Win a Kodak Video Monitor for home security

I probably shouldn’t admit this, but until recently, we didn’t own any type of home security system. We live in a safe neighborhood, have big dogs, and great neighbors who look out for us. However, after a flurry of break-ins to cars and garages in our area, we’ve gotten smarter about monitoring our home, especially when we’re away.


To keep a better eye on our home when we travel, we tried the Kodak Video Monitor CFH-V15. This two-way video monitor is designed to monitor any space…we set it up in our living room just past our entry, so we could check in on things while on vacation. Mostly, we monitored the cat.

The video monitor comes in a small box, and I was relieved to discover it’s not intimidating to set up. In fact, it took us just over five minutes to have it up and running. Really, there are just a few steps:

  1. Take it out of the box.
  2. Connect it to power, via the included power cord.
  3. Download the app on Android or iOS, and connect via your home WiFi.
  4. Open the app and follow instructions.

The monitor comes with free cloud storage and unlimited live HD streaming via the app. The user can control the camera via the app, which means we can rotate the point-of-view as needed, even from our hotel room. The optional smart detection means the camera will automatically move if movement is detected. There’s two-way audio (so we can say hi to the cat) and night vision. You can store video on the cloud for one day, or you can upgrade to get 14-day ($9.99 per month) or even 30-day storage. We found we didn’t need it, but if this is for you, plans are located at Connected Family Home.

Pick up this monitor on Amazon for $119, or enter our giveaway!
