NIGHTWATCH® is the World's first smart halter™ (optional safety collar) designed to alert you via text, phone call, and/or email at the early signs of equine distress, such as colic or being cast. This revolutionary, patent-protected device monitors real-time data on your horse’s vital signs and behaviors, works across cellular and Wi-Fi networks, offers GPS tracking, and adapts to your horse over time as the system learns their unique and normal patterns and parameters.
All technology is non-invasively embedded within the padded leather crown of either a breakaway halter or safety collar, specially-designed by Freedman's, making NIGHTWATCH® safe and comfortable for long-term use on horses in a variety of conditions. Each halter/collar contains multiple sensors, state-of-the art processors, transceivers, rechargeable batteries, and other small electronics in a flexible water- and dust-resistant enclosure providing long-term durability, reliability, and performance.
Our novel application of ultra-wide band impulse radar to monitor heart and respiratory rates eliminates the need for direct contact with your animal while other sensors (i.e., accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, altimeters, GPS) allow you the ability to know your horse's activity, motion, posture, and location at all times.
Gain access to insight as well as real-time and historical information, including your horse's EDI™ score, through an intuitive smartphone application and web dashboard.
Launch the NIGHTWATCH® application to get a snapshot of your horse anytime. Customize notification and account settings, add horses and authorized viewers, share valuable insights with care team members, and more.
Continuous real-time monitoring by NIGHTWATCH® offers 24/7 protection and peace of mind for less than $1 per day with an annual monitoring contract and license (after initial purchase).
Protequus® is committed to making NIGHTWATCH® available in the United States and Canada in late 2017, and is aggressively working in collaboration with Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, NRGXP, Freedman’s, and other strategic partners to test and refine our technology to deliver unprecedented results and value.
