Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review #SmartCamWoof #Giveaway

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pet parents know that the fur kids are part of the family, so when you’re at work or away and they’re home alone, you naturally want to check up on them. We’ve been testing out the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro, which allows pets and their people to stay connected.

It’s got super easy setup and a free app for Android or iOS, that lets you monitor your home and pets from any location. Advanced features for keeping an eye on your furry friends include 128 degree ultra-wide angle security coverage, 1080p full HD live video streaming, advanced motion detection, night vision and more.

With all these features, Samsung has really covered what most people need in a home WiFi camera. The price is nice, at $159, with lots of customer reviews and ratings at both and Amazon. We love the two-way talk feature, although Daisy hasn’t figured out how to talk back yet! You can also use it to check-in with your human kiddos after school.

Everything you need is in the box, and I was able to get the camera up and running in about 10 minutes (it did a software security update once I connected it to WiFi). If you want, you can also get a 64GB Micro SD Memory Card which will allow you to record your video locally for long-term storage. You do need to have an existing home WiFi network set up already, which I’m guessing most of you do.

The SmartCam HD Pro also works with Samsung SmartThings and with other devices including the Amazon Echo. We got ourselves an Echo for Christmas and are loving it, but haven’t utilized it’s full capabilities yet. Anyway, here’s what’s in the box…totally not scary, and super easy to run the wireless setup using the app and your smartphone!

  1. i would just use it to watch my dog! and possibly for security when we get a house!

  2. I’d like it to keep an eye on my dog – I’d feel better watching him on the rare occasions when I leave as he can have seizures. But there are some times when I just have to leave him (like my own medical appointments). Thanks.

  3. I’d like to know when the kids get home. They sometimes forget to call me and I can’t always watch the clock. 

  4. For me, it would be for watching my cat when I’m away from home as well as general security.

  5. Sandy Weinstein says

    my main reason is that i have an older dog, 15 1/2, who is deaf, almost blind, has a little dementia and has terminal cancer. i dont like to leave her alone. it is hard for me to go out and make sure she is safe when i leave even though i have taken precautions. i would love to know that i can watch her to make sure she is okay while i am out. i also would like to keep tabs on my other 2 4 legged girls because they get into lots of trouble sometimes, especially the younger girl. she likes to climb up on things and take things down, chew on them. i never know what she is going to get into.

  6. Elaine c galante says

    I’d love to see what Preston does while im out for peace of mind. Added security would be a bonus.

  7. Ellie Wright says

    We’ve been talking about getting one of these to see which of our dogs goes nuts when we aren’t home.

  8. I’m constantly worried about my dogs when I am away. Since I got my German Shepherd pup, he has me always worrying, so I seldom leave the house unless he is with me. This would help put my mind at ease, while I check on him.

  9. Nancy Loring says

    I would like to see how my dog is doing. My son recently moved out and he took his dog and my Tuc is feeling the loss. I just want to make sure that he is doing ok while I am gone.

  10. Added security to make sure he is okay and not in danger. Ease of mind.

  11. Veronica Adrover says

    I’d use this to check on my dogs while I’m away – especially the one that has a touch of separation anxiety.

  12. My cat is hyperthyroid. He will be in isolation at a vet office for a week during radioactive iodine treatment. I would like to be able to see how my cat is doing during the treatment, since I will not be allowed to visit him. Also, I will need to monitor and clean up litter box usage on a different floor of my house afterwards so that the radioactive contents do not injure anyone in my household. I have difficulty getting up and down stairs, so monitoring the cat when he is in the basement would be very helpful, in general.

  13. Linda Szymoniak says

    I have three Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats (all rescues). Of my dogs, my two boys are the ones most likely to get into trouble when I’m not home. They also bark FAR too much, and I’m working on getting that under control. Of course, when I’m not home, they can bark freely. This would give me a way to correct them even when I’m not home. I could also keep an eye on my older cat, who hasn’t been feeling well for the past few days.

  14. I want to have a home WiFi camera so I can monitor our house when we aren’t home

    We would love to be able to keep an eye on the house while we are away as it is very old with old wiring. I’m always afraid of fire. We were also broken into a few months ago & so glad all my pups were ok. This would give me lots of peace of mind.

  19. Theresa Spaid says

    3 of my furkids are pretty old and I feel better if I could keep any eye one them. I lot one new pup and it might get interesting to see what he is up to!

  20. I would love to have this for when my kiddos get home from school and I can check in on them and make sure they’re safe before I get home.

  21. The Samsung Smart Cam HD Pro would give me peace of mind knowing I can monitor and be there for my dog when he has epileptic seizures. The night vision is a great security feature too. I can identify who/what is making the noises that put my dog on alert at night as he does not need the added stress

  22. Cheryl Chervitz says

    I would like to see what my dogs do when I’m gone.  They bark at everything they see outside when I’m home, want to see if they do it while I’m gone too!

  36. What a cutie! I would definitely use this to watch my big baby, Bentley. I also have a precious cat, an Eclectus parrot named Romeo and a hamster.

  61. my main reason is for security

  62. elizabeth miller says

    I would absolutely love to have this camera in my home for several reasons but my primary is my father in law had a stroke and had to move in with us. He really needs someone home in the house with him at least to keep an eye on him. On the times where I have had to go to my daughters school for a few hours or go to work for a few hours, it becomes a mess. Either he calls one of our cells and hangs up and then won’t answer and I end up rushing home in a panic that something is wrong or he just doesn’t answer when we call. This would be great to have to help keep an eye and know if we really need to race home or not.

  63. Priscilla P. says

    I would like to have this Samsung Smartcam for security. I would like to see what my fur baby does when I’m away also.

  70. Debra Holloway says

    I think I would like to have it for security, and for keeping an eagle eye on my fur baby.
