What It Is
This high-tech device is the Kodak video monitor for Pets from Tend Insights. The Kodak Video Monitor works in conjunction with a free app called ISecurity Plus which is available in both android and IOS versions. After downloading the app you plug in the camera and it automatically will go into setup mode. After following a few more steps which are not difficult you are now connected to your camera streaming High Def video from anywhere at anytime. The camera also switches into nightvision mode when there is very little or no light. You can use the camera on any flat surface or mount the camera on a wall or ceiling using the provided base plate and the screws included with the camera. The ISecurity Plus app lets you pan the camera 350 degrees left and right and 105 degrees up and down. The ISecurity plus app also will alert you each time there is movement in front of the camera. You can also activate the highlight reel feature which will let you watch your pets activity in a montage that you can also share with friends and family. That covers most of the technical points but let's just say that this camera is a great value for the price. It does everything it claims to and if you’re interested, you can even pay a small monthly fee for extra features like a larger cloud space and smart features like human recognition which only alerts you when a human moves. Bottom line, this camera is terrific for security purposes and to keep an eye on your pets when you can’t be home.
