WHY CHOOSE ALFRED?
Alfred is compatible with the majority of smartphones and tablets on the market. Did you get an iPhone X? As long as your devices run iOS 8 and up, it is compatible with Alfred. Your old iPhone, iPad, or iPod can have a fruitful second life and serve a new purpose! You won’t have spare gadgets gathering dust or going to waste anymore! Do you work behind a PC all day? Use Alfred’s WebViewer to stream video feed from your computer.
Everyone wants to protect their loved ones and ensure their safety. You don’t need ADT or Simplisafe to do that. Unlike traditional CCTV systems, you can place Alfred anywhere and change as often as you want wherever you need to reinforce security. You don’t even have to buy a Nest Cam or Dropcam. Besides the cost of the equipment, these smart home appliances often charge a monthly fee. With Alfred, there is no complicated installation, IP settings, or contract. You only have to download Alfred to build a DIY home security system: pure and simple.
Besides the capacity of streaming live feed of your home, Alfred keeps you updated on what is going on in your home with motion sensor and instant alerts. If you see an intruder, you can scare him away by speaking through the walkie-talkie and immediately notify the local authorities. The videos are kept safe in the free cloud storage, and they can be saved or downloaded as evidence to help identify the suspect. Alfred is an essential component of any home improvement project if you are interested in building a smart home or experimenting with voice assistants such as Google Assistant.
Consider the following scenario: when holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday approach, the number of parcels everyone receives increases. Unfortunately, so do the parcel theft cases. UPS tracking and Fedex tracking do not keep your precious parcels safe! If you check a crime map, you will see that burglary happens more often than you can imagine. How can you deter parcel thieves? Besides becoming part of the Crime Stoppers, you should make Alfred guard the entrance of your place and keep an eye on your property as well as purchases.
Why throw away perfectly usable devices and buy more equipment when you can upcycle, recycle, and repurpose old devices? Everyone is taking advantage of their unused smartphones by turning them into a music player with Spotify, a GPS navigator with Google Maps, or a fitness device with FitBit. It can even become a Bitcoin miner, VR headset, or smart doorbell. Why not use yours as a security camera?

Love this app and service!
I haven’t had hardly any trouble with the app or the service. The only thing I wish it did was allow you to share cameras and give those you share cameras with full admin control over said cameras. So, if my wife is annoyed by constant notifications she has to text me and turn off the motion detection. Also, I never get reminders to turn the motion detection on or iff depending on whether I am home or not. I thought that was a free feature. Over all, I am super satisfied with Alfred. One question—why the app name change?!? DIY CCTV is really boring branding TBH. One more thing—there needs to be a way to turn of “phone is not charging” warnings. I am getting them repeatedly and all of them are not necessary. I need one and then I need another when the battery gets to 50 another at 20 and maybe start to nag me at 5%. But there is no reason to bug me every minute or so when I know the phone is plugged in and I am at work. Plus it usually stops charging until the battery level actually drops. Then it starts charging again.

Great for pet sitting
I love this app so much and am so happy I found it. My wife and I were wondering about the best way to keep an eye on our lil puppy while we’re at work and make sure he’s not barking or whining all day. We were looking into buying cameras or expensive pet monitoring equipment when we found the app Alfred. We were able to use our tablets we normally leave at home to easily monitor our little pup for free. We can always see how he is doing from our phones and even talk through the microphone to calm him down or just to check in before we get home. The night mode feature helps us tremendously since he is a black lab and hard to spot sometimes. The app also lets us swap through accounts easily to switch our viewing tablets and lets us know our battery percentage at all times. I’d highly recommend Alfred to anyone with a need to monitor their pet. Also, the motion detection feature along with instant notifications to your phone make it a solid choice for baby and house monitoring as well.
It’s not as good as it was
I have used this app off and on for almost two years. I don’t like the recent upgrades that limited the amount of time movement is recorded. The app used to stop recording at a certain point and pick right back up because it defected there was still movement, not any more. The kids can leave the view of the camera, it stops recording but does not pick them back up when the walk back into the view of the camera, they made it through the living room into the kitchen. Both rooms are in the view. This was not just once, it’s a lot. Many times it will pick up a person walking in OR out of view BUT it dies not catch both.
I have Alfred set up on a tablet that is next to the router and always plugged in charging, I’m not sure why I get logged out so often and it takes forever to get logged back in.
The Alfred app was better and more reliable before all of these changes.
I purchased a one month subscription to the premium for $3.99 to see if that makes a difference and restores the dependability of the app, so far I have to say it does Not.
I have a 45 second recording, when I watched it, I found that it only recorded movement for 15 seconds, the rest of the recording was still frame, no movement at all.
If I do not see dependability like it used to have I will start looking for another security app and cancel my premium subscription to Alfred. I am crossing my fingers, I liked the Alfred app.
