See, Treat & Share: PetSafe to Introduce the Industry's First Social Sharing and Remote Treating System for Pets

PetSafe's SocialPet™ Camera & Treat Dispenser will be available on Feb. 15

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), more than 54 percent of pets are left at home during the day while owners are at work or involved in extra-curricular activities. However, one company will soon be offering an innovative way for busy pet owners – and their Facebook friends – to check in with their pet from wherever they are.

PetSafe®, an industry brand leader in the development of innovative pet behavioral, containment, lifestyle product solutions and services, has announced the launch of its SocialPet™ Camera & Treat Dispenser. Available Feb. 15, SocialPet is the only complete system that allows pet owners to remotely treat and socially share photos and videos of their pet via the SocialPet Facebook App.

According to Randy Boyd, CEO and founder of Radio Systems Corporation, makers of the PetSafe brand, the popularity of social networking and pet owners' desire to interact with their pets while away from home were the foundation for developing the innovative SocialPet system.

"Visiting social network sites is the No. 1 activity on the web," Boyd said. "As the leader in innovative pet products, we saw the opportunity to make busy pet owners' lives easier by developing the SocialPet system. We're excited for SocialPet to hit the market and can't wait to see how it improves the pet ownership experience."

SocialPet enables pet owners to see, treat and share their pet's best moments from anywhere. The SocialPet system includes a camera and treat dispenser that can be accessed anytime via a computer or smartphone through the SocialPet Facebook App. Pet owners and their friends can watch a live video stream of the pet, take and share photos with others, and give the pet his or her favorite treats all through the SocialPet Facebook App. SocialPet also allows pet parents to set certain permissions for friends and family, as well as a feeding schedule through the SocialPet Facebook App, so that their pet can only be treated during the times (or users) they select.

In addition to remote treating and sharing photos and videos of their pet through the SocialPet Facebook App, pet owners can also use SocialPet's live video stream feature to monitor their pet's behavior when they're not around. Pet owners may learn that their pet isn't truly housetrained or suffers from separation anxiety. The SocialPet system is also great for multiple pet households where pet owners may not know which pet is responsible for each action when they're not at home.

The SocialPet Camera & Treat Dispenser will be available to purchase online starting Saturday, Feb. 15 for $199 at http://store.petsafe.net/socialpet. Learn more about SocialPet and the results of initial product testing on PetSafe's blog, The Paw Print.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
