Monimoto connects to the Key Fob from home

If you keep your vehicle near your home, within 50 meters (160 ft) - make sure the Key Fob and device do not keep a Bluetooth connection between them. If they do then the alarm will not start until the bike is out of 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 walls and other objects can impact connectivity.

Luckily the Key Fob range can now be reduced.  This will allow you to make sure the Monimoto and Key Fob are not connected when you park your vehicle near your home or office. This works for MM5 and MM6 models from firmware version onwards.

To reduce Key Fob signal range, park your vehicle, put your Key Fob in the place where you usually keep it. 

Go to Settings -> Connect -> Key Fobs and slightly reduce the distance.

The Key Fob will restart and you will be able to see if the Key Fob still connects. If it still connects, reduce the range again until the Monimoto device is no longer linked to the Key Fob. 

NoteReducing the distance increases the chances of a false alarm being triggered while driving.


How to test if Monimoto is an older model like MM1, MM2? 
Leave the Key Fob at home where you usually keep it. Go to your bike and do this:

Go to Settings -> Connect -> Key Fobs and check if the Key Fob shows any signal. Refresh by swiping down if needed.

If the connection is still present - we suggest you find another place at home to keep your Key Fob or place the Key Fob in a signal blocking pouch/metal box.
