If you’re worried about battery usage:
If you’re having issues with the Openpath Android App, we recommend you first and foremost send feedback. Sending feedback helps us to more quickly narrow down what the problem is and get you up and running. How do I send feedback from the mobile app?
After sending feedback, we recommend you also try the following:
Make sure your device is running Android 5.1 or newer
Verify location settings are turned on for your device by going to your phone's settings
Verify location and Bluetooth services are on for the Openpath app by going to the Openpath App settings. Why does the Openpath app need to know my location?
If the app shows you're out of range, you may need to restart your Bluetooth by going into your phone Settings, disable Bluetooth, wait 30 seconds, enable Bluetooth, and then check the app it shows you're within range of the entry.
If your location and Bluetooth services are on but the Wave to Unlock/Touch feature works intermittently, please disable any battery optimization or battery saver features on the Openpath app. How do I improve Wave to Unlock reliability on Android?
If you've tried all the previous steps and you're still having issues, you may want to try installing the beta app. We're constantly trying to improve our mobile app experience, and it's possible the beta app will have addressed your issues.

If none of the above steps work, please send feedback again and contact Neowit support.
