Life can get messy, and nobody's life is messier than a pet-parent's life (well, maybe those with a human baby). But that's why this robot vacuum from Yeedi is a must-have for any pet-parent.

With its oh-so-chic white exterior and the WORLD'S LARGEST DUSTBIN, the Yeedi K650 is the robot vacuum of your pet-parenting dreams.

This might be the only vacuum you'll ever meet that your pet won't hate! Plus, the XXL 800 mL dustbin will make sure it's got adequate space to clean up your pet's hair and more. The Yeedi K650 is compatible with both the Amazon Echo and Google Home, so it'll make cleaning up after your pet even easier.

2. Furbo Dog Camera

Now that the world is slowly going back to a state of normalcy, our days of working from home might soon be over. Unfortunately, that means our beloved pets will have to be home alone once again while you're stuck at the office. A good way to keep an eye on your pet is a dog camera. As far as dog cameras go, the Furbo Dog Camera is one of the best options on the market. Coupled with a 'paw-some' treat tossing function, the Furbo also has a 2-way audio so you can talk to your pooch like you would at home. My dog will even do tricks through the camera! Its HD video will ensure you can view your pet in glorious HD.

3. PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder

The Smart Feed Auto Pet Feeder from PetSafe is a smart option that'll make feeding your pet even easier! It has paw-some functions like a low food sensor so you never have to worry if Fido or Fluffy runs out of food, multiple feed options for every type of eater, and programmable feeding. Best of all, you can feed your pet from virtually anywhere using your phone! If you are in a multiple pets household, there's also a convenient meal splitter you can use with the feeder (sold separately).

4. PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor

While we're on the subject of PetSafe products, we should also talk about their collar-activated electronic smart doggy door. The PetSafe Electronic SmartDoor is collar activated, so only pets with a smart key can go in or out. You won't run the risk of having unwanted visitors like raccoons or even skunks come into your home through the doggy door. The PetSafe smart door also comes with 3 programmable options so you can control your pet's access. If you have a dog that loves going outside, which quite honestly, is pretty much all dogs, this electronic smart door from PetSafe is the way to go!

5. Whistle Go Explore GPS Pet Tracker

Although this doesn't necessarily fall into the 'Smart Home' category, we still want to give this helpful and convenient product a mention. After all, aren't smart home products supposed to make things more convenient? The Whistle Go Explore is the ultimate pet tracker for pets that like to be on the move. With their real-time location tracking function, you can rest assured knowing exactly where your fur-babies are at all times. This nifty tracker can also monitor your pooch's health and fitness levels: perfect for your furry hiking buddy or running partner. Plus, the color options are just so pretty!
