July 4th is just around the corner, and we wanted to remind pet parents that more time spent outdoors poses an added risk of pets escaping or getting lost. July 1st is ID Your Pet Day, which is timely since more pets go missing due to fireworks during the 4th of July celebrations than during any other time of the year.

ASPCA has provided us with some key safety tips to help you safeguard your pet this summer.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review #SmartCamWoof #Giveaway

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 BestBuy.com 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!
