How do you set up and use the V.ALRT on a tablet?
The V.ALRT can work together with a tablet that is connect to Wi-Fi as long as it is running either Android 4.3+ or iOS 7+. It must also support Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology.
Setting up the text/calling application
For this example we used TextFree by Pinger. Please note that VSN is not affiliated with Pinger or any other free text/calling applications.
Download and launch the application on the tablet. It with walk you through setting up a phone number (remember this number as you will need to enter it into the V.ALRT app) Once your number is created you will be able to make a contact list. Create a contact for the people you would like the V.ALRT to notify.
In the V.ALRT application
Download and launch the V.ALRT application. It will walk your through the set up process. One key point is when it asks you for your mobile number to use the one you created with the text/calling application previously.
You will then be asked for the contacts of people you want the application to notify. There will be a list that includes all the numbers you have created as a contact through the text/calling application. Select up to 3 then create the message you want it to send.
