Using camera surveillance to monitor your home, office, pets and even children is a practical way to maintain security on the things that matter while being able to accomplish other tasks such as traveling, working, or making dinner. But sadly, a CCTV system can be quite expensive and sometimes unaffordable. That’s why we’ve brought you a solution for you to be able to monitor everything you need by using your old smartphones and tablets as a camera. Of course, we’re talking about the Home Security Camera Alfred app. And today we’ll show you to download it on your devices and all the features you can take advantage of.
