We recommend having one monitor for every litterbox in your home. This will ensure the data and insights the system provides are as accurate and complete as possible.
The Petivity Smart Litterbox Monitor is designed to fit seamlessly into your cat’s litter routine. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a location for your litterbox and monitor.
The monitor is designed to function best on a smooth, level, hard surface. A short pile carpeted surface is typically ok too, but where possible, we recommend placing it on a smooth, level, hard surface. If you’re using a mat or placing the monitor on carpeting, raise the adjustable feet to ensure the bottom of the monitor is not touching the carpet, mat or other flooring surface. If you use a litter mat, it is important to make sure all four feet are on the mat. Uneven monitors can cause a disruption in data.
The Petivity system uses artificial intelligence to track and distinguish between multiple cats. As soon as you complete your monitor setup, the system will ask you to help identify which cat has used the litterbox. This feedback helps the system learn how to distinguish between multiple cats and provide accurate insights. For more, read our article on How Petivity Works with Multiple Cats.
The Petivity Litterbox Monitor translates subtle behavioral and weight changes you may miss into meaningful data, and alerts via the Petivity mobile app you when a change may be cause for concern. For more info on how the system works, check out our article on Understanding the Data, where Petivity Behaviorist Dr. Ragen walks through your most commonly asked questions about how Petivity provides important insights about your cat.
With a little time, the Petivity Smart Litterbox Monitor will help you discover new insights about your cat. And because the artificial intelligence system will continue to improve as it learns more about your cat’s unique behaviors, it will continue to deliver the data and information you need to proactively care for them.
