    Love it. Works like it should. Perfect for me. Thanks so much!!! Only issue is battery drain, if you're going to use it you have to plug the phone into a really good charger, half my chargers I come home to find the phone charging and turned off because it actually died while charging, that's how much battery it uses. Also, when I pick up my camera phone the screen is unlocked, kind of a security issue if a burglar picks up the phone and the screen is already unlocked.

    alfred video home surveillance camera/baby monitor I love the app. It (almost always) works great. Recently, I've been getting a login error on app launch. The error is, "Failed to sign in. (3001)". It suggests verifying user name and password, and device date and time are correct. It also says tomake sure Google play services are up to date. I verified all. Then there are 2 options. To sign out and to retry. Retry doesn't succeed. I can log out and log back in and it connects. I tried sending an error report in the app too.

  3. John Neals-avatar

    I've been playing with this app for a while now. It works very well. The only issues I've had have been phone related, and once those were sorted, I interact very few times with the camera side, and it just works. I would have to stretch to come up with a downside, and that would be the adds REQUIRE you to close them before continuing. When you are in the middle of determining if someone is prowling around, the last thing you should have to do is mess with an ad. Very good app overall.

    I tried hard this app to work. It always log out. I renewed my subscription last February. I am a subscriber since when. If you cannot fixed it then please refund my money. I follow your suggestion to uninstall and install, I did it over and over again. I don't want to have a heart attack dealing with it anymore, please refund my money. I will gived it five star because it worked for how many years but now not anymore. Please refund my money if you cannot fixed it. Thanks

    Awesome app! The only thing I can really see that would really help(especially the free version) would be to be able to switch between cameras while in one camera screen. Other than that I have no complaints. I gave it 4 stars because you cant toggle between cameras without going to the main menu.

  6. Todd Silimperi-avatar

    ALFRED DEVELOPERS: "Reuse Old Phone as Home Security Camera!" Google Play store when trying to install current app on OLD PHONE: "App not compatible with your device." Current Phone when trying to link to old phone: "App version no longer supported. Please update to current version." So if your phone is TOO old, it won't work. Luckily I have another less-old phone that is apparently compatible with the latest app version. When it works, it's great. But sometimes I get a whole bunch of repeated "false triggers". Usually, restarting old phone will stop the triggers. I'd also like to see a 30-second delay when I set the camera, so I can leave the area without triggering a notification. You know, the way a home security system gives you time to leave the house before the system is armed. Ads are minimal and not annoying.

    You're right. The connection problem was not because of the old Android version, but it seems that you somehow blocked Iran. If I enable a VPN, it successfully connects. But a VPN is unreliable, especially because it doesn't reconnect automatically if the phone resets. Would you please unblock Iran? Thank you.

  8. mii car-avatar

    So a major problem is not having a toggle for your so called "power saving mode". In fact it kills the battery as the screen randomly turns back on and quickly kills the battery. Also it randomly and frequently goes offline for no reason at all! Leaving my home unmonitored unless there is someone there to tap the screen and it goes back online...again...this doesn't make sense. i have fixed it with a 3rd party app that keeps the screen off unless i wave at the prox sensor 3 well now...other then the random disconnect for no reason. that still makes zero sense... UPDATE: now my viewing phone is logging me out randomly just like the camera phones have been. it doesn't matter how many times i log in/out...still tells me ive logged out (when i haven't).

  9. Cindy Sarver-avatar

    This is fantastic app! It's so easy to set up a puppy could do it. I use Alfred to gather information and find out who is lying to me. I suspected that one of my roommates was stealing from me but had no proof. So i set my Alfred cam up and went about my business as usual. I discovered that while I was showering, my roommate was sneaking into my room and taking cigarettes from my purse! Also caught the dog sleeping on my bed and peeing in the corner, because he neglected to shut door properly!

    Update : 👎 really bad app, do NOT install, I wanted to pay for the PRO version, but with even free features not working, I don't trust it. Live camera never works despite strong reliable Wi-Fi. Horrible experience with TOO MANY ADS, and worrisome false positives because it could be NEGLECTING ACTUAL MOTION! Doesn't really work well. Camera always goes offline after 5 seconds of live stream. I will change app when I get to the location with the phone. I really wish I did more tests. 🙁

    Motion detection with premium sucks even during the day. It's a good novelty item but if you are serious about security this isn't the app for you, besides someone could use a WiFi Jammer and render your surveillance useless. CCTV is your best option and I would say this would get you thru in a pinch by I would be lying. There are other better apps out there. 2 years ago it was great but not anymore. The environment is bright day outside, best conditions.

