As you will see in this Petcube review this pet camera has lots to offer to pet owners. This petcam comes with video features so you can watch your pet from your smartphone. The Petcube microphone and speaker enable you to talk to your dog or cat and interact.
But the novelty about the Petcube camera is that you can be interactive with your pet from your smartphone through the controllable laser pointer. The laser pointer is built in the Petcube and a unique toy which lets you play with your pet from a distance. But also your friends and family – or whoever you share access to your Petcube camera – can also play with your pet from a distance! They don’t need a dog camera or cat cam – just installing the Petcube app on their smartphone and being granted access lets them play with your pet. In this way, several pet owners can share access and ‘take care’ of each other’s pets now and then when the owner doesn’t have time. The Petcube cam was backed by Kickstarter!

The Petcube pet camera compared with other pet cameras
The Petcube is in a way similar to other pet cameras but has its differences too. What makes the Petcube dog and cat cam distinctive is its integrated laser pointer. This is a unique feature for pet cameras that I haven’t seen with similar pet cams. The laser pointer enables you to play with your dog or cat from your smartphone. It gets him active and gives him a break when he is alone for a whole long day. The Petzi Treat Cam and the PetChatz pet camera do not have a laser pointer. So if you want to be able to play with your pet from your smartphone then the Petcube cam is your best choice!
What the Petzi Treat petcam makes it different from the Petcube is that it is a pet camera treat dispenser. This means you can dispense your pet’s favorite treat with the Petzi Treat Launcher and make your dog or cat smile. The PetChatz is another pet camera with treat dispenser and this one also has a screen so not only your can see your pet but he can also see you!
What I like a lot about the Petcube pet cam
The Petcube pet cam looks fantastic: a stylish black box that fits in any interior! It offers HD video and still images so you see your dog or cat clear. The most distinctive feature of the Petcube is its laser pointer. This enables you to play with your dog or cat, wherever you are. You can grand family and friends access to they can also play with your friends through the Petcube petcam and make them go wild with the laser pointer!
What I like less about the Petcube petcam
The Petcube petcam has lost on offer. What it doesn’t have is night vision. So if you want to communicate with your pet at night, you won’t be able to see your pet. Unless you have the lights switched on of course!
Roundup for the Petcube dog camera / cat cam
The Petcube petcam is a great device to stay in touch with your pet when you’re out. If offers video communication and laser plays, and your friends and family members can all take part if they so like.
