I love that everything is getting smart. We have smartphones, smartwatches, smart TVs, and even smart speakers. What about when you’re away from home and the pets are left all by their lonesome? Well, that’s where the company gosh! comes in.

The easyPlay is a new-style product that lets you bond with a pet while away from home. It can keep dogs and cats engaged and help keep them preoccupied so no chewing on objects occurs. With cameras, the ability to give treats, and more, easyPlay could be a home-run in the smart pet accessory game.

If you’ve ever been away from home but still wanted to keep an eye on your pets, this is a fantastic way to do it. easyPlay connects to your home’s Wi-Fi giving you access both inside and out of your home’s network.

There’s a built-in camera on easyPlay that allows you to video chat through two-way audio communication with your pet, or even take a photo or video and upload it to Facebook or Instagram.

Treats or food are easy to load with a simple door that unscrews, but is still pet-proof to keep your cat or dog from accessing it early.

You can set up easyPlay to give up to three feeding times to your pet, notifying the furry family member with a pre-set voice recording that the treat or food is ready. All the while the easyPlay ball moves around to get the pet’s attention.

This is a great way to make sure your pet is fed on-time without hiring a dog sitter if you have a long day at the office.

There’s a remote control aspect built into the app that lets you move the ball and engage your furry friend, and there is even a built-in G-sensor to tell you how active your pet is.

There is a random movement “Automatic Play” mode that can engage your pet on its own so you don’t have to be at the helm controlling easyPlay on your phone.

With people leading busier lives than ever before, this is a must-have to keep your pet both company and engaged while you’re away. Plus, being able to see your cat or dog while on a long business trip and keep them company with your voice is priceless, especially since you can capture the moments forever on the built-in camera.

easyPlay retails for $169 but is currently on sale for $149.95 shipped at Amazon.

gosh!, developer of unique, premium IT accessories that amplify life’s moments, today announced its latest product, easyPlay, is available for purchase on its website as well as on Amazon and at retailers, Fry’s Electronics, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

The concept for easyPlay was born from a desire to allow pet parents the opportunity to continue to bond with their pets while away from home. easyPlay keeps dogs and cats engaged and alleviates boredom. It is the last toy pets will need because it plays back! Features of the easyPlay include:

Ability to set up to three treat/feeding times—notify the pet with a pre-set voice recording that his treat or food is ready. Simultaneously, the ball moves to attract the pet’s attention. Camera with 2-way audio support allowing for communication between pets and their guardians when not together. Remote control through app, allowing user to move ball and engage pet. Activity tracker that reports on how active the pet is, using a G-sensor. Engages pet on its own in random movements using Automatic Play mode. Ability to take photos or video with the app and share on Instagram or Facebook. All features operate via your local Wi-Fi and connect to the cloud.

Users can pre-load hard treats or kibble into three different sections of the ball through an easy-to- unscrew (but still pet-proof) top. Once a treat or feeding time has begun, easyPlay self-reloads a new portion of treats with an internal rotating motor. The ball moves and plays a personalized voice recording to alert the dog or cat to play. The pet has to move the ball to get his/her treats out—keeping them active and engaged.

“Pets are important members of the family and we are very passionate about that,” said Adam Anderson, managing director for gosh! “It’s why our products are designed to ensure their well-being through new and innovative technologies.”

The easyPlay retails for $169.
