We're looking for an environmental monitor capable of sending SMS alerts, and it looks like these are the two that fit our requirements:

- AT&T or Verizon Cellular (not Wifi/ hotspot dependent)
- Operates on shore power with internal battery backup

The RVPetSafety device seems to have a nicer app, GPS tracking which is nice if the rig is ever stolen, and is a little less expensive with the current promotions.

The Marcell device allows you to notify on shore power loss, which is a nice feature. And cost isn't really a big concern.

Does anyone have experience with these devices, and which would you go with?

We use RV Pet Safety and it has worked very well for us.
It does notify of a loss of AC power. It then monitors battery status. We were out West in 100+ degree weather and it kept us informed of the temperature inside the trailer. Easy to use, reliable, and reasonably priced.

Also RVPetSafety has the best customer service that I’ve ever seen. Easily accessible from their app and they are very responsive.

Pet Safety looks good, too. So far I'm very happy with Marcell. It notifies you by email, messages and with a phone call. Our phones goes berserk with alerts, LOL. We also use the Marcell in our home when we're not using the motorhome.

Another very satisfied customer of RV PetSafety. Their new app works great and now on the Verizon network and new pricing, it's a very good product in our opinion.

Thanks, everyone - I had been pondering a temp monitor system and just ordered the RV Pet Safety system. We'll be sightseeing in the SW US this fall; and should have more peace-of-mind about leaving the dogs in the van for a while (no 110v A/C, but the fantastic fan keeps the well-insulated van at ambient temp - and if it's 100+ degrees, *I* am not going to be doing anything other than driving, anyway....LOL!)
