    So my daughters sensor was on for a week and due for a restart. I stopped and started the sensor and before the 2 hours was up, she went over to a neighbor's house and left the receiver at home. So now its had signal loss for an hour. DO I just "stop sensor" and then start it up again once she gets home? or are you not able to stop and start more than once? Or should I just wait till she gets back in range and see what it does?

    Wait and see what it does. It may be fine! If not restart. Yes, you can start and stop as many times as you need. The receiver thinks it's a new sensor each time. Good luck!

    Just be careful not to hit "Shut down" instead of "Stop" before re-starting.
