How To Turn Your Phones Into WiFi Security Cameras

Thanks for checking this video out. I found all my old phones while doing some house cleaning and figured they should be put to use. If you are looking for links to the apps that were used, I am pasting them below this message. If you have any other app suggestions, let everyone know!

No wifi, could I plug old cell phone into laptop or a video camera plugged into ext. HD or laptop to store video as its being recorded like a dvr? I found a camera with audio video jacks but don't want to record to a DVD or vhs.

I have done this before with the presence app and it works well. But heed the warning of keeping the phone plugged and on 24/7, I did that and my iPhone battery swelled up and lifted my screen. I caught it in time before it blew up. I would say use it when leaving for a few hours or so, not when you go on vacation.

Not so much of a comparison about the two apps, but some great suggestions. I just tripped over these apps a day or so ago. I had no idea. But there are quite a few. I wanted to know which ones are the best and the most secure. Always worried things like these are susceptible to hackers.

The batteries will get hot on cellphones using them as a camera it's not the best idea to do most that they'll do is over heat pop or the phone will shut off from the battery over heating But you can use them as a camera I've tried it but won't again because the battery was hot once i checked the recording With flash off on recording it sucks with it on works fine but hard on the battery

Assuming your plan to utilize WiFi at your surveillance location you definitely want to keep the phone cooler to prolong the life of the battery and phone. What you need to do is activate 'Airplane mode' then manually toggle WiFi back on. This turns off the high draw cellular radio in your phone and allows MUCH less power to sustain a charge! (this works especially well in poor cell signal locations) As a bonus, you may find a cheap low milliamp charger now works just fine to keep your new phone camera working.

Isn't it bad to have these lithium batteries on charge all day? Yes they are old otherwise useless devices but does that not present some sort of fire risk? And some devices will just shutdown if the battery goes totally dead, in which case, these things wouldn't last very long? I like the idea but have too many concerns, unless you could somehow replace the internal battery with a super-capacitor, then you'd be good.

Even on high sensitivity, Alfred misses some motion events. It does not record the entire time that motion is in view. It has an "algorithm" that determines what is important. I'll try the other app you are using here. Also, a clip on wide angle lens is pretty necessary to get a good view because sometimes the phone does not have enough in view. Lastly, the heat caused two of my galaxy S4 batteries to swell (factory reset so no junk running in background) , so I run the app in my garage without the battery door.
