Presence app

In fact, you can even turn your tablet or iPod Touch into a remote security camera. This can be accomplished using Presence, an app which essentially turns your smartphone or tablet into a video camera which can not only record video but can also capture audio. In fact, thanks to the app, your device can even track an object’s motion.

According to the CEO of People Power, the company that has created the app, “Essentially we give you an inexpensive security system that you can use to monitor your house, or help you watch your kids, cats, elderly relatives or act as a baby or nanny cam.”

Conventionally, you have to spend a substantial amount of money to prop up a home monitoring system. But ‘Presence’ makes the entire process very inexpensive, while at the same time offering you full functionality. To make use of the app, you simply have to download and install it on your smartphone.

To use it for home monitoring purposes, you need at least two smartphones. For instance, if you have two iPhone, you will need to install it on both so that one would serve as the remote camera while the other would display the feed from the first iPhone.

Another very simple app lets Android users get electricity meter readings in real-time, allowing them to monitor the electricity consumption of different electric devices. It is very interesting to note that apps developer are coming up with such uses for smartphones and tablets, allowing the users to leverage their everyday hardware for sophisticated tasks.
