    Great fun for you and your animals!

    Love this thing. The dogs are hilarious around it, and it's pretty funny to wake up and see the videos of what the cats have been doing at night (it has night vision) which is mostly trying to break into the treat container. I've been surprised that the animals have not broken into it, but it is pretty solid!Set-up was really easy and the android app works great. My dog and cats sit by it randomly... hoping that it will rain treats upon them. No complaints!

    Loving my new Petcube!!

    I had been wanting a petcam for well over a year now and researched multiple kinds but never found one that had everything I wanted until I found the Petcube. The other petcams seemed to be geared more towards dogs and didn't have the two way communication that I wanted as well. I can't remember how I initially found out about Petcube but I believe Ellen Degeneres recommended it on her show. My husband bought it for me for Christmas and I absolutely love it!! Anytime we leave the house for an extended period of time, I turn the Petcube on and keep tabs on my cat to make sure he's okay being the worrisome pet mom that I am. I'm able to talk to him and give him treats while we're gone and not only do the videos give me comfort that he's okay, they're highly entertaining and cute to watch. I find myself showing my family and friends what he is up to as well. Petcube also has nightvision which allows me to still see my cat when it gets dark in our house. So far, we've only done day trips and one overnight with our Petcube turned on...it's going to be even better when we go away for a week and I can still check on my baby while we're gone. Thank you Petcube for finally making a product that works well for both cats and dogs and has all of the bells and whistles I've been looking for!PS - my sister has already bought two for her house after watching videos of my cat. She got this model and the one that has the lazer on it.

    Amazing! Breathtaking!

    Let me start by saying this is the best thing I have ever owned! Since I work 70mi. Away from home the petcube makes me feel so close to our cute Schnauzer Droopy! We are enjoying every bit of it. We love it! The camera and voice is so clear! It’s Amazing!

    This is great!

    I've only had the Petcube for a few days and I already love it. The app was very easy to set up on my phone and mounting it on the wall was a breeze too. I love that I can check in on my cat when I'm gone for many hours at a time just to see what he's doing or to see if he's okay. I also love that I can dispense treats. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to keep an eye on their pet(s) while not at home and/or offer treats!

    Love it

    My Frenchies love our new Petcube Bites! Let me start this by saying that my sister had a couple issues with her Bites when she ordered hers, but their customer service was quick to respond and fix all problems. I haven’t had any issues with mine thus far. I get to check in on my dogs all day and send them treats when they’re being good. The camera and app have been working great, as well as the audio. It was also really easy to set up.

    Easy set up and excellent image quality!

    I received my bites camera this week and am really enjoying it! It was very easy to set up and the image quality, even with the night vision, is great. It even came with a bag of treats, so was super convenient to start. My dog was a little unsure of the noise it makes when it dispenses treats at first, but quickly figured out that the sound it makes means a treat is coming and now she runs right to it! I love being able to check in on her when I'm at work (as I suspected, she spends a LOT of time sleeping!). There is also a pretty big online community linked to the service, which is fun. I have already recommended the Petcube to my dog-loving friends!

    Made with the pet-centric technophile in mind

    It’s a great concept - and a great way to connect with your pets while you’re away. If you choose to share with multiple people, interestingly, it becomes a spy in the room while you are there. It picks up audio as well as video. Be careful of what you say and do!The treat dispenser and adjustable distance is awesome - so much fun. At first, I was afraid my Labrador (chow-hound) would eat this device, but he hasn’t. I even have video of him inspecting it before walking away.I have two dogs and the younger one seems to be more active - he hears the monitor activate and he’s the first one there.I’d recommend to the pet-loving gadget freak. You will love it.

    Working great so far!

    What a great idea! I'm always behind on tech trends, so pet cameras were a totally new concept for me before I got the Petcube. I've read some of the reviews with issues, but I've been using mine for about two months now with no problems. Hopefully it lasts!Set up was fairly simple for me, and I was able to connect with the app on my phone with no issues. My family has an older dog with some health issues, so it's been a wonderful relief to be able to monitor him while we're away during the day. He also heartily approves of the Wellness Petite treats! The only downside? We've become even more stereotypically obsessed pet lovers.I've only had one issue that's required me to contact customer support (a problem with the mobile app), and the response was prompt and very efficient. I give this company major credit for their hard work to make this the preeminent pet camera on the market.As for the price, $179.00 is not cheap on my budget. But I have no qualms calling my dog my best friend, and for him it's totally worth it.

    it's perfect! I did have a little trouble getting it ...

    I received this as a gift from my husband so I could check in on my dog while we are out or during the day from work. So far, it's perfect! I did have a little trouble getting it started, but I was able to solve the issue on my own using the reset key that is provided. Customer service was fast and very friendly. I have not tried any other treats, but the treats provided do work well. They go in all directions when dispensed so the dog has to look around to find them. It gets him moving during the day!I do need a little more information on training him to understand the difference between my voice coming from the PetCube v.s. me entering the house. Right now, we are not talking to him through it because he runs to the door looking for one of us when he hears a voice from the cube. I don't want to stress him out!

    and it works great! The dispenser completely stopped working right before Christmas ...

    I bought the Petcube Bites in carbon black during Black Friday. The videos are very clear, however there is a lag when I'm watching my dog but I think it could be my WiFi. It took sometime to get my WiFi to connect but now every time I unplug it and plug it back in, it connects quickly. I did initially have an issue with the treat dispenser. Every treat I tried to use bigger or smaller treats but within the size range, it would not work. It kept jamming it up. I finally tried to use kibble, and it works great! The dispenser completely stopped working right before Christmas so I emailed Petcube Help and they updated the firmware on there end and voila! Within 10-15 mins, it was working again! I was worried because I had read previous reviews about the dispensers that stopped working. The Petcube Team was quick, helpful and cared enough to follow up. And for that and the peace of mind that the Petcube Bites gives me, I give it 5 stars.

    Excellent clarity and quality on the picture

    We almost returned the Petcube after more than an hour of frustration in getting it set up. The treats weren't dispensing and the live feed wasn't populating on the app. However, we were eventually able to get everything set up and have been happy with the product ever since. I find the clarity and quality of the picture excellent and like that I can check up on Finn while I'm at work. An added benefit we've found is checking that the dog walker is actually out for the full 30 minutes we are paying for. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Every Pet Needs One of This

    I love this camera. I have a security camera at home that I was occasionally using to watch my pet, but Petcube is superior in every way. The setup took me literarily 5 minutes. The video is very clear and having night vision is just amazing! I travel frequently for work and having the option to check on my pup at night to make sure she is fine is priceless. The camera angle is very wide and if she is not in front of the camera, I can just call her through the microphone. My favorite feature is flinging treats, she was a bit scare at the beginning but got used to it very fast, especially after she realized that this box magical​ box gives her her favorite treats. The app is well designed too. Overall a great purchase!

    Petty sophisticated pet treat dispenser with good video, cats walk up to it and meow!

    About a year ago I got a little treat dispenser that operated by remote control, there was no wifi, no apps, nothing, just a wireless remote to a battery-operated dispenser. Never in a million years did I think my cats would go for it but I thought it would be a goof to put it in my bedroom, if it worked, and dispense them treats while I lay comfortably in bed. The machine makes a little buzzing noise whenever I it the remote. To my utter amazement, the cats not only loved it, within two days they would come to my bedroom from several room away the minute they heard the buzz. Talk about Pavlov's cats.This Petcube Bites is the Star Wars version of that. Not only can I dispense treats, but I can now see the cats, talk to them and I can do it from almost anywhere. It's freaky. And yes, it took about four treats to get the cats to figure out that this was the big brother of their old buzzy machine. Now, since I work at home (writer), I typically only use this to mess with the cats (and treat them) from my home office on the second floor when they are hanging out downstairs. But I like having an extra video camera down there (I have several, I'm a camera and gadget freak) and I love that there is two-way audio with this, that I can zoom in on the (3X) and that the night vision is excellent. Recently I've been treating them from the car if I go to the store or whatever, partly so I can see them and partly just to ease their boredom, lol.I had a little trouble finding just the right size treat for this because you really need to find something big enough to fling and yet not so big it might bonk one of your pets in the eye or whatever. I mean, let's face it, if this machine can fling a treat six feet, it has a little umph behind it. It's not dangerous or anything, don't worry. (By comparison, the el cheapo machine I talk about above only dribbles the treats out a few inches, it does not fling them.) Your critters will, relatively quickly, put their faces up to the dispenser. Also, as with my simpler dispenser, I have a problem with grain moths in the house and no matter what you do, if the treats can get out, the moths can get in. I have no idea where the grain moths come from to begin with, but I've had to buy several sticky sex-lure traps to control them (and they work great). Anyway, those are just a few things to keep in mind and easy to solve. I'd love to find out how my moth colony began--it's been on and off for years.I have done zero with the subscription service yet though it might be a good idea if you want to record and capture things in the cloud. I think there are better and more sophisticated tools for that but I'll reserve judgement until I try their service (it's free to start) and then decide. I also have not connected this to my Echo (or Alexa apps on my Kindle Fires, which I guess I can also do). I have to Echoes now, however, so I will explore that shortly--and Alexa and I are wildly in love--ask her to give you a cat or dog fact sometime!.OK, finally, I'm a photographer and I will say that the video quality is pretty decent and the 138-degree angle-of-view if plenty and the optical distortion is not to distracting (yes there is barrel distortion (vertical lines at the outer edges bend, this is totally common is cheaper lenses, it's not a serious flaw). It's a pretty sharp lens. The night vision really depends on the environment. I've noticed that the infrared systems work best with white walls that can bounce a lot of the IR light around the room (though for some reason, some paints are more IR reflective than others, but that's beyond my job description, lol).Set up is easy and straightforward. I assume I'll be notified if there are serious firmware upgrades at some point.

