Pet Camera KittyO Provides Peace Of Mind For Pet Parents
We tested out the KittyO, a pet camera with a laser pointer and treat dispenser that you control remotely through an app. Do YOU have a pet camera yet?
If you haven't heard yet, KittyO is a pet camera, treat dispenser, and laser pointer all in one device. You control it remotely through an app on your phone - great for pet owners who *GASP!* actually have to leave the house every now and then.
It connects through your home Wi-Fi, and you can access the KittyO app anywhere you have internet service on your phone. Through the app, you can:
- Use the laser pointer to play with your cat
- Dispense treats
- Record photos and videos through the app's camera
- Talk to your cat (in a normal voice if you're a normal person, OR in demon-like tones to scare your cat, if you're me)
- OR, just creepily spy on your cat (which is what I do most of the time - he just looks so angelic when he's sleeping!)
Here's Thomas playing with the laser pointer (and then getting chicken treats!):
Sometimes I'll spy on him during the middle of the day to test my theory that as soon as I leave the house, he lays down for a nap and then awakens when I return, rejuvenated with the energy of ten thousand lightning bolts. Thanks to the KittyO, I now know that this is in fact true. I can also wake him up with my demon-voices and wear him out a little with the laser pointer.
Thomas is fickle when it comes to laser pointers - usually he loves them but he often loses interest quickly. The KittyO laser pointer is no different, except that he sometimes gets distracted by the laser moving around in the unit, and just stares at it. Although ... it's very possible that he also could be confused by my demon-voices coming through the unit's speaker. Really, it's anyone's guess.
It's really easy to set up, and the peace of mind you get from being able to check in on your pets is by far the best part (although Thomas would argue that it's the treat dispenser):
