Dog parents are always looking for the coolest new gadgets on the market, anything for our pets right! We look for things that we can purchase to make sure our dog live their best life, plus help us take the best care of them. We scour the internet to see what products we might be missing out on. Today I found this amazing product. It’s this very cool dog camera called Furbo Dog Camera.
This camera is actually a real fun gadget to have for you and your dog to play with. On top of the fun part, it is an amazing tool that can be used to help us monitor our dogs when we are away from our house.
The Furbo starts with the very sleek shape, and sharp look. It is white and has a bamboo top or cover that sits on the top of the camera.
On the front of the camera there are a few different buttons, and slots. Towards the top of the camera is where the camera lens is located, then down from that is the mic/speaker.
The big blue button is the barking sensor, for picking up the sound when your dog barks. Closer to the bottom you will see a little round slot with a kind of door that opens and closes. This is the treat tosser! Yup, that’s what I said treat tosser. Sounds funny, but that’s what it’s called. A very unique and cool feature.
Equipped with an electrical cord that requires the camera be plugged into any outlet in order. The camera needs to be plugged into for it to work.
Features of the camera
This camera has many built-in features. Some of the main functions of this camera are the super HD picture quality and high tech options. Yes it is a bit techy, but yet very easy to use.
The camera lens on the top moves 160 degrees, and is full 1080p HD with Infrared Night Vision. Using night vision allows you to see your dog even in the dark. What a very cool add-on.
Through the speaker you can 2-way talk to your pet from where ever you are by simply downloading and accessing the app on your smartphone or tablet. This gives you the piece of mind, knowing that even though you aren’t at home, your dog can hear your voice, which helps them feel less alone.
The barking sensor on the front of the camera picks up, the second that your dog barks. Then the camera sends a push notification or alert to your smartphone alerting you. You then open the app on your phone to view the video and to see what is going on in view of the camera. This alert will also help you really know how much your dog barks when you aren’t home.
The treat tosser slot on the front is where the treat gets dispensed from. All you have to do is fill the treat slot up by lifting up the lid and filling the area with treats. Just make sure the treats you chose are small enough to fit through the slot. Otherwise, it won’t be able to push the treat out.
You can control and activate this feature right from the app. There is a button that appears on screen just below the camera picture on the app. By hitting this button it sends a signal back to the camera telling it to toss out a treat.
How to install and use
Sometimes with these type of tech products and gadgets can be hard to use unless you are some kind of super techy person. So for that reason you don’t buy these products. But that is not the case with the Furbo Camera.
The Furbo Dog Camera Treat Tosser installs in 3 easy steps:
- Take the camera out of the packaging and plug into a regular power outlet.
- Then download the free app to your smartphone or tablet.
- Once the camera is on, you need to connect it to your home WIFI system.
- 90 day free trial of Cloud recording
Once you have the app downloaded on your smartphone, you can open it up and see the picture on screen.
The quality is FULL HD with 4X zoom.
It looks pretty darn amazing, I have to say.
On the screen in the two corners you will see different icons. On the right side you will see a microphone icon that you can turn on and off.
In the left corner you will see two icons, the top one is video and the second is the camera button used to take pictures.
Reasons to buy this camera
Sometimes our dogs get into things while we are away at work. we come home and wonder, how the heck did that happen! With this camera all you have to do is go to the cloud where the recording is being stored and review the video and see for yourself what actually happened.
For some people, their dogs suffer from separation anxiety. With the 2-way talking feature this camera offers help for your dog if they suffer from this issue. This gives us the ability to see if our dog is safe.
In some cases, this camera can literally save the life of your pet or your home. You can use the camera to detect any trouble your dog maybe getting into while you are away.
Maybe your dog has gotten into something toxic, or dangerous. The second they bark. you get notified right away with the barking alert function.
Even the worst case scenario, what if your home was to catch fire, the dog of course would start to bark right away. You could then rush home or just call 911 from where ever you are at that moment.
Every pet owner should take a look at this camera!
I realize that this camera may seem a little pricey, but when you weigh the benefits of what you get in return, it really isn’t.
- Monitor your dog from work
- Treat Tosser function
- Distract your dog
- Help with separation anxiety
- Takes pictures
- Kind of expensive
- Only 1 camera per network
- Need proper treat size for door
- Have to use an App
Now that I have gone through all the things this pet camera offers, it is really hard to pass up on. In my opinion, you can’t put a price on the life and safety of your pet.
You can easily set this camera on a side table at a good level to catch where your dog usually is when you are gone.
Unfortunately, we all have to go to work every day and that leaves our dogs alone for extended periods of time.
This is a great one-time purchase that will allow you to leave your home feeling better about what is really going on the second you leave and step out the door.
Whether your dog is young or old, purchasing this camera will be a decision that will really help you keep a watchful eye on our fur babies. .
HAPPY DOGGY SPYING!
