Who is the dog gadget for? For dog owners who want to discover your pet’s secret life when you are not at home and keep in touch

Have you ever wished to know what your dog got up to when you’re not around? Have you ever wished to play and talk with your dog even if you’re away? Have you ever wished to get rid of your worries about your pet’s well-being when they’re alone at home? With the impressive Petcube Play Pet Camera I bought; fortunately, I can. Let me provide the review.

Petcube Play Pet Camera Features

You don’t always have to hire a dog sitter or call a friend to check on your dog. I discovered a pet camera that helped me to eliminate my worries. It gave me peace of mind ever since. Through the Petcube Play Wi-Fi Pet Camera, I can monitor my dog all the time and even interact with him! Here are some of its best features:

Uncomplicated Set-Up

Compare to Furbo Dog Camera, I had no trouble in setting the Petcube Play Pet Camera up and connecting it to the app. The set comes with a user manual, so I had the camera working in a matter of minutes. However, to keep the app working at all times, you need a Wi-Fi connection. No worries, as long as your phone has a Wi-Fi connection or the mobile data is running, it will work! 

Clearer and Wider View

Through the Petcube Play camera, I can clearly see the whole room and see what exactly my pet is doing. It comes with clear 1080p HD vision that allows me to see my dog up close with 3x zoom. The best part is that it comes with an HD night vision that instantly kicks in when the lights get too low. Unlike the previous version before, I don’t need to leave the lights on so I would be able to see my dog.

2-Way Audio

The Petcube Play Pet camera comes with 2-way audio so even if I’m away, I can interact with my dog. I was able to calm him when he’s anxious and reproach him when he’s misbehaving.

Laser Play

Interaction with your dog or cat doesn’t stop in communicating through this pet camera; you could also play with him! The pet camera comes with a pet safe laser toy that can be controlled with the app. However, to keep it running smoothly and precisely, strong connectivity is a must. Nevertheless, the laser can be set to autoplay mode that plays with your dog automatically when the camera senses movement. In this mode, the laser movements were smooth and precise that made my dog enjoy it.

Pet and Home Safety

You’ll definitely be assured that your pet is safe at home with this pet camera. It senses strange behavior and alerts your phone with pictures! That’s not all; every new Petcube Pet Camera device has a free trial of PetCube care. You’d be able to enjoy a 4-hour video snapshot of your pet’s activities throughout the day for 30 days.

Cons of Petcube Play Pet Camera

Some people who owned the previous version of the pet camera before testified that Petcube Play Pet Camera is a huge improvement compared to the previous one. The only downside is that you can only have one camera connected to one phone. However, when a client reached out to the customer care, the manufacturer promised that they are working hard to implement the feature. And you know what? It’s fixed! You can control multiple cameras from one account now. It was really amazing to see how the Petcube team reacted and solved the problem.

Overall, this product serves a great purpose and I would definitely recommend Petcube Play Pet Camera for all dog owners.
