About this project
Petguard is finally here!
This product will help YOU train & manage behavioural issues in household pets even when you're not at home! If you have behavioural issues that you can't manage such as:
1. Pet's wandering in places where they shouldn't be
2. Scratching or damaging items in the house
3. Pets walking on kitchen benches
4. Searching through the trash can
5. Going too close to your young children (babies/toddlers)
This is a fantastic brand NEW product that will help you establish the correct rules & boundaries for you and your family. Read on...
Sometimes your Pets can be a handful...
... and you're not alone in wanting a solution.
Petguard monitors your Pets all the time, and warns you whenever they enter an area where they shouldn't be, so you can remove them before damage is done, and train them to do what's best.
With simplicity built into every aspect, Petguard works with you to keep your whole family happy and safe - two and four legged alike!
You can even set a schedule so that Petguard automatically switches from anaudible alarm, to an Ultrasonic alarm that only your Pet can hear.
The Ultrasonic alarm discourages your pets from staying where they shouldn't be. This allows Petard to work silently without disturbing you. That way Petguard keeps working even while you sleep.
As pet owners ourselves, we know that a key factor in achieving dependable good behaviour in Pets is consistency. But we also know that work and social life can limit the amount of time we get to spend with our Pets.
The real power of Petguard is the consistency it provides. By always knows when you Pet enters an area, you can train them. Over time, with Petguard and proper training, your Pets will learn to stay away from those areas that you decide are unsafe or unhygienic for them to be.
With the Companion App, you can even view a history of where you Pets have been - and how often - so you can see their improvement over time.
Petguard is built from the ground up on innovative, modern technology that keeps your Pets safe in ways that haven’t been possible until now.
Using Ultrasonic waves in conjunction with Radio waves, Petguard is able to accurately measure line-of-sight distances between a Sentinel and a Pet Tag to within a few centimetres – astounding accuracy for a wireless technology. Ranging works up to an 8 meter diameter from the sentinel, so you can protect an area, big or small.
Petguard is currently a fully working system, which has been tested and verified. All that's left to do is add a few final features, and gear up for production.
When you back Petguard at the "GET PETGUARD" level or higher, you will receive one Sentinel and one Pet Tag, and you'll be ready to protect an area of your home from your Pet.
You can also order additional Sentinels and Pet Tags, up to a maximum of 5 of each. Here's how it works...
We will send out a survey after the campaign ends so you can tell us exactly what you would like to receive - just make sure that you've pledged enough in addition to your chosen reward!
To reach our funding goal, just 500 people need to back our campaign, to make the tooling cost of the product viable.
If we receive more pledges, however, then we have a lot more great features which we'll be able to add onto Petguard to make it that much better for everyone!
If reached, all backers will have the option of choosing from Orange, Black or the original White plastics for both their Sentinels and Pet Tags!
If reached, all backers will be able to access helpful training tips, built right into the Companion App!
If reached, all backers will be able to access social media sharing functions, built right into the Companion App, so you can share your pet's progress with the world!
Risks and challenges
The team at Sensonix is comprised of over a dozen professional engineers and designers, with decades of experience releasing high quality products. Our team has developed numerous ground breaking products for consumer, industrial, automotive, and biomedical applications.
The Petguard Sentinel and Tag hardware - as well as the iOS app - have already been developed, and have been working as functional units for the past several months. The funds collected from this Kickstarter are going towards tooling and plastics costs, development of the Android version of the app, and final product polish - not core development - which means that there is very little risk that we will not be able to deliver Petguard on time and within budget.
Petguard will also come with a 3 month replacement warranty, so you can be sure you're receive a high quality, consumer ready product when you back us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
