When it comes to safety, people make sure that they have the best system set up against possible dangers, especially in their own homes.

Home security apps have played a huge role in keeping homes secure, even if the homeowner is away for work, for an errand, or for a vacation.

With the holidays approaching, many are leaving their homes to celebrate merriment elsewhere, which is why we made a list of some of the best home security apps you might need to get on your Android or iOS devices.

1. i-Security

Reolink says that i-Security is mainly considered one of the best home security apps for Android and iOS devices as it provides live streaming from different cameras through a surveillance system.

This live stream can be viewed on users’ devices as long as they are connected to mobile data or WiFi, and users can set this up on multiple servers.

However, while i-Security can instantly turn your devices into surveillance cameras which provides much convenience, it is important to note that this free app stops working when the device goes to sleep.

2. AtHome

According to SP Screens, AtHome is a useful home monitoring app that lets users control most of the cameras already installed in their homes.

It allows them to have up to four different video streams coming from webcams, baby monitors, and many more to let you monitor the whole home simultaneously.

AtHome also includes motion detection alerts that let users know instantly if someone or something that should not be there has entered the premises or a specific room.

3. Canary

Canary sets itself apart from others as it provides homeowners with different profiles that devices can adopt to monitor and record streams.

This app can monitor users’ home environment by monitoring their homes while they are sleeping or away, taking high-definition footage through the camera.

Additionally, the camera itself offers a comprehensive response as it emits a 90-decibel alarm when triggered, contacting the local police directly from the Canary.

4. Alfred

According to Reolink, Alfred is a home security camera that is easy to use as it does not require users to go through lengthy signups and logins.

Like other home security apps, this one also turns smartphones into security cameras where users can deliver simple commands from.

Alfred offers a smooth interface and a user-friendly design, with features like motion detection alerts and night vision controls.

5. Alarm.com

Alarm.com is a home security camera that lets users view the home through their devices, like a web camera, by simply pointing it to the direction they want to.

This app has motion detectors and alarms that get triggered when it detects danger, which users can arm and disarm at any moment.

It notifies users when a door is left open or if the pet has gotten out of the house, but most importantly, Alarm.com sends a notification if someone tries to hack into users’ accounts.

6. Nest

SP Screens says that Nest offers a strong and comprehensive home management system with an easy-to-use interface that makes the user experience convenient to use.

Nest provides video feeds and controls users can connect to the thermostat, as well as alerts for smoke and carbon monoxide detectors if they have Nest appliances.

It broadcasts live streams in clear 1080p, from where users can take snapshots from to see what has been going on in the home.
