  1. Dark mode

    Have a dark mode for the app. I use this for viewing baby cams at night. The white UI bits are too bright at night.

  5. Foscam FI9826 Camera Features


    1. Provide a true optical zoom function for these cameras. The current app only has a low-quality digital zoom, but the cameras have a 3X optical zoom.


    2. Provide full brightness/contrast/sharpness/color controls. The cameras are almost useless looking outdoors without this.

    We need support for cameras that have H.264 video streaming. Some DLINK cameras have this (DCS2332L).

    We are looking into this – at the present time, we have to focus on generating some of the more complex features while raising money. We will get to other layout options on the phone and on the tablets in the coming year.

  9. Support Wansview 1080p NCM625GA

    The Wansview 1080p NCM625GA is a confirmed camera that has a similar price point to newer Foscam IP camera's but without the terrible firmware issues. The Wansview NCM625GA is sold on amazon as Wansview 1080P 2.0MP WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera, Full HD.

    The Wansview is known to work easily with Zoneminder on Linux in addition to Mac and Window's platforms.

  10. 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.

  13. Add Lorex camera support

    I'm using Lorex MCNC100. It supports RTSP video feed.

    The password for video seed is set separately. It also requires camera ID as part of the URL.

    The complete URL is rtsp://<address>:554/<cameraid>.<playvideo_password>

    Video is mp4v (H264). Audio is PCM MU-LAW (mlaw).

    If OWLR can add generic RTSP support, it is good enough to expend the list of supported devices.

  15. Support for the QD900wifi

    This is a reasonably priced outdoor camera. I've started moving away from the old cameras and I hope to continue using this great app for the new Escam QD900 cams.
    Thanks,
    Ken

  17. Several suggestions and reports

    I'm pasting my iOS App Store review here to make sure it gets heard. The App Store has a dendency to over analyze reviews...

    This app is great! I was able to set up my camera within a couple minutes. It scanned my network and found them all and preloaded the correct IP information. I am also able to connect remotely with my current network configuration.

    I have it four stars because I have a couple concerns. Here they are;


    1. I do not see the option to use HTTPS when connecting. This is a big deal. Please add this ASAP.…

    UPDATE Mar 2016: wow. Sometimes, the best plans are up for funny. All of the things stated below are true but we are in the midst of a proper rewrite of the iOS codebase – so it may take a little longer. Humble apologies.

    ORIGINAL: Justin -

    Thanks for the feedback here – want to make sure you get the answers:

    1. HTTPS is on the roadmap – sometime in October.
    2. On the 2132 and 5222 – we do support the PTZ. But we are working on the other features.
    3. If you are using a VPN, then you are always on your local network if they are on the same network – so you do not need the external details – unless you wish to access them through your home network providers router.
    4. We are on the Sort feature – we had it a…

  18. Automatically adjust video quality depending on network conditions

    Please make your app support dynamic quality switching, automatically adjusting to the network conditions to ensure a smooth playback all the time.
