FURBO DOG CAM­ERA

Australian T3 - - SMART PET FEEDERS -

Smart pet feed­ers aren’t the sex­i­est of home de­vices, but Furbo’s treat cam bucks the trend with its curved con­struc­tion and wood-panel feed lid. It’s also got a ca­pa­ble 1080p cam­era on board, which of­fers crisp vi­su­als via the smart­phone app, day or night. Its USP is a treat-dis­pens­ing port, which un­like the Pawbo, shoots out kib­ble with such vigour that it can cover some se­ri­ous dis­tance. This didn’t work so well with cat treats – they’re smaller than dog kib­ble, and cats don’t seem to like ob­jects fired at their face – but as this is mar­keted as a dog cam, then fair game. Within the app you have lots of op­tions, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to record a treat noise upon dis­pens­ing and bark­ing alerts (so you know they want a treat). Un­like the oth­ers here, Furbo can’t be screwed to a sur­face, so those with ram­bunc­tious pooches look away.

VER­DICT

T3 SAYS As treat cams go, Furbo is the most ca­pa­ble of them all, but the ve­loc­ity of the treat dis­penser might not be suit­able for all types of pets.