    Your Pets will love it!

    Petcube has been awesome! I immediately placed the order and received it within 2 days! I was super stoked when I saw it at my front door. As a pet owner every Christmas I make it a mission in trying to give my dog the best gift. This year was not an exception. Although, the device is as big as my miniature poodle he didn’t seemed bothered by it. The picture quality is outstanding. The image is so vivid as if I were there when I’m at work. My dog loves it and I do too!! But I have a big problem now, because I don’t think I can top off this gift for next Christmas.

    Provides Peace of Mind, Fun ...

    We thought this would be kind of goofy and fun. It seemed a little gimmicky ... a little like it would be in the "closet- of-useless-products" in under a month. Well, we were incredibly surprised at the peace of mind this actually provides.Now, the look is super sleek. I doubt that it could disrupt the aesthetic of most any home. Therefore, there is no worry of another "tacky" pet product since this has a clean, chic appearance.Set up was a snap. And the photo/video quality is so much better than we ever imagined.The treat option is surprisingly fun and gratifying.Right now, everything is going smoothly (about one month later). We use it consistently and cannot envision it anywhere near the closet of "disused-stuff" ... I have a feeling it will remain that way.Highly recommended to folk who obsessed with their pets (like me). It will be super comforting on those long days at work!

    Worked great!

    I went away for a few days and it was so nice to be able to keep tabs on my pet! The camera is nice enough for viewing my pet. You can even snap a picture or take a video. The pet bite launcher works quite well but my cats didn't like the included treats, but that's not a problem because it can easily work with other hard crunchy treats. You can mount it to a wall or put it on a bookshelf or other elevated place. Didn't take long for the cats to figure out that treats would sometimes come out of it and I loved being able to see and talk with them. If you are away often, this would be a good solution.

    This is the coolest! Love how clear the video is. It has a sleek design and looks good in our home. We use it many times a day to check on our puppy and make sure she is OK. Great reward system. Highly recommend this. Buying 2 more for our kids to have in their homes.

    User Friendly, Great Customer Service, Good for Dogs & Cats

    I purchased Petcube Bites for my cat recently as I'm at work for 12 hours a day and wanted to see what my cat was doing during that time. I had some trouble connecting the camera to my Wi-Fi, and after reading the in-app and online troubleshooting suggestions with no success, I finally spoke with a Petcube representative. The rep was patient and friendly as we solved the Wi-Fi connection issue and got the camera working. My Petcube Bites has been working great ever since. I was given one week free trial of Petcube Care, which monitors and saves video 24/7, which was an unexpected added bonus. My last reservation was how my Petcube Bites would be able to dispense tiny cat treats, but it does quite well and can even dispense them a few feet across the room. It does, however, dispense about 5 small cat treats at one time, not a big deal for me as my cat enjoys the reward after chasing the treats across the room. I 100% would recommend to dog/cat owners that would like to see what their pets are doing when they are gone!

    Great for peace of mind when traveling!

    I set up my Petcube Bites right before I left for the holidays. I was able to check on my cat throughout the week to make sure he was okay. Super easy set up, and I really enjoyed the Petcube Care service, which saves videos and alerts you whenever it detects motion. The night vision and overall quality of the video are very impressive. I gave other family members access to the camera, and the app notified me whenever they logged on to watch (or gave my cat treats). All around, a great product. It has changed the way I feel about being away from home for long periods!

    easy to sync and watch dog, treat part not something we use but it worked okay

    I didn't realize I pretty much had to use their treats, but honestly, I got it more so I look in on her while I'm working upstairs or if we are out of the house. The camera part works great. We had no trouble syncing up the camera and I like that I can check on her, especially at night. She doesn't climb stairs anymore so I can check while I am upstairs doing laundry or cleaning or on the computer.

    Peace of Mind

    The PetCube Bites has been a life changer at my house! I have an elderly dog that has some severe medical issues. Being able to check on him throughout the day has been such a stress reliever. Both of my dogs have adapted quickly and are very interactive on the camera. I was also extremely surprised at how easy set up was. I can't imagine life without the my PetCube Bites.

    As a dog owner I have always been conserned leaving my pet at the house because he is still a puppy. Petcube makes me feel more at ease about leaving the house and the ability to feed treats while I’m away is a nice added touch. I would recommend this product to any pet owner out there! Easy set up and the app makes it so easy to use! Simply amazing.

    Got the petcube for my dog, Snowball, and we love it! He has issues with separation anxiety and this is a great way for me to check up on him throughout the day. I like to be able to talk to him and surprise him with treats! It's also a great way for us to keep an eye on him when we have to leave for a few hours because he's still a puppy and can get into some mischief. It's a great way to stay connected!

    Really enjoying this Petecube! I am not the most tech savvy and the setup is super easy. The product is also packaged very nicely with a mounting kit or you can sit it on a flat surface as well. Our dog took to it almost immediately and now runs right over when she hears our voice and can’t wait for the treats! I would definitely reccomend this for any dog owner!! It’s so nice to be able to see what she is doing when we are not home as well! This is the photo of our beagle anxiously awaiting a treat to pop out!

    I just got the Petcube Bites Pet Camera today and one dog loves it while the other dog is a bit afraid of it. Inside the box is a product list that says it should contain two bags of the Wellness treats but it only contained one. I had a bit of trouble getting the treat dispenser to work, but once I covered the little sensors (that tell the treat levels) with my fingers it started working. I then put the treats back in (I had emptied it to figure out what was going on) and it continued to work although it told me the treat levels were low.

    Reduced guilt leaving the pets alone

    I have loved using the petcube.It’s boundlessly flexible and I am very impressed with its capabilities so far.A few of the other comments mentioned that the treats were not working properly. The petcube actually gives you two options of treat sizes to try. You have to make sure you modify this depending on the size of treat. You can also adjust the number of treats dispensed, the distance the treats are shot out, and the timing (the unit allows you to schedule treats to dispense at certain times during the day).I have loved using the petcube so far. I think the range of customization levels and the flexibility it offers fits in perfectly with my household. It is also the only pet camera I have seen that allows multiple cameras to be added, allows you to share your videos seamlessly, and make your feed public or private. This is a great feature as if allows me to play with other cats around the world in rescue shelters.Another comment above was that there is no way to turn it off. While there is no off switch on the unit itself, you can select it on the options on your smart phone and it stops monitoring until you swipe to turn it back on. Very useful feature if your unit is in a bedroom.Very impressed with the treat capacity also. I can fit a lot of treats in the unit which means that I do not have to continuously refill it daily.I am actually going to save up to add a second unit to the system so I can track my Pets in multiple rooms of the house. So glad I have the petcube in my life as I now don’t feel as much guilt for leaving the Pets alone

    Great customer service!

    Purchased it to entertain, feed, and monitor my cats. They learned the sound of the treat dispenser immediately, and now they come running when the machine turns on! It is a fun way to see the cats while I am not home. It work for me since I sometimes come home late, and the cats used to get a bit anxious or even sick when they are not fed. Now they get a little snack to hold their hunger until they are fed later.The machine stopped dispensing treats this weekend, and the customer service solved the problem immediately via chats and emails. They are available 24/7 (even during the Christmas weekend!) Now the cats are getting the snacks again, and I can see them from the holiday parties. The camera works well in the low light too.

    Amazing, I love my new petcube bites, it is so useful and so easy to use and set up.I think the best use of my pet cube bites is the ability to fling treats out at my dog.It is also useful for dogs who have just had operations to keep an eye on what your dog is doing when your out and the voice mode is very good for talking to your dog if you need to!I would definitely recommend this to freinds and family if they worked away from home and need to keep and eye on them.

    I really love these petcube products. I have play cube for my cats to play laser with, and wanted the treat tossing cam for my dog. I was not disappointed.

    Overall the Petcube was easy to setup and is real fun to use

    Overall the Petcube was easy to setup and is real fun to use.The quality of the video is really good and the app simple to use.At first our dog was scared of the machine due to the noise it makes when dispensing a treat. It took a little training (and realization that treats were at play) for it to relax.Attention needs to be taken to pick the right size treats. Too big and they will jam, too small and multiple treats will be dispensed at once.

    The Petcube Bites is amazing! We have it setup in our kitchen and can keep an eye on our 2 crazy pups whenever we're not home! We're able to talk to them, we can see them & best of all we can "fling" them treats from the swipe of our phone. It's so comforting knowing that we have the ability to stay in touch with Rocket & Riley when we're away from the house. The video is really high quality, too. I would highly recommend this product for all of you pet owners out there!!

    Great product for a pet owner

    This has been an absolute lifesaver! Being able to check in on him, give him some treats and be able to talk to him when we're out is fantastic and so reassuring. I hate leaving this loving, over excited, needy little guy. Plus I get to see all the mischief he gets up too when he thinks we're not looking!

    Great pet gadget!

    I’ve been thinking about getting a pet monitor for a while now, so after reading some reviews I decided to give Petcube a go.I really like this camera. The packaging was really nice (I always think this gives you a good idea on the quality of the product). It was a lot larger than I was expecting, but it fits perfectly on my shelf and doesn’t stand out too much.The camera is great for checking up on my dog when I'm out the house. The camera quality is really good, the wide angle means I can see the majority of the room. It works really well in low light too- the night vision features is very clear.It was easy to set up. Sometimes the app tells me the camera is offline, but if I close and reopen the app it works fine again. Our WiFi is a bit hit and miss though so that’s the likeliest cause!The voice function works perfectly well. It’s very clear and you can understand if someone speaks through it. It’s also two way, so I can use this to listen in at home if I do get an alert that there is any noise.The app is well set up, and easy to use, I like watching the public petcubes lol. You can customise notifications too, to get alerts from the camera if it senses noise/motion, or none at all if youdisable it.The treat flinging function is really fun. It is though relatively noisy. You can choose the distance the treat shoots out. I’ve been struggling to find some treats to use in it. My dogs has allergies so finding treats that she can both eat & fit in the machine is hard. I was hoping to use some of her kibble but they were too small!Overall I’m pleased with this product. I’d recommend to my friends. Great for peace of mind!