    OH YEAY, i have three old phones or one is ah I-PHONE 4c and the other two are LGL33L,and ZTE-Z558VL. Put the App in all of them at the same time fowlloed the steps on all them turned one in the viewer mode the two in to cams all at the same time on all phones. Abracadabra and there we go all done,up and runing.COOL love it no problems nothing wrong were ready to go.Chow!,see ya on the flip side(old school saying for those that are to joung to remember it,It means the other side of a .record

  13. Craig Lawrence-avatar

    So-so. Easy to set up but does not take full advantage of camera. Unable to zoom and even though phone has a very good camera, the image is not particularly clear when viewing landscape settings (yard and garden). Taking advantage of the cameras zoom function might help. Also, I don't mind ads, but they are presented in an obtrusive manner.

  14. baby jizzle-avatar

    I love this app, i really do. But since the update some of my motion detection recordings are just pictures, and sometimes when I'm watching it live it seems like it glitches or something cuz when it shows noone there all of a sudden the person is there sitting down. So when it glitched out (or wutever it did) a lot of movement was missed. .. not cool. Im trying to make sure no one is stealing in my room...hope yall can improve it please and thanx. I refuse to use any other surveillance app

  15. aaron acosta-avatar

    False Advertisement, and robbery. I pay for the premium version which is supposed include HD Video recording and viewing. But it only records SD video resolution of 480p which is (640 x 480 pixels) I have tried using various different phones and same result. All phones I tried have at least a 1080p camera, I also tried this on my Note 10 Plus and only records in 480p. There were a couple of complaints on their official website but the complainers just get an unclear answer. This is false advert.

  16. JL Wallace-avatar

    Just started using it a couple days ago. It doesn't seem to record everything. Just went outside, and there was no recording of it whatsoever. Not really happy with that because I have been harassed at my apartment complex and I'm trying to get proof because I'm really uneasy about it. If it isn't going to record everything then what's the point? Cool idea. It's worked but concerned it didn't record my stepping in front of it just moments ago.

  17. N0t Here-avatar

    Perfect for what I needed at 4 and free The ads aren't too bad for what you are getting in return, cloud storage, notifications of motions and battery saver mode, it's great if you keep the camera phone plugged to a power bank using, Xfinity, or free WiFi works too home wifi works best but you can put these app installed phone's anywhere and they have better imagery them most cheap surveillance cams cause phone have great mega pixel counts and resolution these days even the old ones lol

  18. Kiki Donovan-avatar

    Was working great, then the most recent update happened, and can't watch live video now. UPDATE: It is now working and I do love this app. For those that have a mobile security with VPN, on the device used as a camera, you need to disable it on the device used as a camera, but not 9n the device used as the viewer.

  19. Vampyre Knight-avatar

    So easy to set up .once done just sit back .. I used it so I can watch over my 3d printer at work while I do lots of other things,,brilliant

  20. Maddie Reed-avatar

    This is an amazing app! Was supposed to make sure my niece's weren't getting into any trouble while I was in my room wasn't really expecting this app to work till it did!!! It's perfect for when your out somewhere and want to make sure the house is doing alright! Only bad thing is that u need two phones and must have the one taking video plugged in or your phone might die! Other whys totally worth downloading!😛

  21. Richard Craft-avatar

    Easy to use ...there is an occasional hick up concerning the phone being used as camera , mostly due to the. Particular phones energy management .. but when you take in account there is a free side of the app and how many different types of phones that can be used with it. These minor issues are easy to forgo in giving it five stars

  22. Julienne Bryant-avatar

    Julienne Bryant


    Suddently need to sign in Everytime i open the app cause it says cameras are offline, even though the app is updated which causes me to have to sign in on all 3 of my devices every time .it's very frustrating considering I pay for the service as well...please fix this his issue..or I will have to unsubscribe.

