Intelligizer Fence Monitor by Zareba®
Zareba® brings new technology to your electric fence with the Intelligizer Fence Monitor, a patented charger add-on used to remotely monitor and control your electric fence. With the Intelligizer Fence Monitor, your cell phone becomes your newest farm tool as you turn your fence on and off, check voltage, and receive alerts on the status of your electric fence.
Intelligizer Fence Monitor Unboxing and Installation
Use Text Messages To Control Your Fence Use your Fence Monitor to control your fence from anywhere - whether you're standing in the middle of your pasture, at the feed store, or lying in bed. With your cell phone, you use text messaging to control your fence energizer, including:
Get Alerts From Your Fence When there's trouble on your fence line, the Intelligizer® Fence Monitor jumps into action by sending you text messages to detail the problems:
Fence Monitor Readouts While you can remotely check fence voltage level any time you want, the Intelligizer Fence Monitor has smart LED lights to check fence and network status when you’re close to the Fence Monitor. With the fence status indicator lights, you can instantly see if the unit is off, check voltage levels and know when there’s a rapid voltage drop while in safety mode. The network signal indicator lights show signal strength, when a message is delivered and whether a network is available.
How It Works The Intelligizer Fence Monitor is for exclusive use with AC (plug-in) fence chargers. Using SMS and cellular technology, this device gives you remote access to your electric fence energizer. Once you physically install your Fence Monitor next to your powered-off charger, you can attach sensor cables to the ground and fence wire terminals. Next, plug your charger into the Fence Monitor in a regular outlet. From there, register your device and connect to the cell service by visiting www.intelligizeraccount.com and begin sending commands to the device. Once fully connected to the network, your Fence Monitor makes working with your fence easy and convenient - you can power your charger on and monitor your fence status remotely.
Cell Phone & Cell Service Requirements To operate the Intelligizer Fence Monitor, you will need a cell phone with SMS (Texting) capability. The Intelligizer also requires a $29.99 annual cellular monitoring service plan, which can be set up at www.IntelligizerAccount.com. For a limited time, the first year (or about 240 messages) is FREE OF CHARGE when using the valid coupon code listed on the Fence Monitor package. This monitoring service allows the Intelligizer to send and receive text messages and commands. Once activated on a primary phone, you can then add other cell numbers to give control options to additional users.

This is a decent product. It does what it says it will do. It probably will work a lot better for a smaller energizer only powering a few miles of fence. Any short on a small energizer will cause the voltage at energizer to fall enough to trigger an alert from the alarm. With a large energizer, 36 Joule output, on a large fencing system, 5+ miles of multi-wire fence, it will pick up a voltage drop near the energizer, say a few hundred yards, fine. The problem arises on a large system with multiple branches. I can fault the fence out say halfway down the fence, and the energizer will continue to put out the same amount of voltage at the beginning of the fence. Meanwhile, I may have a mile of fence that has no voltage. Again, the product is doing what it says it will do, but in my opinion, voltage is only part of the equation. Amperage draw is a more important metric in measuring how strong the electric fencing system is. The engineers should have included an amperage draw readout for the alarm as well. For example, on my larger fences, I may have an amperage draw of 25 at the beginning of the fence with a voltage of 8,500 V. That is when there are no faults and the fence is fine. I can fault the fence out about halfway down the fence and my voltage may drop to 8,300 V at the beginning of the fence, but my amperage draw will increase to 50. This increase in the amperage draw indicates that there is a fault somewhere on the fence even though the voltage is still fine. So, if the alarm should have two alert criteria. The first one should be for a voltage drop like it is currently set up. The second one should be for the amperage draw. Then this would be a 5 star product. As it is, it only tells half the story of what is happening on the fence, so it only gets half the stars in my review. It does work well to tell me if I have a blown fuse, so I will keep on using it. In fact, I ordered three of them, so these alarms do serve a purpose.

Works great so far. On a day that started out sunny then turned to rain I kept getting alerts as the rain got heavier where the weed pressure with added moisture kept lowering the output. Moved the poly wire a bit to where the cattle had grazed already with no weeds and the voltage went back up. Even with horrible cell coverage here it has still worked every time via text message. My only complaint would be that if you set multiple people up to be able to turn the fence off and on then they also get all the alerts as well. My wife (who may need to turn the fence off if I am away) will be at her job while I’m moving cows and it texts her as well that the fence is being turned off and on with no way to change that setting.
I have had this for about a year now. I love being able to turn off the fence from my phone when I need to get through if I am on the far side of the field. We also just had an incidident at 8:40 pm at night and it’s been raining all day. Got a message that we had a rapid drop in voltage. Ran out to see a huge tree branch on the fence. Was able to get it clear within 20 minutes and now have no worries. We were lucky to be home but if we were not we could have had a neighbor go check it out.
