What customers say about "Key Specs"
Pawbo PPC-21CL
  • The camera is a little low resolution but it works for what we need. My pup loves the treat dispenser but doesn't understand the laser pointer.
  • Great camera resolution - can see everything very clearly, even in low light
  • I did a lot of research before purchasing this product and was nervous about getting it connected to my wifi, but I got the Pawbo connected with no problems in less than 5 minutes! My kitties and I love it.
  • I was ecstatic on how easy it was to set up, the clarity of the footage, easy to use main functions, and that it connects almost every time. You can't put a price on piece of mind. I'm very grateful to the inventor of this.
  • The camera resolution is also not that great with poor lighting. The laser was a great idea but works slowly.
Petcube Play Pet Camera with Interactive Laser Toy
  • The image quality and wide angle coverage is one of the best I've seen, and I've been through two other cameras that are either really bad low quality resolution or the wifi connection drops
  • The wide angle camera really makes it easy to see the entire room, with high enough resolution to make everything out.
  • The thing also seems to lose connection or just have general streaming problems a decent amount. I have gigabit internet, so it shouldn't be my connection's issue.
  • The setup process was easy, although you have to be patient with the WiFi connection step, mine took closer to 5 minutes instead of one as the user manual suggests . Once it connected however everything was a smooth sail.
  • The resolution is just OK with such a wide angle. You can't really see anything in detail unless you get close to the camera.

What customers say about "Features"
Pawbo PPC-21CL
  • I passed my phone around and they all played with the laser and dropped treats for them. My husband and Mom easily logged in using the QR code. The QR code has to be scanned so make sure to email it or text it to someone near them so it can be scanned off of the second device.
  • This worked great I was up and running in less than 10 minutes! Loses quality when you zoom in, but it’s fine. Laser toy is fun too.
  • Every time I open my app, my dog can hear a doorbell sound and she gets so excited to play with the laser. With this product, you can control the laser, zoom in and out on the camera, speak and hear both ways, treat dispenser, make bird sounds.
  • The picture quality is great (better than Petzi), but the laser game is very hard to try to use, and the treats basically dribble out the chute.
  • The laser was a great idea but works slowly. In order to set the camera to the correct angle from a table, I have to use the stryofoam insert that came with the box.
Petcube Play Pet Camera with Interactive Laser Toy
  • This thing is awesome! Sometimes when I'm bored at work I would wake up the cats from their 23 hour nap schedule. LOL They go crazy for the laser. You can even talk to them.
  • The night vision is a huge plus. The night-vision immediately kicks in when the lights get too low in the room. It works even when all the lights in the house are out. The night vision image is in grey-scale and looks just as clean and sharp as the color video.
  • One HUGE benefit to this camera is its night vision capabilities... the photos/videos are still really clear, which is great as my kittens are quite nocturnal!
  • Laser pointer is jumpy and lags, plus the dogs aren't interested in it so won't be using this.
  • It's a great idea and i love being able to check in on the pets BUT the laser is impossible. It just doesn't work.
