    What I would like to achieve is audio surveillance from a dedicated android phone, that syncs the files to my Google account automatically. The phone will be plugged in, no SIM card, just recording audio (and maybe video). The files need to be identifiable by time and small enough to upload frequently over public Wi-Fi. Video or occasional still images would be nice but not essential.

    I have tried the following:
    Alfred
    Trackview
    Wardencam
    ASR
    VoiceX
    Voice recorder
    Surveillance

    However, none of them can achieve what I’m after. The closest is ASR, which can record files and sync them to my Google drive account, and provide a time code, however, there is no way to automate it. It can record continuously, however I have to manually stop it to allow it to upload, and because I’m using public Wi-Fi, which is a bit slow, and I am only available to stop the files once a day, they end up too large and cumbersome to transfer via Wi-Fi. If I could get it to automatically stop after an hour and restart that would work, but that function is not available as far as I can tell (but I have emailed the developer). It does have the ability to record voice activated, however, that removes the time code, as it just keeps recording but removes the silence. Therefore, I end up with a large file I have to manually stop and I have no idea when the audio within was recorded.


    Any suggestions
