Our lightning-fast smartphone cameras let us hold onto the moments that matter with the touch of a button. Not that long ago, however, taking just one photo meant getting out a bulky camera, making sure the lighting was “okay” and that a usable roll of film you'd have to develop was inside. These days, we're photo-historians who officially said "Goodbye!" to missed opportunities of capturing life as it happens.
Shouldn't we be able to do the same for our pets when we're not around? For this year and the last, The Humane Society of the United States estimates that around 65% of American households have at least one pet. That's 163.6 million unsupervised "children." What can you do? Short of installing CCTV, Manhattan has the answer with the PetCam HD (551502). We offer confidence and reliability you can tap into essentially anywhere with your mobile device and our free app. Setting up the camera is a breeze, and once you pair it with your smartphone, tablet or PC, pan, tilt and zoom functions let you see what you need to.
Being away from your pets can cause them a lot of stress. See and make sure your little monster is okay with the built-in, two-way mic and speaker. They hear your voice in real-time with excellent clarity, so they won’t be in a panic thinking you're never coming back or shredding toilet paper and pillows in your absence. A microSD slot records video you can watch later in crystal-clear 720-pixel resolution. (Now you can find out who spread the trash all around the house!) It’s equipped with infrared lighting that offers excellent night-vision, for when you get home late and want to see your pets waiting by the door. It’s a “win” for you as much as it is for them—seeing and hearing your little, immediate family members throughout the day makes you a little happier and upbeat, too.
At Manhattan, we are always on the lookout for ways to keep you in better touch with your world and the very important people (human or otherwise) in it. Life just gets easier with Manhattan—let us help you get the connection you’ve been looking for.
