High-end pet cameras have full 1080p resolution, send alerts to your phone, host lasers to entertain cats, have the ability to spew a treat at the push of a button and more. If you’re going high-end, you might as well invest in one with night vision, too, so you can see your pet even when it’s dark.

Even with economical models, you’re still going to want a high-quality video feed. Many pet cameras also have apps, allowing you to whip out your phone and instantly, from anywhere, get a live feed of beloved animal companion(s).

These devices don’t have to be solely for pets. They are, after all, web-connected cameras. That means you can use them as security cameras, baby monitors or even set them up to watch the progress of your garden grow. With only a single cord for power, pet cams are extremely easy to move around and relocate as your needs change.
