SAN ANTONIO, TX, March 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Br8kthroo announces the development of its innovative TechyDogs Collar, a smart collar that takes connectivity to a whole new level for the modern pet owner. As a GPS dog collar equipped with Zigbee wireless technology, the TechyDogs Collar provides greater insight into the pet behavior and gives owners the ability to monitor their pet's health and well being, even when away from them.
"We wanted to create a collar that helped bridge the gap between pet and owner," stated Eliud Lamboy, Co-founder of the TechyDogs project. "With the TechyDogs Collar, we have done that."
The primary goal of the TechyDogs Collar is to monitor the pet's activities. Using a gyroscope and accelometer, the collar monitors activity level and behaviors so pet owners can keep tabs on their pets' health, even providing health alerts when behavior changes. These activities are transmitted via a Zigbee connection to the owner's social media accounts, posting from the dog's perspective, to keep owners apprised of their pet's activities throughout the day. A young man with a pitbull, for example, may see "Aw, this is nice...fresh poop, smelly pee. I could walk around here all day" as a message from his dog on his Facebook wall.
Safety is also an important feature of the device, which is why it includes GPS. The TechyDogs Collar's security feature activates if the device detaches from the dog, alerting the owner to a potential problem and allowing the owner to take action quickly.
When asked what makes the TechyDogs Collar different, Mr. Lamboy said, "In addition to the cutting-edge tech in the collar, we've added gamification. The TechyDogs Collar gives pet owners access to the TechyDogs online community where they can earn badges and advanced ranking within our community. We believe that this will encourage pet owners to take a more active role in protecting their pets' health."
"For technology lovers who are also pet owners, the TechyDogs Collar is the answer," said Mr. Lamboy. "We are pleased to bring this next generation of technology-enhanced dog collars to the public."