  23. Zac Cook-avatar

    When it works right, it's great. Only problem is viewing the live feed it started just having a black screen and repeatedly saying connecting. Has no problem sensing motion or recording, so problem isn't with phones. Something's going on in app that won't let you watch live

  24. Aleksei Poliakov-avatar

    Aleksei Poliakov


    Exceptional for a free app! Flawlessly works between my pixel (viewer) and fire hd (recorder) for when I have to leave for a few days and need to keep an eye on my pets. It even has motion detection within free app! One thing I would like to have is a one time "buying" option to support the author. I use it maybe twice a year for a few days so a subscription does not really make sense (also I don't really need any new features), but I would be glad to pay like 5$ just to say "thank you".

  25. Appollo Scrapes-avatar

    Appollo Scrapes


    Very nice app. Works and functions just how it says. And it's free. Will not find another like this. Even the ads are not all that bad. Sometimes a little annoying but what do you expect with something that works so great and it's free. We got to give a little to take a little right. I get this app a five-star. Thank you guys 4 actually doing something the others claim to do only to be disappointed. There's no disappointment at all with this app. Wish the recording was a little bit longer but as

  26. Dalton Cook-avatar

    Very useful and love the features even in the free version. The ads, though... I know this is a free version and you need to make some money off it somehow but, wow, talk about obtrusive. You can't even close the full screen ads. If you try to hit the "X", 9 times out of 10, it takes you to the ad site anyway. For this alone, I'm docking stars. Again, I know this is free and I could upgrade and there are really no other options but I should at least be able to close/dismiss the ads properly.

  27. Hal Helmboldt-avatar

    Does exactly what it claims to do. I set this up in less than 10 minutes. I've used it for 5 minutes. I haven't attempted wifi away from my home using my "viewing" phone. The "camera" phone (my old phone) works perfectly well with this app, too. I am about to get into setting up motion detection and motion notification. So far, so good. I will update this a week from 3/20/2020 to let others know how this goes by that time.

  28. Bob Builder-avatar

    Doesn't work. Camera phone says it's connected to wifi and it is plugged into charger charging. Viewer phone says camera phone is using battery and is offline even though camera phone is plugged into a charger and connected to wifi and says online. Don't download this app, it just makes you want to Sandyhook a building. Also the report and issue feature doesn't work just loads forever.

  29. Christina Morales-avatar

    Christina Morales


    I've been using this app on my old phones for a year this month. My only problem, is that one of my phones is so old and not enough storage space, that I have to open the app every once in a while to make sure it's on/ active. Other than my phone being old, I have nothing but good to say about the Alfred app :)

  30. Richard Jameson-avatar

    Richard Jameson


    I love everything about the app in theory and still love it in reality except i too feel like i was scammed out of my pro subscription $ because the vid quality is still awful absolutely not HD of any kind. The "zoom" is virtually useless; you cant manipulate it or change it, you can only aim it and see if it is helpful or harmful to your goal. For example I got 1.5x or 2x or 2.5x on 1 or 2 phones each plus one phone only zooms 1.1x then they change around now so i never know whats what daily!

  31. Robert Rooney-avatar

    After sending multiple reports and waiting over a month I still have not been to get help with a basic camera issue they have basically put everything into a frequently-asked-questions hoping they never have to hear from you. I spent $30 on premium and it wasn't worth a dollar don't waste your money

  32. Richard Wolfie-avatar

    I've been using the app with premium features for almost 3 months now and I have not had any issues at all. I'm impressed with the ease of operation and how quickly I'm notified of the recorded events. The only issue I have (which is really a non-issue) is sometimes the recordings I delete, show back up. So I simply re-delete. All in all, it's a great app!

  33. Mats Wiren-avatar

    At this very moment I'm trying to monitor my dogs at home, and I just realised that the same loop is playing over and over, don't know for how long now. So the app has given notifications of motion, and i've been able to watch them. when i open the live feed, the same song plays all over again, followed by the same conversations (i left the radio on). On top of that the connection tends to be interrupted quite easily. Would like to get this fixed.

  34. Candyce Neel-avatar

    Better than a regular security camera. Hell, you could set one of these off in something that's kept charged with a solar panel and you could have cameras set up all over the place connected to Xfinity...would be Good to Go!! I used this when I felt suspicious about a certain person & sure enough, they busted out my car window. The police came, i showed them the video clip & that's all it took. JUST MAKE SURE YOU PUT A PASSWORD LOCK ON THE "CAMERA" PHONE. **10 STARS ON THE REALA**

  35. Lee-Roy Farrell-avatar

    Lee-Roy Farrell


    Very good app! It works perfectly and the adds do not drive you up a wall in the free version. A great option for monitoring kids, home security or, like in my case, monitoring your 3D printer. Its definitely a keeper.

