My cats used to spend much of their days home alone because of our family’s work schedules. I spent 40 or more hours a week at a job outside my home and had a 40-minute commute each way. My husband, a freelance photographer, was often on the road most of the day—and sometimes into the evening. While I was happy that they had each other for companionship while we were gone, I still worried about my kitties. Were they getting along? Were they getting into trouble? How were they spending those hours between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day?
Now a self-employed writer, I have the privilege of spending the day in my home office—and I’m generally surrounded by my cats. I no longer worry about them because I have a front row seat for all of their naps, their squabbles and their antics. We’re together all the time.
Unfortunately, not everyone can work from home. But if your job requires you to spend hours at an office and away from your pets, you can still keep tabs on their activities remotely. All you need is the automatic motion-tracking home security camera developed by Maspro.
For a retail price of $450, pet parents can check up on their dogs and cats from their smartphones or personal computers. The system uses a 110-degree wide angle lens and tracking system with digital zoom to monitor moving objects like pets, kids and seniors along with ambient sound and room temperature—meaning you’ll never again have to wonder what Fido and Fluffy (or grandma, for that matter) get up to while you’re gone.
