Motorola Scout66 WiFi Pet Video Camera Review & Giveaway

Everyone has that ONE pet who’s always up to no good, right?

For some, it’s that adolescent schnoodle who just keeps chewing up her dog bed.

For others, it’s the new great dane puppy who howls when left alone or the pitbull who keeps trying to bust out of her crate.

You just can’t trust dogs or cats when they’re left to their own devices. You never know what they’ll do!

This is why a pet video camera can be so helpful for peace of mind.

A responsible pet owner will naturally worry about her pets, but she shouldn’t have to be anxious about leaving them.

That Mutt partnered with Binatone Global to bring you this post.

I’m giving away a FREE Motorola Scout66 WiFi Pet Monitor valued at $99. Leave a comment below to enter. Click here.

Overview of the Motorola Scout66 WiFi Pet Monitor

Motorola Scout66 WiFi Pet Monitor

The Motorola Scout66 WiFi Pet Monitor is a pet video camera you can use to monitor your pets from anywhere you can get an Internet connection. It works with the free viewing app hubble, which is compatible with most devices and easy to set up.

When pets are left alone, they could eat the wrong thing (such as a plant or a toy), they could get into the trash, chew up your blinds, participate in a social club (barking!) or who knows what else.

Just this week, my cousin’s cat knocked a pumpkin pie off the counter and then her beagle proceeded to eat over half the pie!

You just never know, and you can’t really put a value on PEACE OF MIND.

I’ll cover some pros and cons of the Motorola Scout66 based on my experience. If you have any questions about the product, just leave them in the comments.

What’s nice about the Scout66 camera is it is designed specifically for monitoring pets.

Consider a pet monitor camera if:

1. You want to check in on your dog or puppy while you’re at the office, especially if you have a younger dog just starting to have more freedom.

2. You need to make sure your dog or puppy isn’t barking all day and disturbing your neighbors.

3. You would like to check on your cats for peace of mind when you leave them home alone for a weekend. Do they still have food? Do they seem to be doing OK?

4. You want to use the camera to make sure your dog walker or pet sitter shows up, especially if even if if the pet sitter is your brother in law!

5. You live in an area that can get very cold or very hot and you need to make sure the room temperature is safe and your pets are OK.

Here are some of my thoughts on the Motorola Scout66

What I like about it

Motorola pet monitor camera

  • The Motorola Scout66 is made specifically for checking in on pets. It has features like temperature alerts, the ability to play music, two-way communication, FREE in-app video recording, etc.
  • It’s a well-made product at a good value ($99.99).
  • The picture is clear on my phone. The whole system is really easy to use. You just plug in the camera, download the app, pair the camera to your wifi and you’re ready to go.
  • The camera has a long cable so it’s easy to set up anywhere and still be able to reach an outlet.

What I don’t like

  • If you want the camera to record everything, there is a fee. This service will capture everything and store it in Hubble’s “cloud,” which you can access at any time. There is a free trial for this service so you can test it out first.
  • If you’re trying to record fast movement, the picture gets a little blurry. Not a big deal.
  • Hubble stores all videos securely in its cloud but of course there is a privacy factor to consider with all video cameras.

How easy is it to set up?

The Motorola Scout66 is easy to use and easy to set up. Just make sure to carefully follow the user guide and give yourself some time for the first setup and to get used to the system more than 10 minutes before you’re leaving for the weekend.

I recommend trying it a few times while you’re home or gone for a few hours vs. leaving for the weekend.

Here’s what the camera looks like set up on my shelf.
