Furbo pet camera overview
Furbo pet camera plugs into an electrical outlet and then uses your home wifi network. Download the app on your phone and it quickly walks you through the steps for set up. Once you have finished set up, (literally 3 minutes), you can view the camera live stream right from the app on your phone. What I love most about this pet camera is that I can tap the microphone icon and speak to my pet live, and watch their reaction. It’s kind of funny watching them look around, trying to figure out where I’m at. Then I swipe the little treat bubble and toss out a treat to my sweet little pups! What’s pretty cool, is that the pet camera can play a little chirp noise just before tossing the treat, it trains your pet to know good things are coming! I can even snap a picture using the camera button on the video screen and also record a video. You can adjust settings to record whenever there is activity detected and/take a photo. Received a notification when Furbo pet camera detects a human and/or your pets in sight. This pet camera is really amazing and well worth the investment.
I don’t just use it to keep an eye on my pets. Many times if I’m outside and my kids are inside, I open the app and live stream the video from the pet camera. I can see a perfectly clear, colored video with real time audio. It has come in handy with the “He started it…” fights.
I first started looking for a pet camera as I was going out of town and had a friend staying at home with my pets. I wanted to be able to check in and see how they were doing. I also wanted to be able to talk to them. There are other cameras that allow for live stream, video and audio talk back, which was important to me. However, this camera allowed for direct interaction with the treat tossing feature.
Both of my dogs really love this interactive camera and even my cat has quickly learned the sound of the chirp and comes running for a treat.
