The “Armed” feature in the Scout app is for turning the vibration sensor on and off. This feature is mainly for use on vehicles, not for pets or children.

How It Works

Once the Armed feature is turned on, the Scout will arm the vibration sensor once the unit is stationary for 4 minutes. Once armed, even the slightest movement will send an alert directly to your phone within seconds even if GPS signal isn’t available.

If you were to have this feature on and moved your vehicle, you would get an alert and the sensor would be inactive until the vehicle is stationary again for 4 minutes – at this point Scout would rearm itself automatically.
