  1. Add a sound alert feature

    To make use of cameras as baby and pet monitors, a sound alert would be greatly welcome. Foscam has this in their app and it's about the only thing IN their app that works and has been useful. I like OWLR overall way more but the lack of sound alerts keeps it from being my preferred camera app.

  5. Set alert periods

    Would be great to set alert periods ather than always on except when you trigger a snooze. For example I don't want alerts during the night in the room my pet wanders around in but I do want alarms during the day in this room when I am out.

  12. Change order of cameras

    Actually, it's impossible to change order of cameras. The last camera installed appear on first position, and it's impossible to change. (Sorry for my english i'm french).

  13. Support external access to multiple cameras with the same port.

    The Foscam app seems to support it but I like your software better. Your app tries to change the port else it fails but the Foscam app seems to work (fails frequently).

  16. For sd card enabled cameras build a control to review the last x (configurable) minutes of video.

    For sd card enabled cameras build a control to review the last x (configurable) minutes of video. Would also be nice to play back at something other than real time.

  17. Add a 12 hour option on notif. snooze

    Please add a 12 hour option on the motion detection snooze feature. Most people with 9-5 jobs come home in the evening and are home until the morning, 8 hrs isn't enough and 24 is too long.

    I also voted for the motion detection scheduler idea but I figured the 12hr snooze would be a little easier to implement until a scheduler is available. Thanks.

    I would like the ability to Save a backup to Dropbox and iCloud. This way, if you corrupt your settings, or your better half wants to easily configure her phone, you can Import the saved backup.
