With 68% of U.S. households owning a pet, according to the National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA)1, it’s no wonder that our furry, and maybe not-so-furry companions are an important part of enriching our lives. One way of improving our pet’s environment is to simply monitor them with the use of the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam HP500CKP Pet Monitoring Camera Kit.
I really like the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam to watch what my pets are up to at any given time and at any given place. You’d be surprised at how much use you’ll get out of it. You can set it up anywhere to watch your litter of new puppies or kittens and make sure all is well. You can set it up where there’s a lot of foot traffic and watch if your dog is staying out of trouble. In the summer, you can make sure your dog or cat is not overheating outdoors. If you have large dogs and toddlers, it’s only common sense to have a monitoring system.
Live in an apartment and can’t keep a dog or cat? You can use the Diamond PetCam to watch your fish, reptiles or birds and monitor things like temperature and humidity by setting up the camera near their gauges.
With the Plugnview App, the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam is very easy to use. Just download and install it on your mobile device, and you can see everything your pet is up to right on your smartphone or tablet. The PetCam also features IR Distance (night vision): up to 16 feet and can display your video feed at a resolution of up to 12fps at 640 x 480 pixels.
With the use of additional features from the PC software, the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam also sets recording schedules, triggers motion detection and sets email alerts through Windows PCs so you can monitor your pets with your laptop.
The Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam also comes with a separate adapter which plugs into any outlet which then plugs into your router. With this network connection, you can set up multiple cameras throughout your home. However, keep in mind when setting up your camera to ensure that neighboring public/private property or strangers are not being viewed or recorded. Only your property and private space should be monitored with the camera.
Enriching the quality of life for our animals can sometimes be a seemingly difficult task, but with the help of the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam, improving their general health and well-being can be real easy. Plus it’s just a really fun and neat way of staying connected to your pets as well as having the peace of mind knowing they’re being monitored for their own safety.
