How can you tell when the battery in your Prox PRD is getting low? The PRD will let you know!
Prox PRD® is all about making your life more productive without worrying about things that can set you back. There are some things that we use in our daily lives that we just can't go without; our phone is right at the top of that list. Our phone is our connection to the world; we use it to communicate with family and friends, for transportation, ordering food, reading news, paying bills, and even to lock and unlock our house and cars. The phone is head and shoulders the most important personal asset that we have in today's world, and it's also the #1 most forgotten and lost item of all. So losing your phone because the PRD's battery is dead would be very unfortunate.
The battery in your PRD will last up to 12 months under everyday usage and while being kept on 24/7 and, can potentially last longer because of the PRD's patented automatic sleep mode feature that conserves battery energy when not in use for more than 15 minutes. So, you don't have to worry about the battery running out too soon. And now, you can even stay worry-free when the battery on your PRD is about to run out.
The PRD will remind you!
When the battery in your PRD is about to run out, you will know. As the battery approaches a low level, the loudness of the separation alerts will be noticeably reduced and/or the LEDs will become dimmer, especially the blue LED. From here, the PRD may still operate for several more months before you receive the critical 'low battery' notification. At this critical level, the PRD will chirp every two (2) seconds, upon movement. This indicates that the battery is close to being empty. To stop the chirping, press and hold the button for three (3) seconds; this will turn the PRD off. From here, the PRD cannot be turned back on until the battery is replaced.

If you receive this critical low warning but don't have immediate access to a new replacement battery, and you still need to use the PRD as a phone reminder for a little bit longer before you have the opportunity to replace the battery, a PRD hack that you can do is take the battery out and insert the same battery back into the PRD, that way you can continue using the PRD and buy yourself a little bit more time.
The PRD's Advanced Alert Technology is constantly self-diagnosing and managing it's battery usage and energy level. Simply put, the PRD gives you the best bang for your buck when it comes to energy usage. The PRD uses every ounce of battery juice efficiently and effectively. We don't believe in wasting battery power on actions that don't help you. You can say that the PRD is pretty smart.
With the PRD, you are sure to be well informed when the battery reaches low levels and what your options are on how to handle it.
