PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 11, 2015) - People Power, creators of Presence, the popular mobile app that transforms unused smartphones and tablets into free Internet security cameras, has won a 2015 Eco-Excellence Award in the Baby Monitor Category.

For use as a baby monitor, pet cam, nanny cam, surveillance cam or do-it-yourself security system, Presence lets users know what's happening in their house while they're away. The app streams video and audio in real-time, and alerts users based on personalized settings, such as when movement is detected. Presence also features two-way videos calls, so users can communicate with children in their home from anywhere in the world.

"Gone are the days we'd have to transport baby monitors all over the house," said Stacy Hassan, mother of two and a Presence user. "Now we're able to keep an eye on the kiddos using our mobile devices."

In addition, with added smart products, Presence delivers whole-home security and energy monitoring, and enables automated and remote control of in-home electrical devices. Users can schedule or manually power home lighting or electric appliances on and off from a smart device. For example, users can design rules within the app to turn lights off in the nursery at 7 p.m. and on at 7 a.m., or turn on their smartphone's flashlight remotely to activate a night-light.

"For parents, Presence can serve as an extra pair of eyes and ears to help monitor your baby (and the nanny) whether you are in the next room or on a different continent," said Gene Wang, CEO and co-founder of People Power. "We are grateful to be recognized by Natural Child World Magazine for our unconventional baby monitor solution, which allows you to view, hear, talk with, and protect your child remotely using a recycled smartphone or tablet."

The Eco-Excellence Awards are the only awards to recognize excellence in the world of sustainability and social responsibility. Products were rated on performance, style, design and footprint by a panelist of celebrity judges, Parents' Lab and NCW editors, as well as voted on by thousands of fans worldwide.
