Best Overall

You don't have to worry about what your pets are up to with the Petcube Cam. With HD video and 30-foot night vision, you'll always be able to keep an eye on your pets. But what makes this camera unique is its built-in vet chat feature that allows you to consult with a professional if you notice any strange pet behavior. On top of the chat, you can get sound and motion alerts and have the entire system set up within 60 seconds.


Best Budget

Monitor your home and your pets with the Blink Mini, an indoor smart security camera that's less than $20. This plug-in security camera offers motion alerts and night vision, and has a two-way audio feature so you can verbally check in on your pet, too.

Best With Treat Dispenser

Giving your pet a treat has never been easier than with the Furbo pet camera. Fill the device with your pet's favorite treat and let it launch through the Furbo app. With Livestream video and a 160-degree wide-angle lens, you can watch your pet live its life and enjoy a snack now and then. It also has two-way audio and has a barking alert that sends push notifications to your smartphone. It's technically designed for dogs, but can totally be used for cats, too.


Best for Cats

Stay connected with your pet 24/7 with the wireless Petcube Play 2 Pet Camera. It has two-way audio so you can hear and talk to your pet, a built-in Alexa assistant, 1080p HD video, and night vision. This pick is especially great for cat owners since it has a pet-safe laser toy that can be controlled on your phone or set to autoplay whenever your cat takes a break from napping or using their favorite cat scratcher.

Best Interactive

Take your pet monitoring on the go with this smart pet camera that allows you to manually drive it throughout your home through an app. With a battery life of 10 hours for continuous use, this option has 1080p HD video with a wide-angle view and night vision, along with a laser toy, treat-tossing feature, and two-way audio.
