Haven (Keep Watch): What is it about?
Haven was developed by the infamous ex-NSA whistleblower – Edward Snowden – under the aegis of “The Guardian Project”. The app was released about 2 years ago, in December 21, 2017, with the latest update coming barely four months ago in April, 2019.
The app is a simple surveillance platform, which transforms your phone’s features into sound, motion, light and vibration sensors. This is achieved by leveraging on the host phone’s audio feature (microphone), camera and others, giving you the opportunity to detect intrusions of various forms. All observed changes are logged and saved in-app. and where necessary, users are notified as appropriate.
Below is a summary of the sensors (smartphone features) used by Haven:
- Camera; for surveiling motion or visual intrusions.
- Power; for surveiling remotely triggered power loss or device shutdown.
- Microphone; for surveiling audio/sound .
- Light Sensor; for observing changes in illumination.
- Accelerometer; to monitor vibrations and motions.
With this app (and inherent sensors), you’d be notified of any forced or unauthorized entry, whether in form of audio or visual surveillance. This will definitely beef up your internet security against cyber intrusions. Besides, its many features can compete against top-notch home security devices.