    I love our Petcube Bites

    I love our Petcube Bites! It is fun to see what my pets do all day long while I am gone. I am happy to see that my dogs spends less time on the couch than I thought he did. It is also great to be able to fling treats, and it is fun that you can control how far you fling them. My pets have quickly learned that it is a magical treat machine, so spend lots of time hanging out by the camera. It is cool that you can also allow access for friends to fling treats from their phones as well.

    Easy to setup, works like a charm!

    I love the Petcube bites! The night vision camera has allowed me to check in on my dogs while I'm traveling for work and gives me peace of mind when I'm away. I can also interact with them through voice or give them a little treat which I feel helps keep them happy. The added bonus of allowing others to be able to connect in and also check on the animals while I'm away is amazing.Their support team has been helpful as well with pushing new firmware. Overall, install was a breeze and the device has been working quite well.Quite happy with my purchase!

    Really easy to use and great for checking up on your pet!

    My bf and I recently moved house, and one of the things we knew we wanted was a camera so we could keep an eye on our boy, give him treats and say hi when he was home alone.When it arrived, I thought the packaging was gorgeous, really sturdy and luxurious. It was a little bigger than we anticipated, but all that means is there is more space for treats. It comes with instructions in loads of languages, but once you download the app it walks you through the steps anyway.It’s easy to set up, and very easy to use, one of the best features in my opinion is the customisation of notifications on the app, so I can be alerted if there’s noise or movement!The camera has a really wide angle so you can see virtually all of the room, and is good quality. You can also take snapshots as well as recordings of what your pet has been up to, which is adorable!We’re still working on finding the perfect treat, as at the moment they are thrown sporadically around (or don’t come out at all), but so far that has been our only disadvantage! It does make quite a bit of noise when treats are being dispensed, and I can see this maybe being a problem with more nervous dogs, but with positive reinforcement I’m sure it could easily be over come!Ours is standing on a shelf, but it can be mounted to a wall if desired. It’s really sturdy, and has grippy feet so I’m not worried about it falling over.Overall I’m really happy with the product and can’t wait to keep using it!

    ... dog treats last week and we think it works great! Very easy to set up with our iPhones

    We got the Petcube Bites Wi-Fi Pet Camera with dog treats last week and we think it works great! Very easy to set up with our iPhones. The directions are very straight forward. The camera is very clear on the Petcube app on our phones. The dog can hear us clearly when we talk to him through the app and he loves his treats! The night vision works great and we love the motion sensor to record any movements happening while we are not around! We would recommend the Petcube to anybody with a pet at home!

    Great gift, peace of mind & easy to use!

    My bf and I decided to get the PetCube Bites for the very busy Christmas season as you can imagine. One pup at home and out for most dinners/evenings.It was a lot bigger and heavier then I imagined, but it came well packaged and the top half holds a huge amount of treats! (Definitely a plus for a more than one dog household) Packaging was lovely and luxurious and holds the device securely. Sadly my instructions that came were in every language except English! But there is easy to use instructions on the front of the box too, which I used. It comes with 2 adaptors (UK & USA) USB cable and that is. Super simple. Set up - just follow the app, simple.My main issue was the treats weight and size, definitely follow the instructions there. I tried to place some smaller treats in for my dog, but let's just say it caused the Pet Cube to shoot out around 10 instead of 2 - 3. Now went for an more appropriate harder treat size and only shoots out 1 now. I'd be wary and watch this for clever greedy dogs!The night camera vision is incredible, zoom is great plus the camera itself is heavy. Some might see this as a downfall, but for me, it avoids the situation of the dog knocking it down to access treats inside. My favourite parts are the motion/sound detector, it's particularly sensitive and I am now addicted to seeing what he does in whilst I am asleep. Usually running around surprisingly!I agree with some of the other reviews, why it isn't a 4 star for me. I'd like the ability to turn it off remotely when I am not home, not just unplug it sadly. But the app itself is also incredible, I love the community and the opportunity to watch other pets too. The other concern really depends on your dogs personality - Koda isn't particularly a fan of the sound. I haven't clocked if it's because he knows its not me and just a speaker? Or because he can't smell me. So either way he ignores the 2 way sound.The treat mechanism can be noisy and dogs need to be conditioned to it, Koda understands the whirring mechanism means treats, but he isn't too bothered by it. A nervous dog might find it quite frightening!Overall, its really a piece of equipment for the owners not the dogs. Gives us great peace of mind and I can relax knowing hes happy and safe and secure when we're out. Could be an ace piece of technology for dogs who have anxiety when left alone, could definitely use it as a positive reinforcement tool to change that!

    Pet Cubes Bites : WiFi Pet Camera

    The Petcube Bites Pet Camera looks smart and is certainly robust in construction with a generous container for the treats. It would fit well in any setting, it's neat and unobtrusive in design, so classic or contemporary settings would work equally well. It certainly looked good. I initially thought the instructions were missing as they are quite small and I couldn't imagine they contained enough information to operate the device but once you have downloaded the free app, through which the product is managed, you realise that the instructions are really very simple and done through your phone. It operates much more efficiently in terms of picture quality if it is raised at the correct height for your dog - my first attempt was on the counter top which is not ideal for a small dog and my second attempt was at ground level which didn't work either. I now have the camera pretty much at my dogs eye level which works very well.Treat dispensing takes a little practice so learn from my mistakes! Do not put any in that are too small as it will dispense several at a time (this will delight your dog but not do their waistline any favours!) secondly a little control in operating the app is required so as not to send them into your dogs face! It makes a kind of whirring sound when the treats are getting ready to launch - something which my dog worked out in a couple of goes! So just to be aware if you have a nervous or excitable dog, best to have a few practices to get it right.I have two dogs and I don't think I would send them treats when they were together in case it ended up in a bit of a scuffle but you will know very well how your dogs might behave and whether this would work for you. I would definitely be using it when one or another was home alone. Filling with treats couldn't be simpler and the treat container can be properly washed to ensure good hygiene practices.The night vision camera is surprisingly good, and it was really fun seeing what they get up to when you leave home. We were very touched by their little faces looking up at the door when we left but then hugely comforted by how quickly they then settled. I would imagine if your pet was unwell or having puppies it would be amazing to be able to check up on them whenever you needed to and call for help if necessary. You can talk to them through your phone direct to the Petcube which means you can settle them if needed or encourage them to sit before a treat is dispensed - whatever you like!We've had a lot of fun and there is a whole community that you can join or dip into at will, through the app, it even has live camera feeds if you're curious about other pets on the public forum. I did have a problem with setting up and contacted the on line support team and I have to say they dealt so quickly with my enquiry (which was entirely down to me not being savvy!) and couldn't have been more polite and helpful - always a good sign that a company cares about their customers.It's a relatively new product and I have never purchased anything like it but in my opinion its a great one and I am sure the app will be further enhanced and improved through updates. My only reservation would be treat jealousy when you have two or more dogs. Otherwise I would recommend this product.

    OMG! OMG! OMG! This is the greatest thing my humans ever bought me. It’s a little loud and scary at first...and I had to learn to sit back a ways so that I didn’t keep getting whacked in the face with treats, but this thing is my new best friend.

    This is a pretty awesome idea for monitoring your pet away from home and dispensing treats remotely

    The Petcube Bites HD Pet Camera Flings Treats was quite a bit larger than I expected. Luckily for me, my feeding station is in the same room as my wireless router so connecting this to the Internet was a breeze. I'm using this for my cat when I'm away. I tried a few different treats but I had the best results with the Purina DentaLife Tasty Chicken Flavor Adult Cat Dental Treats - (1) 13.5 oz. Canister which are the right shape and size.You'll need to sign-up for 30-days of free cloud service which includes a 10-day history. After the 30-day trial is over, you can either sign-up for paid cloud service (which I'm not going to do because it's way too expensive) or you can store video for free for up to 4 hours. I pay less than a dollar/month for 100GB of cloud storage so I find the $10/month subscription fee to be outrageously high. (I docked 1 star for the high cost of cloud storage.)The app works as expected and the camera works well in daylight or at night. The dispenser kind-of tosses the food randomly but it's more-or-less where I want it to go.

    Wide-angle security camera coupled with food throwing device for pets!

    Petcube Bites has been both a security camera as well as a way to see what my dog does when I'm at work. Push notifications can be enabled to pop up on your phone whenever movement is detected. This can be kind of excessive if you don't set it up right (don't point it outside where a lot of traffic is expected). The videos can be looked up in the app instantly and you can check on what was moving around in front of the camera. There is also a speak feature where you can talk to your dog! I found the microphone to be adequate and felt the money was worth it as soon as I saw my doggo's tail wagging away every time I used the trigger phrase of "puppybutt" through the camera. I gave him many treats for the tail wags. He is good doggo.The company's support is excellent. I needed technical support when setting it up as the unit I had was stuck in a "searching for WiFi" cycle, support replied promptly with a solution. Worked excellent since then.The treats are not thrown with dangerous velocity & you can adjust throwing force in the app. If you use too heavy of treats (>3 grams) the range will be significantly reduced to approximately one meter.Will update this review in a couple months with the pertinent informations.

