5) There will be an options in the app "Request Police Watch''. You can give the details to police through this option if you are going away from house on a tour. You need to mention the departure and arrival dates so that the police will arrange security for your house.
6) After registering the app, the police will come to your house and fix a camera and modem at the house for security.
7) The camera and mobile number of the owner will be integrated with the police control room.

9) The photos and information received by police control room also will be shared with the owner of the house.
Most of thefts are happening in the holidays and during summer as the people move out to tours and villages. The app has been successfully implemented by Ananthapur police and now it is applied for the entire Andhra Pradesh.
