Alfred: Repurpose Your Old Android Phone As A Video Camera

I've seen free apps like this for a few years now, but Alfred appears to be the most polished, complete service I've seen.

Here's their video pitch:

This is interesting for consumers. An app to run on your old smartphone to make is a home security camera? Has anyone here tried this app?

Joseph, this is from 5 years ago. I think with consumer cameras being so inexpensive these days, i.e., $25 Wyze cameras, there's not a lot of demand to repurpose phones.

Reason I asked is a co-worker decided to repurpose his unused smartphones and just wondered what others here thought. I agree, there's better options these days.
