Would you trust a Nintendo Switch to manage your home security? a new Spy Alert app uses your Joy-Con̵

7;s IR sensor to create a laser tripwire, which alerts you when an intruder crosses its invisible path. For $10, the Spy Alert is… well, it’s for kids and it’s cheaper than a real SpyX motion alarm toy.

Spy Alert comes from Sabec, the developer responsible for the Nintendo Switch Calculator and Xylophone apps, both of which cost $10. Sabec gets a lot of attention because it Calculator app became a bit of a meme, collecting sarcastic reviews, livestreams, and speedruns. The new Spy Alert app seems like an attempt to continue the hype.

But to the glory of Sabec, Spy Alert seems like something a kid would really enjoy using (at least for a day or two). It turns your Joy-Con into a laser tripwire that, when crossed, sets off an alarm on your Switch. The tripwire has a range of one meter (about 3 feet), so like most of those real-world spy alarms, it works best in a hallway or doorway.

If you are a livestreamer or speedrunner looking for funny content, go ahead and give the Spy Alert a test drive. But it goes without saying that if you want to secure your home, you have to stick to real security hardware.
