Home cameras are smaller, more affordable, and more high-tech than ever, making it easy to keep an eye on your pups while you're stuck at the office or away from the house. These four cameras are the most popular ones that we see at many of our clients' homes, and based on feedback they work great for keeping watch while you're away.
Furbo Dog Camera
The Furbo Dog Camera has become ubiquitous at pet homes. Whether these cameras are "worth it" depends on who you ask, but they are certainly popular. They allow you to turn the camera remotely, dispense treats, and talk to your pet--all from your phone. While we find that not all dogs respond to voice over the speakers, it's a nice touch for those who do.
The Nest Camera a "smart" option for monitoring not just your pup, but your whole home. These cameras come in both indoor and outdoor models so you can keep watch on the area around your house too. They include 4k sensors, built in processors, and more. Its software can identify the people in the frame too. The downside? These aren't the cheapest.
Ring Indoor Camera
Ring, the maker of the popular video doorbell, also makes home cameras that can integrate with their doorbells or be used alone. These need to be plugged in and can sit on a table top or be mounted. A lot of our clients have these set up inside to keep an eye on their pup during the day.
KAMTRON Home Camera
The KAMTRON Home Camera is popular and budget friendly. This camera is easy to set up and connects to wifi for remote monitoring, and you can control it's motion to rotate it and move it up and down. It also has motion detection and infrared, so it's packed full of features for it's price.
