Ever wondered what your pets get up to when you're at work or out shopping? This is where pet cameras come in. They make checking up on your furry friends a breeze and ensure they're alright wherever you are. We've rounded up a list of the best pet cameras that can give you peace of mind.
#1 Best Overall: Petcube Bites 2 Lite
Petcube Bites 2 Lite
The Petcube Bites 2 Lite checks all the boxes. Not only do you get high-quality video and two-way audio, but there's also a night vision mode and a treat dispenser, all of which can be controlled using your smartphone. It is also the budget-friendly option of Petcube's top-of-the-line, Petcube Bites 2, meaning you get all the great features at a fraction of the price.
Design-wise, the Petcube Bites 2 Lite is a tall dispenser with the top half consisting of the treat dispenser featuring interchangeable ducts to cater to different-sized treats whereas the bottom half has the camera, speaker grille, and microphone and treat dispenser door. The Petcube Bites 2 Lite is powered by the 6.5-foot USB cable and power adapter which come included with purchase. It's recommended to wall mount this camera to prevent pets from knocking it over.
Petcube Bites 2 Lite
The Petcube Bites 2 Lite has a 160-degree lens, 1080p resolution and a handy pinch-to-zoom 4x digital zoom. Wherever you place the pet camera, you'll have a clear and wide view of the room you're watching with a tap on the smartphone app. It also has a built-in night vision which presents a monochrome view of what's going on at home. What's great is the automatic detection feature which triggers video recording when movement or sound is picked up.
Thanks to the built-in speaker and microphone, the Petcube Bites 2 Lite allows you to communicate with your pet if you're not there. While the camera doesn't have a laser pointer for your pets, the Petcube Bites 2 Lite has a fun treat-dispensing function to make up for it. Instead of dispensing a treat, the camera flings the treat a few feet away, a great method to keep your furry friends engaged. Although subscribing to Petcube Care grants you access to video history and unlimited video downloads, on its own, the device has four hours' worth of storage of activity and video clips space in the cloud.
#2 Best for Cat Owners: Petcube Play 2
A fun way to keep an eye out for especially cats, the Petcube Play 2 has a built-in laser.
Rather than a pet camera, reviewers remarked that the Petcube Play 2 looks more like a projector. Once you've placed it on the floor or wall-mount it in your preferred area, plugin through USB-C and you're good to go.
Coming with full HD support and a wide-angle 160-degree lens, the Petcube Play 2 lets you see more of your home. However, in night vision mode, images appear softer even though there are enough details to make up your view. The Petcube Play 2 also has a four-microphone array to converse with your pets.
The Petcube Play 2 has an interactive laser which entices both owners and cats alike. Plus, this laser can be automated to start so your pets will be entertained while you're away. Keep in mind that the laser doesn't move smoothly but this doesn't seem to bother a critic's cat. One gripe a reviewer had is that the laser doesn't work as well in areas where there is a lot of natural light. Though the Petcube Play 2 lets you view the camera's feed and plays an alert whenever people or pets are being watched, purchasing a subscription has bonuses like notifications, video clips, video downloads and clips that save automatically.

#3 Best Dog Owners: Furbo Dog Camera
Other than a two-way audio and HD video capability, the Furbo Dog Camera enables you to toss treats to your dog and even reinforce obedience training.
Consisting of a wide enough base and a secure lid that covers the treat storage compartment, the Furbo feels sturdy and well-made. It comes with a USB cable which reviewers praised because of its convenience to plug in wherever you want. As the camera is positioned towards the top, you get a wide field of view covering most of the room and superior picture quality. Thanks to automatic infrared light, the Furbo Dog Camera gives you clear night vision. It also has a microphone to get your dog's attention.
The Furbo Dog Camera stands out as it has a clicker sound to reinforce training. Another cool feature is within the app, Furbo includes instructions to guide owners on how to get their pets used to the treat dispenser. Along with customising the sound of the dispenser to your voice, you're also actively involved in the treat tossing process by sliding your finger on an image on the live streaming view.
The colour changing indicator light comes in useful. Thoughtfully designed, Furbo uses a blue light (means interactive mode is activated) and yellow light (means sleep mode is activated), colours which dogs can see. Over time, your dog may learn that the blue light indicates you're there. Not forgetting a Barking Alert function which sends a notification to your smartphone when it detects your dog barking.

#4 Best for Budget: Wyze Cam v3
Offering a wealth of features, the Wyze Cam v3 is an alternative if you're strapped for cash.
The Wyze Cam v3 is a simple white cube with rounded camera edges. On the bottom, the Cam v3 has a telescoping mount so you can adjust it to the orientation you prefer. You can either screw it into a ceiling or wall but Wyze includes a magnetic plate and adhesive with your purchase if decide against any sort of permanent installation. After plugging the Wyze Cam 3 into an outlet with the USB power cable, it's ready to start.
This pet camera is feature-rich. Firstly, it has full HD daylight footage. Where the Wyze Cam 3 shines is the colour night vision, made possible by the Starlight sensor. The 130-degree field of view is another impressive feature. Additionally, the Cam 3 is great at recognising movements even at the lowest setting so you can rest assured that it detects your pet. With the Wyze Cam 3, it emits an 80 dB siren and a loud and clear two-way audio.
For video storage, inserting a microSD card into the Cam 3 enables local storage. However, subscribing to the Wyze Cam Plus gives you unlimited length of videos and a no-cool down period between clips. Other bonus features include person, package, vehicle, pet and face detection.

#5 Best Dual Purpose: Nest Cam IQ
The Nest Cam IQ works both for watching your pets and guarding your home.
The most reassuring thing about the Nest Cam IQ is its material. With a white polycarbonate exterior, the Nest Cam IQ feels well-built. The camera is powered by mains via a 3m USB A to USB C, providing mounting flexibility.
Once you've had the Nest app set up, you can view footage in full high definition resolution while also getting a 130-degree view of the room in real-time. A 12x digital zoom facility lets you focus on parts of the screen via a smartphone. The Nest Cam IQ comes with a night vision mode and two-way audio.
We liked that the Nest Cam IQ has been intelligently designed to differentiate between people and animals, doubling up as a pet and indoor security camera. Most notable are the additional features for which you need a Nest Aware subscription. For a monthly fee, you get the ability to save and share these clips, receive alerts when motion is detected and have notifications sent to you whenever the camera detects a face.
