (Home Trusted Place Menu) -> Enable Home Wi-Fi (pilot)

As always, we’re continuing to develop new features in order to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time. We encourage you to try these new pilot features out at your home with your Jiobit users and customize them to work for you.

That’s because Jiobit collects location data of those wearing the device, which is often kids. Information about your children is some of the most private data you can generate. We began investing heavily in cybersecurity technologies early in our company’s history and continue to do so today. To help build additional transparency with our customers, and future customers, we believe that sharing more specifics for how we keep that data secure is warranted. Here’s how we’re doing it:
