(^Literally me, puzzled as to why I waited so long to get this for my dog.)
You just plug it in, connect it to your Wi-Fi, download the free Furbo app, which is iOS- and Android-compatible, and you're good to go! Many reviewers have noted that the Furbo works best when in close proximity to Wi-Fi, FYI.
While other typical home monitors send general motion and sound alerts, the Furbo notifies you of dog-related events only (but it does let you know when a human comes into view, so you can keep tabs on a dog walker or be alerted of an intruder) and you'll get access to a timeline with all the photos of the day's events. The 1080-pixel camera has a night-vision feature and also knows when your dog is facing the camera, so it will actually — wait for it — SNAP A SELFIE of your pup and send it to your app. Aw!
Also cool? You'll be alerted when the Furbo identifies continuous activity, like chewing, licking feet, pacing, or jumping on furniture, which can help to identify separation anxiety. Plus, a push notification will also be sent when your dog barks — so you can talk down your anxious pup via the app if need be. You can choose which alerts you'd like on and which you'd like off, and the more the technology learns about your pup's behavior, the smarter it gets in notifying you of important events.
Your old dog cam is shook.
