Treat Tossing Feature

Furbo
Furbo is also capable of shooting out multiple treats at a time at a distance of about a foot from the device although this device does not allow you to schedule an interactive treat-tossing time for your pets. One thing we noticed about this device during testing is that it creates loud noise which might startle your dogs while they are sleeping or your old, frail pupper which might have negative effects with regards to their health.
SKYMEE
Skymee makes a barking sound to attract your dog before shooting out the treats; this happens after you press the toss treat button in the app. This device launches about two to four treats at a time which we think is just the perfect amount of treats to be given in one go. We also never had a problem when testing the treat dispensing feature; we did not experience treats being jammed at all which is perfect, in our opinion. Skymee shoots out treats for up to 5 feet or more which can be a great entertainment for your pups.

Skymee

Furbo, on the other hand, does not come with this kind of set-up; it only allows you to store one-size treats into the device. Furbo does not offer a detachable container top so it would be very tricky when trying to clean the device.
Skymee comes with multiple stops or doors of different sizes depending on the size of the dog treats that you’re using for your pups. The recommended size of treats is from 4 mm to 17 mm. By default, there is already one attached inside the device but it is easily removable for when you want to switch to a bigger or smaller treat.

Sounds Alerts

Furbo

SKYMEE

Furbo also comes with sound alert notifications that come to your phones using their app, but a noticeable difference is that this device also does a good job at differentiating only between human animal sounds. Furbo also features automated alerts when it detects dog barkings that comes with the free plan. But the good thing about Furbo is that it comes with a Smart Dog Alerts feature which optimizes the use of artificial intelligence so it can learn gradually about your dog, and it can then send much more accurate notifications over time; this comes with their paid subscription.
Skymee emits a loud barking noise whenever the device dispenses treats and this might not be a good feature if for example your dog is a bit jittery or nervous as it might make your dogs feel more agitated over time.

Video Quality

Furbo
Furbo also shows a clear 160-degree wide angle display. This device also has a night vision feature which also automatically turns on when it gets dark at night which is pretty convenient for when you are working night shifts.
SKYMEE
Skymee has a full HD 1080P camera which is the norm nowadays for the newest types of cameras out there. This device already comes with infrared LED night vision which is perfect for night time viewing.

Audio Quality

Furbo

SKYMEE

Furbo also has microphones and speakers which lets you have conversations and interactions with your pets and vice versa. Upon testing, we also noticed that Furbo kind of releases mumbling sounds which is a bit difficult to understand. One thing to note when checking out this product.
Skymee has a two-way intercom so you can communicate and interact with your dogs even while you’re away. The app allows you to record your own voice or customize sound alerts so before the treat shoots out, the device will play that voice or audio recording that you saved so it can catch your puppy's attention before the treat shoots out from the device. One thing that we do not like about this product is that the built-in speaker quality is not as good as we expected it to be. Even with strong connection, the audio quality sounds quite harsh when using the microphone of the app.

Furbo on the other hand does not have the capability to be mounted on walls. Unlike Skymee, this device does not have tapes underneath; It instead only comes with 4 sticky padding materials underneath which makes it slide or be moved easier on surfaces.
The Skymee device is very easy to set up. Just plug in the USB cord to the micro USB port at the back of the device, download the free Skymee app from PlayStore or AppStore. There are three tapes underneath the device so you could stick it on a table or on the floor and you won’t have to worry about it being pushed over by your pup, although, it might not be as sturdy as you might think.

Our Verdict

Since what we are after on a dog camera is seeing what they are doing without you, especially when you are on a business meeting, it is important to also have a video record and play what happened.  Also, a wider view can get these events better so the winner for this comparison is the Furbo dog camera (check the current price here).
