Tech Report: Turn that old smartphone into a home surveillance system

Do you have an old smart phone or tablet sitting in your junk drawer or closet at home? There's this really cool new app, Camio, that let's you turn that unused device into a free home video surveillance system.

Use it for security, to watch your kids in the yard or while they sleep, or check on your pets.

Using Camio on your unused device streams to the web using your home Wi-Fi, so the old devices you are turning into video cameras do not have to have current data plans or be activated. It all goes through your home Wi-Fi.

You could even just use your tablet that you leave at home while you're at work.

From anywhere in the world, you can open the Camio app on your current phone and get a live real time look at your Camio video feeds. You can have multiple feeds allowing you to cover every angle of your house if you got enough unused Wi-Fi gadgets laying around.
