I suggest that the OWLR app...

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.

    No IR control for FI8910W Foscam. Camera has them. No way to turn them on or off in APP. Is there a fix?

  • Jo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I just set up 3 Foscam Cameras, only the latest model turn on the IR function automatically, where the rest of the 2 default to off. Without a control button for IR how can I control that with your app?

    If the camera resets, the IR automatically defaults to the on position. Being to able to control this through the app would be beneficial.

    Hey all - we are looking into this. Sadly, the problem is making the interface match the state of the camera. Sadly, the system is incredibly slow (the 8900s) and so we needed to spend time in handling the state of the app.

    We are moving to update for the iPad and other table formats - so please give us a little bit - we hear the pain.

    Still looking how to toggle the infrared feature on and off for the FI8910W. Thanks
