SecureHome lets you use your Mac as a home security system. Using either your Macs built-in microphone, or an external microphone, SecureHome will listen for potential intruders. If an intruder is heard, SecureHome will sound an alarm and email an alert to your smartphone. Using the free SecureHome iPhone remote controller, and your Dropbox account, you can also view a video stream inside your home, and arm/disarm SecureHome using your iPhone! Note that SecureHome requires a Dropbox account to enable using the iOS companion app.

Features Include:
* Alarm Sound: SecureHome sounds an alarm to scare off intruders
* Email Alerts: SecureHome sends an alert to your smartphone when it detects an intruder
* Movies: After receiving an alert, view a movie of your home using the SecureHome iPhone controller
* Remote control: Arm and disarm SecureHome using your iPhone
* Calibration features: Calibrate your microphone and camera using interactive displays


Release Notes:

- Fixes a bug with mail settings
- Ensures status correctly says 'On' when armed by the iPhone app

Cool features especially with email and video alerts - I've been playing around with this app for a few days now and it takes a little while to tinker with the settings to get the performance of the alarm set with the sounds in my house, but it is definitely worth the effort! I have no problems getting the email alerts with the sound files (very cool) and I use Dropbox to view the movies from my computer's camera. Some of the sound files are really entertaining - like my dog barking (need to tweak the calibration a bit more for that), but it's cool to be able to hear the sounds of what is triggering the alarm. This is a fun and useful app.

Great app! Great service! - We're using SecureHome to monitor our smoke detectors while we're away. We have five cats and worry that they would not be able to get out of the house if there is a fire. This way we get notified if the smoke detector is alarming and can call our neighbor to make sure the cats get out. The app works great! And the iPhone app allows us to monitor alarms from anywhere. There was a small bug using the iPhone app, but Steve corrected this within two days of me notifying him and put an update on the App Store. Great service!

POS — PIECE OF SH*T - Doesn’t work. Guess people are super used to making an applicaiton but never updating it. So, don’t DL this application unless you like waisting 5 dollars.
