What is a Beacon?
Beacons are small devices that automatically communicate with your Halo collar when they are nearby each other - even indoors.
The Zone Beacon, USB Beacon and Training Beacon can be set to one of two modes: “Keep-Away” mode or “Ignore Fences” mode. “Keep-Away” mode is used to keep your dog out of unwanted or unsafe areas by simulating the presence of a Halo Fence boundary. “Ignore Fences” mode can be used to create a portable ‘safe’ zone where your pup won’t receive any Fence feedback.
The Remote Beacon can give your dog instant feedback of your choosing with just a push of a button instead of going into the Halo app.
How do you add a Beacon to the Halo App?
Before you can use a Beacon, you will need to add it to your account in the Halo app. Once your Beacon is turned on, open the app and go to the Settings tab and tap My Beacons. Then, tap “Add Beacon” on the next screen.
Once you tap “Add Beacon,” select the type of Beacon you are adding. Your Halo app will then search for nearby Beacons, it may take about 60 seconds to appear in your “Nearby Beacons” list. The Beacons will be listed on the app screen along with their serial numbers. You can find the serial number on your Beacon. Tap the Beacon that you would like to add to your account and name it whatever you’d like - ideally something prescriptive so you remember where it’s placed.
How to change the range of a Beacon
The Zone Beacon, USB Beacon and Training Beacon come with customizable ranges so you can tailor them to fit you and your dog’s needs. For example, you may want to keep your dog away from your pool, which could require a large Beacon radius in your backyard. On the other hand, if you want to keep your dog away from the stove in your kitchen, you might utilize a smaller Beacon radius.
To change the radius of a Beacon, open your app and go to the Settings tab.Next, tap My Beacons and then the name of the Beacon that you would like to edit. Now tap ‘level’, then identify the Blue Slider located at the bottom of the light blue circle. Press and hold the Blue Slider, then slide it up or down to change the Beacon radius.
Are Beacon batteries replaceable?
Yes! If your Beacon won’t turn on or if you receive a notification that it is running low on battery, then you will need a new battery. You can buy a replacement battery from most pharmacies or online - and easily replace it yourself.
