Motorola Scout 66 Wi-fi Pet Monitor
One of the biggest challenges we have in our pet-centric home is leaving it. We have three dogs who only get along part of the time and are incredibly dependent on both my husband and I. It’s a situation we created, so it’s a situation we need to resolve.
Thankfully, technology is catching up with our actual needs. We can now leave the house without worry because it’s like we’re still there in a lot of ways. Of course, cameras will never take the place of actually being there, but when it comes to alleviating stress, pet cams can help us cope with being away.[note style=”5″ icon=”yes” class=”template-style”]Disclosure: We received a camera for review.

The Motorola Scout 66 is the newest version of the Motorola line of wi-fi pet monitors to hit the pet-centric tech market. This version is faster with a connectivity rate of 802.11 b/g/n, contains digital zoom (something we didn’t have on earlier models), offers night-vision that is very clear, two-way communication (so you can bribe animals from afar), and room temperature monitoring to ensure your pets are experiencing a comfortable environment.
The Scout 66 is a self-contained video camera that can be placed or attached onto any flat surface. Simply connect the camera via Wi-Fi to a home router and you can access the camera by using a free “Hubble” app that is available for any internet-enabled device. The app allows you to view live video, zoom in and out, and even communicate with pets via two-way radio.
