We all love our pets. They greet us after a long day, provide companionship and give us an excuse to laugh and play. It’s natural to want to create the best environment for your furry friends. As the market for automated systems continues to grow, more and more technologies are available that make pet ownership easier and can even be tailored to the specific needs of your four-legged friend. Let’s take a look at what’s out there! Keep an Eye Out
Keep an Eye Out
One of the most common uses of home automation for pets is the installation of cameras to
observe your animal’s behavior while away. Maybe your dog isn’t allowed on the couch and yet
his fur is still all over it at the end of the day. Or you can hear your cat meowing at the door as soon as you leave to run errands. Even if your pet is fine being left alone, you might want to check in now and then to say “hi!” With a variety of pet cameras on the market, you can observe your pet’s actions, communicate with them and even feed them while you’re away. You’ll never be left wondering what your four-legged friend is up to again.
Make Feeding a Breeze
Do your dogs greet you with hungry barks when you finally make it home from a long work day? Does your cat wake you up too early every morning so you don’t forget to feed her? Make these inconveniences a thing of the past with automated pet feeders. These feeders can be programmed to release food for your pet at multiple times throughout the day, and some can even be controlled by your smartphone. Last minute happy hour with your coworkers? No need to stress about running home or making Fido wait with these convenient devices.
Customize to Your Pet’s Needs
Every pet is unique, just like their owners. It’s easy to use home automation systems to make your pet’s experience even better, whatever they may need. Have a cat that needs to lose weight? Use an automatic feeder to regulate their intake. If your dog likes to come and go often, installing an automated doggie door will eliminate the need to manually let him out. If you’re training a puppy to stay off the furniture, consider using a harmless electric mat to gently remind her to get down. And if you’re a cat owner who can’t stand cleaning the litter
And if you’re a cat owner who can’t stand cleaning the litter box, trying an automatic one might just be the solution to your problem. Whatever you and your pet need, using an automated system will likely make life a little easier on you both.
What do you think? Are you gnawing at the leash to automate your pet’s experience Incorporating technology into the life of your four-legged friend will only give you more time for slobbery kisses, purrs and bonding with your best furry friend.
