Signal Troubleshooting


No Signal

Potential reasons:

  1. No cellular coverage

    • The number of people using their phones or data on a tower can change signal strength. This makes the signal sometimes stronger or weaker. Changes from the cell provider can also affect this.

  2. The device is in a place that blocks cellular reception

    • For example, materials like concrete, metal, and certain types of glass can block cell signals. Stucco, metal roofs, and materials in attics can also weaken signals.



  1. App is not updating with the child’s location

  2. 1-Way Voice & 2-Way Voice will not go through

  3. No notifications

Determining if device replacement is needed: 

In order to determine whether you need a device replacement to better suit your area:

  1. Charge the device and assure the light is on

  2. Take the device out in transit with you at least 5-10 miles outdoors away from the charging location. This way the device can fully connect to local cellular towers and GPS in the area.

    • If the app is updating, continue using the device (problem was local)

    • Otherwise, contact us at providing as much information as possible

Tracking during No Signal


Unfortunately, none of the cellular operators in the US provides 100% coverage. We are aware of this in AngelSense and designed our system so that there is much you can benefit from while there is no connection.

The device stores the GPS readings in its memory and once the cellular connection is re-established, it will transmit the entire GPS recording it stored. This ensures that even in cases when the cellular connectivity is lost, all of the data is saved.

Determining the device’s location:

*The Voice functions cannot be used when there is no cellular reception.

No Signal after reactivation


Your account is basically starting to function again, as though you had your device sitting at home all those months, and thus you will see “No Signal” for many hours. As many hours as the time passed since you cancelled.
