    Hi Ken.

    First of all, thanks for the feedback and thank you for using OWLR.

    We do support Foscam cameras as indicated here: https://owlr.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/458563-supported-cameras-for-owlr-apps and its very easy to setup your camera for internal as well as external access. All you have to do is to follow the following steps.

    Connect your camera to your WiFi Network or your home router. For most cameras, for the camera’s first set up, it will need to be plugged into your router via an ethernet cable.
    On your phone, connect to your Home WiFi or the WiFi to which the camera is connected.
    Open OWLR App.
    Select “Find My Cameras” option. The app will automatically find your camera.
    Press Setup and follow the instructions.
    During the Setup process, you will be asked whether you would like the app to set up external access. If you would only like to set up the…

  2. Please add F1982ip

    Power Camera does not work but lights is on.

  5. FI9821P Issues Connecting, one connects they other doesn't

    Camera: FI9821P v2
    Camera: FI9821P v3

    Hi there i am a bit confused.
    i have added two cameras to Foscam OWL app.
    They both connect with TEST when app is stated i can see them on.
    yet one camera works, they other camera just tells me, "COULD NOT CONNECT TO THE CAMERA".
    i do an TEST EXTERNAL ACCESS and says. ""SUCCESS! CAMERA ACCESSIBLE EXTERNALLY"
    yes when i click on camera, won't let me in.
    one camera is viewable the other isn't.
    Any understanding of why?

    Hi Keith. Our Owlr app has the easiest set-up process of them all – it’s more like a plug-and-play app. It walks you through the installation process and guides you. You don’t need to be a geeky to install it. All the best!

  8. Allow me to log onto my cameras

    App auto find my cameras but won’t let me log in

  19. Amcrest IP2M-841

    Please add support for the Amcrest IP2M-841 ProHD 1080P Wifi Camera. One of your admins (Chris) responded to a request saying "the latest Android OWLR/Foscam/Amcrest versions support Amcrest." Unfortunately, the statement is incorrect as of the time of this post. I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) and have the most updated firmware for my Amcrest cameras, but the OWLR app is still unable to find my cameras. Please help! Thank you!

  20. Collective mail only once every configurable time periode

    When it's busy in the observed area, I get an alert and mail every view minutes. Sometimes there are alredy multiple (2 or 3) gifs in one mail, if there were alerts short in a row. So there is already a function for colletive mails. It would be great if I can configure a time periode (e. g. 30 minutes), so I get only one mail every (in this case) 30 minutes at most. But that mail should contain all the gifs from all alerts since the last mail. So I won't miss anything.
