At just $150, the US-only Kodak Video Monitor CFH-V20 security camera is priced to compete in the DIY arena; it also happens to have some pretty premium specs.
The $150 Video Monitor CFH-V20 is Kodak's latest security camera, available in the United States through Amazon.
Detach the camera from its base to connect it to a USB-compatible battery pack (sold separately).
This makes on-the-go access possible, wherever you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection.
The CFH-V20 is equipped with a 180-degree field of view, night vision, two-way talk, motion alerts and free 24-hour event-based cloud storage via the iSecurity+ app, available for Android and iOS.
You can also sign up for Smart Detection, a premium option starting at $3 per month that does a pretty good job of distinguishing moving people from other motion-related activity (although it isn't able to tell you who it's seeing).
That way, you can connect to the iSecurity+ IFTTT channel for all sorts of advanced home automations.
