Now we are launching Videquus 2.0!
In late summer 2022, we asked our users what they like about the app and what could be improved. The responses resulted in months of development and now we've finished the new app! In the new app, you'll find live coverage from the camera and "the day in review" as usual - but also a lot of news!Read More
- Ability to watch the "replay of the day" at real speed
- Add more horses and save their health profiles!
- Improved calendar function with reminders and preset intervals for e.g. courtiers and vaccinations.
- New improved statistics for your horse and comparison with the average of our users
- New alarms! We are now launching a beta version of the colic alarm* and a "horse rolling" alarm that will alert you if your horse has been lying down for more than 60 minutes.
Colic, every horse owner’s nightmare
Colic is one of the most common and feared diseases in horses. It is an unpleasant and painful condition that affects the horse's gastrointestinal tract. Colic is a serious problem as it can lead to permanent damage to the horse's internal organs, or even death, if not treated in time. Colic is caused by an imbalance in the horse's gastrointestinal tract, which can occur due to many different factors, including feed changes, too little exercise or water, stress or other illnesses. Symptoms of colic usually include agitation, pain, irregular bowel movements, nausea and difficulty eating or drinking. We recognise colic by the horse lying down and/or rolling over repeatedly, standing with its head low to the ground, kicking its stomach with its hind legs or looking at its stomach. It is important to recognise the symptoms of colic in horses as soon as possible and to contact a veterinarian for advice and treatment. Treatment may include medication and, in the worst case, surgery by abdominal opening. To prevent colic in horses, it is important to have good routines for feeding, exercise and water, and to avoid stressful situations as much as possible. Close monitoring of the horse's behaviour and activity can also help to detect and prevent colic. Overall, colic is a serious disease in horses that should be taken very seriously. By paying attention to the symptoms, having good routines for their horse and seeking advice from a veterinarian in time, horse owners can help prevent and treat colic in their horses. Videquus will soon launch its very first colic alarm!Read More

She comes most recently from the real estate industry where she worked as a marketing manager and has many years of experience in key strategic positions in business development, brand building and leadership.

For me, it clicked immediately when I came into contact with the brand and the goal next will be for more people around the world to feel the same. I am convinced that there is demand in the market and that we have the right conditions for continued rapid expansion, not least with the excellent conditions that the previous CEO and the Board have given us," says Emelie about her new position." says Emelie about her new position.

