As much as we love our fur babies, there’s no doubt they can cause a ruckus while we’re away – and that’s doubly true if you’ve inadvertently raised a pandemic pet (raise your hand). Luckily for other helicopter pet parents, the Petcube Camera is an easy, Wi-Fi-enabled way to monitor your little lovelies while you’re away…you know, living life. I stumbled upon it while browsing Amazon’s “Pet Supplies” section and read comment after comment that it was absolutely essential for parents wanting to keep an eye on their fur babies.
Worried about your pup tearing up your favorite pillows? Or maybe you are trying to train your pets to ultimately stay out of your closet? No problem. The Petcube helps you connect in real time and (hopefully) stop a household mess from breaking out. That’s right, no more curious puppies rummaging through your plants or piles of clothes – and we’ve got even better news to share. The camera is on sale with 20% off (!) on both days of Amazon Prime Day. Yes, you read that right.
So how does it work? It’s simple. To get started, setup only takes a minute of your time by connecting it to your Wi-Fi network. Once everything is set up, you’ll want to download the official Petcube app for your iPhone or Android to start the fun. with. The app is where you can start monitoring your dog or cat and get alerts with motion and sound detection features. My favorite part, though, is the two-way audio so I can alert my dog when he’s not doing anything good, or if I just want to shout a quick Hello! during my absence.
Where you place the camera at home is obviously up to you, but PetCube makes it very easy to zoom in and out to get a better view when needed (you also get a wide-angle view, so you can pretty much see everything) . And, I can’t lie, the dog camera is really good at capturing some of your pet’s sweetest moments that you can save for later. With Petcube Care, an added subscription benefit, you can replay up to 90 days of camera activity and video recordings. (No judgment if you literally watch all the pictures in your spare time.)
But what I love most is that it’s so much more than just a security camera. It can really help keep your pets safe. You can consult a vet directly through the Petcube app’s vet chat feature. From there, they can see your pet camera view in case they get sick or injured and you need expert advice.
If you’re still not entirely convinced, just read what other pet owners have to say about it. Review Tierra R. “work[s] very long nights” and doesn’t turn off until the next morning, so the camera helps her play night watch. Kristen D. thinks the best selling point is “the fact that you can adjust the angle by turning the box… living room view and a kitchen view of my pets, instead of having to choose (and without breaking the bank).
