Q:1: Used on dog collar the device is operative about 4 hours until it runs out of battery. How should it be configured to prolong usage time?
A: It all goes down to how often the data has to be sent to the server. Frequent data sending results in faster battery drain. I suggest Low Power mode and adjust Data Acquisition settings to maximize battery life.
The test have been done and the device reaches 4 days of battery life. With these settings:
Data Acquisition → On stop/On move Send period set to 3600 seconds (1 hour) and System → Tracking mode set to Low Power mode.
2. Suggestion: add setting to put device to sleep, if speed is above set value. When driving there is no need for dog location, but TMT250 drains battery very fast, if left on while driving. Data Acquisition Mode <unknown> could be used for this purpose.
