Independent developer Martin Man today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Pet Monitor 1.0, his pet monitoring solution for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Anyone can setup an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch at home to act as a camera, and easily monitor their pet’s actions and well-being from their iPhone, no matter where they are.
Pet Monitor is a breeze to setup. Simply purchase and install the app on one iOS device, and then install it on the second device. (The second installation is free.) Then, plug the iOS device you’ll keep at home into power, run the app, and point the camera at the area you wish to monitor. The device will monitor the area for noise and motion. Then, run the app on the second iOS device, such as an iPhone that’s carried during the day, and that device will receive notifications when the home iOS device detects motion or noise.
When a notification is received, the user simply taps it, and will be taken automatically to a live video stream, where the pet can be monitored. Using FaceTime-like video and audio, the owner can even talk to the pet and calm it if needed, reassuring their pets when they are upset or lonely.
“My original app, Cloud Baby Monitor, is one of the top baby monitors on the App Store,” says developer Martin Man. “I learned that many customers were using Cloud Baby Monitor to monitor and better take care of their pets. That’s when I came up with the Pet Monitor app, which includes features that are specifically tailored for pet owners.”
When pet owners leave home, dogs can undergo separation anxiety, leading them to bark, and act out, sometimes damaging the owner’s property. This leaves the owner with no way of understanding when and why it happens. Pet Monitor allows owners to monitor their pet and its behavior, either at their leisure, or when notified of activity.
* Activity Alerts
* 2-way audio and video allow users to talk to and reassure pets
* Continue training, even from remote locations
* Snap photos, and share them via popular social networks
* Activity log
* High quality live video and sensitive audio make it easy to monitor pets
* Monitor your pets from anywhere
* Supports Family Sharing
* Secure, reliable and easy to use
Pet Monitor can be installed on up to 10 devices using the same Apple ID used for purchasing the app. It can also be installed for free on the device of up to 6 Family Sharing members. This makes the app perfect for use by the whole family, allowing everyone to take turns monitoring and reassuring Fido when he’s feeling lonely. Plus, multiple users can view the live video from the iOS device at home, so they don’t have to take turns when they all want to take a peek at the family pet.
In addition to monitoring the canine companions, Pet Monitor users can also capture photos from the live video stream and share them with friends and family directly from the app to popular social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and more. All photos and alerts are stored in a convenient activity log, making it easy to view and share them at a later time.
“Pet Monitor is an especially valuable tool for owners of new puppies. The app allows them to keep track of their new friend, reassuring them when needed,” continues Martin. “New pups can be destructive when upset or lonely. By keeping an eye on their new pet and intervening when needed, pet owners can make pet training much easier, possibly preventing damage to their furniture or other property that often can be caused by an upset pet.”
Pet Monitor 1.0 is only $4.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. Review codes are available upon request.
