Motorola Scout1 Pet Video Monitor
In an earlier post, I described the Motorola Scout 600 Pet Monitor which allows you to watch your pet in a different room or within a 520 foot range. The new Motorola Scout1 WiFi Pet Monitor takes monitoring your pets through video surveillance to a new level, so that you can monitor the activities of your pet through your smartphone or any wireless device that uses WiFi.
We love our pets, but most of us lead busy lifestyles that take us away from home. Motorola introduced Scout1 in 2014, and it is the first digital wireless pet video monitoring system with WiFi connectivity and two-way communication. The possibilities are endless! Most of us prefer to be with our pets at all times, but since that is simply not possible Motorola has created the next best thing, the Scout1 digital wireless interactive video pet monitoring system. This system allows pet owners to watch, listen and communicate with their pets from virtually anywhere 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can check in on your pets during a break at the office, while out shopping or running errands, or when you simply can’t physically be there.
The Motorola Scout1 is a camera that can be placed on any flat surface. The digital system is wireless, so you simply connect remotely to your wireless home router. Users can then access the camera via the secure Monitor Everywhere (ME) app on any internet enabled device like a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. Once connected, the Monitor Everywhere app enables users to control the pan, tilt and zoom of the camera. The app also allows you to view video and monitor your pets remotely. A bonus feature is that you can also communicate via 2-way audio in “walkie talkie” mode. You will be able to listen to your pet, and you will be able to speak to them when you are away from home.
Features of Motorola Scout1 Pet Video Monitor
- Access and control camera remotely via Free Secure App (Android or iOS)
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity
- MJPEG video compression
- Remote camera control to pan, tilt and zoom
- Infrared night vision
- Image snapshot (requires wireless connection to the internet and a compatible viewing device)
- Video recording (This function only works with PC and Android with storage capacity)
- Two-Way communication
- Room temperature display
The system is easy to use in low-light level conditions as it utilizes infrared night vision. If you keep a tablet or smartphone on your nightstand, it is easy enough to check-in on your pet in the middle of the night without getting out of bed. For breeders with an expectant litter on the way or someone with a sick dog, this can be a lifesaver. There is also a room temperature display on the app so that you can monitor the temperature in the room while you are not there.
Motorola Scout1 — Video Recording and Image Snapshots
Watch real-time video and sound in your home with up to 25 FPS video playback. Not only can you stay informed, you will be able to record live video and take snapshots of your pet using your wireless device.
Motorola Scout1 — Remote Pan, Tilt, and Zoom
Control the Scout1 camera remotely to pan, tilt, and zoom the video image as needed. You can aim the camera remotely depending on the location of your pet in the room.
Motorola Scout1 — Infrared Night Vision
Infrared night vision means you can stay in touch with your pet and see them in the dark and low light level conditions. This gives you peace of mind if you have to quickly check in on a pet at night.
Motorola Scout1 — Convenient Two-Way Communication
Talk to your pet using two-way communication. Your pet will be able to hear you remotely if you speak to him, and you will be able to hear the sounds your pet is making. This feature can give you peace of mind that your pet is resting comfortably, or checking in on a pet when they are sick.
Easy Set-Up of Motorola Scout1
As long as you have a household wireless network, the Motorola Scout1 is a cinch to set-up. You can download the free app for your WiFi enabled devices like a smartphone, Android, home computers, iPads, tablets, etc. Set the camera on any flat surface in the room you want to monitor. You can control the angle of the camera remotely, so you can pan through the room — point the camera at the dog’s crate, towards the sofa where the dog may be sleeping, etc.
