General information about the beacons.

  • You will get a 'low battery' alert for a beacon running low on power, which will escalate to a 'critical low battery' alert if not changed.

Battery Insertion

  • When installing the battery into the beacon, ensure the battery is "+" side UP. When slide in, a blue light will flash for a brief second under the beacon panel. 

Beacon Durability

  • When threaded tightly, the beacons are 100% protected against solid objects like dust and sand, and has been tested to work for at least 30 minutes while under 15cm to 1m of water.  They are IP67 rated.
