Calling with dokiPal

Author: Aufar Waldi / Category dokiPal Tutorials / Published: Jul-17-2019

dokiPal works like a wearable smartphone in that it connects to 4G and is able to make and receive calls! dokiPal supports 3 types of calls: Video, voice and data calling.

Video call uses data and utilizes dokiPal's camera so that you can see your kids while calling them

Data call, like the name suggests, uses data to make calls to/from dokiPal. This is similar to calling from Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. [Please use this option if you are using Doki SIM]

Voice call uses calling minutes to call to/from dokiPal. This is like initiating a call from your phone to another phone number. [Will not work with data-only sims]
 
Please note that to call a dokiPal with a phone, that the contact will have to be approved by the admin. For more information please visit the contacts section on the User Guide.

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 through the menu and tap call

 

Select the contact you would like to call

 

Choose the type of call you would like to make (calls are labelled)

 

Press the red hang-up button to end the call

 

Calling from Doki App to dokiPal

On Doki App, select the child you would like to call and choose either Video Call or Voice Call

 

If you've chosen Voice Call, choose whether you'd like to make a regular phone call or a data call [Choose data call on Doki SIM]

 

Activating Doki SIM

Press the red hang-up button to end the call

On Doki App, select the child you would like to call and choose either Video Call or Voice Call

If you've chosen Voice Call, choose whether you'd like to make a regular phone call or a data call [Choose data call on Doki SIM]

Press the red hang-up button to end the call

If you are activating Doki SIM on an already paired watch, go to Profile > Sim Management on the Doki App and follow the same activation steps.

Within Sim Management, you can see account info, view all activated Sims and customize your account information dashboard. In addition, you can also change your payment method, review transaction history and also cancel the plan anytime.

Note: If you are an approved contact and the dokiPal has a Sim card with calling minutes, you can also call dokiPal by calling its number. For more information on how to add contacts, please visit our User Guide.
