Description

Bantay is a time lapse watchdog for home security:
Have a spare iOS device? Use Bantay to watch over your home. Using your device's cameras, Bantay will monitor changes in images taken over a set time interval pointed to hot spots like your front and back doors. Images with changes can then be saved to your Photo Library. The sensitivity and resolution of image change detection can be calibrated for different situations. Alternatively, images with human faces can be detected using face detection features that come with iOS and saved. A Device Motion option also allows for instant capture of photos with the front camera if the device is moved for additional security.

Remotely access images over wireless:
If wireless is available on all devices and iCloud Photo Library with automatic "Upload to My Photo Stream" is enabled, then images can be monitored remotely and securely with any device logged into your iCloud account. No subscriptions or additional access is required. Please note images cannot be uploaded to iCloud if connected over wireless to a GoPro.

Bantay is also a time lapse camera:
Bantay can be used in time lapse photography with intervals as short as 5 seconds just up to 24 hours. It can intelligently save only images with significant changes, such as a flower blooming or snow falling. Saved images can then be played back and saved to a movie file. Bantay can also connect to and control a GoPro Hero 3/3+ over wireless to take pictures at specified intervals, as well as alternate with cameras on your iOS device. Please note the GoPro Hero 4 is currently not supported.

Bantay as an automatic camera:
Have no one nearby to take a picture of you? Use Bantay with the front camera as your automatic photographer. Group jump shots are simple with Bantay.

Ratings and Reviews

It's my surveillance camera

Couchtimer

I've used it to monitor my apartment balcony while I'm away using my iPad. It works well and is interesting how it captures small changes in the camera's view that I wouldn't have noticed.
