  1. Support Foscam FI9928P with pan & optical zoom

    Foscam FI9928P is not listed as a supported camera but the OWLR app for the iPad allows gesture control for both pan and tilt of the Foscam FI9928P camera and works great!

    The OWLR app for the Android version does not show PTZ controls or allow gesture control of pan and tilt. Both apps do not allow optical zoom.

  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. Remove World Cameras

  6. 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.

  7. Motion Detection Schedule

    In addition to Snoozing, it would be nice to schedule when there shouldn't be motion so we only receive alerts during that time.

  8. Sync Cameras Between Devices

    In the Foscam app, you can add a camera via iPhone and it will appear when you open the Foscam app on my iPad. The Foscam app syncs through the user's cloud subscription (they give you a free account, then bombard you with ads to buy more storage). Perhaps the sync feature could be part of the OWLR Alert subscription: the camera data could be in the user's account, and the cameras sync when they log in.

  9. Possible to support D-Link DCS-8000LH?

    The new D-Link DCS-8000LH was not discovered by OWLR.
    http://us.dlink.com/products/cameras/mini-hd-wi-fi-camera-dcs-8000lh/

    The camera has no wired ethernet so the initial configuration is done over Bluetooth BLE using a smartphone app.

    I could not find that there is any web administration interface available for configuration.
    But here is what I could reverse engineer about its network capabilities.

  16. Allow resizing of the individual camera views on the main window

    I am currently only viewing 2 cameras and they sit in tiny windows at the top left of the screen, why can’t these windows be reliable or auto best fit the available screen space, this should apply to both landscape or portrate, for instance with only 2 cameras having the iPad in portrate mode should fill the screen with the 2 camera video feeds one above the other.

  20. 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.
