  2. IR option for older Foscams

    I really like your application. However I have 5 older model cameras (F18910W) that I cannot control the infrared lights on. Just curious if you will ever be updating the application to add this option for older model cameras.

    Would even be happy to pay for this update.

  3. Android App lacks PTZ control for Foscam R2(V4)

    The current (as of April 2018) Android app lacks PTZ controls for the Foscam R2 (at least for my V4).

    Any chance of getting this added? My other, really old Foscam cameras work fine (w/ PTZ).

    Thanks for considering!

  5. Toggle Motion Detection

    I use OWLR with the Foscam C1 HD camera. Your app works very well, much better than the paid apps too.

    I use the C1 as a baby monitor and would like to toggle the Motion/Sound detecion from the OWLR app

    The only way to do that now is to open the focam app-click on the camera-settings-alert-activity detection/sound detection-on/off

    Also Video recording/iPad support will be awesome.

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  12. add support for camera preset positions

    Some (all?) Foscam cameras allow you to configure preset positions that you can select to aim the camera. Can Owlr offer support for this feature?

  13. Access to all Foscam video streams (main, sub, etc)

    Allow for the Detailed view to support the high bit-rate stream and the substream (lower bit rate) when accessing from some control either on the screen or via the Settings.

  14. 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 :)

  15. Enable landscape view of 4 or more camera in parallel

    Allow user to select a grid type (4, 6, 9) cameras and show them in landscape view in parallel.

  20. Alert Zones

    Would be great if we could "color in" a part of the camera's view where we want motion alerts to come from. That way I could exclude the window with the waving branches, or the busy street out front.
