Roameo: Like Lojack for Dogs

by


RoamEO GPS for DogsWe’d all like to think that Rover would know how to find his way home if he got lost, but this nifty bit of high-tech gear could help to stack the odds in your pups favor.

The RoamEO system is a sophisticated GPS tracking system for your dog. The device lets you keep track of your pets in up to a 1-mile radius and can display their exact location on a portable tracking device. It can monitor the locations of up to three dogs on the device’s color LCD screen, as well as their current movements and how fast they’re traveling. The RoamEO can also be set to automatically alert you if your pet strays beyond a pre-set boundaries.

The RoamEO system retails for $499, including the tracker and one GPS collar. Additional collars are $159 each.

    What a great idea to allow dogs to roam large areas without supervision.

    But I seem to have missed the description that explained the warning alarm that goes off when the unsupervised dogs are chewing the arm off of a 5 year old kid at the playground. There is usually a story once a month about pit bull, mastiff, etc. attacks. And then the owner will say, “but he is really a good dog”.

    Whats your Point. What does eating 5 yo kids have to do with a tracking collar for dogs?

    #2, #1 is just another lap-rat lover who is scared of any dog taller than his ankles. Just ignore him.

    Is there a gps chip that can be placed under the dogs skin? The collar is the first thing someone will remove if they have stolen your pet.

  5. technabob says:

    I don’t think so. The antenna needed for GPS would probably be way to big to conceal that way.

  6. Sparty says:

    Okay, neat. Why not take the alarm output signal and relay that signal to a transmitter that will train/contain your dog? Did someone already have intellectual property on this idea?

    Sounds like a great opportunity for a hack to get the ideal combination of easy installation and configurable fence boundary.

    ANyone have any background on this?
