If you can't afford to install high tech surveillance cameras to keep an eye on your home, you might be in luck. There's an App for that.
Over in the Cannon Hill neighborhood The Scoop is serving up ice cream along with a firm stance on intruders. After a thief broke in and stole money last month, owner Jennifer Davis came up with a cost-saving way to have eyes on their ice cream shop.
"I couldn't afford the Costco cameras or the packages that they had," she said.
Instead she found an App called manything which lets you turn your iPhone or iPad into a security camera.
"You can see it real time going on, you can also review the film later on your laptop," Davis said.
You don't have to search through hours of footage as the timeline will track noise and movement, and its one of several free services Davis uses to help secure The Scoop. She also uses Next Door, which is a private social network for the neighborhood, where you can let neighbors know of everything from a bake sale to a burglary.
