Ratings and Reviews
Great Use for old phones!
This app is terrific. Turns your old phone into a very functional security/nanny cam.
It’s best to leave it connected to a charger and obviously plugged in. However if you want to see what’s going on and want mor covert functionality the battery will last for a few hours. I have the basic plan and it’s good other than a bit slow but for free I’m not complaining. Even the upgrade to Pro is reasonable but I just want to keep an eye on the inside of my safe. If others have access to your valuables/guns/jewelry/cash etc this is a great way to monitor who is in there and what they are doing. I caught someone in there that shouldn’t have been. If it wasn’t for this app I would have never known. Can’t say enough about the functionality. 5 stars all the way. Just remember if your using an older phone the app may feel clunky and slow but it could be the phone you’re using. Also be sure all phones/cams are on the same WiFi connection if you have 2.5 and 5 WiFi.
NO internet—works awesome!!
We used this on our old iPhones and it worked great. Got immediate notifications when the camera detected movement. We have NO internet where we live and so-so cell services with ATT and Verizon. The app worked as stated & we had video evidence of UPS or Fed-Ex, other people walking around house outside. Our phones gave out & we now are using our iPads. For people who don’t have internet & can’t get the wi-fi security cameras that are out there it’s a perfect solution. You would think that in today’s technology world there would be more of this type of service but we the people who don’t have high speed internet are left out in the cold to figure all this out. There are many services that claim they can monitor over cell service but all that we have found aren’t available in our area. It is the perfect app for all of us who choose to live out away from town in our own paradise without internet. Amen to Prescence!!
Too long of a wait for motion detection
I applaud the developers of this app and would like to use it and take advantage of their other security devices but there is one major shortfall preventing me from that. It appears that even with Pro, it isn't possible to set the wait time for recording following motion detection to less than 5 seconds (even though 1, 2, 3, and 4 are on the selector, it keeps springing back to 5). My driveway is 75' long, but both the UPS guy (walking from the road) and the lazy cat from next door get almost to my porch before the recording starts. I back down my driveway from the road, all of which is in the camera's sights, but only see the hood of my truck as it disappears beside my house. All I ever see in these recordings is the tail end of what just happened. This is all with detecting "normal-sized" movements. It would benefit from shorter wait times on motion detection (at least in the paid version, although a competitor offers this for free) and also a detection grid to limit triggering by things that will never be significant like wind-blown tree limbs (also offered by a competitor).
