    My Guard turns your Android device into a powerful alarm system

    • Simple yet free security system
    • Different security levels
    • Notifications
    • Layout
    • Needs more features

    "Be safe at home"

    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.

    "The best way to turn your Android phone or Tablet into a mobile video surveillance & monitoring system"
    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.
    Don't trust your babysitter and need a nanny cam or a baby monitor?
    Want to keep tabs on your house while on vacation, pet monitor or spy cam?
    Use the silent mode to get photos straight to you when ever a motion is detected just like a wireless camera \ ip camera \ ipcam

    My Guard activated as a motion detector, but it not a replacement to a professional alarm system.
    It just for entertainment use, any use is on the user responsibility.

    Main features that you can choose to activated while detecting an intruder:
    • Sound an alert or stay in stealth mode
    • Send the photos by Email
    • Get notified by SMS
    • Flash towards the breach

    1. Aim your phone camera at the possible breach. E.g. door, window, hallway etc.
    2. Push start guarding.
    3. Recommendations: Go to setting and fill out email & phone number for SMS. (Optional features)

    Few scenarios:

    1. You have reached home after a long day, and want to take a bath. Just leave your phone on the table towards the main window, My Guard will alarm if a burglar or theft appear, and alert your friend by SMS or email.

    2. You want to go to the kitchen and grab something to eat but your cat always jumps on the table and from there to the TV. Don’t leave the cat alone, activate My Guard, point it to the table and see what happens.

    3. While you are camping in the wild nature, to avoid an unpleasant situation with an animal (like bear or a snake). when you go to sleep in your tent, activate My Guard and point it towards the entry.

    Please note:
    Any information that you provide to My Guard is subject to Google's Privacy Policy, which governs the collection and use of your information. You are responsible for others privacy as you capture them with the app and store the photos to your Google drive account.
    You understand that through your use of the Services you consent to the collection and use (as set forth in the Privacy Policy) of this information, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing and use.

    Imagine situation: hotel on the mountains, bad WiFi, low phone signal. You want to secure your room but live video will never work. Second device might even get worst signal while you are out exploring. Why not just send a couple timed pictures when movement is detected, just upload those pictures to GDrive. The second device just gets a link to the GDrive folder where he can load just previews for faster access. Adding face detection to the pictures, so they are taken when a face is seen would be the best in identifying the subjects. Also taking pictures if the device is moved. With evidence like that you could just go to the reception and ask for anything taken, even the "camera". Videos saved into the original device might be useful afterwards but the app should not just rely on big broadband WiFi or Network only. In this scenario both my device and my gf's would be used so a network plan will be available on both sides. So far so good, the app sends pictures to Drive, but the folder is missing, no notification and the screen stays on for no reason. No OLED screen so a black screen is useless.
