It's been more than three years since People Power first began offering Presence, a freemium app that can transform any smartphone or tablet into a Wi-Fi security camera, complete with two-way streaming and some rudimentary motion-detection capabilities. It now wants to take things a step further.
Repurposing hardware you otherwise no longer have a use for is a great way to save money, but there's only so much you can do with a smartphone or a tablet that were designed for other uses. Adding purpose-built sensors should go a long way to making up for that deficiency.
