With the rapid progression of technology each year, it’s easy to accumulate a pile of obsolete gadgets that you just can’t bear to get rid of. So don’t! Here is how you can take the retired gadgets you’ve already got and turn them into something that has a place in the future.
Create a Home Security System with a Webcam
When you buy a new laptop, or even a monitor, these days you’re almost guaranteed a built-in webcam. That’s great, but what do you do with your old bulky, USB-cabled micro-camera? You use it as a security monitor for your home. You can even make it motion-sensing. Better to have it catching criminals than collecting dust !! All you need is a PC, a webcam and a free, open source program such as Dorgem. After connecting everything and installing software you will have a security camera that can take pictures of any intruders and upload them to a remote location via FTP.
