The holidays are here, and you might be heading out of town. For pet owners, this comes with some extra stress, particularly for those who don’t like boarding their pets. There’s an affordable solution this Black Friday.
During Target’s Black Friday sale, you can get a Wifi mini pet camera for just $19.99, so you can check in on your furry friend when the pet sitter isn’t there.
The Amazon Blink 1080p Mini Camera typically retails for just under $35, but if you shop between Nov. 21 and Nov. 27, you can snag it for under $20. Considering that the holidays are right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to buy one. For those who choose not to board their pets and instead have someone come into their homes a few times per day or stay overnight, you can see your adorable pet any time you want.
The Amazon is particularly handy, too. It’s a simple, plug-in camera that features motion detection and two-way audio so you can pet to your pet (or warn the pet sitter before you tune in). You can also get notifications sent to your smartphone when it senses motion. Yes, you can even record and save your footage using the Blink app which comes with a free 30-day trial (and is $3 monthly afterward).
The best part, though? It’s easy to set up. All you need to do is plug it in, download the Blink app, connect the camera to Wifi using Bluetooth, and set it where you’ll get the best view of your furry pal.
If you’ve been nervous about going out of town, this camera could be the answer. Just in case, though, you can also check out these additional tips, on prepping your pet for your upcoming travel.
