      • Can you please add audio support for DCS-933L?

        Audio support is available for the DCS-933L. It is a shame that you discharged the problem two years ago as not available and never addressed the issue any more.

          • Turn off motion without signing back up

            let users deactivate motion sensors with a single press of a button without going through 7 screens of explanations and sales pitch to pay 99 cents a month

              Hi, thank you for getting in touch. There has been a bug that our technical team has been working tooth and nail to solve and it addresses this issue. We are really sorry about that.

            • work with amcrest IP4M-1056EW

              please update soonest to support latest Amcrest cameras, IP4M-1056EW is the specific camera I have that my App (Android) says that there is currently no support for. Foscam/Amcrest app is ridiculously useless, please save us.

                        • Amcrest IP2M-841

                          Please add support for the Amcrest IP2M-841 ProHD 1080P Wifi Camera. One of your admins (Chris) responded to a request saying "the latest Android OWLR/Foscam/Amcrest versions support Amcrest." Unfortunately, the statement is incorrect as of the time of this post. I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) and have the most updated firmware for my Amcrest cameras, but the OWLR app is still unable to find my cameras. Please help! Thank you!

                          • Collective mail only once every configurable time periode

                            When it's busy in the observed area, I get an alert and mail every view minutes. Sometimes there are alredy multiple (2 or 3) gifs in one mail, if there were alerts short in a row. So there is already a function for colletive mails. It would be great if I can configure a time periode (e. g. 30 minutes), so I get only one mail every (in this case) 30 minutes at most. But that mail should contain all the gifs from all alerts since the last mail. So I won't miss anything.

                            • Option to add NVR with playback (FOSCAM)

                              Just like the Hikvision app, to add a NVR instead of add/port forwarding all the cameras one by one. Playback would be fine too :)

                                • 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.

                                        • upgrade for full compatibility w/ new Foscam devices.

                                          I love the app (on Android), and it works great w/ my older Foscam device. I purchased a newer model, and the app won't let me talk through camera. A patch here would be REALLY helpful.
