How do I set up my Plegium pepper spray with my phone?

Setting up your Plegium Smart Pepper Spray or your Plegium Smart Mini Pepper Spray with your phone is a quick and easy process. Here's how to do it:

1. Download the Plegium app from the App Store or Google Play. Create an account and follow the setup instructions in the app. Make sure to grant the app permission to use Bluetooth and location services.


2. Connect your spray to the app by tapping "Add device" on the home screen, then entering the four-digit code found under the flip top safety lid. You can also add your device by going to Settings > Nearby Plegium Devices and finding your device in the list.

3. Add emergency contacts by clicking "Add contact" in the app and select cell phone numbers from your phone's contact list. With the free version you can add up to 2 emergency contacts, with Plus or Premium subscription up to 7.

Your spray is now connected to your phone and ready to use.

To test all functions except the spray, use a sharp object to slide down the test switch on the side of the product for 10 seconds, then slide it back up. This will activate all features and send out alarms to your emergency contacts (so remember to let them know you are testing it).

Keep in mind that the Plegium app must be open for the location text messages and phone calls to function, it's enough that the app is in the background and the phone can be locked, but if you actively close ("kill") the app it will not be able to receive the signal from your spray that it has been fired.
