Do you spend too much time away from home and you're scared someone may enter your house? Do you have to take care of an elderly person or a small child that needs to be looked up 24/7? Some years ago, if you wanted to make use of a surveillance system, you had to spend loads of money and pay a maintenance and surveillance company a large sum every month.
Keep an eye on your home from your phone
Nowadays, with an old Android smartphone and a specific application, we've got enough, although it will obviously never be exactly the same. For instance, the iMax Webcam app allows us to easily install a system capable of controlling the room where the phone is located for 24 hours. We obviously need two devices and to install the APK on them both, one to be used as the surveillance camera and that should be placed in the room to be watched and the other one to allow the user to control the images at any time of the day.
Although it will always be safer to install a few real cameras, iMax Webcam can help you to catch a few intruders or check on your kid to see if he's sleeping or not, as if it were a baby monitor.
