People often mention smart appliances like smart washing machines and refrigerators when talking about smart homes. Indeed, they help make people’s lives easier and more convenient. But we often forget one thing. Sometimes, humans are not the only residents in our homes. Most people have pets.
And believe it or not, there are smart devices designed specifically to make pet keeping easier. These devices will make everyone feel more comfortable at home, including your “fur babies”.
So, what are these devices?
EyeVac Pet Touchless Vacuum
A study has pointed out that owning a dog makes you live longer. Also, everyone knows that dogs bring joy to the family. The problem with having them as pets is their hair gets everywhere. Also, you may find yourself sweeping the floor too often because of debris, food crumbs, and more. There is a smart home device you can buy, so you don’t need to do that.
The EyeVac Pet Touchless Vacuum detects dust, hair, and debris while the 1,400-watt motor sucks them up. They end up in an easy-dum canister. This vacuum will even notify you when it is time to empty the bagless canister.

Feeder-Robot by Whisker
This smart pet feeder does what smart feeders should do. You can set portion-controlled feeding schedules from the Feeder-Robot. Alternatively, you can use the mobile app; this smart feeder has Wi-Fi connectivity.

CHEWDEN Dog Treat Holder
You can use bowls to feed your dogs. But bowls can’t hold everything, especially chews. You sometimes have to put treats and chews on the floor. That can result in a mess. The CHEWDEN Dog Treat Holder eliminates that problem.
This tech holds almost any chews and makes chews longer. It also helps prevent choking by securing the end of the dog’s chew.
Furthermore, it features an easy-wipe base that fixes to one location and contains mess by catching drool and crumbs.
This gadget is technically not a smart device because it does not have Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity or scheduling. But it sure is a nice addition to your smart home.
