The SpotOn Virtual Smart Fence™ app works with the SpotOn collar, a dog containment system using Global Navigation Satellite Systems to keep you dog safe at home or on the go. The SpotOn Virtual Fence System allows users to set up virtual smart fences of any shape or size with no need for buried wires or bases stations. Store up to 10 unique virtual smart fences in the collar or generate a circular perimeter instantly. With the SpotOn VSF App, you will receive notifications if your dog leaves or reenters containment and with high-accuracy tracking, you can locate him to within 10 feet of his position (with updates every 6 seconds). The app also allows for custom communication to the collar to monitor key parameters.
The SpotOn Virtual Smart Fence app is easy to use:
- Create a new account or login with your Facebook ID
- Register your SpotOn collar
- Manage account settings: e-mail addresses, contact phone number, passwords

Please fix the app and it will be a great solution
The collar and function definitely had a lot of thought and experience out into it. The accuracy is good and allows for the use case of several maps for location and function as I wanted. The app is not useable due to constant crashing. I receive containment notices, but due to app crashing the tracking and map visualization does not add the value it could. Once the app is stable, this overall solution will be one of the best options for people with large areas, travel frequently or have others watch their dogs at different locations.
Containment is good, nothing else is.
This review is specifically about the app. Containment is good, set up a map and it seems to be working well. Warnings seem to be going off just inside the fence line as I’d hoped.
As far as the app goes, rarely does it even connect through Bluetooth, so it’s a process to even set the static correction level. Despite having strong cell service on both the collar and phone, tracking has not worked a single time, always tells me that the collar is disconnected. Have had zero luck uploading maps to my phone, even after following all the directions on the app. Received a message to update the collar to fix an important power on issue, connected it to the computer as instructed, but nothing happens as far as I can tell. Nothing on the computer tells me if anything is happening prior to hitting reboot on the collar, so I have zero indication as to whether the update happened or not.
The bottom line is that the containment seems to work well, but the tracking, app, and other system interactions seem to be severely lacking. I’m a bit disappointed considering the cost, but it’s still cheaper and quicker than dog proofing 40 acres of fence.
Containment NOT Good
App is horrific considering this collar retails for $1,500. It hasn’t done anything to contain my dog yet despite following every instruction to the letter, and this app adds stress because it doesn’t connect to the collar, crashed every time, and fails to upload the maps from the collar (probably because it can’t connect). It’s a bad sign when, within the app itself, all of the FAQs revolve around the app crashing, not working correctly, etc. if the collar cost $200, then ok, but this is 100% unacceptable for something that costs over $1,000. The collar does successfully beep when crossing the threshold you set, so it established the perimeter successfully. That tells me the idea is truly amazing (setting up a fence anywhere), but the execution is terrible, adding more stress than reducing it, which is the entire point of the collar. If SpotOn figures out this app and makes everything more user friendly, this will be an amazing device