  36. Caitlin Strong-avatar

    Really good quality, for both video and audio. Very pleasantly surprised, so glad I downloaded this app.

  37. Justin Trent-avatar

    It prompted when I left but not when I got home.I gave her 30 minutes I'm still connected to my home Wi-Fi it's still giving me detection notices and it's not telling me to turn it off. if I have to manually turn detection on and off for multiple cameras every time I come and go instead of just having a notification then it's really obnoxious in inconvenient and not a reliable source of security.

  38. Ray Perkins-avatar

    Had some trouble after a phone reset, as it wasn't compatible until I upgraded Google Play Service. Fine now. For some reason the phone resets about once a week, which likely isn't Alfred's fault. The main drawback is that phones don't have IR capability, so useless in the dark, unlike most security cameras.

  39. B. Lee-avatar

    App mostly works as advertised. Little to no information on various features(ie: the difference between Camera v1.0 vs v2.0). Some features just flat out don't work(reminder to activate motion detection when leaving home). As for troubleshooting, it's the usual runaround of reset/delete/reinstall app. With these issues this is still the best free app available. If only the advertisements weren't so aggressive it would get a higher rating. Oh and they don't read your feedback. Look for yourself.

  40. Lo Mo-avatar

    Best "home surveillance" app I've ran into yet. Have been using for about 2 months now with the $4.99 Premium in-app purchase, I vouch and approve it's set expectations. Highly recommend if you need a baby cam or just quick, affordable security. Could be 5/5 star rating if the app could hide in the background also. And yes, this is a real.comment from your fellow human consumer. Using on a Fire HD 8 and Google Pixel 4.

  41. Andrew Solomons-avatar

    Andrew Solomons


    Used old note 8 as camera for note 10+. It does what it says, but not good for real security. Cant complain about the price, but id be taking another 1/2 point if i could because of the non stop commercials which makes night monitoring difficult at best. I read a lot of bad reviews about the upgrade/ premium, so i think ill just skip it. It is however the only one that even works. Neat toy ....unfortunately, im going to probably have to spring for a real security system to accomplish my req

  42. Mike Dujmovic-avatar

    Easy setup just install app on any device, hardest part is positioning of phones. Works well with all old phones I've tried. Plug and play, hope new person detection works like it's suppose to bc alerts can get abundant, but that can be said about most camera setups

  43. MnGambit89-avatar

    Great app. Crashes every now and then if on all day. Sensitivity can be extremely annoying if on 'High'. Edit for answer: 4. Camera preview screen. It also would crash from the camera that's set up. It doesn't happen as frequently as before, but I still have that issue when the app is on all day (12+ hours)

  44. Demetri C-avatar

    It has been great... I have had the app for years... And I just now upgraded... And for the price it's worth it... Hell, use it for free first... I did four I know two to three years... and that was a good trial run.. and the better your old phone to our, the better the app works... And how far away and how good your Wi-Fi is... Makes a difference

  45. Makala D-avatar

    Was working really well, but recently constantly it's offline. I will check multiple times a day and it's always offline. I will correct this situation and then it seems to work until I leave my home network, then it says it's offline again. How can I resolve this issue? Will my camera still record activity in the house even if it's offline?

    Literally amazing if you have a good WiFi at home. Something to be kept in mind. Motion detector works great. You can even fully invest in a dedicated device just to also have a better quality view. The potential is limitless

  47. Harun Sultan-avatar

    Hi good apps.. im a premium user.. just want to ask if you can add the feature that can record and save to phone when there is no internet available.. just for premium user.. because i use wifi and some times the electricity off.. so it will still record and save to phone.. can it be done?

  48. B Robb-avatar

    Easy to use and it works even with the junky $10 prepaid Android phones. Reduced my rating since it seems to be taking my conversations and advertising towards them. I have it in my garage where I conduct business and those are specific conversations. Not surprised, but it's rude.

