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.29 votes
Wow – did not know this. We will look into this in the coming months. If there are others who need this, please add your support.
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.25 votes
I can see how it would be useful, may need some feedback on how it would be implemented. Great idea more long term though.
Would like the ability to use the P2P UID and P2P port address for port forwarding for Foscam cameras.7 votes
Foscam has a lock-down on this feature – they do it very differently than other providers and may have some challenges supporting it without their help. We also are worried about using P2P since it means that the cameras continuously communicate to the outside world. Some people have expressed concern about this: https://krebsonsecurity.com/2016/02/this-is-why-people-fear-the-internet-of-things/

UPDATE 6/12/2016: We are looking into Hikvision cameras – but it will likely be in 2017.
When watching a camera, swipe left and right to view the next or previous camera when multiple cameras are available.19 votes
We are considering this feature – the real challenge is that some of our users love the pan/tilt on the camera via gestures – so this makes it more difficult. But we will seriously consider this.

Good idea for security.
Would love to see a Windows 10 PC desktop version of this software37 votes
Maybe, it depends how many users actually want this and how much effort it would take on our behalf. Even so, this will not be the case for a long time.
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.44 votes
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.
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.6 votes
We are currently completing a rewrite of the app – and will investigate which one to include next.
Have a dark mode for the app. I use this for viewing baby cams at night. The white UI bits are too bright at night.3 votes
Oh, I do love a dark theme myself. Won’t be high priority but love the idea
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!3 votes
This is really good point. In the future we’d like a more complete settings page with the ability to turn off UI elements.
Incorporate Touch ID to access apps preventing unauthorized access while the phone is in unlock mode6 votes
Interesting idea, we will look into it. Probably will be a longer term idea
I would like the ability to Save a backup to Dropbox and iCloud. This way, if you corrupt your settings, or your better half wants to easily configure her phone, you can Import the saved backup.19 votes
We love this feature – but worry that placing personal data out of your control could be a challenge. But we will investigate.
Is it possible to add support for the Netgear Arlo cameras?7 votes
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.25 votes
Please see the discussion on swiping to get to the next camera. It is likely we will support this feature to enable the earlier one.
