Time:12/17 2015 02:55

Introduction

Just because you aren't home doesn't mean you can keep your house safe and secure, and be on top of it. The AtHome Camera Free app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a way to use video surveillance and see what's going whenever they're not home. Go ahead and check in any time you want; the app even has motion detection, giving you an added sense of security. The idea is the app is not only handy but can even replace the need of a very expensive system.

Check In Anytime

Now you can check in and ensure your home is safe and secure right from your mobile device. The AtHome Camera Free app provides users with a remote video surveillance solution that can take the place of other expensive systems. The app requires WiFi or 3G/4G to give users live video for remote monitoring. Don't worry: your information is always private and secure as the authentication connections are encrypted. There are a number of features built into the app much like a traditional home monitoring system would allow.

The app offers users a free trial so that you can see how it works before you decide if you want to use it. During this free trial there are no restrictions. The app has just been updated with bug fixes, enhancements, and improvements. Unfortunately the app doesn’t seem to be hitting the right mark with users who have given it just 2.5 out of five stars. Perhaps it’s time for more updates.

The Surveillance Experience

Use the AtHome Camera Free app to not just watch who is coming and going from your home but even to check on your pets and kids while you're out. There is a motion-detection feature that kicks in when it sense motions. After it kicks in it will make a 30 second video recording that will then be emailed to you and you are sent a push notification. There is a two-way talking function, set up pre-scheduled recordings as specific times of day, and you can set your computer to go into hibernation and wake up. The app also supports multiple platforms to make it more versatile.

The app itself is streamlined and simple so that you can check in with loved ones and check up on your home quickly and easily. The menu is user-friendly and uncluttered so that you can focus on the video stream itself.
