Totally worth it!

We have had our pet cube for a month now and I really want people out there with indoor pets to know what a game changer this thing is!
Originally we got this so that we can check on our cat while away traveling.
It is nice because you have the ability to check in on your pet at anytime of the day, which in itself is worth the cost of entry, bet there is so much more! Pet Cube has an app for Android and iPhones so you can log on and see your cat in realtime. On top of that they have a laser pointer inside the cube so you can actually play with your animal when you’re away from your home. Our cat loves to play with us when we use the laser pointer so this was really fortunate and an easy connection to make. He enjoys playing with it so much that we use the petcube sometimes even when we're at home. It's so cute to see his reaction and hear him meowing at the laser! He seems so stimulated by it, we think it helps him not be so bored when at home alone, and being an appartment car, it keep him active!
The app can also be downloaded by your friends and family so they can also view and entertain your pet. You can set times to “unlock” the cube at your convenience so you won’t necessarily have them viewing your pet when you are at home.

Even More Useful Than Expected
Posted by: hfluffin from: on
I originally purchased this to be able to keep an eye on my 9 year old boxer, Penny, who recently began having seizures. In the month that we've owned our Petcube, it has truly benefited all of our pets!
Setup of the camera and the app is simple and intuitive, and only took a few moments.
The Camera quality isn't HD or anything, but it's good. It is more than suitable to keep an eye on your pet.
The sound quality takes a little bit of time to master. You need to speak slowly and softly, at normal indoor levels. As long as you have a decent mic on your phone (we have Galaxy Note Edges), the Petcube speaker will do a fine job of relaying your voice. If you shout into your phone or speak too quickly, your voice becomes hard to understand from the Petcube. There is only a slight lag from phone to petcube, which is to be expected when connecting remotely.
The laser is fun for both humans and pets. We have tons of fun with this! The laser is easy to control with your finger, via the app. You simply move your finger over the video feed, and the laser moves with it. Again, there is a small delay, but it's to be expected.
While our intention in purchasing the Petcube was to keep an eye on our older dog, we quickly found that our younger pup, a 3 year old pit named Loki, has separation anxiety. We would have never known without the Petcube! He cries after we leave. The laser helped alleviate this, as did occasionally telling him "Hello", and that he is a good boy.
We also have a cat, Ella, who practically lives in our oldest daughter's room. When our daughter goes to visit family in Florida a few times a year, the cat is usually inconsolable, and cries incessantly for her missing roommate. Over Spring Break, we set up the Petcube in my daughter's room. She played with the cat a minimum of once a day (using the laser), and it was the first time ever that Ella wasn't upset while Emily was away.
This thing is amazing, and you will not regret purchasing it. I have been and will continue to recommend it to all of my pet-loving friends.

When I bought this product, the first thing my husband asked what was the difference between a regular CCTV vs this pet camera. When we started to explore pet cube, that's when we were beyond amazed what it can do. It's competitive advance is its pet interactive feature. From our app, we can be able to see what our cat's up to and we can actually play with her through laser. We already have a manual laser where we used to play with our cat. But with pet cube, laser game can be done from the app. And its because things are linked through the app, it makes it much easier. Also, there's a social feature into it because we have an option to let other people play with our cat through pet cube. This product is very useful for us especially when we travel because we would like to know how's our pet-- for our peace of mind. We started recommending this to our friends. It's very practical and serve our needs.

The best thing I've ever bought for me and my cat!
My cat lives with my parents and I miss him a lot. And Petcube is the best way to see him and play with him more often.
Also, it took only under 10 minutes to connect everything and install the application. After installing the app I was fascinated by playing with other pets :)

Just received this petcube a few days ago and I LOVE it! I can easily play and check up on my kitty on the go. You even get a view into what your cat does while you are gone!! Really cool product, feels like I should've had one for years!

I told my husband that I was getting one and he wasn't thrilled at first. We've now had it for a few days and he is obsessed with it. It was easy to hook up to my Samsung and his Apple. The quality of picture is very clear. We are just having so much fun watching our Harry! It's king of like Facebook for pet.

Such a cool new gadget
Posted by: GadgetFan from: on
The Petcube was super easy to setup and I really like the clean design. The app works great and I like I can now check on my cat while at work or even traveling. Being able to interact with them via the laser and the sound option is really cool too. If you love cool new gadgets and have a pet you'd like to keep an eye on during the day, this is a great option.

Stopped connecting after having it for 6 months
Posted by: volleyplay from: Laguna Niguel on
The Petcube was just okay. I have had connection issues all along and error messages a lot with this one. I have a friend who has one to with the same issues so I think it is known problem. Well today, it just stopped connecting and I have reset everything from re-installing the app to my phone to resetting the petcube. Still will not connect. Have contacted support and have not heard anything as of yet. I believe there are better systems out there that are more reliable than the Petcube.

Novelty Item with some glaring issues
Posted by: roviot from: on
I know it dan be considered a silly product, but i thought it's be nice while on business trips. The bad thing is that it ships with old firmware that seems to ge a gassle to update, so far. thinking of returning if firmware remains deprecated, as it disconnects from the network often and new features aren't available.

I love this product. It is super nice to be able to watch my dog remotely. It is also very easy to set up and use. Their support team is also wonderful if you need help during set-up.
