It incorporates motion detector, and the developer sells hardware accessories for the terminals, such as a tripod, so that uses can hold the iPhone with the camera pointing at the correct location.
PALO ALTO, USA – From time to time it happens: we change our smartphone, which we already judge too old to run apps we want, and we run into the problem that they we’re paid too little for our former handset, but we don’t know what to do with it either, although we’d like to keep it.
Sometimes, these devices end up as an audio/video reproducer, a portable hard disk if they have enough storage, or even as a secondary telephone for when we go to the beach, on a hike or to other environments where the new smartphone could be at risk due to dust, liquids or inclement weather. Now, for the owners of an Apple mobile device (iPhone and iPad), there is another option: turn it into a security camera.
Presence by People Power is an app for iPhone/iPad that allows users to turn the device into an IP camera, whose images are accessible from other devices like, for instance, the mobile phone that one keeps in the pocket at all times.
It can be set up to detect motion and warn users, becoming in this way a very economic security camera, considering that the price of a complete video surveillance system is not too expensive but it is not cheap either.
Through the application, the developer also sells a series of hardware extras that helps to make it more useful, facilitating the task of setting up a video surveillance system. One can find extras available such as tripods, cases, or magnifying glasses to place in front of the camera’s lens.
