To dissipate apprehensions of ladies concerning unsafe resort rooms, altering rooms, and different areas, a BTech remaining yr pupil of Jamia Hamdard has created an app which might detect hidden cameras, even at night-time. The app, referred to as ‘Camera Finder’, is accessible on Play Store on Android units.

Camera Finder has been developed by a remaining yr BTech laptop science pupil Faisal Javed (22). “The objective of this app is to ensure safety, by providing a tool to help users find all types of cameras wherever they are. For many travellers, hidden cameras are often worrisome. Many women friends of mine had expressed to me their concerns about cameras and safety, after which I thought of developing the app,” he stated.

“It uses two techniques to detect cameras. Night cameras use infrared light, so, for that, night filters can be used to detect them. For other hidden cameras, the device uses a magnetic field. When the app detects a camera-like device, it makes a beeping sound, and a  reading comes on the app showing the percentage of likelihood that a camera is in the vicinity,” he stated, including that the app has to be used together with “common sense”.

Javed stated it took him one month to develop the app.

Another BTech remaining pupil has developed an app referred to as ‘Collegiate’, additionally obtainable on Android units. It is an in-house app of Jamia Hamdard, which makes obtainable course materials, syllabi, and notes of all programs taught within the college.

The Collegiate app, developed by Rahul Prasad (21), additionally a remaining yr BTech laptop science pupil, took three months. The app, he stated, offers all “class-notes, reference books, last year question papers, sessional papers, topic wise notes along with mentors who are available 24×7.”

“The idea came because of my personal needs for notes, as I couldn’t be present at the university. In April, shortly after the lockdown, there were 1,000 active users. That time we didn’t even have material related to all courses, now there is a lot more,” stated Prasad.

The app is accessible each online and offline.

“Once you download the content, it is going to be saved in your phone memory and thus, can work equally efficiently without any data connection as well… The application ensures that you focus all your attention only to the learning part without being afraid of missing out something relevant,” Prasad added.
