  1. 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!

    • 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.

        • Support H.264

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

              • 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.

                        • Add IOS support for Amcrest IP3M-943. Manual config found the camera a few times, but wouldn't stay connected. Now won't connect at all.

                          Add support for Amcrest IP3M-943.
                          The manual set-up worked the first time I did it, but wouldn't stay connected and kept asking for the sign-in credentials. Now it won't complete the set-up, giving an error.

                              • Possible to support D-Link DCS-8000LH?

                                The new D-Link DCS-8000LH was not discovered by OWLR.
                                http://us.dlink.com/products/cameras/mini-hd-wi-fi-camera-dcs-8000lh/

                                The camera has no wired ethernet so the initial configuration is done over Bluetooth BLE using a smartphone app.

                                I could not find that there is any web administration interface available for configuration.
                                But here is what I could reverse engineer about its network capabilities.

                                • add support for camera preset positions

                                  Some (all?) Foscam cameras allow you to configure preset positions that you can select to aim the camera. Can Owlr offer support for this feature?

                                        • Wansview q1

                                          Support for all wansview cameras. They (wansview) are working hard on fixing firmware bugs, but the iOS app lets it down unfortunatly, especially playback of files. I would love to have the solid support of OWLR with my wansviews.
