PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT on NEW SCARAB ULTRA

What is in a Dog Light, well in Scarab products amid all the other technology, there is a micro processor that has enough memory to perform all the tasks required by the user. Battery charging management, power management, the ability to adjust the intensity of the light and allow you to select a colour and light mode, and operate the light efficiently so you get a maximum run time, quite a lot you would agree!

For this year’s new product addition, we have been flat out looking at what we could do and our engineers did not disappoint, a software programme that “morphs” the RGB LED inside the ULTRA. This is a blend of all the 3 colour LED to produce a cascade of colour choice by simply pressing and releasing the 2 buttons once you have found a shade you like. We describe it as “Morph selection”.

The ULTRA has all the light modes you would expect with a premium dog light and maintains our core philosophy of rechargeable technology to save the planet.

Take a tour of our website and see how our products look for this season.

Collar Buddy for your Dogs Harness

We see in the news today that many people are breaking the law by not abiding by the Control of Dogs Act when they take their dog out in a harness and not having a metal tag with the owner details on it. Our Collar Buddy provides the easy solution as you see in the image. A “Dog Proof” bespoke label with a proven and comfortable soft material that wraps and locks around your harness webbing, giving your dog label a secure  fit with all the legal data you require regarding. Metal tags are heavy and can bang into the dogs chest, imagine having that on your neck all the time! Collar Buddy weighs only 4.7g, and is designed for all dog sizes, it is fixed by wrapping securely around 20mm or 25mm webbing collars and harnesses. The label technology is designed to withstand all the rigours of daily dog life, scratch proof, waterproof, UV proof and is the perfect solution for managing your dogs security when outside. Go to our “order on line” option and click Luna wearing her personalised label to place your order and send us your details for the label. A proof will be emailed to you for your approval and then your bespoke Collar Buddy will be created and posted to you. Please remember to check the width of your webbing before selecting the option. If you wish to know more please contact us by email and we will be happy to answer your questions regarding Collar Buddy: sales@scarabbeacon.com

 

The Essential Winter Dog Accessory

Part of your dog’s walking kit more vital than a favourite ball, coat or throwing toy is a dog safety light, you would curse if a cyclist went by without any lights on and your dog is no different. However, a dog light must meet certain criteria for it to keep you and your dog safe and with many factors affecting the lights performance when in use. Unless the light you buy meets these factors, you may as well risk the dark and potential hazards we experience when outside in low light conditions without one. With increased traffic on our roads and less people using public transport, walking your dog can be quite stressful and cause you to limit how much time you spend exercising your best friend, let’s make it more pleasurable and safer, here’s how.

You can buy cheaper, less powerful lights and they will switch on and off, but the first thing you should check is the viewing angle, will they get your dog seen from all sides, can you adjust the intensity to suit your journey, and do they reflect off hedges and grass verges giving additional visibility? Do they work with fur or are they obscured, limiting the road user’s ability to see them? How secure are they when on the dog, do they cause a potential snagging hazard, and do they offer long operating times? Do they work in wet conditions, and did you know that flashing lights are seen far quicker than constant lights, a point that could be the difference between injury or not?

Rechargeable products are very popular nowadays, mobile phones have really set the bar and changed people’s attitudes, it used to be that rechargeable products were far dearer than battery operated goods but now as the technology widens and more and more goods are rechargeable, the prices are not so different, which is extremely good for the planet and your pocket. Over the length of winter you can be forgiven for thinking replacement dog light batteries are helping save the world as they are so small, you can spend little on the product but LOTS on replacing the batteries, thus making a rechargeable product the right choice and especially if it offers a long run time, a full suite of accessories, a choice of light settings and LED colours and satisfies all the above criteria making the buying decision so much easier.

Scarab Dog Lights have been carefully developed by outdoor people who know the rigours of portable lighting kit along with the added challenge of it being strapped to your dog haring around in all types of conditions.

Don’t let the dark restrict your dog’s activity plans, they and you need to be outside and with the right gear attached you can have peace of mind that you and your dog are visible and secure on and off the lead.

New Products Coming from Scarab

Over the past few months we have been flat out developing product additions for your dog and now your push bike.

For some time now our customers have been telling us to adapt Scarab for bikes as it gives all-round visibility, so thanks to you we now hope to keep cyclists safe with our technology and here it is:

SideSafe by Scarab is a removeable, waterproof, rechargeable accessory bike light designed to keep you safe. The harmonisation of power LED and optical polymer lens produces all-round visibility, so you are clearly seen not just from the rear or front but both sides too. Our wide-angle lens gives other road users plenty of warning of your presence. SideSafe is waterproof (IP67) and weighs just 30g and can be seen from up to 3km depending on power and colour setting. You can change the colour for front or rear use, (RED or White) and adjust the intensity to suit your journey. On High flash setting SideSafe will run for 10 hours and 140 hours on low. There are 5 light modes: 1 Adjustable intensity flash, 2 Pre-set Long flash, 3 Pre-set Intensity Dot-Dot, 4 Pre-set Intensity Dot Dash, 5 Pre-set intensity Constant. SideSafe is assembled and tested in the UK

Our new doggy information products that will be coming your way are designed around collar applications and creating the most comfortable “On Dog Data” that meet the Control of Dogs Act requirements.

Collar Buddy is a lightweight and comfortable label alternative to metal ID tags and a very ergonomic addition to your dog’s apparel, enhancing their collar or lead with comfort and ease of application whilst keeping your dog safe should they be found. No sewing or stitching is required, and you can fit it to your existing collar. Collar Buddy is clear and easy to read, it is secure and robust, designed to endure the rigours of everyday dog activity and uses the latest proven label application technologies. Collar Buddy ensures your dog is identifiable with your surname, postcode and street number/house name, phone number, chip number (optional) and any message regarding medical requirements. Or you can just have a message of your choice tailored to fit your width of collar/harness. You can also have one of our humorous versions from a dropdown list.

Scarab ULTRA Our new Dog Light with over 100 colours, it uses our powerful microprocessor to offer you a choice of LED colour from a “morphing selection” feature. You simply click twice and hold the power button and then press and hold the colour select button to watch the lens travel through the spectrum, when you find a shade you like, just release both buttons. The ULTRA comes equipped with all the usual Scarab accessories and will be going on sale soon, direct from our web shop.

Scarab halt direct web sales to EU/NI Customers due to new tax laws as a result of Brexit

We are very sad to report that we have had no choice but to stop sales of our products directly to non-vat registered people living outside of the UK, this means private individuals, this includes people living in Northern Ireland, although historically part of the UK, in ecommerce terms they are now not.

THIS DOES NOT AFFECT VAT REGISTERED BUSINESS CUSTOMERS

This new tax law as of July 1st, is the EU’s response to our leaving the EU and understandably, we can’t have our cake and eat it.

The decision to leave the EU single market now means if we wish to sell directly to people living in EU countries, (known as distance selling) we must register our company for VAT in EACH member country or join the IOSS scheme. The administration and management costs make this totally non-viable as you can imagine.

Where we have EU country distributors, these remain in place so you will still see Scarab Dog Lights in shops and on-line with our approved re-sellers, but you will not be able to purchase direct from our web site if you live in the EU or Northern Ireland.

If you are in the EU or Northern Ireland and wish to purchase our products, we can direct you to our EU re-sellers, just send us an email and we will more than happy to assist you.
