I always consider my iPhone to be a multi-faceted device. Whether it’s accessing the web, listening to music, watching my favorite videos or even teaching my daughter how to learn alphabets or numbers, everything works like a charm on my iPhone. I was recently looking to secure my home with an alarm system when I stumbled across the Witness Remote for iPhone app. Thanks to this app, my iPhone and Mac, I now have a foolproof burglar alarm system at my home.
Developed by Orbicule, Witness for iPhone is a surveillance app that turns your Mac’s camera into a home alarm. The Witness app runs in the background on your Mac and starts recording video or photos if it detects any activity. The idea is simple, turn your Mac into a motion sensor device and propagate all captured information remotely to your iPhone. While it’s no match for a sophisticated burglar alarm system, it’s a good alternative for people who want to save a few bucks on their home safety.
