Our pets who stay at home have to stay either inside the house or outside in the yard. If our pets stays indoors it is complicated for them to do their basic needs, they also might play around and make mischief. If our pets stays in the yard, they will be exposed to the weather and other factors. There is a real need to take care of our pets when we leave them alone at home and to be able to interact with them remotely. Pets are alone for most of the working hours of a day.

How we built it
To create our project we used differents API'S from Kinship, August and Intersystems, first we worked with the devices to know how can we use them, then we started working principally with Postman to send data from August, Receive data from Intersystems so we can link them, we create a DataBase with Intersystems to have a the Register of users with the pet's ID and User's Email.
Challenges we ran into
It was really hard to integrate in one demo all the things that we developed.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of being able to surpass the challenge of image recognition, it seemed like a challenge for the progam to be able to take screenshots of the live feed due to the coding language that we were using, but at the end, we were able to make it work. We're also proud of being able to connect August, Intersystems and Kinship in a single efficient product.
What we learned
Even though it seemed easy to make an automization system to be able to send emails and tweets depending on a certain scenario, we were able to fix some certain issues that we encountered along the way.
