My Guard turns your Android device into a powerful alarm system
Keep intruders away thanks to My Guard, an app that makes the most of your Android device built-in software and hardware to let you know when unwanted guests are trying to enter your house.
What My Guard basically does is making use of your back camera to detect movements through gates or rooms where no one should be moving. For instance, if you're taking a bath, you can let your Android device guarding your backyard gate in order to catch intruders trying to taking advantage of the situation.
When My Guard detects any movement, an alert sounds (dog barking, lion growl, emergency, etc.) and, depending on your personal settings, it sends photos of the intruder by e-mail, notifies friends or even activates flash towards the breach.
It's probably not the best security system but an acceptable one taking into account that My Guard is a free app. It should be enhanced in some regards like layout, sending options and even integration with other gadgets for alerting. However, the app is backed by a good idea.
Connected to your Google Account use your private cloud storage for cross device sync and stay on top of your house and love ones.
With Emails, SMSs, Google account, alarms & flash capabilities keep your home and your self safe during the night.
While alone, asleep, out or just with suspicion use your device to take photos and send them to you per motion detection, and use it to help monitor your close personal space.

There is no option to arm or disarm the alarm, remotely. There is no pin or password required to arm or disarm the alarm, locally. The dark screen option does not shut off the screen, it merely displays a black picture, with start/stop monitoring buttons displayed.
