We all know that pets are an integral part of the family, so perhaps they should have the same comforts their owners do. It is with this in mind that Petrics has come up with a pet health ecosystem and smart bed that offers thermostatic climate control.
In addition to making sure your furry friend is not too warm or cold, the Bluetooth and WiFi enabled bed features a built-in scale. This allows you to make sure they are in their optimal weight range, which is important as most owners weight their pets less than once a year. The intelligent bed also connects with the Petrics wearable activity tracker which monitors your pet’s caloric burn rate, rest levels and other metrics, helping you spot health issues early on.

The accompanying smartphone app is the central repository for all this information. It allows owners to monitor and track pet’s health and nutrition data, get food and diet recommendations and share findings with family members and veterinarians. Just in case you were wondering, Petrics connects with existing smart home technology such Amazon Echo, Nest, and Google Home, too!
“Our number one goal is to help pets live longer,” said Ed Hall, CEO, Petrics.
“Our system helps pet parents care for their furry best friends by creating a connected ecosystem that tracks, analyzes and recommends optimal health solutions unique to each pet and ultimately, helps save lives through early detection and intervention.”
The ecosystem of products will officially be unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics show in just under a month’s time. In the run-up to the Las Vegas event, Petrics has been selected as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree in both the Smart Home and Tech for a Better World product categories.
The company has recently turned to Indiegogo to fund product development. The smart bed and activity tracker are going for $75, with delivery scheduled in the spring. The campaign has another two months to go before it closes.
