Ring has been giving PureWow editors peace of mind for years. Monitoring our homes 24/7 and, more recently, providing real-time video notifications to see who (or what) is outside our door. Of course, there's more to the brand's surveillance devices (which you can read in our review of the Ring Video Doorbell 3), but there's a reason why you, your grandparents, your parents and your adult friends all love this nifty piece of tech. And now pet parents can get in on the action too because Ring just launched a new Pet Tag that uses a custom QR code to help you find your furry baby if they go missing.
Yes, you read that right, and at only $10, you can bet folks are lining up to pre-order it as we speak. The Pet Tag doesn't officially release until October 4, but there's a high chance it will sell out since it's supposed to be *super* easy to use. Here's how it works: Once you get your Pet Tag in the mail, you'll create a pet profile in the Ring App that holds records of your dog’s/cat's photos, medical information and whatever else you want to include. Doing so essentially puts them in a system, so if they go missing, anyone can scan the Pet Tag’s QR code, and you'll be alerted that they've been found. From there, your rescuer can call or text you so you can reunite with your baby ASAP.
BTW: The exchange between you and your rescuer will be totally anonymous, so you don't have to worry about sharing any personal info you don't want to.
