Petcube is back and ready to help you reward (or yell at) your pets, even when you’re not at home. Its new Bites 2 Lite treat slinger is half the price of the original Bites 2. Although the new Lite version cuts out a few features, it keeps the essentials and is much more affordable.
The original version had Alexa built-in, a four-microphone array, an aluminum and plastic design, and support for both a 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi connection. Naturally, to get the cost cut in half for the Lite version, a few compromises had to be made, but honestly, it’s not terrible and will still be sufficient for most pet owners.
In this transaction, the treat dispenser is reduced to a single microphone, an all-plastic design, and a 2.4GHZ-only Wi-Fi connection. It also reduces your two-way audio quality from “premium” to “smooth,” which is vague, but Petcube insists the device will still provide “life-like sound for your pet to recognize your voice.” While this treat slinger still works with Amazon Alexa, it no longer has it built in.
The Bites 2 Lite keeps the 160-degree field of view with 1080p HD video and night vision, along with two-way audio, sound- and motion-detected capture, real-time notifications, and—of course—the treat dispenser. You can pick up the Petcube Bites 2 Lite now on Amazon.
