  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Supports Foscam cameras using the P2P port address and P2P UID for Port Forwarding.

        Would like the ability to use the P2P UID and P2P port address for port forwarding for Foscam cameras.

          • Swipe sideways to switch cameras

            When watching a camera, swipe left and right to view the next or previous camera when multiple cameras are available.

                        We are looking into it. We have discovered that many people like the digital zoom with the buttons – whereas we had planned on supporting only optical zoom with the buttons and pinch-to-zoom for the zoom in.

                      • 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.

                          • 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!

                                  • 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.
