Correct installation is imperative for Monimoto to work properly. The good news is that it is very easy to achieve this if you follow these rules:

  1. Thinner end (the one that has GPS letters on it) must be pointing upwards or outwards, rather than inwards or to the ground. 
  2. Make sure that the Monimoto end with the GPS letters does not touch any metal parts of your bike.
  3. Never put Monimoto in an enclosed metal environment, as radio waves cannot travel through metal.
  4. Hide it properly so that thieves cannot detect it.

Tip: If you keep the vehicle near your house, within 50 meters (160 ft) - make sure that the key fob and the device do not keep the connection between them. If this is the case, the alarm will not start until the bike is out of the connection range. If your bike is outside and the key fob is inside, the connection range can vary from a few meters to 30 meters (100 ft), as the walls and other objects will impact it. It is rare that the key fob is able to connect to the Monimoto device if they are more than 15 meters (50 ft) away from each other, as walls and windows significantly limit the radio signal.

How to test? 

Leave the key fob at home where you usually keep it. Go to your bike and connect with the app from the "Settings" tab. Check if your key fob shows any signal. Refresh by swiping down if needed.

If the connection is still present - we suggest to find a different place at home to keep your key fob or simply place it in a metal box.
