Adding contacts into dokiPal

Author: Aufar Waldi / Category dokiPal Tutorials / Published: Jul-22-2019

Unlike smartphones, dokiPal's contact list is completely controlled by you, the admin. To accomplish this, we've structured our software such that the administrator Doki App has full control of all dokiPal settings.

What does that mean? It means everything, from calling, texting, location tracking, will be done on the dokiApp. For some, that may be a bit of a learning curve. But do not be scared! We're here to help.

We will address one of the biggest questions we often have after a purchase, how do I add more contacts to the dokiPal? Also, we'll explain how to add other dokiPals as contacts with the Add Friends feature.

Location Tracking

Author Maxim Tourou / Category Architecture / Published: Apr-05-2018

 

Location tracking is at the heart of dokiPal; it's always the first thing you see when you open the Doki App! But what if you wanted more control and wanted to get notified everytime a child enters or leaves an area? This is where Alert Area shines.

Alert area allows you to create geo-fences. This means that you can set times to get a notification whenever your child enters or leaves a certain location or area (e.g. school, a friend's home, park etc.)

If the dokiPal (or your child) is not within a pre-set area, you will receive a notification, making this an easy way to know when your child arrives at or leaves a certain area.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set up your very first Alert Area!

 

On dokiPal, swipe the menu and tap Call

 

Tap Add Friend

 

Activating Doki SIM

Take the same steps on a friend's or sibling's dokiPal to send a friend request

Once they accept the request, you are now friends!

Note: Users can choose to use their local carrier SIM cards if they choose to.

For examples, for US customers, SIM cards from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon (and over MVNOs operating under these networks ie. Cricket Wireless) are compatible with the dokiPal smartwatch. Here is a list of telecom operators/ carriers the dokiPal is compatible with around the world.
