Pawbo Life Pet Camera parts

Treat Dispenser

One of the greatest features that the Pawbo life Camera offers is that it allows you to dispense treats to your pet while away from home. Combined with the two-way audio system, it can be a great way to keep your pet calm while you are away, reducing the risk that it will get into mischief. It’s also nice to interact with your pet while you are away, and they often get as excited as they do when you finally get home.

Laser Game

The laser game is another great feature offered by the Pawbo. If you have a cat, this feature will help your cat get some exercise. Dogs may chase it as well, but cats really enjoy it and will often spend quite a while chasing the laser light around the room. The Pawbo allows you to control the laser from your smartphone, or you can set it to automatic, so it will keep them entertained until you get home.

Beginner Camera

The only thing we didn’t like was that several other brands have improved features. The video is nice, but it’s only 720p when several other brands offer a much better quality 1080p. We also found that the audio tended to have plenty of echoes no matter where we placed it in the room. The treat dispenser also frequently would stick and fail to dispense the treats.
