FAQs
1. Does it need Bluetooth to be enabled?

Yes, the beacons use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to broadcast their presence. Bluetooth should be turned on, but unlike Classic Bluetooth, there’s no need for pairing. On Android, we have the option to enforce that the Bluetooth enabled.


2. How does Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) affect battery life?

In contrast to Classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is designed to provide significantly lower power consumption. This allows Android apps to communicate with BLE devices that have stricter power requirements (quoted from Android Developer Documentation).

3. How does it work on Android?


When a phone with our app installed is in range of one of our beacons, it will block the home screen.

4. Can't Bluetooth be disabled?


On Android, we will have a setting for parents that will force Bluetooth to be enabled, at least periodically.

5. Will it be available on IOS?


We are working on an IOS version. Please sign up for our mailing list on Ransomly.com to be notified of its release.


6. Do you have to have the "Space For Humanity" app installed for it to work?


Yes, otherwise this would most likely be hacking. We have designed an opt-in system and allowed for some control options for parents.
