Tips For Using Your Phone For Safety


Smartphones are pretty amazing tools that most people don't give much thought to. The computer power alone is several times greater than the mainframes they used to launch the first space missions with. With all of this raw computing power in your pocket, there is a lot more you can do with it than play fun little apps and games. Here are a few tips on how you can use your phone for security purposes.

Camera Feeds

With IP cameras being sold for so cheap, it's a no-brainer to install some cameras around your property. Certain manufacturers make camera installs super easy as they work off of wifi signals and don't even have to be hard wired in. Once you have several IP cameras installed, you need a hub to be able to view and get alerts when something happens within view. For this, there are several security IP camera apps you can install on your smartphone.

As long as you are on the same wifi network as your cameras, these apps make it very easy to add new cameras, and even set up tactical response solutions to call for help is something serious happens while you are away.

Notifications can also be set up to send you a text message or alert you in the app if movement or a person is spotted on your camera based on the parameters you have set up.

Alerts

If you get into trouble, sometimes you can't call 911 without someone being alerted. There are many response solutions that exist for phones where you can literally tap an icon on your main phone desktop to alert authorities that you need help. This is a very good thing to have at your disposal if you travel, or if you are with a group of people who are making you nervous. Knowing that you can discreetly call for help can give you the comfort that you need next time you call for that ride share, or when deciding to go to a party.

As you can see, smartphones can utilize their power and features to do more than just browse the internet and play apps. Unlocking the potential of your smartphone for security reasons can give you an oversight of your property wherever you are. As long as you have your phone in your pocket, you can keep an eye on things, which is perfect for people who do a lot of traveling and want to make sure their home base is safe.
