Hello,

I purchased a Smart Tag 2 to track a medical device I used. 

I've turned on "Notify me when left behind" but I've tested leaving the house and waking 50m or so and it doesn't alert me that I left it behind.

What is the distance it will reach before it will alert me?

Thanks

Dawn

Not sure of the exact distance, but would have thought 50m is more than enough, though depends upon mobile and GPS signal, I find when leaving home WIFI, the swap to Mobile takes a bit longer.

I use this setting for my watch and it works fairly quickly allot less than 50m

If it's at a safe place, then you will not get any notification (if the setting is turned on).

Thanks all

I don't have a "safe location" turned on.

I'll try again tomorrow with WiFi off and see if that makes a difference.

I'm having trouble with this as well! I bought these to remind me if I leave something at home or work when I leave, but I'm not getting the notifications that it was left behind. I even got a message in Smart Things Find that they are often left behind, do I want to turn on a safe place?! Ugh I don't get it... My Tiles warned me all the time once I got down the driveway.
