The pet care robot developed by Guru IoT, the company developing IoT products, is a great playmate for cats and dogs at home. After placing a smartphone on the robot and establishing a connection through an app, all smartphone functionalities such as real-time video chat, recording, video replay, music replay, and photo taking are available on the robot.
In addition, it can feed the pet at preset time intervals with the desired amount. With a sensor that detects the temperature, humidity, and noise, the robot can respond flexibly to sudden temperature changes or noise from the dog barking or cat meowing.
An official with Guru IoT said, "As the number of pet owners in Korea exceeds the 10-million level, the popularity of pet appliances is rising fast. In the coming spring, we suggest to pet owners to think about buying a pet care robot PEDDY for their companions."
The pet sitter robot PEDDY is available on the website of Guru IoT (https://en.guruiot.com/).
