Smartphone Friendly Anti Theft Backpack & Security Camera

Enter a smartphone-friendly anti-theft backpack and security camera. smartphone friendly anti theft backpack

Whether you’re a dad, grad or just someone who uses a backpack (almost all of us), how often have you worried about someone getting into your backpack with you knowing? I know I have worried, especially when I travel and I always have a backpack as a carry-on when I fly or even for road trips.smartphone friendly anti theft backpackBackpacks are great for carrying our stuff from our iPads to our laptops, water bottles and more. Whether in high school or university students generally also have a backpack so why not have one that has some cool features. Enter the Travel Fusion smartphone friendly anti theft backpack. smartphone friendly anti theft backpackMany backpacks sacrifice usability for safety, but not the award-winning Travel Fusion Anti-Theft Backpack.

Give the gift of peace of mind with a security camera

Cleo our newest rescue dog. Such a sweetie but adjusting to knowing she now has a forever home.

Whether the dad in your life has little kids, older kids, grads, fur kids or maybe his vintage car or new bike is his baby having a security camera can provide peace of mind. For my hubby and I with two dogs both of whom are rescues and fairly new to the family we like to check in on them on the rare occasions we have to leave them at home. Apollo and especially Cleo who just joined the family two months ago and is two year’s old she’s still adjusting and not always happy if we can’t take her with us. apollo the rescue dog

Apollo happy as a clam on the beach on our recent trip with him and Cleo.When we recently took a road trip with Apollo and Cleo we stayed at a cabin and got to have all sorts of fun with them taking them to the beach where they could run to their hearts content. However, we brought the ALC Wireless’ HD security camera with full 180-degree, color viewing, night vision, motion detection and easy set up. We brought it for the few times we had to leave them in the cabins while we went swimming in the pool which as you can imagine doesn’t allow dogs.security camera

This gave us the ability to check up on them and ensure they weren’t stressing out and because it links to the existing router and transmits both video and audio to our smartphone or tablet 24/7, we could “talk” to them if they appeared anxious. This was also perfect for us to check and make sure they weren’t barking and disturbing our surrounding cabin neighbors. It was simply fabulous and we will take it with us again, at home we use it for the same purpose, mainly to ensure they are not in distress because we are not home.

It brings us peace of mind to know that they do stop barking and whining not long after we leave, so yes our pups are as capable of giving us the guilt trip as our daughter was when she was younger. She used to scream and cry when we dropped her off at daycare, our daycare provider assured us she stopped no more than 5 minutes after we left. If only I had one of these cameras at the time I wouldn’t have felt so guilty back then.

Bonus it records to its own micro SD card, there’s no danger of footage leaking out and push notifications keep you on top of anything that happens. Best of all, you can stand it up on its own so there’s no need to put any holes in walls, and it’s fully wireless. Did I mention it also has 30’ of night vision and infrared filter for true daytime color provide excellent images day or night. A handy gift indeed for parents and anyone really whether it’s their first apartment, first dog/cat or last home. Peace of mind is always welcome. You can also get this camera on Amazon.

Now do you see what I mean about gifts for dads, grads and everyone in between, ones that they might not have known they wanted until they got it. I think the anti theft backpack and this security camera are great gifts that also have that tech angle for other geeks like myself and hubby.
If you get them let us know how you like them!
