Joan and I have been traveling in our RV with our kitties, Mink and Molly since 2014. Since we travel throughout the year, we have always been concerned when we are away from the 5th wheel for several hours on end wanting to ensure the kitties are safe, especially when we are in very hot climates. Losing power or an air conditioner in the hot summer months would lead to quick dehydration or worse, heat stroke for our Mink and Molly.
Over the years we have tried a number of WiFi style temperature monitors using a cellular hotspot for Internet access, but haven’t found a unit that performed well overtime. Also, cellular hotspots can be a high budget item and for many prevents using this type of Internet when traveling in an RV. And adding to the challenge, depending on campground WiFi for pet monitoring is virtually impossible. Either the WiFi is unreliable or nonexistent altogether. Fortunately we now have a reliable and affordable solution to monitor temperature and power in the RV with the Waggle RV Pet Monitor.
How The Waggle RV Pet Monitor Works
The Waggle RV Pet Temperature Monitor works via a built-in Verizon 4G cellular data to monitor temperature and alert you via App, Text & Email about any potential unsafe temperature or power outage condition for your pet in an RV, car, or home. And best yet, no WiFi is needed.
Using the Waggle phone app, the unit can be configured to monitor variable settings for high and low temperatures, humidity, inform when the power goes out or returns in the RV and the remaining battery life of the unit in the event of a power failure. The unit also shows signal strength of the attached Verizon cell tower to ensure the unit is capable of communicating to the associated phone app.
Installing The Waggle RV Pet Monitor
Installing the Waggle could not be easier. Scan the QR code for the iOS or Android phone. Scan the QR code on the back of the Waggle device. Purchase one of the three monitoring plans. Then peel and stick the mounting bracket to the wall, plug in and the unit is ready to go.
The settings in the app allow you to set the high and low temperature and humidity levels for reporting.
See our video below for more information on our review, installation and steps to configure the app.
