I recently attended a webinar about the VueZone home video monitoring system. I randomly won a camera for my home! We were all so excited to try this camera, especially my son who claimed it as his own!

After we received it, I passed it over to my husband. I know it’s suppose to be easy to set up but I hate figuring tech stuff out. I really could have done. Really. He had it set up and the account made online so quickly that the next thing I knew my daughter was making funny faces into the camera just to see herself on my computer screen. And so it begins.

The VueZone is intended for home safety, checking in on latch-key kids and checking in for a visual hello if you happen to be out of town. However, my children use it to spy on each other. My son has the app set up on his iTouch, my daughter uses my iPhone. We also use it to spy on our dogs when we leave them home and inside alone. Pretty funny, I know. So far, they’ve been good. If there comes a time that we see them being naughty, I must remember to record the viewing so I can submit it to The Planet’s Funniest Animals.

The camera is small and wireless so it can be moved to any location in the home.  The VueZone gateway plugs into router or cable/DSL modem. The video is viewed via computer with wifi or a smartphone.

You can read more about the functionality and design of the VueZone on my original post, I Am Watching (The Hottest Parent Tool) or visit VueZone.com for the price, to see how it works and learn about it’s smartphone capabilities.

Part of my winning the VueZone prize for myself was also winning one VueZone System with 1 Motion Detection Camera to give away ($179 value)!  For all you tech-loving moms, moms who want to check in on the kids (with a visual) and moms of mischievous kids (like mine), this system is for you!  It could also make a great Christmas gift for you hubby if you win!

    We live in a nice area but we have increased crime so I would use it to be able to see the front door and interior front room in case someone breaks the door in (which happens). Also to see how my old dog is able to crawl up on my couch yet he looks feeble. Is he pulling my leg?

  2. I would use it as a “cat cam” to capture the antics of my cats whilst I am away.

    I love your idea about a pet video…I also like the sense of security it would give me.

    Thank you for this contest. I have a newly injured small dog. I feel she should be monitored at all times. We would use it to check in on her while out running an errand(s) while away from the home.
