How to use android phone for surveillance camera?

Hi guys,

There may be some tech hacks that will let you do that, but if they exist, I've never seen that.

What may do the trick for you is an IP camera. There are models that simply connect to your home network (both wired and WiFi), and have their own webserver that you can view from anywhere with a smart phone.

If you are trying to avoid putting holes in walls, or the like, they are fairly lightweight, and can be mounted using something like command adhesives.

There are even models that look like common objects, if the goal is to not have an obvious camera...
