If you have a house that will be empty when you’re traveling, you’ll like Alfred!
Alfred is a free app and the only hardware it needs is an old smartphone or tablet that you’re not using anymore. Your house will also need a good, always on, Internet connection with WiFi. It started as an Android only App but recently released an iOS version. The Android version has a few more features, but both work.
- Using an old phone or tablet, connect to WiFi and download the Alfred App from the play store. Install Alfred and log in using your Google account.
- Set that phone in a location where it has a good view of what you want to watch, plug it into power and turn on the Alfred app. This is your camera – just leave it on, using Alfred, all the time.
- With your current Android phone, install Alfred and log in to your google account so you can view what the camera(s) are seeing – this phone is your viewer.
