      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!

    • SD-card playback

      Wouldn't it be great to have a SD-card playback option? For example for the Foscam FI9853EP

      • 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

          • 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.

                    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.

                              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!

                              • Add a 12 hour option on notif. snooze

                                Please add a 12 hour option on the motion detection snooze feature. Most people with 9-5 jobs come home in the evening and are home until the morning, 8 hrs isn't enough and 24 is too long.

                                I also voted for the motion detection scheduler idea but I figured the 12hr snooze would be a little easier to implement until a scheduler is available. Thanks.

                                    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.

                                      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.

                                        • Change Password on Installed Cameras

                                          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.
