Written by Mark Braeden

The newest gadget craze to make your life easier as a dog owner: the Smart Crate manufactured by Johnny Jones from Illinois and considered as the revolutionary and most convenient dog crate to be out in the market. You chances of losing dog will be down to 0 so you don’t need a dog GPS collar anymore.

With just one touch of your smartphone through a mobile app, you may personify your dream automatic car garage to your dog’s house. It automatically slides open the SmartCrate door of your dog. It has a mounted 5” 800×480 LCD touchscreen device that can be tilted in an upward motion and conveniently located on top of the crate for easy accessibility for dog owners to act as a remote too. The design is sleek with LED lights that changes color such as white, blue, red, green or even pink, according to your (and your dog’s) preferences inside to give your best friend that grandiose interior of his or her living space, which can be controlled via the mobile app of the touchscreen device too. It is powered by rechargeable 12V battery with 12V plug adapter.

Do you want to do voice command? This crate is also compatible with voice assistance services such as Google Home and Alexa for a totally hands-free experience of controlling the opening and closing the SmartCrate door and its other functions. This can start functioning by being asked of your identification purchase number and rest assured that your dog is safe.

Johnny Jones make sure to stick to its environmental commitment by using 95% wood for the SmartCrate to make sure it is recyclable. It certainly talks about not just health safety issues for you and your dogs with the use of corrosive materials for their cages and back and knee issue for you, but aesthetically pleasing too! With vinyl waterproof interior floor, SmartCrate assures your dog to pee on it without worrying it to be damaged. It blends with any home décor too!
