Hello Mi Fans,

It seems that pet lovers are not going to get enough when it comes to their beloved pets.  It does not come as a surprise that more and more pet parents are buying pet cameras that allow them to see and interact with their furry babies when they are not home. There are a lot of pet cameras out there that also have a treat dispenser thrown in. One of these is Furbo Dog Camera

The only treat-tossing dog camera designed specifically for dogs, today announced the launch of a new, smarter model – featuring an upgraded camera and Smart Dog Alerts. As the first AI-powered dog camera, Furbo now uses machine learning and computer vision to detect various dog activities such as chewing, pacing back and forth, or two dogs playing together. Available through the Smart Dog Alerts functionality which notifies users of changes in a dog's behavior in real-time, Furbo will also snap and send a selfie when a dog looks directly at the camera. Unlike other home monitors that send general motion and sound alerts, Furbo's smart alerts only notify users of dog-related events.

Check out Furbo:

Furbo allows you to check in on your dogs, talk to them, and toss them treats.  It doesn’t just drop the treats, but it tosses them, thereby adding an element of fun for your furry friends.  The Furbo Dog Camera has included the many inputs of veterinarians and professional dog trainers, making it an ideal product for dog lovers. Features of the Furbo

The Furbo Dog Camera offers the following features:

  • HD camera. Furbo uses a high-definition camera that gives you videos with a 720-pixel resolution

  • Treat dispenser. Furbo distinguishes itself from other pet cameras through a treat dispenser that tosses the treats instead of just dropping them.  Your dogs can run after and catch the tossed treat.  Furbo also allows you to record a message to your dog, commanding it to catch the treats.

  • Night vision. Furbo has night vision LEDs that help you see things in the dark.  You can check in even with the curtains closed or even at night.

  • Bark alerts. The moment your dog barks, the Furbo Dog Camera will notify you on your smartphone.  This can help you identify if something is wrong, like an intruder coming in.

  • Wi-Fi support and mobile app. Furbo connects to your Wi-Fi network and allows you to control and see things from your smartphone.  You can use the mobile app to talk to your dog or to offer it soothing words when it is anxious.  Then you can launch a treat to reward your dog for doing something good.  Using the mobile app, you can share captured photos and videos on Facebook, Line, and Whatsapp, or attach them to an SMS or to an e-mail message.

  • Designed for dogs. While you can probably use Furbo for cats and other pets, too, its design and functionality are mainly intended for dogs.  The device can detect barks, and the cool blue light attracts your dog’s attention and trains it to pay attention.

  • Train your dogs. Furbo Dog Camera has several features that are included to help you train your dog.  The color of the LED lights is blue, which makes it very noticeable to your dogs.  The treat launcher also has a very audible clicking sound that mimics the sound of the clicking devices that professional dog trainers use.

  • Automatic shutdown. If you are worried about privacy, you can stop the Furbo Dog Camera from monitoring your pet when you get home.  Using Bluetooth technology on your smartphone, the camera will sense if you are home and can turn itself off.

"Dog parents who use Furbo Dog Camera already love to see, talk, and toss treats to their dogs when not at home. But most of all, they love to receive real-time alerts so they know everything is okay with their fur-babies while away, Smart Dog Alerts is a solution to let pup parents know their dog is safe and happy at home. By integrating AI and dog recognition intelligence, Furbo becomes a pet tech pioneer in solving one of the biggest worries for dog parents: having to leave their dogs at home alone." said Victor Chang, CEO of Tomofun, the company behind Furbo.

Furbo's dog recognition technology is powered by AI, so it is always getting smarter through more advanced detections and alerts. Furbo leverages machine learning and its large community of users to continually train and evolve the technology. The more pup parents use Smart Dog Alerts, the more Furbo learns about a dog's patterns and behaviors.

An essential feature of the smarter Furbo, Smart Dog Alerts are delivered via both real-time notifications as well as a daily timeline, which allows users to review a breakdown of the events and behaviors exhibited by a dog throughout the day. The timeline of events is especially beneficial to assisting pup parents in identifying patterns, or irregularities, in a dog's daily activities. Smart Dog Alerts available today include:

Dog Activity Alert – Furbo will send an alert when it identifies continuous activities, like a dog pacing back-and-forth, acting mischievously, or getting a burst of energy and zooming around the house with a ball. In addition to knowing when a dog is active, it is also an important feature to identify characteristics of separation anxiety.

Dog Selfie Alert – Furbo now knows when your dog is looking directly into the camera, prompting the most Instagram-worthy selfies to be taken. Adoring dog parents then receive a notification through the Furbo app letting them know their dog is thinking of them and wants to play, or just wants a treat tossed their way.

Person Alert – Identifying when a human comes into view, Furbo users will be alerted whether a dog walker is scheduled to stop by mid-day or an intruder enters the home.

In addition to the launch of AI capabilities and a suite of Smart Dog Alerts, Furbo now comes equipped with 1080p HD camera with 4x zoom, 160-degree wide-angle lens, night vision and an increased treat well that will hold more than 100 pieces. As Furbo's dog recognition technology continues to be trained.

Furbo is the world's first treat-tossing camera designed just for dogs. It lets you see, talk and toss treats to your dog when you're not home. Launched in 2016, Furbo Dog Camera is the best-selling dog camera on Amazon in five countries. Furbo is a property of Tomofun, a pet technology company dedicated to bringing joy and innovation to every pet lover in the world. Tomofun is headquartered in Bellevue, Wash. with offices in Taiwan, Japan and Vancouver. So what do you guys think? Too cool or not? Do REPLY down your opinions.
