Default use your gear as a security camera or monitor

want to use your watch to see what's going on at home? all you need is the Gear + another android device - and install 20:20 app - this app turns your watch into a remote security camera or use it to monitor the video feed from another device

for my setup, i took an old android phone and installed the app and set it as my emote camera at home. i then installed the same app on my gear and configured it as my monitor - so now i can see what's going on at home.in addition you can set the remote camera to sound an alarm and/or start recording should it detect motion where it is looking (paid version)

Why not just use the old android phone as the video monitor?

Because why would I carry both the old phone and the watch? The point is my old phone acts like my remote camera and the watch as my monitor so I can check it where ever I am
