K9 Arson Team Series Part 4: K9 Heat Alarm Pro
Keeping their canine partners safe and healthy is a priority for any handler. K9 HEAT ALARM® Pro is a vehicle temperature monitoring system that ensures that dogs do not freeze or overheat and become ill when they must be left in their handlers' trucks. The K9 HEAT ALARM® Pro monitors vital components including temperature sensors, vehicle battery voltage, and engine stall.
President of FireK9.org and user of this product, Troy Morrison, explained, "To have your partner in the vehicle and it's all locked up, it doesn't take long before the temperature will really start rising, so it's important for us to protect our partner."
K9 Heat Alarm Pro features include:
• AceK9 E.S.M. Engine Stall Monitor™ Feature - Alerts handler when the engine stalls and the A/C has stopped cooling before the interior temperature rises.
• "Forget Me Not" AUTO ON Feature- Detection systems and pressure mats detect presence of K9 in the vehicle, eliminating the issue of forgetting the K9 in the vehicle.
• AceK9 S.O.S Horn Honk™- "Makes the vehicle horn sound like no other".
• Siren Activation
• Light Bar Activation
• Dual Window Drop Module
• Dual Remote Temperature Sensors with extended 15' cables
• Most accurate K9 Temperature Sensors on the market with accuracy better than 0.5° F Dual real-time resolution 0.1° F
• Dual Purpose Alert, Monitors Hot & Cold with Exclusive Acek9 Cold Alert™
• Full alphanumeric LCD display - Comprehensive status reports with easy setup.
• Modular design allows options to be added to fit your specifications or as budget allows.
• Non-volatile memory for temperature alarm setting - Temperature alarm setting is permanent until user reprograms.
• Monitors and displays vehicle battery voltage - Sets off alarm before battery failure.
• Complete self-diagnostics of both control head and temperature sensors - Warns if problem with one temperature sensor and sets off alarm if both sensors fail.
Morrison claimed that while at a training session in Tulare, California, he went into class setting his Heat Alarm Pro even though it was an overcast, cloudy day. "I got a page during the class, came out. Sure enough, it had alarmed and it did what it was supposed to do," added Morrison.
"What it does is it will alert me by pager. So this pager is hooked to the same system, so when it goes to high temperature alarm, it will set this pager off. Also, simultaneously, the alarm will start the vehicle and start the air conditioning. It will roll the window down and pop the back hatch and start a fan blowing across my dog," stated Morrison. If a handler does not have a pager, the system can be programmed to sound the vehicle's horn repeatedly instead.
According to Morrison, instructions say that the owner should test the system everyday to make sure it is in proper working order. Morrison added, "If it hits a low set point, it will roll down the windows and start the fan. If it hits the high set point, it will actually start the vehicle and the air conditioner will come on."
"As far as I'm concerned, for the person that's even the lay person that brings their dog everywhere with them, it's very affordable and worthwhile," expressed Morrison.
