AtHome Camera Free: Turn Any Computer Into A Security Cam With Your iPhone

Ads by Google

With AtHome Camera Free, you can have your very own espionage-esque surveillance cam in the palm of your hand. No, it doesn’t allow you to set laser-firing booby traps for trespassers, but it does provide a practical way to keep an eye on your castle while you’re away.

The app is simple. Basically, it takes any camera that you have connected to your PC (like a webcam) or another iPhone and allows you to view it right from your own phone. It’s as simple as that! Granted, you could get a bit more technical with things by setting up multiple webcams all tied to one PC, effectively creating a cheap, efficient complete surveillance system.

AtHome Camera Free is at the mercy of wireless speeds and the current power status of your camera. However, it also comes with cool features like recording, motion detection, and email alerts. All of these are good aspects of a basic video security system.

While each camera is password-protected and associated with a personalized ID, you should be careful with who gets their hands on your devices. By offering remote access to a camera in your own home, there’s always the chance of an unwelcome observer taking a look at your place of residence.
