“Say you’re leaving your computer unattended in a hotel room or at home – simply place your Haven phone atop the device, and anytime the Android detects motion, light, or movement, it makes a note of this potential intrusion. It will take photos, record noises, and monitor variations in the environment, and then send notifications to you. Better yet, none of this information will be stored in the cloud – all communication you receive from Haven is end-to-end encrypted over Signal,” according to Digital Trends.
