  • Can I lend my Cycloop-equipped bike to a friend?

    Toggle FAQ question answer

    You can do that. You have several options here:

    1. If you want to lend your bicycle and want it to remain protected, give your Cycloop-equipped bicycle and the Cycloop Key Fob to a friend. This way, the bicycle remains protected. If an alarm is activated, you will receive a call and push notifications to your phone.

    2. If you only give your Cycloop-equipped vehicle to a friend without a Key Fob – you can send Monimoto to snooz for up to 24 hours. This way, however, it will not remain protected for 24 hours, as it will not register any movement. After the snooz period passes, the device will return to its Armed state.

    3. If you give your Cycloop-equipped vehicle to a friend without the Key Fob, you will constantly get locations in 5min periods until there is a movement.
