We are currently staying in a seasonal campground. Occasionally the electric will go out. Our concern is when we leave our dog in the RV for a few hours, how do we know if the electric goes out. Is there an App that will notify us or an App that can monitor the temperature?

I am not aware of that, it would have to be linked to your own trailer...

I know some of the newer RV's have computerized pads in them that can be controlled by a cell phone as well..

I know that on mine, I have the Global Connect app on my phone. As long as my RV is hooked to wifi, I can monitor and control all non motorized things via wifi from anywhere... YES- Ac-Heat-Lights-tanks water heater generator .. NOT slide outs,awning,leveling jacks..

Nest camera facing any device that will fail in a power outage. Internet required. You'll get notified if camera detects movement.

Not elegant, but works for my home.

We have MarCell.. I have no complaints at all. We spend a lot of time in the desert. The only thing you need is your cell phone for messages, phone calls and email alerts, plus the unit.

Is there internet available in your trailer when you leave? If not, Marcell has a good cellular solution. It has a back-up battery, so it can notify you if the power goes out and it doesn't depend on internet to work.

I use the RV Whisper system to monitor my RV Temperature and Shore Power Voltage so I get email and text alerts if it gets hot in the RV or if it loses Shore Power. I can check the status remotely (over the internet) to see current temperature and other data.

It also monitors my batteries, propane level and door open/close status. Lots of wireless sensors to choose from - i bought more sensors than I really need, but they are kind of fun to have.

I've been using la crosse technology for my home and bought WI-FI thermometer for my camper.
With WI-FI connection it will display temperatures on your android and you can set alerts.
I plug the the gateway into 1 of those WI-Fi extenders.
Technology is still temperamental, but it works.
