Pawbo is a pet camera and a treat dispenser. It features two-way audio for you to hear and talk with your pets when you’re away. It streams one way video in 720p and dispenses treats with just a tap on your phone. Additionally, Pawbo features an interactive laser function where it keeps your pets entertained while giving them good exercise. The laser jumps around the room while your pet chases it.

Features

Pawbo features a decent streaming quality with a capability to directly download to your dropbox. It also features several sound effects you can enable in order to entertain your pet. Pawbo’s setup is relatively simple and its treat dispenser is one of its main attractions. It currently costs around $200.

Product Comparisons

Many of Pawbo’s competitors stream video at a higher quality which definitely gives them a competitive edge. However, these similar products therefore costs a $100 or so more. One of Pawbo’s direct competitors, PetCube (which is also at a similar price point) lacks the ability to dispense treats. One thing that the PetCube has over the Pawbo is that it does stream at a higher quality — 1080P.

Customer Reviews

Several customers were disappointed in the lacking audio and video quality. Some people also said many times the connectivity between the app and device were often lost, and many were annoyed by the exact specifications the treats needed to satisfy in order to be dispensed. On the other hand, others were also pleased with the product and thought that it was a great buy — especially for such a reasonable price.

The Bottom Line

I would rate this product 3/5 stars, mainly because it lacks high quality audio and video, which several customers have complained about. There does tend to be video lag with this product as well. Despite these drawbacks though, for its reasonable price it may still be a great buy. Its feature list is certainly impressive, with its treat dispenser, laser toy and streaming video and two-way audio. Many of its competitors who have a similar price point do not have one or more of these features. Its modern look is also a plus!
