So we are all familiar with baby monitors that allow us to check up on our little ones whenever we want, but what about being able to check in on our furry canine members of the family? The Dog Monitor app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to check in on your dog whenever you like. This app works remotely so no matter where you are you can take a look. What's cool is that not only can you see/hear what the dog is up to but you can also speak to your dog which can help it calm down while you’re not home.
It doesn't matter if you have just brought home a new puppy or you have an older family dog in the house, because this app can be plenty useful and pretty fun to use. If you've ever wondered what he or she gets into while you're away here's your chance to answer that question. The way it works is that you will be able to take two iOS devices and then transform them into a dog monitor filled with tools and features. You don't have to worry about setting up the connections properly, dealing with cords and wires, and there's no need to sign up for an account.
The app has just gone through an update to ensure smooth performance thanks to a bug fix. It scores very high with customers who have given it 4.5 out of five stars. It seems like people can’t get enough of this tool.
Check in on your dog anytime
Monitoring Your Pup
So when it comes to the actual monitoring part of the Dog Monitor app you will need to have an Internet connection for both iOS devices for the live video. Still pictures and audio can be sent without any WiFi connection; instead, it uses your cellular connection. So what can you expect from this app? Each time your dog barks you will get an alert, but don't worry, it's very discreet so even if you're in the middle of a conference it won't be notifying anyone but you. The connection is always secure because it is protected by encrypted SSL. Now if in case something happens with your connection where it is broken you will also be alerted discreetly.
So we've established that you can view and listen to your dog but it also works in reverse in that you can talk to your dog. Perhaps you want to tell it to stop barking, go lie down, stop chewing on the kids' toys, just to say, or anything else.
