£free (IAPS) / An­droid, IOS You know that old phone you ban­ished to a drawer and oc­ca­sion­ally stum­ble upon while look­ing for your pass­port? “Look at it, with its tiny screen and pre­his­toric bezels!” you mock. “Never turn­ing that on again.” Wrong. That old phone is your new se­cu­rity/dog-watch­ing cam­era. Sim­ply down­load the Many­thing app to the dis­carded de­vice, open the cam­era, se­lect the ‘viewer’ op­tion on your cur­rent hand­set, and you’re off. Fol­low­ing a re­cent up­date, you can now zoom in on recorded video and jump to the ex­act date a clip was taken. For ab­so­lutely zilch, you get a live feed from one cam­era and alerts when mo­tion is de­tected, while opt­ing for a sub­scrip­tion makes clips ac­ces­si­ble from the cloud. It can’t of­fer pin-sharp res­o­lu­tion, but you won’t find an eas­ier route into DIY sur­veil­lance.
