Summary:As surveillance technology develops, what products are on offer for home tracking?


 A smartphone interceptor

Eyetek's smartphone interceptor is a relatively new set of spying software to keep an eye on smartphone activity.

The manufacturers say that "the SmartPhone Intercept is great for keeping tabs your spouse if you suspect they may be having an affair, employees, children, and anyone else you wish to."

When the software is quietly installed on the target Android device, all activity on the phone can be monitored via an accompanying mobile console, although it will only work if the SIM installed is Wi-Fi ready. The software can track incoming and outgoing SMS messages, GPS information, incoming and outgoing calls, background noise recording and any file -- including video, audio and images -- that are stored on the mobile device.

In addition, the software will track and transfer any email records made on the handset.

The smartphone interceptor costs £149 ($238).
