Home security apps are flooding the market because there seems to be a need for on the go security solutions. More and more big players are moving to the digital world and it can get extremely confusing on what app to choose. We have compiled a list of the best Android and iOS security apps; along with the pros and cons of each app. The list is based on extensive research and a tad bit of subjective opinion; so if you a find app that is better than the ones we suggested, then kindly let us know about the app in the comment section.
Ivideon is a new player in the android market and has taken the marketplace by storm. The app has some of the best security features we have seen. The best part about the app is that it can connect to a camera and relay back the audio via the internet. This may not seem like a big deal, but most security apps only relay the video and the audio feature is a personal favourite for all of us here. In addition, the app also has cloud backup and storage. The only cons about the app are that sometimes the app faces bug and shutdown issues, but we are sure that these issues will be fixed in the next update.
The Reolink has around 2.5 million active users and is one of the most popular home security apps on the google play store. The best part about the app is that it is extremely slick and efficient. Most Home security apps would require a lot of configuration, but the reolink only requires you to connect with the security camera. The pros of using this app are definitely the great user interface, motion triggers and remote access. The con of using this app is that this app does not work with any other home security system, for now it is only security camera friendly. And that is said to be rectified soon. We believe that we have not seen the end of the reolink and that the security camera feature is only the tip of the iceberg.
How can we forget iOS users? The best part of this app is that it turns your old iPhones and iPads into home security systems. The thing with iOS users is that people keep buying the next version as soon as it gets out and these phones are forgotten in some closet. Take those old phones out and transform your house into a secure place. The app can run on almost any iOS device and can capture videos and is motion sensitive. The biggest con that we were able to uncover is that there is only about 50MB of cloud storage available.
