Wor­ried about my new­est mem­ber of the fam­ily, I de­cided to or­der a Pet Tem­per­a­ture Mon­i­tor on­line. (I saw the cool ad at

www.sun­cruis­er­me­ Or­der­ing was sim­ple and, as a bonus I re­ceived a $30 dis­count at the check­out. The ship­ping to Canada was seam­less and I re­ceived the unit in about a week. It was a lit­tle larger than my postal box so I did have to go pick it up.

Nat­u­rally, I couldn’t stand the wait and wanted to try this new elec­tronic de­vice out as soon as I got home. I don’t nor­mally use in­struc­tions ( be­cause I am a man) but this time I thought I would give it a try. It was ac­tu­ally quite sim­ple to charge and set up the unit. In about 10 min­utes it was ready to go - I barely even needed the in­struc­tions.

The next step was to down­load the App. I went to the App store and typed in “RV Pet Safety” and bingo, there I was adding it to my home­screen. From this point I was able to cus­tom­ize my screen with a photo of my fluffy friend, as well as change the set­tings to re­flect de­grees in Cel­sius (in­stead of Fahren­heit.) There are many other cus­tom­iz­a­ble fea­tures that I could re­vise to suit my needs.

So now was the fun part – test­ing out the alarm. I didn’t think it would be pos­si­ble to drop the tem­per­a­ture to freez­ing in my rig so I turned off the AC for a lit­tle while and soon started to get a lit­tle sticky. The tem­per­a­ture climbed quickly and as soon as it hit 26 de­grees, which is the limit I had set, the alarm start­ing squawk­ing. It is a unique sound and it will def­i­nitely get your at­ten­tion.

I was amazed by the ther­mo­stat ac­cu­racy on the small unit. When I leave my pet, my mind will be com­pletely at ease be­cause I know she will be safe. The Pet Safety Mon­i­tor is trust­wor­thy and re­li­able and in my opin­ion, if you are trav­el­ing with pets, it makes com­plete sense to have one of these units on board.
