Do you have an old phone or tablet that you always leave at home? Now there’s a way you can put it to good use! The easy-to-use Home Eye app can turn your mobile device into a security camera. You get a genuine video surveillance system without having to pay a penny for IP cameras or DVR systems. The only thing you need is in your hands already. A phone with a WiFi connection.
Home Eye uses your mobile device’s camera to track and detect movement. Start Home Eye, switch on monitoring, and leave the phone at home. If any suspicious movement is detected, the app will sound a siren, take some photos using the camera, and send you a notification. When you find out about what has happened, you can take action straight away—for example, by calling security or the police.
You probably have another mobile phone that you always have with you. You can use this other phone as your Monitor, allowing you to view the video stream from the other phone remotely. You’ll see everything the Camera phone can see at that moment, right on your screen. It’s very convenient: you’ll always know what’s happening, wherever you are. You also have the option to activate or deactivate monitoring, or change the app settings—all remotely.
