FURBO – always be together… (advertisement/ product test)
Let’s be honest – we all love our dogs, but from time to time we have to leave them alone at home. May it be for work, groceries shopping or an evening out with friends, we all know that nagging feeling of worry. Is my dog okay? Is my dog crying? Is my dog destroying the flat? Is my dog safe?
I for my part was always worried when we have to leave Sancho and Luigi at home 3-4 times a week for a few hours. That’s why I was super excited when Karkalis Communication offered me a cooperation for the new FURBO Dog Camera.
So, a few weeks ago FURBO moved in with us and I was curious to test if it would be of help. This post will inform you about the functions of the camera and how we used them in different situations.
How does the FURBO Dog Camera work?
The FURBO has a very nice modern design, that fits in everywhere. It works with a cable you have to put into the power grid. A smartphone is mandatory as well as an internet connection in your house or flat. You install the FURBO app and fill out some data like your internet password and your dog’s profile and voila: now you can stalk your dog 24/7.
What you can do with the FURBO?
The dog camera has wide-angle lens, so you can see a huge part of your filmed room. You can also see in the dark, because FURBO can do a really great infrared.
You can decide if you want to activate the bark alarm meaning whenever your dog is barking you get a notification to your smartphone asking if you want to check in on your dog.
The FURBO has an empty place inside that can be filled with dog treats. If your dog is behaving well, you can tap a button in the app saying „Throw treat“. The FURBO is making a sound first to prepare your dog that something is about to happen. Then the FURBO throws the treat for your dog.
There’s also a microphone included, so you can speak with your dog at home even when you’re at work or a million miles apart.
You can film the live-stream for short 1-minute sequences – may it be for training purposes or just for fun.
After using the FURBO Dog Camera for several weeks now, I wouldn’t want to miss it anymore. When I leave the house I activate FURBO and whenever I feel the need to check on Sancho and Luigi I open the app and in just seconds I can see what they’re up to: which in their case is sleeping most of the times. I feel better and less worried not just assuming they’re safe but knowing they’re safe.
I also like the bark alarm. This way I kow exactly when the mail man is ringing the bell.
There are also two functions which I don’t use: I don’t speak with Sancho and Luigi via the microphone and I don’t throw treats when they’re alone at home. Just concerning their characters and behavior I don’t think it would be of help. I think it would only cause confusion for them. I do use the „Throw treat“ function when I’m with the boys though, for training purposes.
Another highlight is the possibility to film. In our case ‘ve never heard Sancho howl. Only Luigi howls from time to time when he hears a siren outside. So last week I was at lunch break at work when the FURBO app sent me a notification that my dogs are „barking“ and if I want to check in on them. I opened the app and there they were… sitting on the bed howling like little wolves, both of them, together. I filmed it and could show it to my family later.
So YES, we recommend the FURBO dog camera!
