Are you going out of town for a few days? Do you have a pet that you want to keep track of while you are gone? Then these pet cameras are just what you’ve been searching for.
Hook them up to your smartphone for a live feed of your pet. Guess what, there’s more. Some of these pet cameras also have laser toys and Treat dispensers to keep your pet engaged while you’re away. Too cool, isn’t it? So, here are the 8 best pet cameras for keeping track of your pets and engaging them in some fun activities.
Pawbo Wi-Fi Pet Camera
Pawbo Wi-Fi pet camera is one of those devices that you will instantly fall in love with. It is compact and well built. The great thing about it is that it can record HD videos of your pets and directly save it on the cloud. There is also a built-in laser toy to keep your pets engaged as well as a nifty Treat Dispenser. The size of the treat dispenser is slightly small, so you can fill it up with smaller treats only.
The name suggests its shape; the Petcube camera is is shaped like a cube. It is pretty neat and will blend in perfectly with the stuff at home. It has a microphone and speaker for two-way audio so that you can engage with your pets. The combination of wide angle lens and HD video recording is perfect for keeping an eye on your loved ones. Even though it doesn’t have a treat dispenser, it comes with a laser toy.
Motorola Pet Scout66
Coming from Motorola is the greatest advantage for this device. The brand name and the trust that the customers have regarding their products is immense. But compared to the other pet cameras on this list, the Motorola Pet Scout66 doesn’t have a treat dispenser nor a laser toy. It looks more like a really small webcam. Pet Scout66 also supports two-way communication but doesn’t have a screen. Sadly, your pet will only be able to hear you.
PetChatz HD Greet & Treat Videophone
The PetChatz HD Greet & Treat Videophone can be mounted on your wall and I think that is really handy. Other handy features include calming scents, sound and motion detection, and a treat dispenser. Be careful to add treats of the same size or you might run into clogging it. There is a tiny little display, which in my opinion is apt for pets. Like most other cameras, it supports two-way communication too.
Furbo Dog Camera
The Furbo Dog Camera is the bestselling surveillance camera on Amazon. Even though it doesn’t have a display of its own, there are other advantages like a wide angle camera with night vision, an intelligent sensor, a bamboo wood-cover as well as supporting two-way communication. Even though the picture might confuse you on size, it is really compact and you can control most its functions through your smartphone. It is extremely fun to toss treats with and watch your pets gobble them up!
Petzi Treat Cam
The Petzi Treat cam looks a lot like room fragrance diffuser but it is a pet camera, obviously. It has all the functions of a regular pet camera like taking snaps, tossing treats, watching your pet and speaking to them as well. Since it is small, it doesn’t house a screen and your pet won’t be able to see you. The brand was founded with Indiegogo and it raised over $100,000. So if you want a pet camera that has quite a bit of a fan following, then look no further.
Feed and Go Smart Pet Feeder
Feed and Go Smart Pet Feeder is a very futuristic looking pet camera & feeder. It consists of 6 cup-sized trays in which you can store smaller sized pet food. There are two speakers through which you can speak to your pets. The best thing about the Feed and Go Smart Pet Feeder is that the food tray is dishwasher proof and you can store dry and wet food. To top it all off, there is a webcam with which you can monitor your pet’s feeding habits.
Canary All-in-One Home Security Device
Just like the name suggests, the Canary All-in-One Home Security device is an all-around device that is a must have for complete surveillance. One slight disappointment about this one is that it doesn’t have a treat dispenser. But, the host of other features will definitely make you overlook the one slight flaw. There’s a full HD camera, motion activated recording, 90dB siren, the ability to monitor air quality, room temperature and much more.
