The Propeller system can be set up in two ways to work for children who live in multiple households. If the child’s inhalers move between households, the sensors can sync with either one or both households.
If a carer at each household would like to be able to track the child’s inhaler use, a second carer account can be added to the patient’s account. The family can use the instructions in this article or contact the Propeller Support team to get this set up. The sensors will then sync with the Propeller account in both households and the preventer inhaler reminder sounds should work as expected.
If only one household would like access to the Propeller account, it’s still possible for the child to effectively use Propeller. When the child is at the household that doesn’t have Propeller access, the sensors will log each time the inhaler is used until it’s able to sync with the app again. At that point all previous inhaler uses saved on the sensor will be offloaded into the app. If the child is using a sensor for their daily inhaler and it isn’t able to sync, the reminder sounds will continue to play.
