Leaving your pets behind for a day of work can be emotional for some. Fortunately you now have PetBot, a smart device that helps keep you and your furry friends connected through pet selfies and videos. The device enables you to live stream your pet’s activities, recognising when your cat or dog comes into the camera’s field view and begins recording. You can also use audio to attract your pet closer to get a good shot for a pet selfie. After it snaps a photo, you can share it on linked social media outlets. Your pet then gets a treat dispensed from the PetBot, just to add to the motivation.
It’s said that you can also use the tech to provide positive reinforcement when your animal behaves well.
PetBot recognizes sounds from both the pet and owner, which can be helpful for training, as well as minimizing any separation anxiety your pet — or you — may be suffering. You can also upload mp3 files and even record audio. For those who want extra info about pet habits, you can use wearables and track data in PetBot’s Pet Care Hub. Another feature includes bark recognition, which notifies you to "help reduce separation anxiety through the pet's barking patterns.”
“We created PetBot to improve the quality of life for all pets and pet owners, by creating a hub for pet-related devices,” said Misko Dzamba, CEO of PetBot.
