3 Steps to Turn Your Old Smartphone into a Security Camera - CybraryDo you have an old Smartphone laying around? Turn it into a security camera.

 Follow these 3 steps:
  1. Download IP Webcam from PlayStore onto your device
  2. Launch the application and adjust the settings (this depends on what you want). Navigate to the bottom and click Start Server.
  3. Next, you'll get an IP address from the application. You can simply type the address in your browser or you can download software on your PC (Webcam Watcher) to watch your security camera.
Webcam Watcher lets you watch up to 6 cameras at a time and there are many useful settings you can change in the program.Finally, leave your mobile phone connected to a charger and maintain an Internet connection through WiFi or Mobile Data. You'll have a view of what's happening at your house while you're at work or hanging out with friends.Please note: I found this type of information several years ago on the web and wanted to share it with you. Thanks and have fun!
