The Propeller system can be set up 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 caregiver at each household would like to be able to track the child’s inhaler use, a second caregiver account can be added to the patient’s account. The family can use the instructions in this article or reach out to the Propeller Support team to get this set up. The sensors will then sync with the Propeller account with both households and controller 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 store each time the inhaler is used until it’s able to sync with the app again. At that point all past 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.
