5 Pet Cameras for Loving Pet Parents

Do you ever wonder what your pets are doing when you leave the house? Sick of coming home to a destroyed house? Or maybe you’re just looking to interact with your dog or cat while you’re out. Pet cameras let you watch, and even interact, with your pet while you’re away from your apartment. Pet parents have multiple options for monitoring systems and cameras. Read our list of the top 5 pet cameras for 2016!


The PetChatz HD Pet Cam really stepped up the game with unique features which are well executed. The treat dispenser works great and the treats that come with the camera are high quality and all natural. Setup is a little more involved compared to other pet cams on the market, however this is the only one on the market with both a treat dispenser AND two-way video. The video quality on the new PetChatz HD is excellent. If you’re looking for a fun and practical way to interact with your pet while away from the house, the PetChatz HD Pet Camera should be one of your top choices.

Petzi Treat Cam

The Petzi Treat Cam is a great interactive pet camera and treat dispenser combo. Not only does Petzi outperform most other treat cameras on the market, but it wins in price as well. Setup and installation is a breeze, and the Petzi smartphone app works incredible.

Pet Cube

Petcube impressed us with a truly innovative pet camera that both looks and performs great. The small box design doesn’t take up much space on the shelf, and the camera and microphone quality are solid. While Petcube does not have a treat dispenser like most others on our list of top pet cams, it does have an interactive laser pointer game.

iFamCare Helmet

Sophisticated and simple, innovative and functional. The iFamCare Helmet camera hits a homerun. Conveniently named Helmet, this security and pet monitoring camera rocks impressive video quality and unique features – most notably the laser pointer and air quality sensor.

Nest Cam

Named the best pet camera back in 2015, the Nest Cam remains in the top 5 for its impressive video quality and ease of use. The Nest Cam features 1080p HD live streaming  It also features incredible night vision that can see an entire room!  For those folks that have experience with the Nest thermostat– you know how easy setup is- and the Cam is no different. Plus, the Nest Cam syncs with other nest products!
