Phone As Spy Camera - Turn Your Phone Into Remote Surveillance Camera With Motion Detection

Why purchase expensive surveillance cameras, motion detectors and alarm systems when you can just use your camera phone to monitor and protect your home/office in realtime?

In an attempt to demonstrate how smart and powerful your smartphone is, I'm going to share some of the most advanced and incredible mobile applications that convert your s60 Symbian, iPhone, and Android phone into an instant surveillance camera with full-featured motion detection and alarm system function.

Automatically Send SMS, Text Messages At Scheduled Date and Time

Think I'm talking about the most expensive sensor or accelerometer phones? That's a big no. As long as your phone's camera is in good condition you can instantly turn your phone as surveillance security camera that can perform certain SMS, call and internet function.
