    • 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.

      • 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!

              • 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.

                • 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?

                  • Listen to audio for multiple cameras simultaneously

                    When using cameras as monitors for multiple childrens rooms it would be helpful to be able to hear both (or more than 2) simultaneously from the multi-image screen.

                      • 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.

                        • Support Foscam FI9928P with pan & optical zoom

                          Foscam FI9928P is not listed as a supported camera but the OWLR app for the iPad allows gesture control for both pan and tilt of the Foscam FI9928P camera and works great!

                          The OWLR app for the Android version does not show PTZ controls or allow gesture control of pan and tilt. Both apps do not allow optical zoom.

                                      • Possible to support D-Link DCS-8000LH?

                                        The new D-Link DCS-8000LH was not discovered by OWLR.
                                        http://us.dlink.com/products/cameras/mini-hd-wi-fi-camera-dcs-8000lh/

                                        The camera has no wired ethernet so the initial configuration is done over Bluetooth BLE using a smartphone app.

                                        I could not find that there is any web administration interface available for configuration.
                                        But here is what I could reverse engineer about its network capabilities.

                                        • I wish there was a button to disable notifications rom all camera when entering my house and reenable all cameras when leaving the house.

                                          A quick to disable/enable all cameras’ notifications when entering/leaving the house—like turning a security system on or off.
