Home Security Camera - Alfred

Alfred is a video monitor that allows you to check on your home from your smartphone or tablet, wherever you are, thanks to a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connection.
It’s very simple to use Alfred, you just need to install the app on your devices and select one of them to be the Camera and another to be the Viewer.


Alfred allows you to communicate directly with whoever in front of the Camera via the microphone of their device. This functionality sends your voice across. You can sing to your baby, talk to your baby, or deter an intruder.

**WiFi OR 3G/4G**

Check on your home even without Wifi connection. Alfred also works on 3G/4G


Alfred is compatible with the majority of smartphones and tablets, you won’t need to have two identical devices at home anymore! Consider looking at the Help Center for more information on the installation of Alfred.A WebViewer is also available to watch your video feeds from your computer.


Upon movements in front of the Camera, Alfred immediately detects motion and you will receive notifications with video clips on your Viewer. Motion Detection sensitivity can be set within the application settings.


If your Camera is watching over a dark place, try Alfred’s night vision. Or, turn on the flashlight on your Camera remotely from your Viewer device.


Motion detection videos are saved in the app for 7 days.


Your phone comes with two camera lenses. Switch from the front to the back camera remotely from your Viewer device.


Don’t miss a thing! Alfred shows the battery level of your Camera, as well as the signal quality.

Overall really nice app. Fair price for the service. Ability to turn on the phones flashlight is cool. Night vision works surprisingly good. Ability to record and review works well. But there are a few missing features. Ability to cast the stream to the TV or a Google Home Hub. No ability to change which camera on the phone is being used, I have a phone with a wide angle lens that can't be switched used. Wish framerate could be set manually, upto 30fps would be ideal.

Bottom line is that it works and very well! Saves on the expense of the purchase of a camera. I use an old cell phone no longer in use for my garage deliveries from Amazon. 2 1 22 Upon opening the app, Alfred reports there is and has been an updated version. Despite going to the Play store to effect this update as instructed, I'm unable to see of find the way to do it. I read that I'm not the only one with this issue. 5 12 22 And things just got a whole lot better with the current updates!!!

The concept is great - but the resolution of the free version is so poor that it makes it worthless. Don't bother installing it unless you intend to pay for the full service version - which is a monthly cost, not a one-off purchase. UPDATE: Apologies to the Devs, I believe the poor quality picture was entirely due to the poor WiFi coverage in the location where I put the camera. Once moved to a better location, the resolution was entirely acceptable.

this app is easy to use and very helpful. i can remotely control which camera my device uses. it even has some nice extra features like two-way mic and a remote- controlled siren. the paid version is a little heavy on the wallet bc it is a year subscription, but it really only comes down to about $5 per month, so all said, it's not really expensive, and it is worth the price. it may be unnecessary in many circumstances, though, because the free version is usually adequate for my purposes.

Have been using this app for several months and the free version alone has ALWAYS been reliable. The motion detection feature is impeccable and gives me great peace of mind. I would like to try out the paid version and, If I have any qualms at all, it's because I wad supposed to get 30 days of the paid version for a free trial period for completing a Twitter challenge. Apart from that, I LOVE THIS APP!!! ❤ GREAT WORK ALFRED TEAM 📷

Great, simple idea! Easy to use, great quality, FREE BASIC VERSION IS AWESOME!, you can also pay to upgrade to hd. The settings are very easy to understand, nothing too crazy. Offers power saver & motion detection. You can also record from viewer device. Loving it so far! Can't wait to catch my kitties up to no good, muahahah 💋🐾😺😎

Let me sett the record straight. 1. No, you don't need to leave your phone unlocked. Ensure your phone's settings aren't interfering if you're having trouble with this. 2. Memory issues are your fault, not the app's. 3. If you use low end devices for your cameras, expect low end results. Alfred App is the best, and I've been using it near two years without a single issue.

This app is very impressive and works flawlessly. It's very user friendly and easy to navigate. The video quality was a lot better than I had expected, a long with other useful features such as: remotely changing from front to rear camera view, turn the phones light on, rotate cameras image, ect. All these awesome features to use that will bring any old smart phone back to a daily used device, and it's completely FREE!!!!! I was so impressed that I would have bought the app.

Nit. S. Apr 9, 2022     

It's the best app of this kind that I've been able to find. The others were hot garbage. It's very well laid out and easy to use - but I've has big issues recently. I reinstalled on both devices and it's back to working. Lots of ads but they are silent and there's no timer, and the pro version is cheap. (Notes to devs: I think the summer time change broke my app. Also please add dark mode to the interface on both viewer and cameras. 100% black to save battery on OLED.)

Easy to install and setup, worked perfectly minutes after starting download! Finally found a use for all my old cell phones. I immediately signed up for the payment plan to get higher resolution, very happy with all the features. One year subscription is less than I would have paid for one security camera, and I'm using several old phones that have better resolution! Even my wife was impressed, and she is difficult to impress with technology. Thanks for the wicked cool app!

Just installed it and I'm trying it now. Love it so far. Great features. Update 2022-04-22: Having used this app for so long, made the biggest mistake of installing the update that said you can do continuous recording. I am not even interested in that feature. But after updating of the camera unit, the app crashes if you pick any setup menu option. I hope you are aware of this problem and going to fix it. Right now, the app is unusable.

Far. S. Apr 25, 2022     

it really only works when I'm home which defeats the purpose. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app on all devices several times and it's still only useful for a limited time.all are on my wifi at home I've done everything I can think of to get it to work but it won't. I did as suggested it improved slightly however they're not exactly reliable. if you suspect anything you have to definitely check them. it doesn't pick up all motion either.

