Want to keep an eye on your valuables, but don't have the budget for a full security system? Well, you're in luck because there's a less-expensive option you can put together.
This trick is perfect to monitor a single door, say if you're renting a room or staying in a hotel. Or maybe you want to protect something you're keeping in a drawer, closet or jewelry box. Ever thought about how this can be done using one of your Apple gadgets?
If you have an unused iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad lying around, you can turn it into a security camera with very little effort. If you do use a tablet, it will need to have a rear camera.
You'll also need a stand to keep the gadget upright and pointed in the right direction. I sell a good, inexpensive smartphone and tablet stand in my store. With that in place, now you just need the app.
