LOL ;-)

But seriously. In the province Groningen, in the northern part of the Netherlands, people suffer from earth quakes caused by the gas extraction from the ground.
I remember that years ago I was on some kind of presentation where they explained they used old phones that include a gyroscope to do their own measurements. 
There were only limited official measurements, but now anybody with a cheap (obsolete) phone was able to measure the earthquakes.. 
With many measurement points they were able to collect much better data.

So your remark reminded me of this. I hope you don't have earthquakes, but if your house would not be perfectly stationary, this could be an idea ;-).
In the netherlands the ground is not always rock solid, depending on where you live. If a big truck or bus drives by, the house starts shaking. Another purpose of a gyroscope and APRS maybe.

(luckily I don't have trucks in the street, nor earthquakes (touch wood)).

Best Regards
