ReconBot turns your iPhone/iPod into a full-fledged spy device with powerful video, photo and audio capabilities.

With ReconBot you can record discreetly, schedule recordings to happen at a later date and time and even remotely view through ReconBot from a web browser using the "Remote View" feature (see below for instructions).

All captured video, photos and audio are stored in ReconBot's private media area and can be organized using the case file feature.

REMOTE VIEW INSTRUCTIONS - Swipe to "Remote View" then tap "share viewing link". This will allow you to send yourself the link where the feed will appear. Next, tap ACTIVATE and hit the red button to start a remote viewing session. Then, simply visit the link in a web browser. If you get a 404 not found page error, that's because you have not actually started the feed by pressing ACTIVATE and hitting the red button. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

IMPORTANT - Phone calls, text messages and emails cannot be suppressed by ANY app on the Apple App Store. ReconBot is no exception. Also, apple enforces the audio shutter sound to play when taking a covert photo due to various state privacy laws. If this is a concern for you, we recommend turning your volume all the way down or putting your phone into vibrate mode.

STORAGE SPACE - Recordings can take up large amounts of disk space. You can control this in a few ways. Most importantly, set the recording quality to a suitable setting. High quality will produce better recordings but require more storage space. After a video has been recorded, ReconBot can trim and/or compress it to save space and keep only what you need. ReconBot also has the ability to crop photos.
