A home video monitor that's smart: Kodak V15 from Tend

Boot Camp feature for Monday, August 24, 2015

A home video monitor that’s smart.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     The problem with many Internet connected monitoring cameras on the market today is that if you’re set up to get alerts on your smart phone….you may get so many that you start to ignore them…or simply turn them off.   That’s because of all the false alarms from movement outside a window or light changes.    If you’ve had that problem, the Kodak V10 and V15 video monitors from Tend are worth a look.  They have HD resolution, two way communication and the ability use Smart Detection...

“With our analytic function we can specifically only alert you when there are people in the room, and tell you how many people there are in the room using our analytic engine.”

Tend business development VP Ron Pace.  The Smart Detection option is priced at about 3 dollars a month.   The company will store video in the cloud for a day for free.  A fourteen day plan is priced at about ten dollars a month.  The cameras themselves are attractively priced, starting at about a hundred dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
