Meet the All New, AI-Powered Furbo Treat-Tossing Pet Camera
One of the most difficult things for dog parents is seeing that sad puppy face as you prepare to go to work. Knowing you dog is alone for hours and wondering how they’ll cope with that is what makes even the best of us feel miserable and… Well, a little bit guilty.
Thanks to the constant advancements in pet tech, now you can rest easy when you’re leaving your pooch on their own. Various pet cameras allow you to monitor and interact with your dog even while you’re away, but Furbo, a long-time favorite with pet owners, just went a step further and now offers a new set of innovative features powered by AI technology.
Yup, you read that right. Furbo now uses artificial intelligence to allow you to get real-time notifications about your dog’s behavior and events that happen while you’re not there. These Smart Alerts include:
- Dog Activity Alert – The app will notify you as soon as it notices any continuous activity. If your pooch is pacing back and forth or running around the house, you’ll know right away!
- Dog Selfie Alert – I know all of those will absolutely love this new feature! Furbo can now recognize when your pooch is looking directly into the camera, which prompts the camera to take fabulous snap of your pup! You’ll also get an instant alert (sent with the snapshot of your pet) so you can reward them with a treat or playtime.
- Person Alert – The new AI-powered software is able to recognize humans as well, so you’ll be notified in case an intruder comes to your home, or if your dog walker came in on time. Handy, right?
As part of their premium service, Furbo plans to roll out additional Smart Alerts in the coming months, so keep your eye out for even more fun & useful features!
Even though it’s pretty awesome to be able to stay in touch with your pet from work or vacation, it’s not the only thing that makes Furbo Treat-Tossing Pet Camera great. Smart Alerts, in combination with daily timeline available through the app, can help you prevent and solve various behavioral issues. Having a way to identify patterns or irregularities in your dog’s routine allows you to recognize problems such as separation anxiety, resource guarding, and other destructive behaviors.
In addition to these nifty notifications, Furbo Treat-Tossing Camera now comes with a revamped hardware as well. The well-known design stays, but there are a few important boosts to its specs:
- Improved Camera: Now you’ll get to look in on your dog with a 1080p with 4x zoom, 160-degree wide-angle lens.
- Night Vision: Dark is no match for the new Furbo! Even when the lights are out, you’ll be able to get a crystal clear of your pet.
- New Treat Dispenser: The new treat well now holds more than 100 pieces, meaning more yummies for the pooch, and less bothering with refills for the parent!
And the best part is, if you’re interested in trying out Furbo Treat Tossing Pet Camera and all the amazing features it offers, you’ll be able to do it while saving $80! Starting from Black Friday up until December 1, Furbo will be available on Amazon for only $169. Just in time for Christmas, am I right?
