  1. I would like to watch online 2,3 and etc. cameras at same time.

    In my case, I would like to see several cameras at same time, where I can choose the grid type. For example, 2 cams will be in full screen where it will be divided in 2 parts in iPad.

  2. Add ability to hide unused buttons in iOS app

    The interface gets more and more cluttered with each release.
    First we got "motion detection" button that cannot be hidden. Now "push to talk" joined the pack. This is especially troublesome because I am genuinely worried that I might push it by accident and wake up the baby. Please let users hide buttons they don't want to use!

  8. Add setting that disables using gesture control to pan tilt the camera

    It could be annoying that the camera pan-tilt position changes because you accidentally swiped the screen while viewing the camera, especially when the camera is slow to react to the pan-tilt commands sent to it (not sure if it's communication delay or due to the app or the camera) which makes it very difficult to reset to the original pan-tilt position.

    With the joystick there, it's kind of redundant to have another way of controlling the pan-tilt. It might be nice for someone, but having an option of enabling/disabling the gesture control will be nice for everyone.

  9. favorite camera selectable (for direct and fast view)

    It should be possible to select one of the available cameras to be the favorite one. This camera would be viewed in full-screen mode, every time the App is started. Ideally without the OWLR startup message.

    For example, if one have a camera installed at the front door of the house. It would be nice to see, who the bell ring, just with one fingertip on the App symbol. This should be possible, as fast as possible.

    We are looking into this – at the present time, we have to focus on generating some of the more complex features while raising money. We will get to other layout options on the phone and on the tablets in the coming year.

  11. 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.

  14. Foscam FN3108XE 720P Security Surveillance NVR Kit

    I suggest that the OWLR app Foscam FN3108XE 720P Security Surveillance NVR Kit. The current Foscam NVR app requires you to have a online account and you can only view the camera on 1 device at a time. Please put this on your list of new products. Thank you.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
