Petcam is a small camera that can be attached to either a dog or cat’s collar to record daily life as seen from the eyes of the pet.
The life of a pet is often shrouded in mystery – what do they do when no one is home? Where do they go when they disappear for the night?
With the latest innovations from French company, Eyenimal there is no need to guess. Eyenimal is represented by Pet Innovations in Australia and has released a range of unique, high tech pet products – video cameras that allow pet owners to see through the eyes of their pet and a recording device that enables pet owners to see and speak with their pet. With Australians spending $7.4 billion a year on their pets it is clear that the pet industry is booming and now, more than ever before, people are motivated to spend on their pets.
Pet Vision Live
A stand-alone video camera that allows pet owners to not only monitor their pet but communicate with their furry friend. For those times you may be missing your pet while on holidays or simply curious as to what they are doing, turn on Pet Vision Live and start chatting. The device allows pet owners to see what their pet is doing whilst also allowing the user to interact with their pet via a two way audio system which can be accessed via an app on smartphone, computer or touchpad. The hi-tech piece is able to rotate 355 degrees horizontally and 90 degrees vertically to give pet owner’s every angle of their beloved pet and their surroundings. Pet Vision Live also includes infrared night vision to make the device a truly interactive system for unlimited monitoring of the pet and its environment. Pet Vision Live app is available at the app store. (RRP $179.95)
The Petcam can records two and a half hours of footage and has a built in microphone. The footage is great to watch with family and friends or share across social media channels. (RRP$139.95)
The Cat Videocam allows pet owners to view scenes from their cat’s eyes. The Cat Videocam is smaller than Petcam and includes night vision to capture the nocturnal outings of furry friends. It also includes a motion detector to stop recording once the cat is lying down or sleeping. The camera helps the owner learn more about the behavioural patterns of their cat while also creating a stronger emotional connection. Cat owners will be able to enjoy seeing interesting footage of what their pet has been up to. (RRP $189.95)
The Dog Videocam attaches to the dog’s collar and is specifically designed for outdoor canine activity enthusiasts. Thanks to its fastening systems for a dog’s collar, harness and cap for owners (included), it adapts to all situations. The device is sturdy and waterproof, and can film the dog and its master in their greatest moments: hiking, dog games, cani-cross or simple bushwalks to be viewed later. The camera includes three video recording modes. (RRP $249.95)
“These cameras are the perfect product for any pet owner to form stronger connections with their pet, gain insight to their pet’s behaviour, give pet owners peace of mind when they’re not at home and is also a novel way of seeing what animals get up to when mum or dad aren’t there. With no other similar, high-quality products on the market, we feel we have created something special here,” says Gary O’Brien, co-founder of Pet Innovations.
