There’s a reason why so many pet owners have attached mini cameras to their pets during the day — aren’t we all wondering what they do when we’re away?
The treat-tossing Furbo Dog Camera is designed specifically for dogs, and the Bellevue-based company recently released a new model with an upgraded camera and features.
The latest camera is designed with AI machine-learning and computer vision to detect your dog’s activities during the day. When you’re dog is active, the devise pings you with an alert about the dog’s behavior in real-time and also will snap and send a selfie when the dog looks directly at the camera. At the end of the day, you can view a timeline of your dog’s activity to identify patterns or irregularities.
Furbo also will send an alert when a human comes into view, so you know when your dog walker stops by or if there’s an intruder. It’s equipped with 1080p HD camera with 4x zoom, 160-degree wide-angle lens, night vision, and a treat well that can hold more than 100 pieces.
“Dog parents who use Furbo Dog Camera already love to see, talk, and toss treats to their dogs when not at home. But most of all, they love to receive real-time alerts so they know everything is okay with their fur-babies while away,” said Victor Chang, CEO of Tomofun, the company behind Furbo. “Smart Dog Alerts is a solution to let pup parents know their dog is safe and happy at home. By integrating AI and dog recognition intelligence, Furbo becomes a pet tech pioneer in solving one of the biggest worries for dog parents: having to leave their dogs at home alone.”
The cameras are available for purchase online at Furbo. Give yourself or a friend the gift of peace of mind and your dog will thank you for the mid-day snack.
