Manything

Manything, a cloud-based video monitoring service that allows you to use old iOS devices as security cameras around your home, has released a new version of its app on Wednesday which brings new functionality and support for its freshly-launched IFTTT channel. Announced on Wednesday, the new app allows users to set motion sensitivity, define motion detection zones and directly view a live stream or recorded footage from an iPhone. And if your power or WiFi connection fails you, there’s a continuous recording fallback mode that can be activated. You can either watch live streams in real-time or replay a recording by jumping to key moments (where motion was detected) indicated on the timeline. You can also choose to receive immediate alerts if motion is detected, so you know whether you need to call the police because you can see someone breaking into your house, or whether your cat is just strolling by again.
