Perimeter Technologies Wire-Free Wi-Fi Dog Fence Review

The wireless WiFi dog fence gives you a sophisticated outlook and makes you stand out among your many other neighbors who are probably using the old wired system. Although it has many shortcomings, it works well over a small-sized yard since the obstacles might be far from the set borders.

Technology has proved to be of great importance across the borders. It is being applied in every scope of our lives to make things easier and better for us. It is the same technology aspect that brought the existence of wireless dog fencing.

Wireless dog fencing is a logical and popular option for pet owners who are not very comfortable with burying or installing underground wired fence. Setting up this system takes less of your time and saves you a lot of energy. At the same time, it is a conveniently portable unit.

Although the Perimeter Technologies WiFi system features adjustable correction levels and rechargeable collars, it is made to handle only two collars at a time. This might be a challenge for dog owners who have more than two dogs.

Wire-Free Wi-Fi Dog Fence The system has a unique two-way communication system that transmits information between the collar and the transmitter alerting you when your dog challenges or tries to close the boundary. This is an innovative and useful feature that is only available in this new model.

The upgraded wireless technology has an improved 2.5-acre range which is only reachable or attainable under optimal conditions where there are no obstacles hindering it. The system, however, seems to be less effective in transmitting information through metal roof or siding, multiple walls or dealing with any boundaries set in the transmission field.

The signal of this system drops out at random intervals and worse still, the boundary keeps fluctuating up to 20ft every now and then. The issue of delayed correction complicates this problem even further. The challenge of fluctuating boundary affects the promptness of the collar alerts in such a way, it comes a few seconds late and stops late as well. This makes it quite challenging when training your dog.

Collar Features

Rechargeable: The collar of the WiFi system comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Depending on the frequency of use, the charge is able to go for a week or more before needing a recharge. At the same time, this Wire-less system is packaged with two rechargeable batteries. One is used for the base station while the other one is meant for the collar.
Boundary Challenge Alert: This inventive feature is exceptional to WiFi technology. It allows the collar to operate as both a transmitter and a receiver. The two-way communication system between the collar and the base station immediately sends an alert to you when your dog challenges the boundary. This prompts you to head outside immediately to investigate whether the dog has breached the rules.
Waterproof: The collar is fairly durable and fully waterproof.
Adjustable Correction Levels: The WiFi collar comes with 8 individually modifiable correction levels. at the same time, it has a beep-only training mode.
Maximum of 2 Collars: The system is able to handle two collars at a time at most.

Transmitter Features

2.5 acre Range:
The WiFi system comfortably features a 2.5 acre signal range, which is a notable improvement over the ordinary PetSafe Wireless system. However, the signal is badly affected by any obstacles be it multiple walls, trees, and most particularly metal roofing or siding. All these obstacles significantly affect the effectiveness of the transmitter. It creates random signal drop areas, creates dead zones as well as significantly decreasing the coverage range. In some cases, there might be the notable minute-to-minute disparity in boundary lines as well as outstanding delays in correction response time.
Backup Battery:
The WiFi system is packaged with two lithium-ion batteries that are rechargeable. One is intended to stand in as a backup power source in case there is power failure while the second one is to be used on the collar.
SUMMARY: Although The Perimeter Technologies WiFi wire-less Fence offers a number of really great advances it falls short in many significant ways. Rechargeable collars, increased range of 2.5 acres, two-way communication between transmitter and the collar, are some of the advantages of the WiFi Fence. On the other hand, inconsistent and vague boundaries, transmission problems, and slow response time are some of the challenges of using this system.
Limited Lifetime Warranty: Like most other systems, the WiFi is also covered by a narrow lifetime warranty.
