It used to be that if you wanted any form of home security, you would have to hire a company to install cameras in your house. If you wanted to save some money, you’d need a whole bunch of tools and a clever way to wire the system right. In any case, it was a messy and complicated process.
As technology develops, people started to realize home surveillance can be much cheaper, easier, and more effective! You might want to know what changed. Well, nowadays everybody has a smartphone!
More often than not, people have multiple smartphones at their disposal. How many times have you got a new smartphone before the previous one completely broke? Probably more than you’d care to admit. What can you do with these older phones? As it turned out, you can turn them into home security cameras! Imagine how great it’d be if you can find out what is going on in your house when you are away!
You can do that by downloading an app called Alfred (Android or iOS) to your devices. After logging in with your Gmail account, the device that is used as security camera (Camera) will record video clips when there is any movement and then send the device you use as monitor (Viewer). As long as all the devices are connected to the Internet, you can stay updated wherever you are. Alfred is also equipped with features such as Night Vision, Two-Way Talk, and Trust Circle. There is no need to pay extra for an infrared camera!
The best part? Alfred (Android or iOS) is free! Not only do you not have to shell out money for the devices, the app’s many wonderful features are provided to the users free of charge. Security for everyone: that’s what Alfred is all about!
