Pet Monitor Safety

We just purchased a new Thor Chateau 29g and are planning some June and July travel. We would like to leave our dog in the motor home occasionally, with the AC on and worry about a sudden shutdown of power or AC function.

What are recommendations for temperature or video warning devices/systems. The Nimble RV PetSafety thing looks nice, but if your 110 is down, it won't work.

All suggestions and advice will be appreciated.

If you do a search, you will find several discussions on the topic. I personally use the temp stick which is battery operated and simply monitors the temperature in conjunction with an AGS. Others use a security camera with a thermometer such as the CANARY. The issue you are going to experience is some of those security cameras require a subscription and also require a significant amount of bandwidth to upload... and that there lies one of the main issues, reliable internet to receive those remote alerts. Your best bet if going to be a cellular jetpack. I hope this helps a little and wish you the best of luck.

I too use the Temp Stick, works great. Makes me feel much better about our dog, in the motorhome, knowing the Temp Stick will text me if the interior temp exceeds what I set it for. I thought about the camera, but decided, dealing with the need for a subscription and possible band width issues led me to the simpler Temp Stick. Amazon has it, if you are interested.

We have the CANARY, and if you are happy with.24 hours.of stored video, then there is no subscriptions


You get temp alerts along with intrusion and air quality

We plug it into an USB port pulling power.From the coach batteries.

We have a phone we use for.mobile hotspot so.iy first tie up our normal phones

We like the overall security of it for the pups, as well as the RV.

Thanks. I ordered one from Amazon. Next step is to check Verizon for the Wifi thing.

Check FMCA. They have an exclusive MiFi deal with Verizon including free Jetpack that sounds like a pretty good deal.

If you are thinking about a Temp Stick... ordering direct from manufacturer is typically $10 cheaper than on Amazon - but today only (was yesterday too - extended to today) - there is a coupon on site for an additional $10 off.
Ideal Sciences — Smart Sensor Technology

Have one on the way... (Free USPS Priority Mail shipping too.)
