If you’ve ever felt the need for a security camera in or outside your home, but didn’t want to spend too much, there is a much more cost effective option. AtHome Camera paired with AtHome Video Streamer. These two apps allow you to use an old or secondary android device as a security camera instead of just tossing it in the trash. You would download the Camera on your main android device and Video Streamer on your secondary. Daniel Mordukhayev said “When I got my Nexus 6P, I was gonna give my Galaxy S2 Note away but now I think I’ll keep it as a camera for my room.”
AtHome may seem like your average app, but it comes filled with features. For starters you’re able to take videos and pictures through your secondary camera and save them on your primary device. In addition you can speak through your secondary with a press of a button, and remotely control your flashlight to suit darker settings. A motion sensor is also implemented and sends alerts to your phone whenever motion is detected. For no extra cost AtHome Camera is a more than capable alternative to a more expensive security camera, so think twice before throwing your old android device in the trash!
