Here is a question we get from the Alfredians from time to time:” my camera phone feels warm to the touch. Is that normal?” While it actually is perfectly normal, we can see why it’s a concern. Here are 4 simple tips to keep your camera cool!

 1. Use the Charger/Battery that Came with the Phone

We have all been tempted by cheap batteries, but the quality is very often unreliable. Whenever possible, use the charger and battery from the manufacturer. It could make a big difference!

2. Take off the Case

Your camera phone can’t really benefit much from a case anymore, plus it traps the heat. Taking the case off helps keep the phone cool!

3. Location, Location, Location

Avoid setting Alfred up where the sun directly hits.

4. Tape It

Taping Alfred to the wall is one of the simplest way of setting it up, plus the cool surface helps diffuse the heat!

      Hi Melody, thanks for downloading Alfred and reaching out to us! Does this happen often? If you are sure the phone has not be powered off, it could be because Alfred has been automatically updated or that it has been stopped unexpectedly. If this happens often, please send us an email (support at with the Gmail account you use so we can look into it!

    I have just downloaded Alfred, tried it out and works a treat, I have a disabled daughter who needs to be watched 24 hours so this will be great for that while at home, how far can u go until you can’t press the talk feature or does it work anywhere?

    Many phones now have infrared emitters to use for universal remote controls. Is it possible to make an update the can use the emitters with phones that have them. So of us who are a little more techie than others could use reflection to aim the light at the target. So as to provide a more realistic night vision without having to set up ambient light or some stand alone IR blaster.
