Why we recommend Furbo
Furbo is a sleek, beautiful pet camera that holds up to 100 treats and can fling them one at a time, up to eight feet away. It also streams live video and sends you bark alerts so you can tell your pup to keep it down. It’s a great way to engage with your animal and keep them from getting bored when you’re away from home.
Key features and flaws
The Furbo pet camera has a lot of great perks, but a lot of them are available only with the Furbo Dog Nanny subscription, an additional $6.99 per month. With the subscription, you get 24-hour event-based cloud recording, the ability to save video and send it to your friends and family, and the option to get alerts for any humans coming and going. It’s free for the first 90 days, so it’s a good chance to try it out.
You can control this dog camera only through the Furbo app, and some users report issues with setup. You can usually resolve the issue with the old turning-the-camera-off-and-on-again trick. If that doesn’t work, you can contact customer service. Unfortunately, they’re available only via live chat and email.
ASecureLife’s recommendation: Furbo looks great, works well, and lets you treat your pets from afar. It’s a great choice if you’re looking for something more aesthetically pleasing.
