NIGHTWATC is the World's first smart halter™ (optional safety collar) designed to alert you via text, phone call, and email at the early signs of danger/distress in your horse, such as colic, being cast, and foaling. This revolutionary patent-protected IoT-enabled device monitors real-time data on your horse’s vital signs and behaviors, works across 3G/cellular and WiFi networks, offers GPS tracking, and leverages artificial intelligence/machine learning to adapt to your horse over time for maximum precision and benefit. 

Horse owners, caretakers, and veterinarians alike can gain access to real-time insight and historical information, including your horse's EDI® (Equine Distress Index®) score, is available on-demand 24/7 from any smartphone, tablet, or computer.


The light weight all-natural leather crown of each NIGHTWATC breakaway halter and safety collar is non-invasively embedded with a flexible, water- and dust-resistant enclosure that houses ~10.4 ounces of electronics, making it safe and comfortable for long-term use on your horse in a variety of conditions overnight, in transit, and while away.


NIGHTWATCH® complies with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules, and further ensures compliance with Industry Canada (IC) license-exempt RSS standards, PTCRB/CTIA certification standards, and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) 60950 product safety standards.
