Smart technology for pets
Smart technology isn’t just for humans, now our pets can benefit from various smart technologies. Fitness tracking devices, smart doors and even toys have been developed to make both your pets and your life more convenient and enjoyable. Below are some of the best smart technology gadgets for pets and their owners.
Fitness and sleep
Sleep is important for our mental and physical health and pets are no different. If you no longer want to sleep with your dog and are considering moving them into a bed of their own, Petrics smart bed for dogs could be a really good thing for your dog and you as well. This smart bed will monitor their health and provide alerts for owners if a health concern arises. Working in conjunction with a companion activity collar, data is collected on your dog’s weight, activity levels, rest periods and even comes with climatic controls to ensure a comfortable sleep.
Remote play time
If you miss playing with your pet when on holidays or just at work for the day, a number of new smart devices could provide the answer. Pet Cube and CleverPet are designed to keep furry friends entertained while their owners are away.
Pet Cube is an all-in-one wifi pet camera that allows you to watch your pet from anywhere. You’ll also be able to talk to them through the speaker and dispense treats. It includes a laser pointer that can be used to play with dogs or cats remotely. Simply swipe your finger across the screen on your smartphone to direct the laser and have your pet careen around home chasing the pointer while you watch and praise from the wifi enabled speaker and video.
CleverPet is a games console for dogs designed to keep them mentally engaged when their owners are out of the home. Three pressure sensitive touch pads light up for your pooch, and when touched with paw or nose in the correct order, a treat can be dispensed. The games are designed to support dog’s physical and mental health, keeping them engaged and active while owners are out.
Food & water
If you’re sick of spilt water bowls or worry about coming home to a parched pooch at the end of the day, a pet fountain could be the answer you’re looking for. The charcoal filter ensures clean drinking water while the large reservoir ensures there’s enough water to last the day, no matter how warm and thirsty your pet becomes. The free falling fountain aerates water and collects in a splash resistant receiving ramp with an adjustable flow control.
Smart pet feeders can help to maintain your pets health, ensure they’re getting the right portion size and dispense food throughout the day while you’re at work or on holiday. There are various models on the market, so it is worth browsing some of the best to find one to suit you and your pet’s needs.
Keeping in touch
If your pet suffers from separation anxiety when you leave the house, a two way communication system might help. PetChatz HD is a two way communication hub that can be fixed to a wall and allows you to see and chat to your pet from your smartphone. Two way video chat is further supported by calming scent diffusion, treat dispensing and even the ability to record their antics!
