If you have four-legged family members, you’ve probably wondered what they’re up to while you’re at work all day. Sure, you can get yourself a regular camera, but Petcube takes pet monitoring to another level. Not only can you talk to, play with, and watch your dog or cat, you can do the same with other people’s pets and even shelter animals via Petcube’s app. And the best part? You don’t need to own a unit to play.

When your pets aren’t in the mood to be friendly (which, let’s be honest, is more often than not if you have cats), you can go through a list of public Petcube cameras to play with others from around the country. The Petcube’s laser toy will turn on and you’ll be able to control it and watch the animals go crazy. Shelters, sanctuaries, and cat cafes have also set up Petcubes in their facilities, so you can play with animals while they wait for their forever homes.

If you’re concerned about privacy with your own Petcube, there’s an option to keep your camera private to only you or a group of friends and family. If you want to make it public, you can also choose a specific time of day and how long you want other people to be interacting with your furry friends. Petcube does feature a two-way audio stream through a built-in microphone and speaker, but you can choose to turn those off when sharing your Petcube with the public.

Petcube comes in three colors, is super sleek, and won’t disturb your home decor as it’s only a four-inch cube. In addition to being pretty weighty (1.3 pounds), it has a non-slip bottom surface and can be mounted atop a tripod, in case you’re worried pup or kitty will knock it over. Setup can be done in a matter of seconds by just following a couple prompts through the app to connect it to your home’s Wi-Fi.

Another cool feature of Petcube is its Care function. By subscribing to a plan, Petcube can be turned into a surveillance system and automatically record video if there are any major sound and motion disturbances in your home. Videos are then stored in a secure and private cloud for browsing later.

And while it seems like the Petcube can basically do everything, it looks like they’re getting ready to launch one that dispenses treats! Learn more about Petcube and order one for your home here.