    Honest opinion = I would buy again and recommend to an animal owner.

    Petcube Bites is exactly what I was looking for. We have to leave our dog in a bedroom of the house for around 3-4 hours a day due to work. We make sure to keep the room full of toys and things to play with, but we wanted a way to monitor the dogs activity in the room. I found PetBites and now have the ability to monitor the dog...but ALSO throw treats out when ever I want! The setup was easy, the instructions were simple and my wife and I can now check on the dog whenever we want. You can also talk to your animal through the speaker and hear any response they may have for you. This is all done through their free app. It really is a simple process that anyone can figure out.Honest opinion = I would buy again and recommend to an animal owner.

    Great and fun way to keep an eye on your pets!

    My cat loves Petcube and so do I! Right out of the box its simple to set up and the interface is very friendly. Within minutes I had picture perfect HD quality video and was launching treats for my cat to run after. Its a great way to check in on my cat during the day and has pretty decent wide angle for a pet cam so i can get a good view of the whole room. Really like the added bonus of having motion and sound activation.I would say the only problem I had was I was so excited to try it out I just started with it on the floor. Needless to say once my cat ate all the treats she was trying to paw at it to get more. Just had to put it at the right height!

    Made life so much easier

    I bought the petcube bites as I thought it would be useful to see what my three little ones were getting up to in my absence.It is so much more than that. It has been a life saver. Khaleesi our little one had surgery and it meant I could keep on eye on her when I went out.I cannot give this high enough praise. It was so easy to set up. It came with very clear instructions. It’s fun to use. You can speak to loved ones when your in a different part of the house. I use small treats so all three pets get a share. I used it to stop them barking at the postman as I am omnipresent.It’s reassuring beautiful clear images and excellent night vision.

    What a great device for keeping tabs on my pampered pooch. I received the Petcube Bites just a few days ago and my 16 week puppy took to it no problem. Really easy to set up, open box, fill hopper with treats, plug in and connect to wifi, tahdah....really simple and really quick. Camera quality is excellent, slight delay in sound (about a second) but I am really impressed so far.

    Pet Tech That Works!

    I had an earlier incarnation of the Petcube and this new model, Petcube Bites HD, is a solid improvement. This device combines an HD video monitor with a treat dispensing mechanism. The video quality is very good and there is also audio so you can hear what is going on. You can also transmit audio to the speaker. Combine this with the ability to dispense treats by timer or the app and it's a useful device. Especially if you are away for a day you could use this to ration out food. You can only use up to a certain size of treat so make sure what you use will fit in the dispenser. For those who like to spoil themselves and their pets this is a nice item to have.

    Pup is a big fan

    I bought this at the recommendation of a friend who had purchased it. I thought I would give it a whirl.The package is immaculate. Probably one of the better packaged product I have seen in a while. I took out all of the items in the box and put it together with little to no directions. Opened the directions to look at what app to download and that's pretty much it.Once I connected the app to my Petcube bites I was off and playing. My pup loves it and it gives me a good avenue to check on her during the day when I am not homeWould love to see a feature to dispense on the stop when I am home and don't have to use my phone

    Perfect for peace of mind when our dog is home alone

    I really like this camera, it's perfect fit checking up on our dog when I'm out the house. The camera quality is really good, and it's wide angle so I can see a good amount of the room. It works really well in low light too.I took me a bit of fiddling about to set up, but once setup was complete it works perfectly every time. Our Wi-Fi isn't the best, and I'm thankful the camera quality is good enough to allow me to see a good image when I'm at work!The treat flinging function is really cool, great for entertaining our dog when I can't be there. It is relatively noisy, so I think it'll take a few weeks for our dog to get used to.The app is well set up, and easy to use, the customer support section was really handy. I liked the fact you can customise notifications so I get alerts from the camera if it senses noise/motion, or none at all if I disable it.The only thing I would change about this camera is the addition of an on/off button, so I don't have to switch off at the plug when not in use.Finding the right kind of treats for the flinging mechanism took a few attempts with changing size and weight, I have found that the higher placement of the device helps to ensure treats are dispensed properly.The voice function works perfectly well although I haven't needed to use it on our dog yet as I think it would confuse her to hear my voice when I'm not there. The audio is two way, so I can use this to listen in at home if I do get an alert that there is any noise.I'm very pleased with this purchase, it's nice to have peace of mind when our dog is at home for a few hours. It can also record video and pictures, which I send to family members.

    Easy to set up and use

    I really like Pet Cube Bites! I've had it for over a month and it has been really useful to help introduce a second cat into our household. It was really easy to set up and connect to our network. It took about 10 minutes total. I've also moved it a couple of times to find the right spot to keep and it didn't affect the connection and started working immediately after I plugged it in again. I was able to monitor the new kitty while he adjusted to our home and give him space to explore. It was really helped for us to know what he would do while we weren't around. Now that are two cats are in the same space it's useful to see how they interact when we aren't there. The treat dispensing function has been really useful as well. I enjoy being able to give them treats while we are away. The cats have tried to figure out how to get the treats out, but so far it has been really secure. It dispenses about 4 treats at a time, so I don't have to worry about giving them too many treats. The app is also really easy to navigate. The device itself is really sleek and doesn't look out of place in our home. Overall I'm really happy with the product

    High quality and easy to use

    Our Petcube has been a great upgrade from our old IP camera. The video quality is solid, as is the night vision, and the lens catches a wide angle which makes placement a lot easier. The device is quite large, as some other reviewers have noted — we currently have it sitting on an end table but will likely mount it on the wall to free up space.You generally pay a premium for a product like this, and the upside is a really polished app experience. Setup is easy, the UX is intuitive, and probably most importantly, I haven't noticed any bugs on the app. Getting notified when there's movement is nice when I'm particularly paranoid about our pup being naughty. The only issue I've had is that sometimes the camera will lose connection with my WiFi. When this happens, I'll simply unplug and plug in again and it connects.Finally, the treat mechanism has been lots of fun. Our dog is mystified by the machine. We were a little worried that he would knock over the camera, but it's fairly heavy so it'd be tough for him.

    This is a great pet monitor / treat delivery device!Has built in camera, notification mechanism for smartphones and even a mic for 2 way communication. Overall a pretty darn good product.Some room for improvement includes:1. Feedback on smartphone when using mic sometimes, but doesn't preven the feature from working.2. Treat delivery mechanism can get someone's let more treats out than it can throw leaving some in the trough waiting for delivery.

    Got the petcube a few days ago. Came well packaged and had it synced up with my Iphone within 5 minutes. Super easy and my dog loves it. We gave my dog a treat while we were out christmas shopping! My kids love pressing the button to release the dog treats and watch them shoot out! The camera stream is clear as well. I've attached a sample picture from our first night of use. Worth it.

    One very happy boyfriend!

    I bought a Petcube Bites Pet Camera for my boyfriend as a present when we moved in together. He left his family home and his much loved family pet Jesse the beautiful Border Collie to move in with me. Setting up the Petcube in his family home only took 5 minutes and then we were ready to head back to our new flat together. It brought tears to my eyes to see how happy it made my boyfriend as he sat on our sofa, opened the App and called for Jesse to come to the camera. The video quality and speed was incredible as we watched little Jesse bound into his family living room and stand in front of the Petcube as she could hear my boyfriend's voice. We then decided to test the treat launcher and asked her to sit. It was almost like playing a computer game as we flicked the little bone on the screen and saw a treat ping out of the Petcube onto the floor for Jesse to enjoy. We called to see Jesse about 20 times that night haha! It was so nice as my boyfriend could also have a chat with his Mum and sister through the camera as they walked through the living room or were watching TV, so it really brought the family home to him through his phone. He has been obsessed with his Petcube ever since and no longer worries about Jesse and feels as separate from her :) The Petcube brought them closer and made moving in together that much more comfortable for us both! Would recommend as a wonderful present for anyone who's partner misses their family pets!

    What a wonderful product. When I opened my Petcube, the packaging was first class. Petcube spared no expense. Getting it set up was slightly challenging, but after two attempts to connect to my WiFi, I was good to go! My two dogs are now under my watchful eye. I can watch them do everything they are not supposed to be doing, like jumping up on the couch - ha! And then you have the curious one that wants to know where the treats are coming from.

    Amazing product which looks great in the house

    Amazing product which looks great in the house!First impressions; very sleek, high-end packaging that makes the product stand out. A little bigger than I expected but still looks great in the carbon black.Set-up; very simple, took less than 10 mins. You just need your Wi-Fi password and allow a little time for the software to update. I probably need to wall mount this but wanted to get it setup and working asap.App; extremely user friendly with some cool features such as a feed to local animal rescue shelters.Product; still getting use to the product but so far nothing but positive experiences. Allows me to check in on our dog during the day and make sure she isn’t destroying the house, particularly when we are out for extended periods at a time. Speaker and treat dispenser work seamlessly and our dog is definitely enjoying random treats being fired across the living room during the day.Overall; extremely happy with the Petcube Bites and will be recommending this to my friends and family.

