'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

The best Amazon Prime Day pet tech deals

As much as we would love to be with our pets 24/7, unfortunately, it is simply not realistic. Whether you work a full-time job or just need to run some errands, your fur baby is bound to stay home alone at some point. The Furbo 360° Dog Camera can help ease that experience, for both you and the pet. 

The camera provides a rotating 360-degree view of the entire area and tracks your dog, allowing you to see exactly what your pet is doing even when you're not home. The two-way audio allows you to hear your dog barking while the pet can also hear you speaking to it. Other fun perks include real-time alerts to your phone and treat tossing. If you have ever considered buying one, you may want to take the plunge now that it is 31% off. 

If you own a four-legged furry critter, the potential for them to escape out the door is a genuine concern. Having a doorbell camera like the Ring Video Doorbell can be useful in calming those worries. The advanced motion detection and real-time notifications will alert you so you can stop your pet before it is too late. 

The Ring doorbell camera has 1080p HD video, two-way talk, app access, and night vision. All of these features can help you and your pet feel more protected. Although it's not wireless, the $35 price tag can't be beat 

This product may be more for you than for your pet. If you have a pet that sheds, you know how bad allergies can get. Having an itchy nose, teary eyes, and scratchy throat is not fun for anyone, no matter how much you love your pet. That's where an air purifier can come in handy. 

The Germ Guardian Air Purifier can help remove pet dander, pet hair, germs, dust, pollen, and even odors to help you feel better in your own home. This air purifier usually retails at $265 but is 43% off right now, making it $150. 

Having to clean up after your pet when it does its business is never fun. The ELS PET Self Cleaning Cat Litter Box does the work for you. The litter box lets you skip the scooping by discarding the waste into its own trashcan that you can easily dispose of once the cat does its business. It also has UV technology that can keep the litter box clean and reduce odors. 

One of the biggest perks of this litter box is that it connects to an app that enables you to monitor how frequently your pet uses the bathroom and how much litter you have remaining in the box. The litter box is now available for 5% off and an extra $200 off by clipping the coupon. So if you've considered switching to an electronic litter box, now may be the time. 

In the same way that humans benefit from having a steady eating schedule, so do pets. Even if you are home to feed your cat, having a machine that can automatically dispense the same exact amount of food every day, at the same time, can help implement a healthy routine for your pet. An automatic pet feeder is especially useful if you have an unpredictable schedule. 

PETLIBRO's Automatic Cat Feeder was the first pick on our best list because it's reliable, can play voice recordings, and can schedule 1-4 meals per day. Although it is labeled for cats, it can also work for small to medium-sized dogs. Right now, it's 41% off.

How did we choose these Amazon Prime Day deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we're recommending. Our recommendations may also be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
