Security cameras and nanny cameras are fairly common, but pet cameras are just now gaining popularity. How many of you who own a pet have said that you would like to know what your pet is up to when you are away from your home?
Here are a few good reasons to consider investing in a pet camera for your home:
- No matter how much you think you have done to pet-proof your home, it seems like they always find a way to get themselves into a situation you did not anticipate. Cameras with motion alerts and sound could help you stop your puppy from chewing on your furniture or your kitty cat from climbing onto the mantle and knocking a few glass picture frames onto the ground.
- Pets can’t talk, so they could be feeling unwell and you could easily miss symptoms. Especially cats are known to try to hide sickly behavior. A pet camera could help you notice if your pet is displaying any unusual behaviors.
- Your pet misses you. When you are out of the house a lot, they get bored and anxious – maybe even depressed. Many pet cams allow for interactivity by being able to talk to your pet through two-way audio and maybe even pop up on a screen they can easily see while you are watching them and talking to them. Some pet cams even come with bonus features, such as treat dispensers and laser light games. A few minutes out of your day to interact with your pet could go a long way in helping to keep them happy and content.
- An added bonus to having a pet cam is for general security reasons in monitoring your home when you are away.
Pet cams are increasing in popularity and there are a variety on the market today, so do your research regarding features and consider investing in one that best suits you and your pet’s needs.
