    Thanks for checking this video out. I found all my old phones while doing some house cleaning and figured they should be put to use. If you are looking for links to the apps that were used, I am pasting them below this message. If you have any other app suggestions, let everyone know!

    This sounds like a great and cheap/free security system at first but I'm not even going to bother with it if the battery and phone can overheat to cause fire. Not worth the risk.

    Sure, set up some lithium battery bombs around your home. Thats what these are, constantly plugged in they are a disaster waiting to happen.

    Be sure to inspect the old phones for heat or swelling which are signs of potential fire danger from the old batteries.

    Well I've tried it myself to watch my car and it drained the phone battery within an hour so unless you keep it plugged it into the mains while it's records it's not a logical

    I’ve done this with multiple phones and it has broken 3 of them now. See, you have to keep the phone plugged in so the battery doesn’t die while you’re gone. Once it’s at 100% and you leave it plugged in, it’s damaging your battery. This caused my batteries to expand and push the screen out of my iphones.

    So unless you want to keep paying to replace batteries, I’d just invest in a camera you can connect to WiFi

    Here's something… An older LG G4 has a night mode and manual camera settings that show incredible pictures in the dark so anyone with this phone might have an advantage at night.

    Overheating of a continuously plugged phone might burst into flames and the carton box or wooden walls might serve as fuel. So that when you return home, there’s no more home to go back to.😆

    I didn't use the Presence ,but I'm using the Alfred for many years , it's awesome app ,the only issue I have ,the proper motion detector available in paid version only which is expensive ( 3$/month 😔) l got alot of false notifications aday because of the poor motion detector in free version.
    I will try the presence soon . thank you for your recommendation.👍
    UPDATE:
    No for PRESENCE 100% rubbish compare to Alfred.I
    prefer to have Alfred's false notifications than to have no notifications at all 🤔
    Took 3hours of my time to fix the Presence but still unbelievably shit.

    I have been using Alfred for a while now. The bad thing about it if you have it looking outside if a blade of grass moves or a shadow moves you get the notification that something happened. I constantly get them it stays on 99 notifications all the time.

    The video didn't address a couple of key issues which I've noted a number of people asking about on google play store (and other) reviews but never getting simple/direct answers…
    1) is it REQUIRED the old repurposed phone have a SIM card with an active cellphone account to perform a JUST camera monitoring function? Forget all the messaging.
    2) Does the Alfred or AtHome setup allow for direct
    OldPhone > local WiFi /router > NewPhone
    and/or
    OldPhone > local WiFi /router > Computer
    connectivity, or does everything have to pass through a 3rd party cloud storage server?
    3) Does the "new" phone technically have to have a SIM and be active on a mobile carrier just to receive video from the "old" phone in this kind of local setup?

    Do ANY security camera app tools provide a means of setting up the old phone as a live streaming video source for the new phone (or an on-network computer) without going through a cellphone carrier and without requiring the video data be sent to a 3rd part cloud service?

    Specific example, one has an old LG D500 (Android 4.4) phone that does NOT have a SIM card and is NOT associated with any active cellphone carrier/provider. All functionality works fine, just can't make non-911 calls or send messages via a phone carrier with it (e.g. cam, wifi, internet via wifi, bluetooth, etc all work fine without having a SIM card and without being connected to a carrier)
    The network is an local Arris SBG6900ac modem/router (and/or any number of other WiFi high-speed routers one might use)
    and,
    The "new" phone is an Galaxy S7 (Android 8.0) that is on an active cellphone carrier account (e.g. Tmobile), and 2 PCs running Win7-64bit Pro, and Win10-64bit HOME.

    I have 4 ghosts/spirits in my home. I don't need security.

    I would put up a sign "Beware of the ghosts" but that would spoil the fun.

    Good video but not much info on the app features. For example, does Presence support multiple cameras like Alfred does? I have used Alfred for a while and can probably list 10 things I don't really care for, ads being one of them for sure.
