  1. Support Wansview 1080p NCM625GA

    The Wansview 1080p NCM625GA is a confirmed camera that has a similar price point to newer Foscam IP camera's but without the terrible firmware issues. The Wansview NCM625GA is sold on amazon as Wansview 1080P 2.0MP WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera, Full HD.

    The Wansview is known to work easily with Zoneminder on Linux in addition to Mac and Window's platforms.

  2. Foscam FI9826 Camera Features

    1. Provide a true optical zoom function for these cameras. The current app only has a low-quality digital zoom, but the cameras have a 3X optical zoom.

    2. Provide full brightness/contrast/sharpness/color controls. The cameras are almost useless looking outdoors without this.

  3. Change/set the number of featured cameras

    Current there seems to be over 50 preset featured cameras, and from what I can tell, they never change. I'd like to change that to 10 and remove the others. And then have them rotate the 10 daily so I could favorite those I like.

  4. Change Password on Installed Cameras

    We love this app. We use 4 cameras inside our office and this app is a great help. Once in a while I like to change the password inside the cameras. Unfortunately this is not possible in this app. In order to do so I have to remove the cameras and add them again as new cameras in order to bring the new password in. Such a waste of time.
    I hope this facility will soon be added.

  6. View the entire image when in portrait mode.

    The app doesn't show the entire image of my Foscam C1 while in portrait mode. Please fix that.

  9. Support for the QD900wifi

    This is a reasonably priced outdoor camera. I've started moving away from the old cameras and I hope to continue using this great app for the new Escam QD900 cams.
    Thanks,
    Ken

  14. Add Lorex camera support

    I'm using Lorex MCNC100. It supports RTSP video feed.

    The password for video seed is set separately. It also requires camera ID as part of the URL.

    The complete URL is rtsp://<address>:554/<camera_id>.<play_video_password>

    Video is mp4v (H264). Audio is PCM MU-LAW (mlaw).

    If OWLR can add generic RTSP support, it is good enough to expend the list of supported devices.

  15. Please support IPv6 addresses in Foscam app. My ISP only allows incoming connections over IPv6, not IPv4! Support IPv6 DNS AAAA records.

    Please support IPv6 addresses in Foscam app. My ISP only allows incoming connections over IPv6, not IPv4! Support IPv6 DNS AAAA records for domain name lookup as well. My IPv6 router will port forward to the internal IPv4 local camera address.

    We are looking into it. We have discovered that many people like the digital zoom with the buttons – whereas we had planned on supporting only optical zoom with the buttons and pinch-to-zoom for the zoom in.

  19. Support DVR with multiple cameras

    Have a Defender DVR, all cameras run through that unit. Apps like ASee are horrible but the only solution for using a single IP to multiple camera viewer. Have this mixed with a few Foscam cameras. Would love to have all of them under one app. So far the app is great guys!
