    Amcrest 960H Video Security System with Four 800+ TVL Weatherproof Cameras, 65' IR LED Night Vision, 960H DVR and 500GB Hard Drive ...............................I am totally in love with this system...even tho , they need to correct to set up instructions.......When I went in to login, using the factory set password (12345) it would not work....No matter how many times I tried it would not let me into the system

    The amcrest security camera is excellent & easy to set up, it will basically guide you thru, watch the u tube videos , takes a few hours to run the wires, very good day time camera vision, night vision good to 15' a lot more with I. R. Illumination, very good value for the money

    I am requesting OWLR support of Amcrest IP2M-842 ProHD cams and/or Amcrest NV-4108 NVR; need alternative to setting up Blue Iris server PC, as not all my clients want a PC running 24/7/365.

    The OWLR Android camera app works flawlessly with my 4 Foscam cameras and the Amcrest IP3M-943 but does not find my Amcrest IP2M-841. Both Amcrest cameras work with the Amcrest app and are viewable on my PC over the Internet through DDNS and IP connections.

    Hey All,

    Version 2.1+ of "OWLR Multi IP Cam" on Android has basic amcrest support, there is a specific version coming out this week which has a few more fixes in it.

    Really sorry about the delay!

    Just ordered an Amcrest IP2M-841 ProHD 1080P and would love to use it with OWLR Android app.

    I don't blame OWLR so much and Amcrest and their convoluted port support, every other camera I have is easily setup for port forwarding and remote support. The Amcrest only works with their app and nothing else that I have tried so far.
