Q: Can I test the fall alert feature?

A:  Yes, you can test the fall detection feature.  We do have a lot going on behind the scenes and several unique characteristics are taken into consideration to determine a real fall vs. briefly stepping off your horse to set a jump.  The system is not based on impact so our system is extremely reliable and unique!  If you wish to test the fall alert feature, follow the instructions on the screen after you hit start, after the system briefly calibrates, take your phone and walk away from the sensor a few feet and set your phone on the ground and walk away for the length of your favorite song and the fall alert will send.  If you have issues testing the fall alert in a test environment, please contact support@equinetrac.com and we will be happy to walk you through this over the phone. 

Q: Can the sensor track my horse if it run off? 

A;  No, the sensor does not have its own built in GPS and is only used for the purpose of detecting a fall.
