  2. 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.

  3. Remove World Cameras

    Any way to remove the public webcams from the app? It gives me a HUGE false since of security to see all these camera feeds along side my personal cameras.

  4. Support Other Camera Account Privillages

    Original title - Viewing cameras without needing adminstrator rights

    Hey Daniel here - Just merged this idea with few duplicates, makes it easer for my to reply to everyone. I've also tweaked the title to make it more generic for all cameras rather than just Foscams.

    It should be possible to set up/view Foscam camera streams for example as "operator" or "guest" as well and not only with "administrator" rights. This would be much more secure.

    UPDATE 12/12/2016:

    I have merged a few other ideas into this one, makes it easier for me to reply to you all!

    We know this is a potential problem for some – we have needed to revamp the authentication features for the iOS app – which we are still addressing. It definitely something we are looking into though!

  5. 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 :)

  7. Background Audio - Play audio when app is closed

    I Love this app. I do wish, for those of us who use their cameras as baby monitors, that it had the ability to provide audio for the camera even when the app is minimized and the screen is locked similar to what Pandora does. I know I don't want my screen on all night while I am watching a sleeping baby.

    UPDATE 6/12/2016:

    We are aware of this – and it will require a rework of the video player to support the audio separate from the video and to be able to keep the battery use at a minimum.

    We actually have someone looking at this right now. So we are one step closer to implementing this feature

  8. live view of multiple cameras

    I would like that the main screen supports live view of multiple cameras, so i dont have to tap on every single camera to get live view

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. 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.
