Wireless Web Camera For Backyard Dog Monitoring

Brian Hinderberger

Our Presence App helps you monitor your dog in your backyard. Keeping your dog from running loose from your backyard is very important for his safety. He is in danger of getting into a fight with another dog, being hit by a car, getting taken up by a stranger with no intention of returning him, or hurt in any number of other ways. You're also liable for any injury or damage your dog may cause, and you may be required to pay a fine if he's picked up by an animal control agency. Presence App can help you keep an eye on your dog while you're away.

There are a number of reasons why your dog repeatedly attempts to escape the premise of your backyard. 

  • Fears and phobias from things like lighting or firecrackers.

  • Owner separation anxiety.

  • Natural drive to seek out a mate.

  • Social isolation and frustration.

Here are some tips from Humane Society of the United States on keeping your dog from escaping. Regardless of how secure you believe your backyard is in preventing your dog from getting loose, it's a great idea to have the ability to monitor your pet in your backyard while away.

How to Set Up a Free Presence App Pet Cam

Get increased security and peace of mind. Presence makes a great pet cam and do-it-yourself security system. Using your old smartphone or tablet inside your home, positioned so it has a view (or multiple phones for multiple views)  – Presence lets you know what’s happening when you’re gone. Get motion detection video alerts, and even view what’s happening in real time. Wouldn't it be fun to see something you want to save, like your dog basking in the sun on his back? Presence even lets you record video and take pictures while watching live.

With Presence, you can identify the situations that may lead to your dog escaping, like seeing him dig a hole under a fence. By adding Presence Security you can strengthen your dog's security by recognizing a door accidentally left open or motion in areas you don't expect him to be when you're gone.

You can even turn lights on and off to keep them in a well-lit place when it's dark with our integration of GE Link Bulbs. Our award-winning Presence app also includes Geofencing that helps you arm devices when you leave the radius of your home, making it easier to keep an eye on things when you're away.
