Haven – turn your old phone into a security device

Safety is important to everyone but unfortunately, not everyone is safe. For those that find themselves in insecure positions in life, Haven is the app that can turn an old smartphone into a discreet security device

This app uses the phones onboard sensors and hardware to track changes in the environment and alert the user to possible security risks. Your camera and microphone are used to pick up motion and sound, for example. The events are logged on the phone and you can get notifications of events or just look at them later.

This is an interesting concept that may be of some worth to people who are in unsafe living situations, journalists who are out on a story, or any number of people who may be targeted by others due to their lifestyles. You could also just use this to see if you cat is getting into treats while you’re away. Haven is a free app available in the Play store.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
