SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2014) - Petzila, a company committed to better connecting pets and their owners through innovation announces Holliday availability of the revolutionary PetziConnect™, an ingenious and much anticipated new way for pet lovers to interact with their pets anytime, from anywhere. Offering a ray of sunshine while away from home, PetziConnect is a device that seamlessly connects to the home's Wi-Fi and allows owners to ("see") video, ("treat") dispense treats, ("speak") audio and ("snap") take pictures & videos of their pets remotely using any internet enabled smart device.

Designed to create playful, mutually rewarding interaction that brightens the days of pets and their pet parents, PetziConnect features a smooth, clean design for seamless integration into the home. The easy to install device simply connects to the home WiFi and contains an HD camera, high-quality audio and the ability to dispense your pet's favorite treat at the touch of a button via the PetziConnect app. In addition, the iOS and Android app allows owners to share their pet pics and videos via social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the company's own, soon to launch social Petwork.

First to receive their PetziConnect, will be the supporters of the company's highly successful Indiegogo campaign which helped to fund and refine the product's design. The support and input from the Indiegogo community has been integral to creating the final product. Priced at $169.99 the PetziConnect will be available for the holidays and can be found at www.petzi.com. PetziConnect features:

  • Sleek, safe and durable design

A team of engineers, animal trainers and behaviorists designed every aspect of PetziConnect to ensure it delivers an experience that is optimized for both pet and owner. From the angle of the camera, clarity of the audio and even the landing areas of the "treat drop-zone", every detail creates a moment of joyful play that brightens the day for pets and their parents. 

"After two years of development, we are excited to share PetziConnect with the pet loving community," said David Clark, CEO and founder of Petzila. "PetziConnect is designed to bring that little ray of sunshine into yours and your pets day when you are away from home and need it most."