    The app has been working fine until about a month ago when i update it. Now it cuts off and stops sending live feed or reconds videos after a few minutes. It tells me to not press home button or power, and turn off the battery optimisation. I dont press them, the camera phone automatically goes into power saving mode after a period of time.Before I last updated it it was runnig fine for the last 5 years absolutely no problems, now this. Alfred please put out a new update, to fix it thanks.

  50. Ed Hoo-avatar

    Extremely unreliable. App will be working fine until it suddenly stops working for no apparent reason. At this point it requires intervention on the camera to fix. Needless to say this makes it quite useless as a security cam since if I was there I wouldn't need a security cam. It would be nice if it could work for the duration of a one week trip to give you some peace of mind. I'm a paid subscriber and this was a waste of money. I would happily pay more for something reliable.

  51. Sam Ramsey-avatar

    App works great but their practices are rip-offs. You would think that being a Alfred premium would come with some kind of benefits. Na they just remove the ads for you. You have to join their subscription service if you want any kind of perks. Which would be fine if the ad removal wasn't $17. And definitely less than two hours later Google is telling me to screw off cuz they're not even going to give me a refund.

  52. Jacob Hetrick-avatar

    This app started off pretty useful and I even purchased premium, but recently I've had a lot of problems with cameras going offline. I've tested multiple cameras on different wifi networks and after a couple hours, the camera will go offline and you can't wake it up without restarting the app on the recording device. I have missed some crucial moments due to this.

    It worked well for the first day and a half after that it keeps going offline and needs to be physically messed with which defeats the purpose of having a security camera if you need to be home to adjust it. I got it thinking it would last all week while we were out of town luckily in order to feed the dogs someone had stopped by but if not the damn thing would have been off for more than two days.

    It really needs work, but it could be the best remote camera app. It also has a better chance of running with the free version only because less data is sent right away and the paid version tries to send hd and gets held up. Id like to support them again, but the free version is just a far better chance of working.

  55. Kevin Koto-avatar

    2 minutes into Alfred and I'd say it's already been smooth as butter to use and the features are nice. We'll see if it keeps running like this. I have no problem going back to the other app Ive been using for a couple of years but I have a good feeling about Alfred. Definitely worth a try.

    Noooo! Why everytime i go to the events page leave, not close, the app does it now start from the begining. Lost two stars freezing again!!! Was having load issues. New update more or less fixed it. But still boo on th X out on device download. We want less steps not more. Plus sometimes the x doesnt appear right away. Maybe extend the length of the saved notification for about 1 sec. I dont want to be slowed down by having to x out. Do we really need another ad.

  57. Vinnu Wright-avatar

    Awesome app can't realy fault it ... only thing I didn't try was multiple cameras ... and the only think it's possibly missing is the ability to zoom the camera in from the viewer phone, but I don't think it's an important feature to be missing.... couldn't recommend this app more

  58. a pettit-avatar

    I have used this app since 2016 aaand I love it. I now have children and we moved to a new town, this app is perfect for a security camera to keep an eye in them in the yard. And so many other places! It's a really valuable resource!

  59. Andrew T-avatar

    Unreliable. It works great when it works but cameras go offline regularly and are unable to be fixed without physicaly waking the device.. even after disabling all power saving settings for the device. Tried running on 3 phones all plugged in with full batteries and they would all eventually go offline. For a while it was every 4 days or so, now it's after a couple hours. Subscription fees kind of suck.. and having to manually download every file, you can't download all or auto backu easy

    I finally feel peacefull knowing that i dont have to worry about buying expensive camera equipment to keep my room which i rent safe from anyone entering without me ever knowing ive had stuff gone missing in the past but im hoping this will help. This app hear does the work just as well and at a bargain with 3 kids and 1 on the way ive saved me a good amount of cash and would like to say thank you to the developers!!! Keep up the great work you guys truly make a difference!!

  61. Geof Phisher-avatar

    Why does app need to "TEST ACCESS TO PROTECTED STORAGE"? Phoney description. More accurately "Turn (NOT VERY OLD) phones into surveillance cameras". Forced inline update bypassed my "Do not autoupdate" to wreck my VERY OLD phones set up. Now less useful than tin cans and string. Alfred return to the batcave in shame. I suspect Alfred triggered gmail login security alerts trying to force updates.