Ang. M. Mar 23, 2022     

I needed something to increase my ability to monitor for safety concerns immediately while I research other more long term options and this app was the perfect solution. I'm using an old phone with a cracked, broken screen and no sim card to monitor my back yard. Thank you! This was even easier to set up than I thought it would be.

Went for a small vacation wanted some way to check up on the house at a cheap price, saw they had a free version decided to try it out. And it was exceptional, you can set up multiple cameras. Used old phones i no longer use as long as the camera works they can be set up. most of us has old phones so why not. The quality is decent on the free trial even records 5 secs with motion detection on. The paid version would come in handy even more so but is worth the money. Would reccomend. Great app.

Ros. A. Apr 28, 2022     

Installed it. Got it to work but had to factory reinstall my phone. Then I could not see any information in the settings for how to use the motion detection. I'm never going to pay for an app that is not intuitive on how or where the video motion detection files are located if anywhere . Horible app for something premium. When of they make it intuitive I will look bad at it one day

Jon. W. May 25, 2022     

Works well with my old LG stylus 4 as a dedicated camera. Frankly amazed at the features available on the free app. Lets you setup motion detection, recording, allows you to remotely switch from rear to front cameras, activate siren and light. You can also speak to someone via the speaker on the dedicated camera phone. Love it

jos. k. May 7, 2022     

It's good camera for whatever ur using it for. It's not even bad on the free app. Only 5.99 monthly for premium...and yearly is super cheap... Night vision,motion detector, audio recording. And all that is free right there. Anyways I usually dont write review ifi do it's short. Try it nothing to lose don't have to enter card info for free Verizon. this is my go too for sure Thank you Alfred

Dav. F. Apr 3, 2022     

I downloaded it yesterday. WOW! It works really well and so easy to set up on both iOS and Android. I'll experiment with it for a while and then subscribe. The price is worth it. Local home monitoring systems are $20/month vs. Alfred @ $30/year. Local systems have many more restrictions too.

Plu. Y. May 20, 2022     

Good, but i think it lacks a few features. I think it would good if you could save footage from continuous recording to the phone used as camera, not just to the viewer phone. I also think a remote turn on and turn off could be useful.

Ste. W. May 22, 2022     

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 👍 👌 Works great! Turns my old cell phones into home security cameras, with live video and motion detection. You can even talk through the phones like an intercom, turn the flashlight off & on, and the night vision setting actually works, and works VERY WELL!!! This is definitely a useful app!! 5 STARS!!

Don. C. May 14, 2022     

The only good feature I found so far is the zoom where you can pan left or right and zoom in on the viewing area. Otherwise the quality of the video in low-light scenarios is just garbage. Even in HD it's not worth the monthly fee. I found several other apps that are way better and free.

sha. n. Mar 22, 2022     

Was gonna sub 4 the pro version but 2 issues with the free version. 1st prices went up just 2 days after i downloaded it b4 i ever even had a chance to experience or use the app. Also not sure how but roommate was able to put or spray something on the camera lens from the side without it recording. When it goes fuzzy honestly should count as movement when anything changes.

Eri. H. Apr 10, 2022     

Just finished the setup and so far so good picture, sound, motion detector, low light vision it all works and looks great to me. All that for free is alright in my book. I will come back in a week or so and update my review after I've had a chance to really put it to use.

Bil. M. Apr 14, 2022     

This app requires you to leave your unattended device unlocked. There is no capability for background or locked use which gives the discoverer of the device full access to your data as well as the ability to turn off the device. Presumably you might use it in a security context at a hotel, etc where you are specifically using the software to guard access to something valuable. What's more valuable than your online data and access to all of your social media and banking apps?

Joh. S. May 23, 2022     

Like the service, prefer you could zoom in without paying, by fo a free app it's ok. Also, having a better layout would be a good idea. Have to switch pages for everything is kind of a hassle. Otherwise, great app.

Pam. W. May 4, 2022     

Unable to log in again. The app is unusable I have to find another one now. Google login times out with error 3001 code. The know more link goes to self help steps that don't work. The password reset link also times out, no email received. It's been days. I think it's from this update that I would opt out of, if I could.

Dou. G. May 24, 2022     

Works well. Wish night mode was a little brighter but that's probly the phones limitation. I don't have WiFi but my tablet works great and it works on mobile hotspot well. Pic quality decent. I'm sort on cash at the moment but will try upgraded version when I can. Ads are not to bad just have to x out of them every so often.used wire coat hangers to make mounts has worked well. Overall I am extremely satisfied w/ this app. Saved me from having to buy cams. I use 2 old TMobile Android phones

Bil. S. May 15, 2022     

Wonderful Free security that I can easily utilize with old devices and minimal tech knowledge. I espionage love the saved moment and share features. I recommend it to everyone I know! Only improvement would be if I could add my smart TVs or if you sold outdoor cameras!I'd love to to product testing!

Dev. S. May 20, 2022     

This is a wonderful app and has helped me a lot to keep an eye on my puppy. However, it keeps eating data even when there is strong wifi signal. This happens on a viewer device. I am using Samsung Galaxy S9+ as viewer. I will raise my ratings when this is resolved.

Ric. S. May 6, 2022     

I like it. Set up couldn't be easier and it works like a charm. The only thing that's missing is the ability to take a single frame snapshot. I love that I can turn on the flashlight. The zoom and microphone work great too. The upgrade to premium features are worth the price.
