History of Smartphone Monitoring

In May 2009, America saw the first available security app that would allow you to visually monitor your home from your iPhone and/or iPod Touch. It was not long after this, that the development and execution of the other apps started to appear for the Android and Blackberry systems. It seemed so basic and yet so technologically advanced – with just a few buttons on your personal phone, you could be watching what is going on in your home no matter where you are. The sense of security that these apps brought made it essential to any homeowner.
