Question: Where do I setup my pet information for when someone finds them?
Answer: For the 1X collar, you will go to 411pet.net and "Set up collar" and will manage the collar there.

Question: How do I identify my pets “Last Location” if lost ?
Answer: Our 2X products work ingeniously via our proprietary Bluetooth module which integrates with one of the largest global Crowd Locate Networks in the world no service fees, no monthly fees, no hidden costs.

Note: this feature acts as an extremely large, global “Lost & Found Community”; the collar’s Bluetooth module looks for a Crowd Locate Network user every eight (8) seconds.
