Dog Lighthouse

Dog Lighthouse is still in an active development phase, and we're working on it intensively.

Dog Lighthouse is an innovative multifunctional device primarily designed for tracking and ensuring the safety of your canine companion. With a sophisticated attachment to your dog's harness, you get several safety features in one. The device we develop features lighting in multiple modes for user (dog) visibility, integrated GNSS (GPS, Galileo and Glonass) technology for real-time location tracking, as well as sound and vibration elements to alert your pet if something is amiss. However, this is just a brief list of the features that the device offers.

Dog Lighthouse becomes an essential partner for dog owners who want the assurance that their beloved pet is always safe. We believe that with the Dog Lighthouse device, a new era in dog safety begins. Join us and be among the first to not only own but also experience this technology.

Basic Features

Compared to competitors, we offer: Our product stands out with GNSS (GPS, Galileo and Glonass) support and LoRa technology, ensuring maximum position accuracy compared to regular GPS and excellent connectivity even in areas with no mobile signal. We provide intelligent lighting in all directions with various modes for maximum safety. Additionally, we include features that competitors lack, such as wildlife detection or heart rate monitoring.


    Warning Safety Features

  • Light signaling with white light in front, green light on the sides, and red light at the rear ensures clear visibility for over 500 meters, maximizing your dog's visibility.
  • Illuminates the area up to a distance of 5 meters, allowing you to see what's happening around your dog.
  • Dog Lighthouse provides visibility when moving on the ground thanks to orange or white warning flashing.
  • Dog Lighthouse emits sound and vibration warnings to alert your pet that something is wrong - this alert allows you to call your dog or give it another command.

    Intelligent Features and Connectivity

  • Virtual fence, health monitoring including heart rate, wildlife proximity detector, tap control, and SOS function.
  • Thanks to integrated NFC, anyone can read data for the safe return of the dog to the owner by placing a mobile phone nearby.
  • Real-time dog tracking with long battery life.
  • Control through a mobile app, enabling efficient remote communication, and with the combination of GNSS (GPS, Galileo and Glonass), GSM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, you will stay connected with your dog anywhere in the world
  • With us, you won't have to pay any subscription fees for services, everything will be included in the price of Dog Lighthouse.
  • Dog Lighthouse features hook and magnets for easy attachment in various locations.

    Versatile Use - Not Just for Dogs

  • The "warning triangle" function can be used to mark a location where an unexpected bicycle or car repair is taking place.
  • Flashlight - if you're in nature and don't have lighting with you, Dog Lighthouse will illuminate the necessary area up to a distance of 5 meters.
  • Thanks to the digital compass, you will always know the correct direction without needing to rely on navigation.
  • Pre-settable alarm clock.

    Elegant Design with Accessories

  • Easy one-handed attachment and removal from the harness, with a secure and reliable grip that will never fall off.
  • Interchangeable covers allowing personalization of Dog Lighthouse to match your individual preferences.
  • Possibility to attach action cameras and other accessories.

New Webdesing and logo

10/1/2024

With joy, we announce the launch of our newly designed website! The new layout brings richer content and a modern look that aligns with current trends. Our goal with this update is to enhance your user experience and provide more information in an attractive environment. In addition to redesigning the layout, we have also refreshed our logo to better reflect our innovation and modern approach.

It's Out There

31/10/2023

This date marks the launch of these websites and the introduction of the Dog Lighthouse project to the public. Our main intention is to build awareness about the project and gain support for our vision.

Team and Prototype 2

21/9/2023

The day I realized that I couldn't do it without help. I decided to involve my friends in the project. At the same time, I started developing Prototype Version 2, which will bring numerous improvements.

In the Field

14/6/2023

After several months of field testing, I achieved amazing results. The Dog Lighthouse, which is now attached with a special holder that secures it with one hand, lights up around the perimeter in various situations and communicates with the dog using vibrations or whistles. This version is equipped with support for GNSS (GPS, Galileo and Glonass), Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. During development, I made a total of 81 different modifications from the original concept and fine-tuned the design to the last detail.

First Official Prototype 1

26/10/2022

The prototype was created on the day I named the project "Dog Lighthouse." On the same day, I installed advanced electronics with support for GNSS (GPS, Galileo and Glonass), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and various sensors into Dog Lighthouse. In addition, the design itself underwent a change, and special mounting mechanisms were used instead of Velcro straps. This was followed by a period of field testing.

Improvement

21/9/2022

A short while later, I came up with another version of the box, which was divided into two parts. The base of the box was still attached to the harness using Velcro straps, while the second part was easily inserted into the first part, creating a secure connection between the two parts and allowing for easy attachment and removal of the box. This second part contained an Arduino and an LED strip, making the light much brighter.

Rapid Testing

17/9/2022

I created a 3D model of the box, which I then printed using a 3D printer. I equipped this box with a brightly glowing promotional item and attached it to the dog's harness using Velcro straps. The light may not have been too strong, but I knew that this was only the beginning of something bigger.

First Idea

15/8/2022

It was Geralt who inspired me to this great idea. I needed a combination of light localization and GNSS (GPS and Glonass) for him, but unfortunately, I couldn't find any device on the market that met my requirements. That's why I decided to create my own device.
