Presence: Free smart home motion sec… - App Review



The App is marketed as a security device which will monitor a presence, alert on motion detection, 2-way communication, and is especially useful as a way of recycling 'old' iPhones.

There is so much more to it than that.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
There is a little video for you to watch as a new user and then you'll need to sign up, which involves an e-mail address and a password.

The next thing you need to do is agree to the terms and conditions (considering of how it might be used, a bit of backside covering seems only reasonable).

And before the fun starts, you need to decide whether the device you are holding is to be used as remote control, or camera. This is whether it is sending or receiving an image.

We'll set up something extremely simple so that you get the hang of it. Run the Presence App and choose to use your (old) iOS device as a camera. Now Click here (the address is https://app.presencepro.com/signin.html) on your PC, and sign in using the account you have just set up.

You can now see whatever you point the iOS device at on your PC.

This is just to give you a small idea of what this App and indeed system, are capable of.

You can just as easily use another iOS device as a the 'viewer', and can have more 'cameras'.

Cost
The App Costs absolutely nothing, although there are in App purchases for additional functions.

Indispensability
I can't believe that I only recently found out about this App! It's absolutely brilliant (this review is clearly being written back to front); just get it.

Forget about security (you know what I mean), just think of the countless ways it could be used. I recently used it to find the source of a water leak at an inaccessible location (with the help of some duct tape and a ski pole (haven't got a selfie stick); the possibilities are endless.

Dependability
If you've followed the instructions, you are already convinced.

Security
This App is about security!

It does need access to your camera (essential) and microphone, otherwise there's no real use in having it.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Brilliant and indispensable.
