The battery life of the Otiom-tag is up to one month under normal usage.
Normal usage means that the person with the tag stays mostly in the vicinity of his/her home, with up to 30 minutes daily movement outside the home – without triggering the Otiom alarm.
Otiom saves power when inside the home. ‘Home’ means that the tag is connected to the Otiom Home Base. The Home Base is included when you buy Otiom. It has a range of about 145 m2, takes up just 6 x 2.5 cm and is wireless.
The Otiom-tag uses more battery power when it is outside the home for a prolonged period of time. For example, if the person goes for a walk for up to three hours a day, the battery life will be reduced to about one week.
If the Otiom-tag triggers an alarm, the battery life will be reduced further. Otiom triggers an alarm when the person with the tag leaves the established safe zone.
Otiom automatically sends a text message when the Otiom-tag’s battery level reaches 30%.
The battery life of the Home Base is 3-4 years.
