      • Support Amcrest IP8M-2496EB

        Because this is one of the hottest cameras on the market right now, and will only get more popular.

        It's Amazon's #1 new release in bullet surveillance cameras.

        This model currently offers the most megapixels per dollar of any Amcrest IP camera I'm aware of.

        Also I have two of them coming in the mail and would looooove to use the owlr app :D

        • Enable custom paths in the camera's URL

          Some IP cameras have paths in the URL, such as "/stream". It would be nice to have support for custom paths.

          • Support uniview ip cameras

            Support for the new Uniview ip cameras as well as hikvision and Dahua. They all support the Onvif protocol so supporting the Onvif would let these ip cameras as well as many others work.

            • Support Foscam FI9928P with pan & optical zoom

              Foscam FI9928P is not listed as a supported camera but the OWLR app for the iPad allows gesture control for both pan and tilt of the Foscam FI9928P camera and works great!

              The OWLR app for the Android version does not show PTZ controls or allow gesture control of pan and tilt. Both apps do not allow optical zoom.

                John Mambambo responded

                This camera is now fully supported except for the Listening and PTT features.

              • Connect using HTTPS

                I do not see it clearly anywhere, but the feature to use HTTPS instead of HTTP would be great.

                  • Android App lacks PTZ control for Foscam R2(V4)

                    The current (as of April 2018) Android app lacks PTZ controls for the Foscam R2 (at least for my V4).

                    Any chance of getting this added? My other, really old Foscam cameras work fine (w/ PTZ).

                    Thanks for considering!

                    • Add Panasonic Homehawk camera

                      Panasonic homehawk wireless camera is a main product at Costco. Their native app lacks the efficiency of Owlr.

                        • Sync Cameras Between Devices

                          In the Foscam app, you can add a camera via iPhone and it will appear when you open the Foscam app on my iPad. The Foscam app syncs through the user's cloud subscription (they give you a free account, then bombard you with ads to buy more storage). Perhaps the sync feature could be part of the OWLR Alert subscription: the camera data could be in the user's account, and the cameras sync when they log in.

                                      • Allow resizing of the individual camera views on the main window

                                        I am currently only viewing 2 cameras and they sit in tiny windows at the top left of the screen, why can’t these windows be reliable or auto best fit the available screen space, this should apply to both landscape or portrate, for instance with only 2 cameras having the iPad in portrate mode should fill the screen with the 2 camera video feeds one above the other.
