Pet Monitoring Cameras 

What Is A Pet Camera? It's a camera for watching the actions and behaviors of your pets. There are two basic types. One is a web cam for monitoring the activity while you are away from home. The other is a small Pet's Eye View camera that attaches to your dog or cat's collar so you can see what they do during the day.

  1. To make sure your pet is safe.

  2. To make sure your pet is behaving.

  3. To make sure your dog is not barking or causing a disturbance.

  4. To check on your pet sitter when you are away.

Pet Surveillance Systems

There is a large selection of surveillance devices available for monitoring your pets. Whether you have a dog or cat (or even the kids) it's a good idea to check up on them. Most pet surveillance systems are really web cams that attach to your computer and allow you to see what is happening to your pets real time 24/7 from anywhere in the world via the internet.

Some monitoring systems (home monitoring systems) just provide video for you to watch your pets. Others incorporate audio features in their design which allow you to hear what's happening in your home as well as see. This feature comes in handy if you want to check if your dog barks when you are away from home and if that barking is annoying your neighbors. Cameras used to watch puppies are called puppy cams.

Some pet cams are limited in that they only provide a view from one vantage point in your house. Others you to pan the angle of the camera for various views. A petcam can provide the answers to certain behavioral problems of you pet. By watching your pet on a recorded playback you can see how they act from the moment you leave your house to when you return.

Some pet boarding facilities use live pet cam feeds to let their customers view their pets while they are away. This gives the pet owner peace of mind that their pets are being well cared for.

Most pet cams are easy to use and easy to install and are accessible from anywhere. They do not require a great amount of computer skills. They give you a live video feeds so you can watch 24/7 what your pet is up too.

What Is The Best Pet Camera?

The one for you depends on how much you are willing to pay and why you need it. If you need one to check on the barking of your dog you will need a pet cam with audio ability. If you need one that will follow your pets actions in a large room you will need a pet cam that pans. Read all the customer reviews of pet cameras at before you decide to buy one. It will give you a good idea on how it will work for you.



Can You Trust Your Pet Sitter?

You hire a sitter to come to your home and take care of your pets while you are away. Sure, they seem healthy and fine upon your return home, but did the sitter do what they promised to do? Did your animals suffer any hardships while you were gone? Were they fed on time or let outside to relieve themselves as needed? The only way to know for sure is with a pet cam or a surveillance system. It gives you peace of mind.