Videquus 2.0 is released!
29 January 2020 Tjoho! We have been waiting for this day! As excited as we are to show you what we've been up to over the last few months. What is not visible is that AIn is a bit smarter. It gets easier and easier to distinguish the horse from the background and see what the horse does and not just that it does something. This will allow us to release new features in the app on an ongoing basis throughout the spring. How fun?! What is clearly visible is the new design of the app and a new way of counting activity. Instead of a number indicating the level of activity, we have a percentage. Where AIn learns that the horse's normal behaviour is 100%. If the horse is more active, the percentage rises to over 100 and if the horse is much less active than usual, it drops to a percentage below 100. The numbers also change colour from green = normal, to yellow = abnormal, to red = very abnormal. These colours can be selected in the call view to get a really good overview of whether your horse is behaving normally or not. The pipe graph is still there, but scrollable and shows better day and night with the help of the background colours. The orange play symbols indicate that an event clip has been saved there. The replay of the day can be found on the home page, easier to find! A new value, or two really, that counts is how long the horse spends in the box and how much of that time the horse has rested. Rest includes both lying and standing rest. Thus, it also counts when the horse "stalls". These values can be displayed per week by clicking on the week number in the upper left corner. The small green bar shows an average of the horse's stall and resting time calculated on all the time since the videquus was installed. The orange bars show an average for all users of video quus, cool huh?! The event log is new, it shows the video clips saved with increased activity and a symbol shows when the horse went into the box, and out of the box with the time. If you have more than one horse, you can easily switch by clicking on the horse name on the right, top corner, a menu with all horses will appear. Of course, you can still watch live under the live icon and make settings for your camera under the profile icon. The question mark takes you to a brand new and expanded FAQ section. We hope that users will be as satisfied as we are and remember, whether you are a customer or thinking of becoming one you can always reach us easily by phone or email. We love talking horses with you. // Ylva Link press release: https://www.mynewsdesk.com/se/horsetechofsweden/pressreleases/videquus-nylanserar-oekad-intelligent-haesttrygghet-med-smart-kamera-2964862 Video of the new app: https://vimeo.com/389513253 https://vimeo.com/389668479Read More
Welcome 2022 & Karolina!
New year and new team members! Now Videquus has gained even more SEK, energy and specialist horse-tech knowledge. Since November, Karolina Malmlöv has been working with sales and business development. In addition to her (very) wealth of experience and positive energy, she is also a passionate horse person and pony mum. - I'm so excited. I feel like a galloping horse that before the start, unleash me and we'll run! says Karolina. Karolina Malmlöv has long been a familiar name to us at Videquus as she is behind the innovation company Sellamigo, which also focuses on safety and security for horse owners. Karolina's idea for a saddle register attracted a lot of attention, and she is an established name in horse-tech. It was a perfect match when an opportunity opened up in our team at the same time as Karolina contacted Videquus CEO Linus Jernbom. - Everything felt just right at Videquus. Here I can work on what I am passionate about and what I do best: developing the business and creating business - and at the same time working with horse-tech. In addition, I have a whole team to work with, which is something I've missed in the past," says Karolina. Karolina grew up in the stables, she has several horses herself and she has run an innovation company in horse-tech, but it was as a trained saddle fitter that she started her professional career in the horse world. No two days were the same, a way of working that Karolina thrived on, which also suits us well at Videquus. - I am very happy, have a lot of energy and very driven. I don't like it when things stand still. I'm like an engine - if you want something to happen, put me on it. You've already got your finger on the pulse of our customers and are making lots of new contacts. But if someone were to contact you - who would you most like to hear from? - Oh, it's horse people who are innovative and hungry for new ideas. We'd have a lot to talk about, so feel free to get in touch with me.Read More
New addition to the FoalGuard!
Let us introduce you to the FoalGuardnew friend, the recumbent! We are so proud to present an optional feature on the alarm, which will make you even more secure before foaling. We have developed a lying alarm that sounds a new alarm as soon as the mare lies down, if a normal falling alarm has previously sounded. A further assurance that the foaling is really underway. This bed alarm is also triggered when the normal alarm paused for some time after it has just been triggered. With Videquus you get a camera, a fall alarm based on the mare's behaviour and a lying alarm in one product! At Videquus, we want to cover everything that will make you feel calmer and more confident about foaling. You also choose the time yourself, if you want to know immediately the mare goes to bed, enter 1 minute in the settings. If you want to take it easy until the mare has been lying down for 15 minutes, give it 15 minutes. The recliner is now available under your settings to activate whenever you want. This alarm can be selected to notify you via a call or a text message. Until you activate and set a time, the harness is off.Read More
New year and news in the HorseGuard!
Now the HorseGuard gets even better. You can now add an option to the alarm. Everyone with a Horse Guard now has the option to set their own alarm when their horse lies down. A good complement to the usual alarm that reads the horse's behaviour all the time. Use it to keep an extra watch over a horse with colic or to be warned if the horse has been lying down for much longer than usual. If you set the alarm to go off after 1 minute, you will know if the horse lies down immediately. Or if you'd rather keep an eye on whether your horse is lying down too long, you can set any time in minutes. The new feature is now available in your settings to activate at any time. This alarm can be selected to notify you via a call or a text message. Until you activate and set a time, the harness is off.Read More
Last foaling seasonwas a success. But thanks to all the great foals and their great feedback, we have news to release this year. You can now choose to receive a fall alert from day 2. An alarm based not only on the mare's individual behaviour, but on common pre-foaling behaviours. Thanks to all the data we've collected, we've been able to teach the camera to recognise behaviours that are generally common before foaling. If you're expecting a foal and don't want your mare in the box more than 10 days before it's time, or want to reuse the camera for several mares foaling close together in time, this is a good solution. Since the camera does not have time to get to know the mare in question, there is a risk of slightly more false alarms. But the beauty is that the more days the mare spends in the box without foaling, the logic of the camera is gradually replaced by reading the mare's own behaviour. If the mare still spends 10 days in the stall without foaling, then the camera has completely replaced the alarm logic with the mare's individual behaviour even if the shorter learning time is activated. This setting is now available in the settings tab and can also be selected directly when the camera is restarted after a fade to another.Read More
Strömsholm Riding School is increasing the number of Videquus cameras at the facility.
We can happily and proudly present Strömsholm as satisfied and happy customers! They have been using a Videquus camera for some time to see if it can simplify the daily stable work when a horse is sick or needs extra supervision for other reasons. They are happy with the system and find it easy to use, so now they decided to increase the number of cameras so that every stall on the farm has a camera.Read More
"It's very easy to use Videquus, that's the main reason why we decided to increase the number of cameras"Says Jonas Johnson, Head of Operations at Strömsholm. //Linus