    Fun bit of pet tech

    I found this product really easy to set up. You download the app then plug in the unit and the app steps you through the process. I had it up and running in about 3 minutes, much to my dog's delight.The unit itself is a little bigger than I expected but it is very sleek and unassuming looking so it blends in nicely on the shelf. I did have a bit of trouble finding the right treats as it jammed a few times when I first filled it up. I am currently using these Pooch and Mutt Calm and Relaxed Treats for Dogs 125 g (Pack of 3) which seem to be working - occasionally it does fling three at a time but my dog doesn't mind.The app is fairly straight forward and during your free trial, will record 10 days worth of videos which you can download to your mobile. You can also take photos or stream live to Facebook from the app. I did have trouble figuring out how to speak through it but you just have to click the cog in the top right of the screen and turn on the sound for 2 way communication.When dispensing treats the unit is quite loud which my dog was nervous of at first but he quickly got over it when he realised the noise means a treat will come. It is adorable watching his face on the camera as he waits for the treat to shoot out.All in all it's a fun bit of pet tech, I quite like the fact it notifies you of any motion so it does provide a sense of security if your pet is home alone. Would make a great Christmas gift for a pet lover on your list.

    This is a great product for a crazy dog lady like myself who ...

    This is a great product for a crazy dog lady like myself who wants to check in on my dog when I cant be with her. It seems to be very reliable with a great quality picture so you can clearly see what is happening at all times.I tried a few different treats before knowing what works best to fling out, the little guide on the lid is very helpful to make sure what you have is not too big or small. My dog was a bit worried about the noises it made before the treat is dispensed but this is something she is getting used to.I have not yet properly tried the audio in a real scenario, but it seems to work very well from what I have tried whilst being at home.Well packaged and comes with everything you need, even a wall mount guide. Easy to set up and use with app.Overall I am really impressed, it is slightly bigger than expected but you can see why when it has the treat flinging mechanism, this doesn't put me off it at all though, as the design is sleek and modern and I'm sure would sit nicely in most homes. I will mainly just be using it for the camera, rather than talking or flinging treats, so I can just check up and have peace of mind if i have to leave my dog longer than usual. So it does exactly what I need it to, with some fun features added!

    High Quality Video, Responsive, Easy to Use

    This will be so helpful to check on my dog during the day and treat her and it feels a bit like a security cam. The product is sturdy and sleek. The set up was pretty easy and I could reset it easily as well. The video is really good and clear and the view is pretty wide, so you can see a lot. The treat release is always responsive when I remote in. I know that the voice works well and sounds pretty realistic, so when my dog hears it, it is clear for her. I do hear an echo when I use the app though. Also, the notifications are on point, I hear right away if there is motion. Recommendations on how to acquaint your dog to the device would be nice. She seems a bit confused hearing me, but not seeing me.

    So far so good!

    I was super excited to receive my Petcube Bites Pet Camera. The packaging was very impressive – very nicely packaged in its carrying case with a handle on the side – it sort of reminded me of Apple’s packaging for the MacBook’s laptops. The setup was pretty straightforward – download the application on your phone, setup an account, plug in the device and connect to it. Then, just fill the large storage compartment with the Wellness dog treats it comes with! I used it a few times the first day and then for some reason the wheel that spins to release the treats from the upper compartment stopped working – I ordered a replacement and received it the very next day – great customer service with quick response time. I’ve had that unit for about three weeks now and it’s working great and making my puppies super happy! I read some reviews that the treats get jammed but I have not experienced that with mine. My dogs love it – I get notifications when the camera picks up their motion and I catch them licking the little compartment that dispenses the treats! haha I really like that I can add family members to access the camera and shoot out treats too! It’s endless entertainment!

    I purchased the Petcube so I could check in on my cat while away at work or on a weekend getaway. So far it has been amazing. The app allows me to easily check in on him. I love being able to set the motion sensor so I know if Mr. Kitty is being good and watch the short clip to see what he's up to. It's really cool that I can talk to him and give him treats. He has learned that it has treats in it so when I call him over he comes running to get some!

    Quick delivery and very well packaged.I was impressed with the packaging and look of this system, very professional with a really sleek design that looks great in in the living room.Very clear guidance on how to set up and get started and how to connect and start viewing!This is a great product that not only allows you to keep an eye on your dog whilst you are out but also enables you to fling them treats too. There is a great feature that updates you when your pooch is moving around or making a little too much noise!You can also record videos, take photos if you see a moment you'd like to capture, not to mention there's also 2-way audio that allows you to keep in touch whilst out of the house.All in all, a very innovative product that offers peace of mind when you can't be with your best friend in person!

    Cool product

    Really clean product design and packaging. Had a little trouble getting it to hook up to wifi, but after I rebooted my router, reset the device, and rebooted my phone, then it worked. Sometimes when I try to fling a treat I get a "timeout" error, but I'm guessing that is probably due to my wifi rather than the product itself. The device throws about 3 of the small treats that came free with the unit, so of course the dogs love it! One of them just lays under the unit now, waiting for the next batch of treats.

    Big Fan

    As I work long hours, the PetCube has allowed me to hang out with my buddies throughout the day. Although I would like to think that they miss my voice, I know they love that I can give them treats throughout the day, and not just every 12 hours. This has made traveling on the weekend easier on them (OK, I mean me) with me being able to see them whenever I want!

    Perfect for puppy check-ins throughout the day

    The Petcube has allowed me to claim the (temporary) title as “Most attentive dog owner” amongst my friends. With the camera and speaker at my disposal, I can check in on my dog (Chewbacca) at all hours of the day – work, happy hour, when I’m out at dinner. I work long days and sometimes travel for work. Usually, Chewbacca just sits around with minimal movement if someone doesn’t stop by. This is problematic because he has early arthritis from being left as a puppy. Talking to him through the Petcube allows me to get him to walk around and stretch and strengthen his legs.It’s fun to come home after having watched him during parts of the day and night. He doesn’t understand where the treats that I shoot at him come from, but user error is part of most of our Amazon purchases. Petcube has allowed me to keep track of what he’s doing when I’m gone while also helping me get him moving for portions of the day.

    Received the pet cube and I must say it’s way bigger in person than I thought. In the picture it’s looks a bit smaller. Operating was easy and it does co e with a small bag of treats but you will definitely need more. I don’t like that whomever sets up first has control, meaning it’s control by one person. They can add you and you watch live feed of pet but the first person has the control to operate this unit. In my home we all own the pet so that’s a bit frustrating. Apart from that I love it very unique and the video is absolutely clear.

    Petcube Bites is the best purchase!

    We just bought this product about a week ago and we can't believe how we ever lived without it. We have a labradoodle named Cooper who is the neediest dog on the planet. He loves and needs to be around people at all times. When I send him in the backyard to eat and go to the bathroom, he goes quickly and is back at the door and wanting to come inside to be with us. Now, we have the capability to talk to him through the intercom throughout the day when we are not home. He also likes to sit on the couches when we are not around, so now I can catch him, tell him to get down and then reward him with a treat for his good behavior. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time!

    We got the all black Petcube Bites for our cat and she loves it! Setup was quick and easy—we opted to place our Petcube on our TV console but it also comes with everything to mount it on a wall (on a related note, I was really impressed with the packaging of the entire device!). Within minutes we had it loaded up with her favorite treats and were controlling it from the app which is very easy to navigate.Our cat loves scrambling around to get all of the treats, which is fun for her and us! But the best feature is being able to check in on her while we're out of the house. The camera quality with a wide lens is incredible. Good streaming, nightvision for when the lights are off—and since the app can save recordings and automatically alert us when it detects motion, we either catch the action when it happens or can look back at the log to see what we missed. For the pet lover, I highly recommend!

    I absolutely love this product

    I absolutely love this product. My family and I do a lot of traveling so having the pet cube is a fantastic way for us to stay connected with our pup, Scout. The app was very user friendly and no one in the household any problems, which was a huge concern as my father is not the most tech savvy person. It is a blast not only being able to see and speak with our dog (I love that silly head tilt of her figuring out where our voice is coming from) but it is great to be able to interact with her by sending her treats. The ability to adjust the distance on the treat toss is also really nice so that no matter where we put it in the house we would be able to send her cookies. Whether it is being away on vacation or just missing my pup while at work and wanting to check in this is a great product to stay connected with you fur-baby.

    Pups went crazy over it - in a good way! :)

    Such a great gift for any crazy dog mom or dad - we have two little poodle mutts that took to it immediately. Really effective and fun way to check in on them throughout the day. It was super easy to set up (love the app!), and the pups love the Wellness Petite Treats that came with the unit. Can't recommend it enough!

    Dogs Love It!

    The initial set up for this camera was pretty easy. I had it up and running within 10 minutes; however, I did need to reboot it a few times until I had it working the way I wanted. It did not take long for our two labs and cat to figure out that it dispenses treats. Once I fling a treat out from the app they respond and enjoy the treats. The camera option works well during the day but does not offer night view. We try to keep an eye on the dogs in the evening; however, unless we leave a light on it is completely dark. During the day the image is very good (HD) quality. The lens is fixed and does not move or zoom. The 2 way speaker option works well and provides good monitoring. I believe it can also be set up for motion but I have not got to that section of the set up. Overall it is a pretty impressive piece of equipment for interacting with pets. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because it does not have a night mode option. I will post updates as I learn and use the device more.

    Fun, easy to set up

    Just set up the Petcube Bites Camera yesterday. It comes in very nice packaging with easy to follow instructions. The setup was super easy and I am not mechanically inclined. I did have a slight issue getting the app to access my microphone for the two way sound but that was MY issue. I went to the online chat feature and my issue was resolved within minutes.I really like that you don't HAVE to mount on a wall. You can see in my picture that I just set it against the wall. It can move room to room easily. I moved it to the kitchen area when I left for work because that is where my dog's water is and I know she frequents that area. When I got to work, I had to try it right away. At first Ellie (my dog) barked at it but she couldn't resist the treats. Ellie normally doesn't like hard treats but she devoured the ones provided.All in all, it is a fun gadget. The video quality is pretty good and the angle does cover a fairly large room. I will update the review if anything changes but as of right now, I am pleased with the purchase. It's nice to check in on Ellie during the day. Aren't you curious what your pets do all day!?

