Using a new app and innovative sensor you can now become more connected to your horse thanks to the team at Fouganza
Finding simple, easy solutions that make riders’ lives easier is what drives the team at Fouganza and their latest innovation, the BE CONNECTED app and thermal sensor, doesn’t disappoint. Designed to let you know if your horse is too hot, too cold or just right under his rug, BE CONNECTED helps you rug up or down accordingly.
How it works
Secured next to your horse’s skin in a special shoulder bib pocket, the BE CONNECTED sensor links to a free mobile phone app via Bluetooth, collecting data when you’re near the sensor (up to 30m without interference). Data collected, it sends an alert to your smartphone when the temperature exceeds the hot and cold thresholds you’ve set. So, in just one click, you can collect and analyse his temperature so that you can choose the most suitable rug for him. The app collects and stores these measurements as often as you choose – every 15 minutes, every hour… and all the info you need is displayed directly on your mobile phone screen.
Among others, the outside humidity and thickness of your horse’s hairs are two important factors for determining his comfort zone. So, in order to provide reliable information, the BE CONNECTED app takes into account your horse’s hair type (clipped, summer coat or winter coat) and, based on this, it can readjust accordingly.
