Introducing Furbo Dog Nanny - Furbo Dog Camera’s New Service to Keep Dogs Safe at Home

September 18, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--When Kerry checked in on her mixed spaniel, Harvey, from work through her Furbo Dog Camera, she could tell something was wrong. Harvey was not acting like himself. “I rushed home and thank goodness I did; we went straight to the vet and he had to have surgery to remove a piece of bone which was obstructing his lower intestine,” Kerry explained.

Furbo Dog Camera has enabled hundreds of thousands of dog parents to catch a variety of dangerous and potentially life-threatening situations, from house fires, to burglaries, to the consumption of toxic chocolate. With the new feature released today - Furbo Dog Nanny alerts dog parents of emergencies and keeps their dog safe at home.

“Like most dog parents, my biggest worry is leaving my dog at home alone,” said Victor Chang, CEO of Furbo. “We created Furbo Dog Camera to see, talk and toss treats to our fur babies from afar. And now, Furbo Dog Nanny can help watch over our dogs and keep them safe at home.”

Furbo Dog Nanny is a premium dog monitoring service that alerts dog owners to potential dangers in real-time. Notifications such as Dog Activity Alert, Person Alert, and Dog Selfie Alert allows dog parents to know exactly what is happening at home. Each alert is coupled with automatic cloud-recording. If users are not able to check-in, in real-time, they can go back to see what triggered strange behavior with short, event-specific video clips.

In addition to preventing potentially dangerous situations, Furbo Dog Nanny captures moments of joy throughout the day. From play time, to mischief, to visits from the dog walker, Furbo Dog Nanny documents it all. At the end of day, Furbo Dog Nanny compiles a “ Doggie Diary,” a fun, 60-second timelapse of highlights from the day - for easy review.

Unlike general home monitors, Furbo is specialized for dogs. A first for a smart home camera, Furbo uses AI technology and computer vision to detect dog-specific events happening at home. From intelligently learning notification preferences to understanding dog behaviors, Furbo Dog Nanny will continue to get smarter and give users more personalized information about their dogs.

Furbo Dog Nanny, including 24/7 alerts, cloud-recording, and Doggie Diary, is available to all customers free of charge for a 90 day trial. Pricing for Furbo Dog Nanny will be determined in consultation with customers during the 90 day trial. To learn more and to purchase a Furbo Dog Camera, visit www.furbo.com.
