PlayDate allows pet owners to interact with their pets remotely. Every pet owner wants to play with their pets when they're not at home. Our remote-controlled ball enables a user to play with their dog or cat from anywhere. A camera inside the ball allows owners to see where the ball is going and their pet, creating a truly interactive way to play.
The smart ball is easy to setup and connects to your home’s existing wireless network. When you’re not at home, you can connect to the device from your mobile phone via our app. Using the app, you can control the ball via the touchscreen and see a live video feed of your pet in HD!
As dog lovers ourselves, we know how important durability is and built PlayDate with that in mind. The smart ball has an inner protective chamber that keeps the circuitry safe. For even more durability, we’ve added a super tough, scratch resistant polycarbonate exterior. We also realize that even the most durable toys will eventually get scratched and chewed on. So, you’ll be able to replace the clear outer shell as time goes on.
PlayDate is very safe and is shatterproof. It’s made of the same material that many treat dispensing ball are made of.
PlayDate uses the latest technology in data encryption so you know your video feed is always safe. We use AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), which is the same level of encryption that the US Government uses to protect sensitive information. That means no one will be able to see your video feed but you.
PlayDate started with a problem that we were intimately familiar with: Every time we left for work, we felt guilty about leaving our furry friends at home. We couldn’t always take them with us but what if we could play with them remotely? We realized something had to be done.
Yes. Users can connect to the PlayDate smart ball from anywhere via their Android/iPhone.
PlayDate comes in two sizes: 3” and 4”. From our product testing, we’ve seen that cats and small dogs prefer the 3” whereas larger dogs prefer the 4” ball.
As of right now, the ball only comes in orange, encased in a clear, hard polycarbonate shell. Other colors may become available in the future.
