For the past few decades, since the invention of the home video camera, pets have been a staple of the funny video market. We love watching our pets play and sharing their antics with our friends and family. 

Many families do so in the hope that someday their pet dog or cat will do something so funny that they can earn a few hundred dollars or create a viral YouTube video - right now I’m thinking of that poor grey kitten startled by lizards or that cat which chased off an alligator.

Previously a niche hobby costing too much for most families, drones are fast becoming more and more affordable. There are many uses for drones, but the one we care about is using the on-board camera to create some amazing videos of our pets; especially while out hiking or playing with your pets.

f you’ve been on the hunt for an inexpensive solution to monitor pets, the Vimtag® P1 Premium IP Wireless Network Security Camera, Plug/Play, Pan/Tilt with Two-Way Audio and Night Vision may be the camera you've been looking for in life.

The Vimtag P1 offers you a friendly app, night vision, hi-def recording, 4x Digital Zoom, pan and tilt, and motion-triggered push notifications.

The app is quite user-friendly and accommodates up to 30 cameras (and four separate users) at a time.

The Vimtag app allows up to four guest users to install the app and monitor.

Here are some other facts you should know about Vimtag and why it would make a great camera for your home.

The Samsung Note 7 made its debut this year at the a bargain, BlogHer Conferenceand we couldn’t be more excited for this phone! As you probably know, I’ve had the Note 5 for about a year and to say this phone is literally attached to my hip is the most accurate use of “literally” that I know.

There is a lot to love on this phablet phone (not the least of which is the curved design similar to the Samsung S6 Edge design). That is obviously the first big thing you’ll notice about this phone. But, here are a few other things that are new with the Note 7 (as compared to my Note5).

Over the holidays, while travel time away from home was at its max, we had the opportunity to review the new Kodak Video Monitor for pets. I was very impressed! 

This is a great device that allows those of us whose lives center around our pets live a life outside of our pets. It’s not only reassuring to be able to slip out for a movie or dinner without having to worry about what’s happening at home.

The KODAK Video Monitor CFH-V10 has instant HD color streaming video and a clean two-way audio hook up that works on multiple devices (IOS or Android). It works on your home’s own wi-fi network, so there’s no security concerns you should worry about and since it's fast, you don't have to worry about draining your phone's battery. 

So, why would you need a reason to see your pet while you’re away from home? There are dozens of reasons, but I’ll give you ours...
