Hi, welcome everyone. Today I’m going to do something a little unusual for me, that’s a phone app.
I’ve just got a new phone from Samsung. I like Android. I still have my old Samsung, but what do you do with it? You tend to just chuck them in the drawer, but I’ve found a good use for them. You make make good use of the old camera.
It’s an app called Alfred. It makes this old phone’s video camera into a transmitter, and your new phone as receiver. While that’s quite good, what makes it exceptional is that it can alert you to any movement. If it gets triggered, you get an alert on your phone. Let’s try the app now.
This here is what we have been talking about, Alfred. It is very easy to set up. I’ll show you in action now.
I have the camera on my old phone, and the feed goes to the new one. It’s a free app as well.
It’s a useful idea mainly because of Motion Detection. That’s the most important thing. That’s a bit of security for nothing. This one also works with iPhone. If you’ve got an old Android and a new iPhone, or if you’ve got a new Android and an old iPhone, both are going to be the same system. It’s a really great idea, something that wastes nothing.
That’s it, just something I discovered and I really like it!