    Peace of Mind, Great User Interface and Tasty Treat Dispenser!

    Unboxing and positioning:It was a little larger than I'd pictured, but then as the top half of the device is a hopper for holding treats I should really have realised it needs to be a decent size! The box comes with all the bits you need such as a plug with adapter, USB cable and a mounting kit if you want to attach the device to the wall. I originally just wanted to stand mine on a table in the corner of the room, however as you can see from the pictures it didn't take long for my boys to figure out where the food was coming from, so I've now moved it to a higher location which due to the super wide viewing angle is actually even better for seeing the whole room. It also means my Petcube is less likely to be a casualty of greedy piggles!Set up and camera:Setting up the device was as easy as plugging it in, downloading the Petcube app onto my phone, setting up an account and following the instructions to connect it to my WiFi. The camera itself really is very good, the angle is really wide and the image is totally clear. When I'm out of the house I put the dogs 'to bed' and make everything is dark and quiet, so the night vision mode is a super important feature for me, which also provides an excellent, clear picture. During the day I'm often on a university campus with a poor connection, but even then I can still connect to my device and view the feed in a 'low connectivity mode', which removes the zoom capability but still means I can check on the room.Treats:Finding the right kind of treats for the hopper was a little more difficult, as I'd hoped to just use their usual kibble as it was the right size, but it was way too heavy and just poured out of the dispenser onto the table as the feeder rotated to place treats onto the throwing platform. I then tried a really light cubed treat, but the shape wasn't right for the rotating feeder as they were pushing the top size recommended of 1inch. I did have to go the the Pet Shop and buy a couple of bags of treats to find the ones that worked best which were oval shaped and about 2cm at the longest point, dry and solid but also not dense as to be too heavy. It now usually throws one of these at a time out of the throwing platform, though occasionally two might drop through. The throw distance can be set via the app, but this is dependent on where the treats fall onto the platform as well so is not consistently identical on every throw (as if the treat hits the side of the exit it will lose some momentum). I found again that the higher placement of the device helps to ensure treats are dispensed properly.Voice:I haven't needed to use this functionality yet as there haven't been any incidents (e.g barking) that I've needed to calm down, but I am planning to use the device to talk to my cat when we're away. From a test at home it seemed to work perfectly well though and the audio is two way, so I can use this to listen in at home if I do get an alert that there is any noise.Alerts and Video:The Petcube App allows you to set the conditions user which you want to receive notifications based on a easy to use slider from the main user interface. Just select the 'Care' option in the bottom right corner of the viewing window and you can select from CareAwake, which senses noise and motion, records onto your timeline and notifies you, CareQuiet which is the same as CareAwake without notifications and CareSleep which effectively disables Petcube Care, so the camera is not sensing for anything nor is it recording.This brings me to the main reason for a four rather than five star review - there is currently no ability to turn the camera off completely. It could be argued that CareSleep is effectively off, however the device is still in online status and the app can still be used to access the camera. For some people in my household this isn't acceptable, so the only solution at the moment is to unplug the power cable at the device end when we are home and then plug it back in again before going out (the device then starts up again and connects quickly, so this method is a suitable workaround).Overall:I have had this device for a couple of weeks now and I am using it all of the time to check on my dogs while I'm out of the house. I've not had any issues connecting to the device to view video and I'm always able to see exactly what is going on. I was really interested to see how they behave when I'm not there and it turns out that they mostly just spend their time asleep, but the piece of mind that I have from being notified when they are up and about or if they do start making any noise is really very valuable to me. Being able to dispense treats occasionally when I'm out of the house is pretty awesome, but I'm particularly relieved that when I do go away and the cat is home alone I'll be able to see and talk to her as well as feed her a bit from the Petcube, which will greatly alleviate my worry and enable me to enjoy my time away guilt free!

    Great camera and very entertaining!

    Love the Petcube! The camera quality is great (wide lens) and I love the video recording feature. There is 2-way sound to interact with your dog, which is great. Although I do wish there was the ability to turn sound on one-way, so you can listen to your pet without them hearing you. Setting up the petcube was a little confusing and the app is difficult to navigate through, but once everything is set up, it is awesome. I wish the device would dispense fewer treats at a time, so we could give treats through the petcube more often!

    Petcube Bites has been a great purchase for us so far - we have the Petcube Play, which we love, and wanted another camera so we could monitor in more rooms. We decided to go with this one because of the treat dispensing functionality.Petcube gives us peace of mind when we're away, and we like getting notifications for motion detection (so we're not constantly checking in on the monitor, we can see recorded video and know when to check the app).The couple minor cons would be that you need good reception on your phone or the app will not load live-view camera and this version of Petcube does need to be set up at a higher vantage point.However, think there are more pros, especially with its wide-angle camera view, great video quality, intuitive and easy-to-use app, and sleek and beautiful design. Talking to our kitties through the Petcube is always fun and kind of hilarious!

    I was really impressed with the Petcube Bites for my two cats. They were immediately interested in it and I love getting to check on them while I'm out. The camera quality is great and it's user friendly. My more food driven cat out of the two often naps in site of it, always ready for a treat! Great product I'd highly recommend this to anyone who loves to spoil their pets.

    I LOVE Petcube Bites (and so does my dog)

    I LOVE Petcube Bites (and so does my dog)!!!! There are so many pet cameras on the market these days, but all of the features of this one makes it take the cake in my book. I can use the super convenient and easy to use app to watch and talk to my dog whenever I want as well as throw her treats! She even knows the sound the camera makes when it’s about to pop out a treat and stands right in front ready to go (picture included :) ). Additionally, it had motion and sound detection and will take a video and record it for you to review later, which also makes me feel safe. The camera and app were both super easy to set up as well which made life even easier! I work 14+ hour shifts at a time, so having this access to my baby makes it all a lot easier.I only had 2 minor issues, one was that the sample treats were not in my package and another with my night vision camera. Both issues were easily and promptly addressed by Petcube within 24 hours. Best customer service ever!!! When I move to a larger place I will for sure be adding more Petcubes to my collection.

    I have gone out a few times now and it's great relief to know that the camera sends me notices ...

    I had been looking to buy a camera or some security system to keep an eye on my dogs. I have one rescue, Greta, who has serious separation anxiety ever since we got her. We have two dogs now so that Greta's anxiety has lessened but with twice the dogs my house is often a mess when we go out. The dogs are at home sometimes 12 hours a day, and while it's not ideal, it's what we have to do. Now that I have the Petcube bites camera I am much more confident about leaving them home alone. I have gone out a few times now and it's great relief to know that the camera sends me notices whenever something happens, like the dogs barking or if they get too rowdy. I've turned on the two way voice mode a few times when I'm at dinner at it's calmed one of my dogs, Bernie, down whenever he starts to bark at neighbors outside of our door.The treat function is great too, the dogs are still learning how to find the treats. One tip, when you get the treat bag don't dump the treats in like I did when I first got it. I hadn't realized that when treats pop out, so do all those little crumbs that are at the bottom of the bag. I've spent the past few days vacuuming up the crumbs from the treat bag that I dumped.Overall I really like that I have this now. I was so paranoid about how the dogs would act while I was out of the house. I live in an apartment so my greatest fear is that the pups have been howling all day, but now that I can keep an eye on them, I feel 100% better. Also, the treat function keeps them happy and occupied while I'm away.The voice mode is great too and doesn't sound robotic or anything. I had my husband sit in the living room while I went outside and turned on the 2 way voice mode and he said it sounded perfectly fine. My dogs both recognized my voice and even were able to follow commands.Overall I'm happy I got this. It's better than a baby radio and just recording device since I can talk to my pets and give them treats!

    The Pet Cube Bites has been really fun! I really enjoy being able to fling treats at them. The day after I got it one of my dogs got on the counter and ate some of our dinner while we were out and I was able to see which one did it thanks to petcube! The app is a little finicky but overall I am happy with it!

    Great for security of our home and fun entertainment for our pets and for us

    How much fun to not only be able to watch our furbabies but when we're running late, we can give our girls a few treats until we get home.I don't know if this is more entertaining for our dogs or for us.A bonus is that there are days that I know I'll be super busy. I just set our Alexa to automatically toss out a few treats at a certain time. Very convenient!I love how well I can see with the camera. Not only can I keep an eye on our pets but, I can also keep on eye on the house.The girls know the basic command to sit. So it's fun, for me, to watch them learn that even if they don't see me, they must sit before the treats are tossed out. Night vision isn't fantastic but I always leave a light on, when we're gone. So it's really a function I can't comment too much on.Because I didn't want them digging at the box knowing there were treats in it, I did put it up on the wall with the included hardware. High enough where they can't get to it and where I know they'll be able to get the treats and I'm still able to view the room.The 2 lbs of treats it can hold will last quite awhile. So I don't have to be constantly filling it or remembering to refill it. Just lift the lid on the top for filling. And the treat container does come off to clean.What I really like is the 2 way audio this has. Also has motion and sound detection. I get an alert, right on my phone, if any sounds or motions are made. There are 3 settings that you can set the petcube to. I really only use the "Awake" and "Sleep" modes. Awake gives notifications on your phone for sound and motion and will store them in your timeline. "Sleep" turns off detection and does not record events like the other two.With the petcube you get free 30 days of cloud service where you can go back 10 days or more of videos. After that, the service only gives you 4 hours unless you subscribe. $10/month for 10 day video history or $30/month for a 30 day history is a bit on the expensive side and won't be purchasing it.For the cost, I hope this unit lasts a very long time. It's nice to know that not only can I watch my aging girls while we're working. But now I can talk to them and toss them a treat during the day if I want to.

