3 TOP SMART HOME WAYS TO HELP CARE FOR YOUR PETS

Pet Sitting

Americans love their pets. About 65% of American households have some kind of pet. These pets are considered by most to be one of the family. However people have to work and may have to leave their pets alone and unsupervised for hours everyday. This can sometimes lead to behavioral issues. Thanks to some clever smart home inventions, we can now interact with our pets from a distance.

1. VIDEO FEEDS

Smart home monitoring systems and home security systems can protect your home from intruders and also allow you to receive HD videos of your pet any time of the day. You can see whether you dog is sleeping, yapping, listless or tearing up the furniture. This is particularly comforting if your pooch has not been well. It may help you identify any problems. Your pet may be bored and may benefit from a TV  or music being left on for company.

2. WALKIES

Dogs need exercise but there may be days when you don’t feel like taking Fido for a walk after a long day in the office. Smart entry systems in smart homes make it very easy to allow dog walkers or pet sitters keyless access. They can be given a temporary code which you can change any time from your smartphone and which is different from the main access code for the house. The security system can also record entry and exit so you know whether the dog walker has arrived as promised.

3. DINNER TIME

Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner time, smart feeders can provide the right amount of food for your pets at the right time. Feeders can be programmed to dispense different types of food and many include a webcam so you can say hi to Fido as he munching away.

You may think your smart home devices are for your benefit, but we all know that pets rule.
