Blueforce Partners with flowthings.io and Senaya to Deliver a Life Saving Solution for Military and Police Working Dog Transportation

Every year police and military working dogs die after being left in unattended and overheated vehicles. In almost every case, the handler was diligent in ensuring vehicle air conditioning was on, but engines are known to stop or overheat, which results in super-heated air being pushed into the vehicle. Admittedly, the warmest regions of the country are more aware of this threat than others, but dogs, both working and non-working, have succumbed to heat emergencies in every region of our nation. No place is immune from this terrible fact.

In just ten minutes the temperature inside a vehicle can rise twenty degrees, and in just twenty minutes it can rise by thirty degrees. At sixty minutes the temperature can be more than forty degrees higher inside a motor vehicle as compared to outside temperature.

The K9 In-Vehicle Environmental Monitoring system delivers an inexpensive solution for monitoring the temperature inside of K9 transportation vehicles and makes that information sharable to handlers, command staff, and dispatch personnel in real-time. The solution consists of a cellular-enabled sensor and backup battery that together monitors temperature inside the vehicle and communicates its data in real-time to a cloud-based rules, workflow, and notification engine for 24 hour a day protection.
