We will add all of the following cameras if more votes come through for the request!
UPDATE 6/12/2016: We have the scripts for presets for most of our supported cameras. We will implement them soon but there needs to be a bit of refactoring before we get them in!
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.82 votes
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!
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.69 votes
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
Allow user to select a grid type (4, 6, 9) cameras and show them in landscape view in parallel.61 votes
This is planned for DVR/NVR support and should have it for Android first and then iOS.
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!61 votes
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.
When motion is detected it begins to record56 votes

Currently re-writing all of our scripts. Once we’ve done this should be easy to add this feature.
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.51 votes
This feature is planned as well – it requires a bit of work on both the camera interface, our app interface and our server interface. But it is in the pipeline for more control.
Allow you to record the current stream as a video with sound to the camera roll.48 votes
Due to the rewrite, we needed to deprioritize for the next set of features. But it is planned.
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.45 votes
We have had too many people complain if we remove the World Cameras – but we will likely offer it in the Advanced Settings in the future.
Will help with home automation44 votes
As usual honesty is the best policy; we are still wanting to do this but its a long term goal.
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 view41 votes
UPDATE 21/12/2016: A different layout that supports multiple live views will take a while in terms of design and implementation but its definitely something we are looking at.
In addition to Snoozing, it would be nice to schedule when there shouldn't be motion so we only receive alerts during that time.38 votes
Very important if using a mobile device on noisy environment...35 votes
I would like to have the ability to export my configuration to apply settings to another device without having to manually set it up again.28 votes
Audio support for D link 932 L20 votes
We will be addressing in the next months.
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.18 votes
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.
to watch through the windows without glare .16 votes
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.13 votes
We are working on it.
