The main drawback is that you need two i OS devices to use the app’s live streaming feature, and not everyone has an extra i Phone lying around.

To view your live stream on the monitor device, open up the Presence app and tap the camera device’s name under the “Remote Cameras” section.

The app may take a moment to connect (or it may take a couple of tries), but it should eventually display a view of the live stream if both ends have a decent connection.

i Cam Spy ($4; Android and PC/Mac) is a little different from Presence: Instead of using two mobile devices, it requires an Android device for monitoring and a PC with a webcam and microphone for surveillance.

i Cam Spy isn’t free, but its polished interface and excellent video capabilities make it worth the $4.

The stream isn’t perfect—it’s choppy and full of blocky-looking artifacts when there’s movement on the other side—but it’s better than a non-HD webcam, and perfectly acceptable for basic home surveillance.

Audio streaming is clear and crisp, though it can have a lag of up to two seconds.

I tested several apps and found just two that are excellent at what they do and super easy to set up. Presence (free; i OS) can turn it into a Wi-Fi or cellular network-powered live streaming video feed that you can view remotely.

Presence isn’t just a video camera app, though—it has surveillance features, such as motion detection alerts (you can set Presence to alert you when the streaming device picks up motion) and two-way video and audio capabilities.
