Pet collar texts you if things get, uh, hot under the collar
A useful high-tech treat for your pet may be coming soon: a collar that sends you a text when dog or cat gets too hot.
The Internet-connected potential life-saver is a project of Rethink Toronto on behalf of the Toronto Humane Society, tech site Mashable reported.
Mashable said the collar seeks to prevent scenarios where pets die after being left inside a hot parked car.
It said the collar uses a coded chip, a SIM card and a thermistor to send a text when the temperature eclipses 26 degrees Celsius around the dog.
Rethink was quoted as telling the Toronto Star the “Dog Caller” should be available next year for around $20. — TJD, GMA News
