We are always in the know when it comes to the latest technological gadgets and devices that make our homes smart, but there’s also been a recent influx of tech gadgets designed for our furry friends. It’s a moot point that we love our pets, but sometimes we can’t feed them on time, aren’t there to prevent them from ripping the house apart, or worry that unwanted critters may be entering the home by way of the pet door. We’ve scoured the web and came across a few gadgets that will help put your mind at ease while making your home a smarter one for you and your pets.

Petnet SmartFeeder

One of the best devices on our list is this high-tech pet food dispenser. Gone are the days when you would worry about running home to feed your dog on time! All you need to do is schedule the feeder on Petnet’s app and the SmartFeeder will dispense an allotted quantity of food when it’s feeding time. It can even track your pet’s calories and adjust his diet accordingly, ensuring your pooch maintains a healthy diet.

Amazon Echo Dot

As the hottest tech tool on the market, the Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device* that responds in even the noisiest of environments. It can set alerts reminding you to feed your pet, plays music when connected to a bluetooth speaker, control smart home devices, provide information, and more. Small and compact in design, the Echo Dot benefits pets and their human counterparts equally.

Petcube Bites

We always wonder what our dogs or cats are doing when we aren’t home, and it’s not just to see if they broke the vase or ripped through all the pillows. You want to know if your pet is doing fine. Are they alone and feeling lonely, hurt, or are you simply missing them and want to talk and play with them? Petcube Bites does everything and more in that aspect. Apart from showing what your pet is doing, this pet cam lets you talk to your pet, and you can even reward your pet with a treat. With this all in one awesomeness, your pet won’t miss you even when you are away from him getting drinks or working a late night at the office. Talk to them, play with them and reward them for a being a good pet. Who’s a good boy?!

Passport Electronic Pet Door

Those little pet doors make your life and your pet’s life very convenient. No longer will your furry friend have to wait for you to open the door every time he wants to run out to the yard to do his business. On the other hand, you can’t help but think about the possibility that unwanted visitors can gain access to your home by way of said pet door. The Passport Electronic Pet Door is a high-tech pet door that helps solve this issue. The Passport Electronic Pet Door uses a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) key that is worn on your pet’s collar, giving you the peace of mind that only your pet(s) can go in and out as they please. You can even control the number of entries and exits your pets can have during the day, keeping your house safe from strays wandering in. Setting changes and pet tracking features are all easily programmable through your computer or smartphone.

Technology has taken a leap in not just gadgets for humans, but our four-legged friends. Is your smart home pet-friendly, or do you use any smart gadgets for your pets? Let us know in the comments below!
