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!
