Follow these four easy steps to begin protecting your valuables with your newly purchased MyDaigo.

Your MyDaigo transmitter and receiver are paired and ready to go straight out of the package.

Step 1 Turn the power of your transmitter ON by pressing and quickly releasing the button. (If the button is held in for more than three seconds, it will place your transmitter into a pairing mode and you will then need to follow the pairing instructions below.) Click Here for Demo Video

Step 2 Turn the power of your receiver ON by pressing and holding in the power button for three seconds. (The power button is the one closest to the bottom of the receiver which is also closest to the name -mydaigo-. If done correctly, power on will be signaled by seeing the five LED lights at the top of your receiver flash from left to right. If your transmitter is not paired correctly or the transmitter is not powered on, the receiver will auto-shutoff in six seconds to save power.)

Step 3 Set your preferred allowable distance range (short, medium or long) From the POWER ON state ONLY, press and hold the (middle) button for 2 seconds until current range LED starts flashing rapidly. Once the LED begins flashing, press and release the same button to cycle through the ranges available. Once your desired distance is chosen, press and hold the middle button again for 2 seconds (LED will stop flashing) and the range is now set. Click Here for Demo Video

Step 4 Attach your transmitter to the item you wish to protect by peeling off the white paper that is covering the adhesive tape on the underside of your transmitter and attached it to your item or attach it to the plastic backplate included in the package to enable the transmitter to be hung from a loop ring (also included). Carry your receiver with you on a key ring or in your pocket, knowing that your receiver will sound a beeping alarm when you are out of range. 

(IMPORTANT NOTE: the adhesive tape is a standard 3M adhesive tape and the user is advised to NOT attach it to delicate materials such as but not limited to leathers, silks and poor quality plastics. If you have concerns about attaching or removing the tape to a particular item, please contact us prior to attaching the transmitter to your item. You can contact us by simply calling our Toll Free customer service line (1-855-993-2446) or email us at info@mydaigo.com.

Additional Useful Steps to Assist in the Operation of MyDaigo:

Step 5 Turning off the transmitter.  Press and hold button for 3 seconds until LED flashes rapidly 3 times then within 1.5 seconds, release and press the button again quickly to turn off power. (If turn off sequence has completed successfully, 3 rapid flashes will occur before transmitter turns OFF. If not successful, the TX continues to transmit as scheduled and LED flash every 5 seconds) Click Here for Demo Video

Step 6 Turning off the receiver.  Press and hold the (bottom) and the (middle) buttons at the same time for 3 seconds to power down. (Entering the power OFF state is signaled with the five LED lights lighting from right-to-left) Click Here for Demo Video


Pairing MyDaigo Transmitter with Receiver (Setting your transmitter and receiver into pairing mode to establish communication should only have to be done if you remove the battery in either piece or if you accidently place either into pairing mode.) Click Here for Demo Video

To turn transmitter pairing mode on: From the power OFF state ONLY, press and hold the button for 3 sec to enter pairing mode. (Once the LED starts flashing on the 3 second mark, release the button. The LED will continue flashing once every second while in pairing mode. Then place receiver in pairing mode within 60 seconds to allow the two to pair. Pairing state will terminate after 60 seconds if pairing was unsuccessful.)

To turn receiver pairing mode on: From powered OFF state ONLY, press and hold the (bottom) & (top) buttons simultaneously until the left & right LEDs turn on and begin to flash.

**To minimize power consumption, place transmitter in pairing mode first (see transmitter operation above).**

Selecting the alarm sound:

There are three settings you can select for you MyDaigo alarm sound. From powered off state only, press and release the (bottom) button on receiver to cycle through the alerting options: (1 long beep, 3 short beeps, 5 short beeps) The receiver will sound the buzzer upon release. Select your preferred sound. The last sound heard will be the one selected when the power is turned on. 

The following Notes/Tips will further assist in understanding the various options.


(A) The transmitter is the smaller of the two pieces and has one button. The receiver is the larger of two and has three buttons. The receiver buttons are often referred to as the bottom button (which is closest to the name mydaigo), the top button (which is closest to the five LED lights and the middle button (middle of other two).

(B) If the transmitter is turned on and is not paired with the receiver, it will flash slowly 5 times and return to off state. If it has been paired, it will start transmitting as scheduled and blink every 5 seconds (then after 1 minute, it will only flash every 10 seconds to reduce power consumption)

(C) When the transmitter power is on and in low power consumption mode, any quick button press will activate the LED for quick user feedback.


(A)To minimize power consumption, you should have transmitter already turned on before powering up the receiver. This is also true when placing the receiver in pairing mode.

Pairing transmitter to receiver

If unsuccessful, receiver will auto-shutoff after 20 seconds

If the transmitter is detected and received correctly, the LED on the right will flash shortly. Receiver will send an acknowledge signal to the transmitter. The transmitter rapid flashing will terminate pairing mode upon the acknowledge and enter normal ON state. The receiver will wait for the next transmission (5 seconds) flashing left LED and conclude pairing process if transmission is received correctly.

Both receiver and transmitter will resume normal ON modes with the LEDs flashing in sync every 5 seconds. The LED corresponding to the current range selected will flash on receiver.

After 1 minute the flashing is suppressed to save battery power. While flashing suppressed, If range button is pressed shortly, the 1 minute flashing window will be enabled for visual feedback to the user.

Other Notes/Tips:

--If connection communication between the transmitter and receiver is lost, the alarm will signal for 30 seconds followed by a 2 second long beep signaling that they are out of range from one another.

--At anytime during the 30 seconds communication between the two is re-established, the alarm signal will stop and the LED will begin to blink simultaneously again.

--However, if after 30 seconds the communication between the transmitter and receiver is still lost, it will sound the alarm once, followed by a 2 second long beep every five minutes and the cycle repeats until transmitter and receiver are back within range or user powers down the receiver.

--Repairing of the transmitter and receiver once back within in range can sometimes be affected by the surroundings and their effect on the radio frequency signal or by extreme temperature changes. In the case that the transmitter and receiver do not repair/sync with one another, simply power the receiver off and back on to regain effective communication.
