Watch this brief video that explains how Monimoto works:



Monimoto has a GPS, GSM, and Bluetooth modules inside, as well as an Accelerometer. It also comes with a small KEY that communicates directly with the Monimoto device. 


When the Monimoto device and its KEY are next to each other - Monimoto is in Ready mode (ready to detect any kind of motion, e.g. riding a motorcycle). When the movement is detected, Monimoto always checks if the KEY is nearby. If it's not found - Monimoto enters Alarm mode and starts the notification procedures - calls the owner twice and then starts sending notifications.


If the KEY is found during the Alarm mode - Monimoto switches back to Ready mode.  


Though it's important to remember that during the Alarm, the device is not searching for the KEY permanently, but rather does that in 3-minute (when device is moving) and 30-minute (when device is not moving) intervals. So when the KEY appears next to the device for shorter duration, in some cases, it will not stop the Alarm. That usually happens when users are testing the device and drive without the KEY to trigger the alarm. When the Monimoto is back near the KEY - it needs to stay next to it for longer than 3 minutes to stop alarm. 


NOTE: Any app connection over Bluetooth returns the device to Ready mode, or does not trigger the alarm. 


This is a simplified scheme showing the workflow of Monimoto: 


Here is the timeline showing behavior of Monimoto from the time that movement has been detected:


Monimoto Key needs to be kept away from the main Monimoto unit. We recommend that you keep the Monimoto KEY in the pocket of your motorcycle jacket or pants, as the Key is not waterproof. 


You don't need to arm or disarm the alarm system, as the Key does that for you.
