Re: Improve pairing for the GizmoHub App; GizmoGadget Device
Update: So we eventually did a reset to the gizmogaget (only way to change the primary caregiver status to a different phone) and luckily we were able to re-pair it with the iPhone 6 9.2.1 iOS on the first try!
I would like to add the reason we purchased this device to possibly aid other people with a smilier problem. We purchased this device for our father-in-law who had a severe brain injury and now suffers from a dementia-like state. Since he has recovered very well, he has started to wander away from the house and get lost. We purchased this device to track him and/or call him when he gets lost. We use the geofencing tool to track him; if he leaves the house between 8am-6pm (we can only add 5, 2 hour geofencing times into the device) we are alerted immediately; outside of those times, we have to manually refresh it in the app if we want to locate him. The big problem we had is that the band is designed for children; to fix this, we bought a replacement band and used a leather rivet-snap to fasten part of the extra band to the existing band. So far it has worked really well and we have been able to track him whenever he wanders and we get alerts on our phones when he leaves the house. This is a much better alternative than the other expensive GPS tracking devices that require a monitoring subscription; this device only cost us 150 dollars up front and a 5 dollar a month charge on our Verizon bill. Additionally, we wanted to have a medical alert band for him, so we purchased this product called 1bandID which is a medical alert band designed for runners to fit over any size watch; we customized the ID plate and it velcros around the watch. Everything has worked better than expected! We are so thankful to finally have a device to help GPS cellular track my father-in-law with his dementia/Alzheimer's like state. On a side note, I'm not sure of the max battery life with this usage, but we just charge it every night. Here are some pictures, I will add more later; one is a sample of the 1bandID the other is how we extended the band to fit his wrist (since we were worried about it rubbing on his arm, this is the portion of the band that the 1bandID is velcroed over so it doesn't rub).