    Hours of fun with the pups!

    How incredible is this!! Been looking at these for a while and compared several models, they are all in the same price range and if you catch this one as deal of the day you probably could get it for about $170. With multiple dogs, we did have to play around with timing since one is a fast food hog! The machine was perfect and you can dispense several treats very quickly. And we love that it works with Alexa so anyone can dispense in the house. It works with any small or tiny bite size treats.

    As soon as I heard about Petcube bites I knew I had to have it for my furry baby. My goldendoodle usually stays at my apartment while my husband and I go to work and now we get to check on him daily and talk to him. He still gets a little scared when he hears our voice through the machine but he definitely loves those treats. I can definitely see myself using this device everyday to check on my pup.

    I dig it, better than other camers + 2 way audio

    I've had 2 cameras at home previously for the purposes of monitoring our dogs, a Samsung with 2 way audio & notifications and the popular Petzi camera that also flings treats but has no notifications or 2 way audio. This Petcube Bites HD is a great step up. Compared to both of the other cameras noticeable differences include a far superior phone app with the Petcube, great support, higher quality build, very nice looking compared to the cheap plastic of the Petzi and it arrived in excellent packaging, feels like a high quality piece of tech. Easy to set up. When you pay a bit for a quality camera for the home it should have all the bells and whistles, this camera does just that whereas the other 2 leave a lot to be desired imo. So far so good!

    Amazing Device!!

    My husband and I have wondered how the animals are when we leave the house. I always believed our puppy is lonely. Finally, we decided to get the PetCube! The device came in a well packed box with very simple instructions! It took about 5 minutes to set it up, test it out, and play around! While we are out and about, I can now check on the pup whenever I want!!! The app will let you know that there is motion detected, you have the option to let the app tell you when to check on them. You can activate the sound and talk to your furry friends and also dispense treats! The treats that come with the product are grain free and healthy! What a wonderful invention for humans! I highly recommend this product (AND THEIR TREATS) to everyone. It will relieve your worries about your animals when you're not home.

    Great for monitoring and interacting with your pet while away from home!

    Petcube bites has been so much fun and is useful when I’m away from home. The camera and app are very user friendly and easy to set up. The camera has a wide angle (see photo) so you can observe a large area. There are a lot of settings you can customize so that the camera meets your specific needs. I have mine set on motion detection so that I get an alert on my phone when the camera detects significant movement. The treat dispenser works great and helps me feel like I am giving my cat some attention while away from home. He is eating some treats in the attached photo. The app also has some fun options like allowing your friends to access your camera and give your pet treats. Or you can keep your camera completely private. One thing I wish you could do is turn the camera on and off from the app. The only way you can turn it on and off is by unplugging it. Overall I love this product and would definitely recommend it!

    What a great idea!

    I attached a Petcube Bites to the doghouse on my back patio. The dogs love it. My dogs constantly wait by the Petcube waiting for me to fling a treat. I can check up on them while I'm away from home using the phone app. When I talk to them through the phone app, it's the funniest thing because they can hear me but they can't see me. Their ears perk up and they look in the direction of the Petcube but aren't quite sure what to do, at least until I fling some treats at them. The product is very sturdy and well made. The camera quality is really good for both photos and video. The sound/microphone on the Petcube is very sensitive and can give a little bit of an echo effect -- that is, when I use the app to talk to my dogs on my phone, I hear my voice played back a second or two later after it is transmitted to the Petcube where I hear myself on my phone. But at least I know it's working when it does that. You do have to use the correct sized treats or else the Petcube dispensing mechanism can jam, but if there is a jam, it's very easy to fix by emptying out the container and then pouring the treats back in. The app lets you "share" the camera and treat dispenser with anyone you want to share it with, like family or friends. And you can set up specific times when those shared users can access it. Overall, this is a fun and great product if you want to keep tabs on your pets and give them treats remotely.

    Good quality video

    It does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Good quality video, and the ability to talk to your pet and give them treats. The only small issue that I have is that it sometimes flings way too many treats or the treats fall out of the dispenser and onto the table without being flung. And this is the treats that the unit came with. I’ll have to try a different shape or size treat to use. Other than that, every thing is great.

    Loved by pets and humans!

    We received this about a week ago and have really been enjoying it. Our dog loves getting treats in the middle of the day and is so excited when she hears it gearing up. This was very simple to set up, I'm not the tech person in our house and managed just fine. I will say there seems to be interference with the speaker but when I use Bluetooth headphones the sound is completely clear.I love being able to check in and make sure everything is fine at home and I think our dog loves hearing from us in the middle of the day.

    Great for food motivated dogs

    Arrived fast, well packaged, looked impressive in the box and was easy to unpack. The app is easy to download and set up with my device. Comes with a staple to accurately put screws into the wall and mount it. Be careful how far you flick on your screen as the treat do get launched a little harder then you’d expect, a short flick is fine. The camera is good quality and you can even zoom in to different areas of the image to really see what your little fur balls are getting up to. It’s great for food motivated pets with the treat dispenser, also giving you peace of mind while you are out at work or for appointments, you can still treat your pet and show you still care even though your not there. There also an indicator, as to when the devises camera is being used the white light changes to blue when being viewed and also keeps you informed of the treat level through the app so you won’t get to low.I think it’s great and it helps me more then my dog with separation anxiety as no matter where or when I can see my happy little fur ball.

    ... start by saying that my two dogs had a pretty good life

    Let me start by saying that my two dogs had a pretty good life. They have each other, a yard they can access any time of day or night, and copious amounts of petting from a loving family. But after the first 72 hours with our new toy I can tell Petcube is about to make their (and our) days even better.Packaging and Instructions: The packaging is nice and start up instructions are very straightforward. I had small difficulty getting the app to recognize my wifi, but after a few tries it worked out and has worked flawlessly ever since. Connecting to Alexa was not hard an seems to work AOK. Makes giving the dogs a treat from the comfort of my couch a simple task.Functionality: Overall things re working smoothly. It throws only a few treats at a time, so even if I use it a multiple times per day it will not a calorie burden on my pups. The camera is nice and clear, and boost up quickly. The app design is good with the functionality you need and is pretty intuitive. I expect they will clean up some of the UX density over time.Fun: Really fantastic. I love being able to peak into my home, call out and see my dogs run for the room licking up all of the treats. It brings me and my family many moments of joy during the day.Added Bonus: Even though I thought it would be a device I only use while I’m away, I find myself using it just as much when at home. Dogs bring joy to my family and Petcube is there to record the action. It is set up in our family room and has already captured bunches of moments showing us all enjoying Petcube moments.Nice job Petcube, I’m happy you’re here!

    Addicted to this (me and my dogs)

    I am addicted to this camera! Never have I had so much fun with a camera ever! Tossing treats and talking to my dogs while I am gone at work makes me feel so much less guilty and I know they are safe!The camera was well packaged and had terrific instructions. Quickly found the right spot on the wall to mount it. The app is easy to use and the alerts while a tad overly sensitive, are nice to have so I know when the dogs are on the move.I got a chance to try Alexa and that was really fun too and easy to set up of course!The treats are now on my amazon automatic reorder list so they will never go treatless.Cons: so much drool on the camera you cant see the dogsPros: they love it so much they drool on it

    Easy to Setup and Instant Fun

    We were so excited when our Petcube Bites arrived! The packaging is absolutely beautiful and has a handle making it very easy to carry. Once we arrived home, we were able to set it up within minutes and connect it to our home Wi-Fi using the user-friendly Petcube app.We started playing with the Petcube right away. It is so fun and we are so happy with our purchase. Now we can finally check in and connect with our puppy during the working day and reward his good behavior with yummy treats! Highly recommended for any pet parent.

    Love it!

    Wilbur and I both love our Petcube Bites! It's nice being able to keep tabs on him while I'm at work, and he loves the little treats from time to time. So far I havent decided where to mount it just yet, but it's great on my counter so far. The camera quality is great, and the app made setup a breeze. Id say this a great Christmas present for any pet lover

    Easy set up, fun for dog, great feeling to be able to check on dog!

    Received our Petcube Bites and it's so fun to have! I love being able to check on my dog, Georgia, and she goes crazy over the surprise treats. I chose to put it on our kitchen counter instead of drilling holes in the wall to mount, though that would be ideal as it's tricky to find a way to be at your dog's eye level. Set up was really easy. I'm not totally sure if I'll subscribe to save the history but it's nice to have the option and it's super inexpensive for $10/mo!

    The design of the petcube is nice, sleek

    I have two cats and one dog, which worked perfectly for all three. They now sit patiently in front of the Petcube waiting for treats to spit out. The design of the petcube is nice, sleek, and space efficient. Connecting the petcube on the app is very easy, but for some reason it has issues connecting to the wifi, which is why I had to bump it down to four stars instead of five. Aside from the wifi issues, I love how easy it is to work the app. I would recommend this to all pet lovers!

    Loved watching my pets!!

    Received camera in 2 days. It was in a nice package that had everything laid out. It was easy to follow the directions. I downloaded the petcube app on my iphone and was able to view the room almost immediately.Since I have small cats, I decided to place it on the floor. I received a notification on my iphone when it as activated by a motion and there was a short video. Unfortunately, the unit came with dog treats and I did not have the correct size treats available to try that. However, you can easily order treats from Petcube using the app and they are reasonably priced. I saw on the app, that you can remotely send a treat and select the distance. The video is in color during daylight and it records in the dark in black and white.The audio is also totally cool. The cats were so funny looking at it while hearing my voice. I thought it was also interesting to see the cats roaming around in the middle of the night.I would definitely recommend this. The video is high quality and encompasses the entire room. You can easily record or snap a still shot from your phone. See the photo attached I took of my 3 cats.

