How To Turn Your Smartphone Into A Home Security Camera
(3.8k )
Setting up a simple home security camera is a sure way to monitor your house when you're not around. A dedicated system is great, but economically, you can use an old, spare smartphone that you have around.

Notwithstanding, you can also purchase an indoor camera that is actually made for such purpose. For example, we have Nest Cam as a good option but $200 is bit much. Instead, you can get a spare smartphone that you can turn into a home security camera.

This action can only be carried out with an app called Manything which you can install both on your old phone (the Camera) and your current phone ( the Viewer). The app is available for
Android and IOS, although the Android version is still in beta. Thankfully, it will work fine on most Android devices. Try it out first to ensure the camera functionality of your phone.

Manything is free to use for 1 camera and camera version. But anything has many paid services you might like. When you first sign up, you'll get a free month of Manything's best plan, but after that, you can either use their free plan or subscribe to a cheaper plan. Here's what Manything offers:

The $2.99/month plan isn’t a bad way to go. It provides one camera and stores your recordings for up to two days, which is plenty of time for you to view and save them.

Once you download and install the app on your spare smartphone, tap on “Register” at the bottom to get started.

Enter your email address and create a password to use with Manything. Tap on “Register” when done.

Next, tap on “Camera”.

You might get pop-ups of the app asking permission to access your phone’s camera and microphone. Tap “OK” on these.

After that, the camera interface will pop up. You can begin right away by pressing the red record button to begin monitoring your home. From here, you can prop up your smartphone against a ledge of some sort, or get a small tripod and phone holder. Something like the
Joby GripTight Micro Stand would be perfect. You’ll also want to make sure that the phone is plugged into a power source so that its battery doesn’t die during the day.

With that setup, download and install the Manything app on your main smartphone. The app works cross-platform, meaning that you can have an Android device set up as a camera and an iPhone as the viewer, or vice versa.

When you open the app, tap “Log in” at the bottom and enter the email address and password you signed up with.

Tap on “Viewer"

The spare smartphone that you set up should show up in the list.

Tapping on it will bring up the viewer where you’ll get a real-time view of what’s going on. You’ll also see a list of recordings below that if the motion was detected. These recordings are uploaded to the cloud (a.k.a. Manything’s servers).

Tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner to view settings.
