How to set up
Register Either call a dedicated customer care centre or fill out a simple form online to register .You’ll get a login to your ‘Moocall Dashboard’ where you can see the status of your device. If you have a few then they will all be displayed. You can manage what phone numbers and emails are to receive messages. (Dashboard at www.moocall.com). A mobile app is available for Android and iOS devices which gives a couple of extra functions. You can create ringtone notifications which will make your phone ring in addition to the texts and Q&A forums to get help from other users. It’s all done over wifi so don’t worry if your mobile signal is not great.
Charging the moocall There’s a plastic cap at one end which is pretty tricky to get off (if has to be a snug & waterproof fit considering where it’s going!). Inside there is a charging port a bit like your mobile phone where it can be charged. The first charge should be overnight. Charges can last between 30 – 60 days and a sensor will let you know when the battery goes below 15%.
Turning it on & testing Press and hold the button for around 4 seconds and a blue light will blink every 4-5 seconds. Take the Moocall to where it will be used to make sure the network coverage is adequate. Make sure the blue light is blinking, press the button on the sensor for 0.5 sec and release. The wee light should now be blinking green so you know the test is under way and you’ll get a text and email to all numbers given to let you know all is well
The Sensor can then be clamped onto the cow or heifer’s tail and tensioned using a rubber ratchet strap then locked in place.
Once removed, the Moocall can be cleaned with a damp brush and / or damp cloth. It can be reset by pressing for 1 second. and the light will change from solid red to blink blue again. To turn off, press and hold the button for ten seconds. Please do not turn it back on again for at least five minutes.
