  1. Amcrest IP2M-841

    Please add support for the Amcrest IP2M-841 ProHD 1080P Wifi Camera. One of your admins (Chris) responded to a request saying "the latest Android OWLR/Foscam/Amcrest versions support Amcrest." Unfortunately, the statement is incorrect as of the time of this post. I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) and have the most updated firmware for my Amcrest cameras, but the OWLR app is still unable to find my cameras. Please help! Thank you!

    • IR on/off button for all supported cameras

      It would be nice to add a button for switching between day and night on IR lights! An on off switch for the IR lights! It is the only thing that is missing from the app!

        We support IR for all cameras which have it.

        If it is missing please contact support – you might have a camera which has a non-standard product name.

              • upgrade for full compatibility w/ new Foscam devices.

                I love the app (on Android), and it works great w/ my older Foscam device. I purchased a newer model, and the app won't let me talk through camera. A patch here would be REALLY helpful.

                  • Bluetooth support

                    With phones doing away with earphone jacks, allowing audio to go through Bluetooth would be great so as not to disturb others around you when checking cameras remotely.

                      Let us set the http port AND the rtsp port on iOS.
                      This is already possible on android.

                          The Snapshot view of the FI9800P works when you're viewing multiple cameras. As soon as you tap on the screen to view the camera the image never loads.

                          • 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.

                                • Reverse PT directions for ceiling mount

                                  When camera is mounted on ceiling it is set to reverse and flip image. In your app the PT controls are reversed and there is no way to change this. Perhaps you could read these variables from the cam and swap direction accordingly.

                                          I want to have a password that supports characters other than just letters and numbers. I want to support punctuation, symbols and such.

                                            Working on increasing the range of characters. We had a security feature that eliminated certain characters due to the details of the cameras, but was a little bit overzealous. We are releasing a fix in 0.9.7
