Right now, many of us are spending a lot of time at home with our furry friends — and good friends they are! For most people, our pets are a part of our family, and their needs are our responsibility. Plus, finding a new toy to make your pet’s day is one of the greatest joys of being a pet owner.
For some, taking care of your pet represents another fun opportunity: the chance to check out the newest tech for pets! If you’re a tech wiz who is looking for ways to help your pets live a good life, check out the following list of smart-pet-tech below.
The team at Smart Home Construction can help you find all the best ways to integrate your pet’s needs into your smart home.
Smart Tech for Your Furry Friend
1. Smart Pet Collars
When looking for ways to upgrade your pet’s life with smart technology, one of the first things you should check out is the wide range of smart pet collars available. The Wüf Smart Collar, for instance, has live GPS tracking, an invisible leash, virtual fences, two-way communication, activity and health tracking, and training.
Currently, the Wüf collar is only available for pre-order, but in the meantime, you can check out the Atom Tech Bark Collar, which has a variety of beeps, vibrations, and painless static shocks that can be used to help train beginner barkers or loud barkers. There are also smart GPS tags available like the Tagg Pet Tracker.
2. Smart Pet Doors
One basic tool of pet ownership, the pet door, is a notorious risk for those living near strays and wild animals. Luckily, the brilliant minds in the smart community put their heads together and designed smart pet doors.
The SmartDoor, for instance, detects a SmartKey that’s attached to your pet’s collar and automatically opens when they approach. When they leave, the door locks again.
3. Smart Feeders
Another great area in which to integrate smart technology is your pet’s food bowl. The Petnet SmartFeeder allows pet owners to control their pet’s feeding schedules and portions. The feeder is controlled by an app where you can monitor your pet’s stats and health activity.
CleverPet is an alternative that releases food based on input from your pet, making it a great way to keep them occupied while you’re out. Petcube Bites is basically the best of both worlds – it lets you monitor your pet and give them treats on demand.
4. Smart Litter Boxes
One of the least enjoyable parts of owning a cat is taking care of their litter box. Again, we had a problem, and tech found a solution – smart litter boxes!
Smart Kitty is a self-cleaning litter box that runs automatically. Smart Kitty is alerted when it’s used and then uses a raking system to separate waste from the litter. All you have to do is empty the container. This is sure to save you a ton of hassle and sickness.
5. Smart Toys
Pet toys are the ultimate place to invest in some smart tech as the opportunities are endless!
There are robot toys like the Anthouse Smart Pet Companion Robot, ball throwers like the iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher, or toys meant to keep your pet entertained all day long like the Wickedbone Interactive Gaming Toy.
Generally, smart toys are on the higher end of the cost spectrum, making them more of a luxury item.
