How To Use Your iPhone For Outdoor Video Surveillance

The iPhone is one of the sleekest, slimmest and most useful multimedia and communications devices on the market.

Far more than just a phone or a media player, the iPhone in its basic configuration can be used as a sophisticated surveillance device to monitor your house or property. 

New iPhone features just unveiled include:

  • GPS
  • Customized Home Page
  • Chapters, subtitles, and languages
  • Lyrics
  • SMS messages for multiple recipients

But few little people know that the iPhone can now be used to watch your home, kids or even your cheating spouse while your away!

First we give a brief description of what the Apple iPhone is currently used for.

The iPhone is a multimedia, Internet-enabled mobile phone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It has a multi-touch screen with virtual keyboard and buttons. The iPhone’s functions include those of a camera phone and a portable media player (‘iPod’), in addition to text messaging and visual voicemail. It also offers Internet services including e-mail, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity.

The iPhone allows conferencing, call holding, call merging, caller ID, and integration with other cellular network features and iPhone functions. For example, a playing song fades out when the user receives a call. Once the call is ended the music fades back in. Voice dialing is not supported by the iPhone.

The iPhone is able to access the World Wide Web via a modified version of the Safari web browser when connected to a local area Wi-Fi or a wide area EDGE network. The iPhone has taken the frustration out of browsing on a mobile phone, said Charles Wolf, an analyst with Needham & Company.

The iPhone also features a built in 2.0 megapixel camera, without a flash, located on the back for still digital photos, but does not support video recording. It also includes software that allows the user to upload, view, and e-mail photos. The user zooms in and out of photos by ‘unpinching’ and ‘pinching’ them through the multi-touch interface. The software interacts with iPhoto on the Mac and Photoshop in Windows.

There are several applications located on the ‘Home’ screen: Text (SMS messaging), Calendar, Photos, Camera, YouTube, Stocks, Maps (Google Maps), Weather, Clock, Calculator, Notes, Settings, and iTunes. Four other applications delineate the iPhone’s main purposes: Phone, Mail, Safari, and iPod.

Now Here is How the iPhone can be used for Video Surveillance of your home or property:
