This paper proposes a new intelligent video surveillance system based on Android phone. By using Android phone, this system can be deployed easily and quickly. Compare with the traditional surveillance system, this new one uses Android phone to replace the large and expensive surveillance cameras. In addition, the functions of back-end equipment of the traditional system have been moved to the front-end equipment. With a modified invasion detection algorithm, the front-end equipment becomes more intelligent. This schema can significantly increase the mobility and flexibility of the entire system. Therefore this system will have a better performance dealing with emergencies in different surveillance scenarios. Moreover, this state-of-art intelligent video surveillance system not only brings a new method for surveillance, but also advances the development of surveillance techniques.
