At SmartWithYou, we don’t see why we shouldn’t be smart with pets. Keep on reading if like us you are animal lovers.
The IoT can be very useful when it comes to monitoring your pet. With a smart installation, you won’t have to worry about your pet’s safety, health or entertainment. For example, we can easily watch our cat at home when we are away for a weekend with our connected cameras’ stream on our smartphones.
Here are some ideas of smart products created for pets.
Pet Net Pet feeder
With a pet feeder, you can manage the feeding hours and the portion sizes. Smart pet feeders also match your pet with the food recipes more compatible to your animal. A good way to help with your pet’s health and with keeping your pet fed even when you are away.
Whistle GPS Tracker
GPS tracking might interest you if your dog or cat lives outside or if you own an animal who likes to escape. You can find GPS collars or pet location monitors that can be added to your pet’s collar. With Wuf or Whistle Pet Tracker you can check your pet location directly on your smartphone. GPS trackers often include activity monitoring.
It is good to entertain your pet even when you are not at home so that it doesn’t get bored. CleverPet, for example, is a project platform that entertains your dog with lights, touch, and sounds and gives treats. You will be able to see your dog’s progress with the provided app. You can also entertain your pet with products such as IFetch (automatic ball launcher for dogs) or FroliCat (automatic cat toy).
Kyon Pet Tracker
As we wear fitness trackers, our pets can also wear theirs :
- Kyon Pet Tracker, for example, is more than a GPS tracker : it includes a pacifier (to avoid fights with your pet and other animals), a heat sensor and an ultrasound to stop barking
- Voyce is a complete health tracker with for example heart and respiratory rates
- FitBark is another good example of activity and sleep monitor
Last but not least, you can integrate other devices in your smart home for your pet’s comfort. You can install automated cat flap or dog door: when your animal wants to come home it will detect its collar and open the door automatically. IoT brands have also imagined creating smart pet houses. There’s no limit to your pet’s IoT!