  62. David Bonney-avatar

    Extremely easy to use and very effective. Home security for free. Great way to make use of your old mobiles and keep watch on an area in your home. Watch remotely from a pc or main mobile, easy.

  63. Patricia Buie-avatar

    Been using for about a year and it works most of the time. Got a message to update app and is asking for access to wearable devices data. Not sure why a security camera needs access to my Garmin data? Have to wonder if they are tracking users? Uh... how about no! Thanks but no thanks. Will be deleting app now.

  64. Apa Thetic-avatar

    What's going on? Last 3 days I cannot access live view without the annoying error message (3001) requiring a sign-in...WTH?? Will have to delete this app if this continues. The live view is no longer a live view with the time-consuming process of signing in EVERY time....

    This is a great app it helped me find 2 of my lost phones! I put the app to start the camera as soon as my phone restarts or is turned on and it showed me where my phone was and who had it without them knowing I was able to take a picture of their face and the surrounding's when I showed the person and told them to give back my phone or else I'll use force to get it back they gave it up and still took a little beating for lying but I recommend to everyone and the 2.0 camera is the best

  66. Betsy Barfield-avatar

    Is there a uninstall the updates for this app? I pay for premium and have for over a year ; I've had this app for over 2 years now and I have loved it all the way up until the past month or so. But now my motion detection is not recording whenever it should. And trying to view my recordings takes forever to load and getting to older recordings is almost impossible. Main issue is not recording like is was before thos update. Ive used the same devices for 2 years, please fix/ help.

    This works better then any of the other CCTV camera systems apps I've tried to date. I work as a Nightwatchman and setting up a couple of these watching a life feed has greatly improved my response time. I would, and will, recommend this product as the most cost-efficient effective way to protect against threats remotely.

    It keeps saying Your connection has stopped as LGL 722 DL is connected to the camera (1019) and cuts off. Have to restart it and it goes for about 5 seconds then stops again. Then goes for 30 second stops and so on and so on

    Greatly appreciated this free security.So amazing and puzzling how it is still free! Damn you need to try for yourself so you can be as safe and secure as I have felt since I put cameras up and started using this incredibly amazing app.Also works perfect.

  70. A Google user-avatar

    Use to rate this 5 stars... It has gotten very buggy. More bugs with each "update". No longer shows the number of videos recorded. Opens wrong video. When it notifys you there was motion and you select to watch it opens an old video etc etc... I am looking for a replacement for this once great app.

    The app is very simple and easy to use. Whether or not you get a good picture depends on what type of phone your using. I'm using the Lg Stylo 5 as my camera and the picture is great, clear, and the audio is amazing as well. Great work!! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!

    Easy peezy setting up and works perfectly at monitoring outside my front door. This Alfred Camera software puts two of my former Tracfones to good use. The ads appearing on the viewing phone svteen are not disruptive enough for me to complain about.

  73. Jon Firmin-avatar

    Super easy !!! Watch your house from anywhere and "see and hear" exactly who or whats going on !!! Check anytime, live or recorded motion and "listen" and talk back" Siren alert too...on demand...Fire Away.... Love this and works flawlessly for 3 years -!!! ***** 5 Stars 🎯👀👌

  74. Gavin Tweddle-avatar

    Works great. But every now and then I have to reset the camera, would love to have a remote reset option. The only issues currently is that the Battery Notification is NOT working currently 😞

    So far so good. Pretty straightforward. I got premium and I can afford it. I'm checking in on my kitten when I'm at work, when she goes to a particular window to look out. Good stuff. I'm thinking that I could DIY a similar thing for free, but for out-of-the-box functionality and some bells & whistles this is a good value.

  76. omgitzmo-avatar

    For the past couple of updates, my old Samsung Galaxy Fame fails to stay online longer than 2 minutes. Installed an APK, 2018 release and now has been online for 2 weeks and over. I thought updates were supposed to increase stability and reliability not drastically reduce them, guess I'll stay on the old update.

    I think this is pretty good. I used it to see where my mom hid the easter eggs and snickers. One thing though, it kept glitching out on me. By the way we celebrate easter the day before.