    Fun with Alexa!

    The Petcube Bites is so fun! Lenny couldn't wait for us to open it up and fling him some treats. He learned within 2 minutes that the "buzzing sound" means a treat is coming! I especially love that it's integrated with Alexa. It's so fun to tell her to give him a treat when he does a trick. Would recommend!

    Put in the treats and you're good to go

    Just got my new Petcube Bites (available on Prime one day shipping). Took about 3 minutes to set up. Just unbox, plug in, connect, done! Put in the treats and you're good to go! Corgi Joe loves it! The app is intuitive and has a lot of monitoring options. Tossing treats was easy. My friends are already asking to have access to the video feed so they can see Corgi Joe too!

    A window into the secret life of your pet

    I try to take my dog with me wherever I go but that isn't alway possible. When she is home alone I am always curious about what she is doing and if she is frightened or lonely. Well, the Petcube has finally answered my question. With this device I can spy on my little girl when she is home alone and if I don't see her in the field of view of the camera I can switch on the two-way audio and call for her. She is already getting accustomed to hearing the plink of the treat falling into the cannon chamber (can't think of a better name for that) and she gets excited to know a treat is about to fly across the room to her.The motion sensitive camera also makes a nice addition to my home security set up. Bonus!Pros:-Fun way to interact with your pet while you are away. Gives peace of mind if you are gone longer than usual.-Camera quality is pretty good and works well in low light.-App is easy to use.Cons:-The unit is a bit larger than I anticipated. Mostly due to the treat hopper. Makes unobtrusive placement difficult.-The app can be a bit buggy. I have found that restarting it helps.-I have had a few motion alerts come in when I know no one was home. Only think I can figure out is that changes in sunlight triggered it. You can set the sensitivity so that false positives won't happen as often.Overall I am happy with Petcube Bites and my dog certainly seems to be enjoying it which is really the whole point.

    Beautiful & fun spy cam for your pup!

    I purchased the Petcube in carbon black and it’s such a pretty color! It only took two minutes to set up and it was as simple as downloading the app.The only issue I had was that my unit didn’t come with the wellness treat samples, which wasn’t too big of a deal since I didn’t even realize they were supposed to come with it. I contacted a rep from the company, and they were able to send me the sample right away. What great customer service!I do have a tip when dealing with the treat dispenser: don’t swipe all the way up! At least for us, the lowest setting is plenty strong enough to dose out the treat to my pup. Overall, it’s been a super fun spying on my pup during the day - definitely recommend!

    Fun and useful little gadget!

    I ordered my petcube bites in the evening and at 10am next day it was already at my doorstep. I don’t usually care much about the packaging, but this one was truly frustration free – very easy to get out of the box. There were also some treats included which was a nice cute touch!The setup was fast and easy: plug in, select in in the app, enter wi-fi password: voila! Everything was ready to go within a few minutes.The cube makes quite a bit of noise when throwing treats, so the first couple of times my cat was very suspicious of it and would only eat the treats a few minutes after they were distributed. After a few days she got used to it and now runs into the room and waits impatiently when she hears the noise. :)

    The Must Have Pet Product!

    I just received my petcube yesterday and my cats and I love it! It's amazing how in tune they get to treats clinking down. It gives me a much better sense of what's going on when I'm gone from home for more than a day. It's also extremely easy to set up! Thank you Petcube!

    A MUST for pet parents!

    So much fun to check in on the kitties at home while I'm at work or away! Easily connects to the PetCube app, with movement notifications to let you know when your pet is around the camera. You can hear and talk through the PetCube, which is an added bonus... and even incentivize your pet to stick around by clicking the treats button for the PetCube to dispense treats! The dispenser isn't exact, though--sometimes 1 piece will drop, and sometimes 10 pieces will drop. A friend had the idea to put food in there, instead of treats, just in case you get home late or want to watch their diet.Overall love it, and makes the perfect gift for family with pets.

    Absolutely Love!

    I absolutely love my new Petcube Bites! While working all day I can check on my little pup while I'm in the office.I also make sure he's practicing his training! The fling feature on the app is super fun and he has a great time trying to find the treats... this keeps him occupied for a while. The treats that come with the product are great quality and my dog really seems to like them! I would recommend this product for any dog parent that works- so, basically all of us ;).

    Love it!

    I just got my Petcube Bites and I am obsessed! It was very easy to set up and Petcube customer support was extremely responsive when I had an issue, even walked me through the set-up until we knew it was working. It is so easy to check on my dogs and cats when I am away. The image is very clear and the audio worked perfectly, woke my dog up from a deep sleep on the couch! My dogs have already learned to know the sound of the treat dispenser and wait patiently for them to fling out at them. The night vison is a pretty cool feature as well. This is a must have for any pet owner that wants to keep an eye out on their furkids while they are away.

    Great product!

    This Petcube is so cool and my dog loves it! I already have the Petcube camera and I can use watch both views with my phone. The Petcube Bites flings yummy treats to my dog and can fling it pretty far; allowing to play fetch! The packaging was also very neat. Just FYI that the treats that come with the product are inside the Petcube to save some space on packaging- great idea!One thing that I would give 5 stars is if the camera rotates and points up and down. I put my Petcube on a high shelf so that my dog doesn't jump up and potentially breaks it but it just sees straight. I got creative and found a way to tilt it down so I can see my dog. Otherwise, very cool product- would definitely recommend it to my pet parents!

    Purrfect!

    I recently got my Petcube Bites and I am absolutely amazed by this product! What I love about Petcube Bites is that when I am away I can easily check in on my cat and talk to my him. He actually responds to the great audio quality that comes from the Petcube Bites and runs up to the camera. I can then send him out some treats. The 1080p HD video quality is also spectacular giving me a wide angle view of the room during the day and night. Of course I love the fact that I can record his cute moments on the camera which then I am able to save to my camera roll and share to the world how adorable my cat is. I would definitely recommend this product to any pet lover out there!

    I really love watching her being stupid in front of the camera

    I bought this Petcube Bites for my cat. She is so excited to get the treats and she comes every now and then to check if there is some treats. That triggers the notification which I can receive on my phone. I really love watching her being stupid in front of the camera. I only release the treats when she is not around for a long time, but this camera captures such a wide range that my cat is always visible on my phone. I recorded some high quality videos and get what, my Instagram is full of fans. The video loading is a bit too slow, sometime I need to wait for 5 seconds before I can watch a recorded video, I think Petcube should improve the app to make it faster.

    Great product!

    Love love love ! We just recently purchased this product & it's fantastic! We always feel so guilty leaving our pups at home when we are out. 1 of them has some pretty bad separation anxiety & will bark & cry nonstop when we leave. We can now monitor the dogs, talk to them, & even toss them treats (their favorite part). This product has definitely helped us as pet owners. We can now go out with piece of mind & simply monitor what's going on at home. Couldn't recommend more.

    ... pet monitor for over a week and its working better than advertised

    So far we had this pet monitor for over a week and its working better than advertised. We work 10 hours days so having a way to interact and watch our Boston Terrier during the day give us guilt-free piece of mind. Although not technically weatherproof, we setup our unit on our Patio BBQ where it is safe from the elements. It didnt take our Boston Terrier long to figure out when he hears the motor ramp up, its time for a yummy treat (see photo) He is now obsessed with the unit. Even when we bring it inside, he sits by it waiting for a treat. He is very food-driven so Bites made for a good match versus a security monitor.Install is very basic. Download app, pair with wifi and your live. We use regular kibble and have audio and motion alert notifications sent to our phone app via cloud storage.

    Such a fun product! I'm always thinking of how my dog is doing when I'm out or at work. Usually he is sleeping haha but it's so fun to have the ability to check in and throw a treat or two at him. The only thing I wish it had is a screen so he could see my face. Most dogs don't care about that but mine LOVES watching videos and face-timing with me. For most dog owners I think this is a great idea!

    Fun Product!

    I have officially found something fun to do when I'm bored at work! The camera on this product is fantastic - very clear - and it's nice that you get a 30 day free trial of the video cloud. I love that you can fling the treats different distances...those things really launch! Cat treats are pretty small, so expect that you'll probably launch more than one at a time. My cat didn't seem to mind :) I will say I had a few technological issues at first, but they were resolved within a day by the tech team. They were super helpful and I won't hesitate to contact them again if any other issues surface.

    Great for travelers

    Very nice product that uses your WiFi network at home, to provide live video access, from the petcube application. The app can be setup to notify you when motion is detected, and you can watch a short, recording in the application. We use this feature when traveling to make sure our cat is eating, etc. This model allows you to dispense/throw treats on a schedule, and/or on demand via the application. The cat loves it, and we love being able to check on him and give him treats when traveling.

    We are users of the previous version of petcube. I have to admit that this one is even better! The fun added to this version make it a totally different tool. Both a toy and a good watchguard for your buddies. It's also a great toy for the owners. Just went back from two week holidays and it feels like I never leave them.

I also use it as a security cam for my backyard to see if anything weird is happening. This is a great device to just have on hand.It takes a bit of getting used to, but don't be discouraged cause your pet will eventually warm up to spitting treats!

    SOLID, SUPERSTAR AND INNOVATIVE

    We've been Petcube fans since it first launched its product. This bites camera is the most innovative so far. It's a creative tool to be more involved with your pet even though you're away. Normally, playing with laser alone makes my cat bored if done for longer time. But this bite cube is keeping my cats obsessed. Any kind of treat excites pet anyway. We can see what our cat is doing from the app plus socialize with her. Amazing what technology can do. I've recommended this to my co-workers and friends and they're into it as well.
