  2. Support external access to multiple cameras with the same port.

    The Foscam app seems to support it but I like your software better. Your app tries to change the port else it fails but the Foscam app seems to work (fails frequently).

  3. For sd card enabled cameras build a control to review the last x (configurable) minutes of video.

    For sd card enabled cameras build a control to review the last x (configurable) minutes of video. Would also be nice to play back at something other than real time.

  4. Add a 12 hour option on notif. snooze

    Please add a 12 hour option on the motion detection snooze feature. Most people with 9-5 jobs come home in the evening and are home until the morning, 8 hrs isn't enough and 24 is too long.

    I also voted for the motion detection scheduler idea but I figured the 12hr snooze would be a little easier to implement until a scheduler is available. Thanks.

  6. Foscam IQ200 support (which is identical to C2)

    Right now the control panel only has a "snapshot" button. No PTT/IR control button available even though the camera supports that.

  8. Add schedule

    Add a schedule to enable / disable motion notification. 7 day hourly type would be great or a 5/2 for weekdays and weekends.

  11. VPN Support

    Original post - "External access through OpenVPN would be very appreciated."

    We get quite a few requests to support VPNs in general. Feel free to add your vote here!

    UPDATE: 7/12/2016

    Note: Changed Request title

    Definitely something we will be adding in the future.

    Workaround/ fix for Android:

    VPN are not supported because of the way our app binds to the port.

    I personally use a VPN on my Android phone; the way I get around the issue is discovery and setup the camera’s without my VPN turned on. Once you’ve done this and all the camera’s are setup, you can then switch your VPN back on.

    I’ve only tested this on my phone (Samsung S6), as the other devices in the office do not have VPN setup on them, so this isn’t a guaranteed fix.

    Daniel :)

  12. Audio level Threshold under which phone will be mute

    Would like a feature where the sounds will mute under a certain threshold. That will allow to monitor a baby for example leaving the phone for the night with the app open and not wake up from every little noise the baby makes.

    We do plan on this “audio squelch” — the challenge has been the time and focus to deliver on this feature. We have an upcoming update that should add some power to the player on iOS which can make the squelch much easier.

  13. Add a button in UI to reboot the camera

    Would like to initiate a reboot from the app

  17. 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.

  18. Auto-populate camera login and password

    The process for adding cameras as we know is fairly easy. In a 6 camera system like what I have, having the camera login and password copied from the 1st camera added to the remaining cameras as they are added would be helpful.
