Pawbo Announces General Availability of New Wireless Interactive Pet Camera with Pawbo Life App

Like a Baby Monitor for Fur Babies, Pawbo+ Keeps Pets and Pet Parents Connected and Content While at Work, at Play, or On the Road; Now No Cat or Dog Will Feel 'Home Alone' This Holiday Season

TAIPEI, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2016) - Pawbo, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Acer, today announced the general availability of its new Pawbo+ interactive wireless pet camera with treat dispensing and laser pointing capabilities.

As the holidays draw near, Pawbo+ is the perfect gift for pet lovers and an ideal solution to keep pet owners stay connected to their pets while travelling this holiday season.

Pawbo Life App Enables Remote Control and Social Sharing

Also now available for free download on Google Play and the App Store is the companion Pawbo Life app for Android and Apple iOS devices. The innovative app enables users to interact with their pets and up to eight concurrent Pawbo+ users via live video streaming, and share photos and videos easily on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The device can also be integrated with Dropbox and Google Drive so users can save their precious videos in the cloud easily.

Using Pawbo accessories controlled remotely through the app, pet owners can build a "pet theme park" with various games and toys that can be activated throughout the day to entertain pets and prevent boredom. Owners can remotely administer treats stored in Pawbo+'s built-in storage tray. Use of multiple ringtone notifications and treats helps train pets to respond and rewards pets' good behavior. Pawbo+ has an integrated laser pointer that can be remotely activated to interact with pets and keep them active.

The End of Pet Anxiety

Pawbo+ is ideal for pet owners that must leave their cats or dogs at home alone throughout the day. Experts say pets left alone for long durations can become lonely, and may also be at risk for developing depression and separation anxiety, sometimes resulting in destructive behaviors.

Ideal for cats and small dogs, Pawbo+'s internet-enabled wide-angle camera (130-degrees) and speaker/microphone combo let users check in on their pets and talk to them to calm and assure them from afar. This daily interaction can help to reduce anxiety of pets and pet owners alike.

With privacy in mind, the camera is designed to point slightly downward so that it only captures what pets are doing, while all communication is encrypted for added peace-of-mind.

Sleek, Aesthetic Design

Pawbo+ features an aesthetically pleasing and unobtrusive oval form that fits stylishly in any corner of the home and measures less than 8 inches high and 4 inches wide and weighs only 1 pound. Pawbo+ requires 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz) connectivity and router with WPA2-AES encryption.

New Accessories

Pet owners can expand the capabilities of Pawbo+ with four soon-to-be available add-on accessories to extend functionality. The first of these -- Pawbo Catch (cat teaser) -- is now available and for a limited time, pet owners will receive the Pawbo Catch accessory free with Pawbo+ purchase.

Pricing and Availability

Pawbo+ is available now to customers in the United States, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Taiwan at USD$199 with free shipping. Learn more at pawbo.com/us/pawbo-plus.html
