Your Smartphones: How to turn them to a CCTV.

But first, for this to work you need at least two smartphones, it can be either an Android or iPhone. This is so that one can be used as a CCTV and the other as a monitor. Another thing to prepare is an adapter charger or a power bank to charge the phone’s battery, and if you choose a charger then keep in mind to put the phone close to an electric power source. After the external preparations are ready, now let’s dive into the internal ones.

You need to set a different Google account from your main one or use an old account in case there will be problems regarding your private information from using the CCTV. After your account is ready, download an app called Alfred Home Security Camera from Playstore or AppStore. Now all you have to do is log into the app with your Google account and choose the type you preferred in each smartphone.