    Been using the free version for years now....only ever had issues when our Internet drops out or phone gets accidentally knocked over. Highly recommend and I am considering going premium as the extras could be useful. 10/10

  79. Shoaib Mamoon-avatar

    Great app. Works flawlessly on both phones. Very few ads while using the app which is fair for a free version. Hope they let 3 cameras for couples and also include 'flash on' feature, just being greedy. Lol

  80. r k-avatar

    Recently I have had a couple packages stolen from my home. I used and old phone to have as a front door camera. Alfred was super easy to set up and use. Great resolution and ease of functionality.

    Excellent, best app on here and app store for securing anything with a camera or old phone couple of gripes but hopefully will be sorted in development, thanks for a simple easy solution, I upgraded to premium as I was so impressed regards Alan

    Great except you have to have a bright light to see in the dark. It would be better if it had a lower light that would still make the images clear but not blurry without the blinding light

  83. Branden Lee-avatar

    **WARNING! DO NOT PAY FOR APP THINKING IT WILL FIX PROBLEMS OR WORK ANY BETTER. IT DOESN'T!** This would be a great app because of all it's features. BUT most clutch ones won't work PERIOD. Or work once, then stop for no reason. Or exist with little to no documentation on what they do or why you should use them. The AD system is a nightmare. IT WILL AUTO LAUNCH ADS. This app is a mess. Seriously. Take your time and HOLD OFF paying for any premium services till you're sure. I've seen enough bye

  84. Sally Owens-avatar

    I love this app! My only complaint (why I gave 4 stars) is that I can't activate person motion because it's only available in beta. I actually purchased this for the year because I thought it was a premium only feature :( But I would recommend the free version

  85. WA Randolph-avatar

    I have the camera set to record movements. I have a viewer unit set to display continuously what the camera is seeing during daylight hours. Unfortunately the camera unit does not record movements as long as the viewer unit is displaying what the camera unit is seeing.

  86. Hazardousdream-avatar

    3 stars because you didn't mention anywhere in the description that you need a really strong wifi connection for the camera phone? I had to move my router because it wasn't getting enough signal even tho it would go online no problem

  87. Jennifer Keating-Downs-avatar

    Jennifer Keating-Downs


    I really appreciate this app! It works! I love that I can see if my WiFi is not working and if my phone is not charging. That's so important when you're about to leave your house.

  88. Foster Kidd-avatar

    works great don't need to spend any money on expensive camera

  89. Marko Žankar-avatar

    Ok for the free part. Would buy a middle option if it was a single pay(not a subscription) that would enable full hd, zoom, remote turn on). Use it just to monitor 3d printer couple of times per month. Sticking with other options that have zoom in free version/single pay.

    Alfred has become one of my most usefull security tools over the last few years, its usefulness not only security-wise, but in logistics and for use in multiple situations, that I have come to rely on. I only write reviews for things that I strongly beleive in, the Alfred team, your doing great!

  91. Robin Oates-avatar

    I love this app, it's free for your basic security features and the motion detection is awesome. And I really like the notification reminder when you are leaving the area to set the motion detection.

  92. april verret-avatar

    I have used Alfred home security. I went a few months that I did not use Alfred. Then I just started back and I am so disappointed because I received 2 separate charges on my debit card of 29.99 each and I have no way to contact them. That is $60 stolen from me during a pandemic when it's needed the most. So what do I do?

  93. michael pacey-avatar

    I tried about 6 similar apps before finding this one all were a hassle to set up and none of them worked properly. Alfred however was a doddle to setup and works perfectly.

    Worked great between an old iPad and my Android phone. No fees and no accounts required other than Google. I love that it's peer-to-peer so you don't have to worry about your footage sitting on someone's server.

  97. D Maynard-avatar

    Junk app. camera always offline, connected to the same network as the viewer. same google accounts same moto g6 play phones same android version 9.0 same app version. Did not work at all. Not a substitute for an ip camera at all. Well at least it was free right?

    One of the Best Apps you can get on a smart phone, or any other smart device. The Best Survaliance App by far, no doubt about it. I love this App! Thanks Alfred Home Security App.! ; )

  99. R Blackwell-avatar

    Since your last update, I have to constantly sign in and out of the app to view the cameras. No issue before the update. Is this going to be fixed?

  100. Mitch King-avatar

    The app is cool, but there's no way I can warrant $5 pm for the full version. Especially with reliability issues still present such as accessing cams that just fail to show up without restarting the app.
