The key fob is a small device that comes with the Monimoto set. When the key fob is not present near the motorcycle, any sufficient movement or vibration activates the Alarm mode in Monimoto (to trigger the alarm, other conditions must be fulfilled - more information here).
You can add up to 3 key fobs to each Monimoto device. If you happen to have more than one Monimoto, same key fob can be used with multiple devices.
Important! Monimoto key fob is not supposed to be used as a key chain and should be kept separate from your motorcycle keys. This way, if your keys are stolen or lost, you will not need to fear that your motorcycle can be stolen without any notifications. We recommend to keep your Monimoto key fob in the pocket of your motorcycle jacket or trousers.
If you have a second generation key fob, make sure to keep it away from water, as it is not waterproof. It looks like this:
Third generation key fob meets the IP65 standards, which means that it is protected from dust and against low-pressure water jets, such as a faucet. That should be more than enough for normal use. It looks like this:
If you keep your vehicle close to your house, less than 30 meters away (100 ft) - make sure that the key fob and the device does not keep the connection between each other. If they do - alarm will not start until the bike is taken out of the key fob range and the device reception zone.
If your bike is kept outside and the key fob is inside, the reception zone can vary from few meters to 30 meters (100 ft), depending on the walls and other objects. Only in rare occasions the key fob can connect to Monimoto device at more than 15 meters (50 ft) distance, as walls or windows limit the radio signal.
How to test?
Leave the key fob at home where you usually keep it. Go to your bike and connect with the app from the "Settings" tab. Find "Keys" menu and check if the key fob shows any signal. Refresh by swiping down if needed.
If the connection is still present - we suggest finding a different place at home to keep your key fob or simply place the key fob in some metal box.
