Do you have an old phone gathering dust somewhere in your house and don’t know what to do with it? There are many ways you can put your old iPhone or Android to good use, and one of the most practical is to turn it into a security camera. That’s right: as long as the phone camera still works and the device can connect to Wi-Fi, you can easily set it up as a security camera with the help of third-party apps and watch over your home when you are not around.

You can prop it up or mount it on a small phone tripod or stand somewhere where you will be able to view an entry point to your home (windows or doors), the room where you keep your valuables, your garage, or any other place you would like to monitor.

As you can see, using an old phone as a security camera can be a great way to repurpose old technology while improving your home security.
