The Visakhapatnam rural police have launched a mobile app called Locked House Monitoring System to prevent burglaries at locked houses.

Superintendent of Police (Visakha Rural) Rahul Dev Sharma said initially people in Anakapalle and Narsipatnam areas will be provided the facility and it will be later extended to Chodavaram. On the working of the app, he said one has to register by downloading the app in their smart phone. ‘By doing so, he or she becomes our subscriber. And when one going out of station, all that he or she has to do is to send us an alert by feeding in the date. We will send a constable to their house with a camera. The camera will be installed at the recommended place. If a burglar barges in and comes within 10 mt radius of the camera and alert will be sent to the control room through the Wi-Fi router that is connected to the camera, he said.

The SP called upon the people of these two areas to make better use of the system. He said that the app can be downloaded on their android phones or any smartphone from Google Playstore.
