For some time now, pet cameras have been all the rage. Having the ability to monitor your furball’s behavior remotely and check up on them while you’re working is something that undoubtedly makes life much more comfortable. But, it seems that the time has come for pet cameras to take a step further and offer some new possibilities for pawrents- such as getting a call from your favorite furry person.

With Petcube’s new feature that uses artificial intelligence to recognize pets, your cat or dog will be able to take a selfie video, or even initiate a two-way video call, just by standing in front of the camera. The video recording will be automatically triggered and sent to your Petcube smartphone app as a notification. You can save the clip to your phone, share the video to your social media feeds, or “accept” the video call and start talking to your pet in your best baby voice (we all do it, let’s be honest). The new technology is to be released this spring, and it will be compatible with both Petcube Bites and Petcube Play  cameras.

Petcube already offers pet cameras that enrich the human-animal bond and make remote interaction infinitely easier –and much more fun. Their Petcube Play camera allows you to play a game of chase with your pooch or kitty via the built-in laser, and Petcube Bites flings treats to your pet. Both of the feature-packed pet cameras let you see your pet, record cute videos, talk to them via two-way audio and have integration with Facebook Live and Amazon Alexa.

Tech advancements in the pet industry are always exciting news, but this one has the promise to lead to even better things in the future. The minds behind Petcube’s AI feature are working on developing tools for behavior diagnostics, which could have a groundbreaking impact on the way we understand our pet’s behavior and health. It seems that our four-legged family members have a lot to look forward to in the future!
