Gotya Security Camera is now available in beta for Android 2.3 and later (up to and including KitKat 4.4) smartphones and tablets. This means if you have any older Android devices sitting around gathering dust, you can now put them back to work for you as motion detection cameras and control them with the Android device you’re using today. The app is free, ad-free, and new users get a free 60 day full-feature trial of the Gotya Cloud Service for instant alerts, camera remote control, and cloud picture backup.
The new release also packs three new features that we’ve prioritized based on user feedback:
1) Front facing camera support – you can now select either rear/main camera or front facing camera as the motion detection camera
2) Fake or black screen saver with optional lock code – use this to put the smartphone or tablet in spycam mode – it looks like it’s either idle on the Android home screen (with the fake screen option) or completely powered off (with the black screen option) even though the Gotya motion detection camera is running, and you can protect it with a 4-digit lock code. Use this to deploy your Gotya cameras as spycams and automatically take pictures of anything that moves in front of the camera and get instant alerts. You can also take pictures whenever you want using the instant snapshot feature. All without anyone knowing that a motion detection camera is watching them.
3) Improved camera remote controller menu with larger icons for easier use.
You can download Gotya for Android on Google Play now.
