SALIENT EYE // ANDROID // Free
If you’ve ever wanted to set up an inexpensive home monitoring system to keep an eye on your house while you’re away, then Salient Eye is the app for you - with a few caveats. The main thing to keep in mind here is that rather than offering you real time monitoring, like other ( costly) solutions, Salient Eye instead records video and then texts or emails you links to check out the footage. That may not work for some people, but I can think of several instances where it’d be useful. Next up, you need to have a spare Android device running version 2.2 or higher that’s got a built- in camera, since that’ll be acting as your recording device. While it’s likely that many people have some old tablets or phones around the house, not everyone is going to have that luxury. If you meet the requirements, and have an active Android device to load the companion app onto so you can activate/ deactivate the camera remotely, then Salient Eye is worth checking out!
