Digital Camera World Verdict

This camera works well for those wanting a subtle and sturdy pet camera that can keep an eye on things while you're away, storing footage using a cloud-based service with the option to drop in and check the camera at any time from the SpotCam app. The factors that let this camera down include the slow and buggy app issues, temperamental activation, and the need for it to be constantly plugged in without any wireless features allowing it to roam free. You will also need to pay extra for additional features such as extended cloud recording, and the virtual pet fence should you wish to use them, as part of a monthly subscription which seems unfair and should come as standard.

The SpotCam Mibo could be considered one of the best pet cameras on the market for those who simply want to check in on their pet when popping out for groceries, or when at work and your fur baby might be alone for extended periods of time. The basic nature and features of the SpotCam Mibo make it ideal for those who are only just looking into the world of pet and indoor security cameras and do not desire anything that's too complicated or flashy. 

With that said, the SpotCam Mibo is more than capable of acting as a home security monitor as well as a robot pet-sitter, with two-way communication through a built-in microphone allowing you to talk to your pet and deter them away from doing anything they shouldn't be or letting them know that you'll be home soon.
