How does it work?

Setting up Ping is simple!

  1. Download our free mobile app for iOS or Android
  2. Plug your Ping into a power source and hold down the button until it blinks
  3. The app will recognize your device and let you finish adding it to your account
  4. If you want global coverage or discounted data plans, you will be able to add them at that point

Finding a Ping is (also) easy!

  1. From the Ping app, click on the icon for the device you want to find
  2. Our cloud-based servers will immediately start locating your device
  3. Once found (typically within 60-90 seconds), its location will be transmitted back to your phone on a map, letting you know how far away it is from you.

Using the Check-in Button

  1. Triple click the button on your Ping
  2. The device will immediately start obtaining its location via GPS and cell triangulation
  3. Once the location is received, a notification will be sent to the mobile phone of the device's owner and anyone else authorized to receive those alerts letting them know that someone has checked in and where they currently are located.

Using the Panic Button

  1. Hold down the button on your Ping until the lights blink rapidly
  2. The device will immediately start obtaining its location via GPS and cell triangulation
  3. Once the location is received, an alert will be sent to the mobile phone of the device's owner and anyone else authorized to receive those alerts letting them know that someone needs assistance and where they currently are located.
