RoamEO for Pets

8 Sep


The RoamEO Location System is designed for pet owners to quickly and accurately locate their pets by using state-of-the art GPS technology. RoamEO displays the concise, easy to read information on a color LCD screen that allows you to locate your pet and shows you his current movements.

Each RoamEO system consists of a portable, handheld device that displays information received from the GPS-enabled collar on your dog. The handheld device uses a color LCD to show the location, direction and velocity of your pet. RoamEO is designed to update readings every few seconds, giving you a continuous stream of real-time information.

RoamEO uses an ordinary collar that is equipped with GPS technology. Just snap the collar on your dog, turn it on, and RoamEO is operational. The RoamEO handheld unit can track up to three dogs simultaneously. A collar is required for each dog.

RoamEO has been designed so that you can set up a GPS Fence. RoamEO uses GPS coordinates that you establish by walking the perimeter of your desired fence, and commits them to memory. If your pet exits this perimeter, an audible alarm will sound. For example, you may wish to establish your property line as the perimeter for your pet. After setting up your fence, this information would be stored in your system and if your dog wanders off your property, the alarm will sound. Because this boundary is electronic, you can erase and create new ones as often as you like, giving you the flexibility for any situation or condition.

RoamEO uses rechargeable batteries in both the handheld unit and the collar, so there is no need to purchase batteries for your system. The AC adapters are provided.

The price of a complete RoamEO kit is $459.00 (includes only one collar), adiditional collars are available for $149 each.
