LAS VEGAS, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PetHub.com announced today a breakthrough in pet safety and companion animal protection with the launch of its new, evolutionary PetHub Signal™ electronic ID tag.
The electronic device is the size of a standard pet ID tag and includes up to 2 years of battery life (battery is replaceable). Through both a mobile application and access to the Internet cloud, the PetHub Signal is able to alert an owner immediately to an animal leaving their side. This is especially critical to those looking to protect their animals from theft -- a problem that happens to 2 million family dogs annually -- as well as for pet owners who have adventurous dogs always looking to go on unauthorized escapades.
"Our PetHub Signal™ tag not only alerts a pet caretaker when their animal strays from their side, it shows which way they went," said Tom Arnold, Founder & CEO of PetHub, Inc. "Through a mobile application on your iPhone or Android device, you can also cause the tag to 'chirp' and flash its LED light to help in the location of your four-legged loved one, especially critical in a low visibility setting. It's like having a virtual fence surrounding you and your pet, with you at the center."
The water-resistant PetHub Signal tag -- which links to a free online PetHub.com profile -- uses Bluetooth™ technology to pair with a caretaker's mobile device. In addition, the Signal tag also has a speaker, LED, and accelerometers to track an animal's motion and level of activity. The Signal tag also includes an internal thermometer that can be used to send an alert if the temperature is measuring too high or too low.
"We foresee this not only being used by pet owners, but also by pet sitters, pet hotels, and anyone else who has an animal entrusted to their care," said Lorien Clemens, Director of Marketing at PetHub, Inc.
The PetHub Signal™ tag debuts at the Super Zoo 2014 tradeshow taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from July 22 – 24. Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) is $69.95 and includes a 1-year warranty. The mobile application that accompanies the product is free and includes a lifetime free basic subscription to PetHub.com which includes PetHub's 24x7 "Found Pet Hotline."
