I don't think your AC is going to work very well with only 50 watts!

Seriously, if your pet(s) is well mannered and doesn't bark at every little noise it hears, there shouldn't be a problem.

I have stayed at a park where the next rv site over had a pet that has been cooped up in the rv for hours on end and continuously barked and barked.....drove me crazy.

There was a bad example of leaving a dog unattended at Bahia Honda while we was there. This poor little black dog was tied outside of a tent in the sun for hours while it's owners where away. It whined more than barked a lot. My wife was tempted to go check on it, but did not want to violate their campsite. The next time we walked around to check on it the owners where there.

Our little puppy makes very little noise so we leave her unattended.

If you leave your pets in a motor home with the AC on and buttoned up nice and tight, what happens if 5 minutes after you pull out for the day, the power goes out for any number of reasons? If you have an auto start on your generator you might be ok, if not, you cook your pets!

We open the windows and pull down all the night shades then turn on both exhaust fans and the TV to keep them from hearing outside noise. If the power goes out the fans run off the batteries. Even on the hottest of days up here in the NE the inside doesn't get that hot, surely not hot enough to bother our dogs

I use these to warn my cell phone when temps go above or below what I've set.

That's a really good suggestion until I get that autostart for my generator. Thanks.

We travel with our dog, but she is well trained and does not bark. If you have barking dogs that are a nusance to others, then many parks will ask you to leave. I know I HATE to be parked next to someone with untrained dogs. Sad part about it, is those owners have ruined it for others.

Good idea about knowing the temps. I'm going to get a big dial thermometer to hang in view of one of the cameras just so that I can monitor it.

Also, I don't know about others, but when we leave the dogs, we generally are not more than 20 minutes away.

Perfect. I've already sent the Sensaphone 400 ad to "the boss" for approval. But what do you need the Verizon home connect for?

I certainly can't speak for others, but I don't KNOW if mine bark or not. They don't bark when we're around, but that may be the whole point. They may bark for the owner to return. It's like trying to see in a refrigerator before the light comes on!

That's why I like all this monitoring stuff. I'd like to KNOW. If they are barkers, then we'll have to address that problem with training.

My cameras have audio too.

You could set up like you were leaving, and then just stay outside being quiet. Probably wouldn't take long to find out what they will do.

The sensaphone needs some sort of telephone connection to work. It's not an Internet or wifi device. The home phone connect is a very cool box. It's a high powered cell transmitter/receiver that you plug any standard phone cord into. It has it's own number, and an internal backup battery that will power it for at least 8 hours or more if the 110v power goes out. The calling plan gives you unlimited minutes for $20 month. So if your in the RV you can place and receive calls with better clarity than your regular cell phone because the box has a large antenna and more transmit power. When you are away from the RV, the sensaphone will alert you to any problems by calling you and speaking in a computerized voice. If you are curious if it's working or not, you can call the home phone connect number - the sensaphone will answer and give you a report of temperature and power status by speaking in its computerized voice. Because it "speaks" to you - it's very user friendly.....everyone can instantly use it and be comfortable.....doesn't require any Internet "apps" or technical knowledge at all to use it.

When we first started RV'ing we asked a couple of RV park neighbors to let us know if our dog barked when we were gone. We also parked down the street and walked close to our MH to see if the dog was barking. In both cases the answer was no. It is a shame that others leave their animals with no consideration to others. Any kind of monitoring idea is great. We starting RV'ing long before wi-fi devices and we had to use the old fashion method I commend you for trying to find out a solution to hopefully something that will not even be a problem.

I just installed a wi-fi thermostat in my S&B so I can monitor the A/C while I am gone. I am a firm believer in monitoring systems and the thermostat has almost paid for itself in the first month with the savings.

Gonna get my wife's phone to call mine and then put hers in the RV and we'll go out for an hour or so. That should help let me know.
