Technology has always had our back. From the invention of the mobile phone to the invention of the iPhone, we always knew we could count on these devices to make our days easier and more fun.

But with the increasingly faster progress of technology also means that each year a new, better cell phone comes out, coercing us to purchase it, building up a stash of old phones laying around in our home. They seem to hold some kind of intrinsic value and we can’t seem to force ourselves to sell them off. The Household Hacker is here to show you how you can put these old devices to work to secure your home.

There are several apps that you can use for this purpose, but our trusty hacker will stick the Presence and Alfred. Both apps function the same, in the sense that any device you have can be used as a camera or a viewer. You can also use your computer to tap into the camera feed, so you have plenty of options.

There are plenty of ways to make a phone stand, but for this purpose, HH used mini clamps what did the job. Make sure they have soft spots so that they don’t damage the phone and that they are not too strong either. Set up your main phone as a viewer and don’t forget to plug the camera in, so that the stream doesn’t break off when the battery dies.

Also, both apps have motion detection, but you have to turn it on first. You can set up how often should the app send you push notifications so that you can stay up to date with stuff happening at home.
