Your dog's name

During the onboarding, you'll be able to customize the app with your dog's name and picture.

Messages

This is where all of the alerts we send you will show up. The alerts will be shown as "emails from your dog".

How your dog feels

This block of text quickly shows you how your dog is feeling, either cold, getting cold, comfortable, getting hot or hot.

Heat Index Gage

The heat index gage needle moves to show you where the current heat index is either inside or outside your dog's safe range.

Heat Index

The heat index combines temperature and humidity to tell you how your dog actually feels. When it's humid, your dog will feel much hotter than when it's dry.

Minimum Heat Index

The minimum safe temperature for your dog is set by default at 40° based on recommendations from our vet partners. You'll be able to customize it for your dog.

Maximum Heat Index

The maximum safe temperature for your dog is set by default at 90° based on recommendations from our vet partners. You'll be able to customize it for your dog.

Temperature

The app reads temperature directly from the PuppComm and uses it to calculate Heat Index. You can set it display in °F or °C.

Humidity

The app reads the humidity directly from the PuppComm and uses it to calculate the heat index.

Timer

The timer starts when you turn on the PuppComm to keep track of how long your dog has been in the car. You can customize alerts to go off after certain time intervals.

Battery Charge

The app keeps track of the PuppComm's battery's charge and displays it here. You'll get alerts before the battery gets low so you have plenty of time to charge it.

Signal Strength

The app keeps track of the signal coming from the PuppComm and displays it here. You'll get alerts if the signal strength decreases so know to get back in range.

Not paying attention? We still are.

The PuppComm sends you smart, customizable and persistent notifications so you can know about any changes before they're problems. Click the button below to see how it works.

When you set up your new PuppComm our proprietary BSCUIT algorithm sets the break points for the 5 "status levels" for your dog. Here they're set for our CEO's Labrador Retriever Clovis but they'll be different for every dog. These status levels determine when the app sends you alerts.

Currently the heat-index at the PuppComm is a comfy 57º. We don't send you alerts while your dog is comfy, but we'll start sending them as soon as the heat-index at your PuppComm moves out of your dog's comfort range. Let's see what happens when the heat-index starts to move.

Choose a direction for the temperature to start moving.

The heat index at the PuppComm can change quickly which is why it's important for you to know about these changes. You'll receive an alert right when the heat-index moves out of your dog's comfort range.

Now that your dog is we'll keep sending you alerts every ten minutes until the heat index goes back to your dog's comfort range or you return to your PuppComm to take care of your dog.

If the heat-index at your PuppComm keeps going so that your dog becomes we'll send you an alert right away and then another alert every five minutes until the heat-index starts going back to down, or you return to take care of your dog. These alerts can get annoying but that's the point, we need to make sure you know that your dog needs you.

That's it. You can restart the demo if you want to play through it again.
