Kanairi was not designed to be a life saving device. Kanairi is designed to provide the early alert notification that may get you help faster. If Kanairi can provide an early alert notification that leads to someone getting the medical attention they need faster, then the hard work and dedication we have committed to this product is completely worth it.
No. In order for Kanairi to send the automated SMS messages to your emergency contacts in the event of an accident, the iPhone running our app must be within cellular range. If the iPhone does lose cellular service, the app will continue to operate as normal and track your accelerometer data, however, Kanairi will not be able to send the SMS messages until you are within cellular range once more.
Kanairi allows users to program their emergency contacts as any real phone number within the United States. Each user is can program up to three emergency contacts. We do not allow 911 or any short code emergency numbers to be programmed into the app.
Kanairi monitors the accelerometer metrics of both the Kanairi Sensor and your iPhone, while comparing them against a preset velocity threshold. Once both accelerometers have reached or exceeded the threshold, your emergency contacts will be contacted with your current GPS location. This logic was modeled after the system modern vehicles use to determine whether or not airbags need to be deployed in a collision.
The Kanairi Sensor does not have an on/off switch. Rather, when not in use by our app, the sensor automatically enters a sleep mode that is used to conserve energy. Most likely you will need to charge the sensor every one or two weeks depending on consistency of use. We recommend checking the battery level and charging your sensor prior to any extended use.
Both the Kanairi Sensor and the iPhone must be fully operational for the product to work. If one or both of the devices run out of battery, the program will not be able to perform its duties.
In the Kanairi Starter Kit includes a micro-USB cable and charging brick. Users should use this charging brick and cable to ensure your sensor is charged adequately prior to use.
Our app and the Kanairi Sensor communicate accelerometer data at a rate of 50 milliseconds. This means that the sensor and app communicate to each other twenty times per second. We this accelerated sample rate to increase the likelihood that the alert goes through in the event that you are in a collision that destroys the sensor. Theoretically, it is possible for the sensor to break before it is able to send the high accelerometer data, but it would have to be faster than 50 milliseconds. In most cases, the sensor will send the high accelerometer data to the phone before it breaks, and then the phone will get the SMS messages out correctly.
The Kanairi Sensor is designed to be water resistant, not waterproof. You should ensure that the Kanairi Sensor is not submerged in water or exposed to continuous moisture.
Kanairi works great with any activity where there is a possibility of a fall, collision, or accident. We have tested it on hiking, motorcycles, bicycles, rock climbing and motor vehicles.
The Kanairi Sensor does not significantly impact the battery life on your phone. Where the Bluetooth streaming may cause the battery life to decrease a bit faster, we have found that the streaming can be on for hours and does not impact battery life significantly more than any other app you use.
The automated SMS message will read:
Hey [Emergency Contact], [Kanairi Owner]’s Kanairi Sensor has been triggered. Their GPS coordinates are 43.726714658087523,-123.48609610901697.

If you feel that emergency services may be needed, use the map provided to find the nearest police department to their location.
Yes, Kanairi uses your account login to access your emergency contacts at the moment of an accident. Prior to use, the user must log into their account prior to pairing to the Kanairi Sensor.
If the Kanairi sensor is not showing up on the device locater screen, make sure you have Bluetooth switched to the on position in your iPhone. If that does not work, try turning the Bluetooth on your iPhone off and then on again. If the connection state is “connected (LIMITED)”, hit the “Unbind Others” button on the app, then turn the connection switch on again. If none of this seems to resolve the issue, please contact us at email@example.com or (541) 788-7601.
