        • VPN compatibility

          I use a VPN to connect to my home. Once connected, the private IP address of the camera becomes available to Owlr, even though I am not connected via WiFi.
          However, when I am not connected with WiFi, Owlr will only try to use the 'external' address.
          It would be nice for the App to send an ARP request first to check if the internal address is available, before falling back to the external address.

          • Support for Amcrest 3MP 2K PTZ Model IP3M-941B -- not connecting with Android Amcrest/Foscam app

            The current apps as of 2017-Nov-27 do not seem to support connecting to the Amcrest IP3M-941 indoor PTZ camera, though it is to be listed on the "Supported Cameras" spreadsheet.

            Automatic Scan does not find the camera. Manual configuration sees it, but gives the following Error Message: "Oops... Sorry, looks like the camera you are trying to connect too isn't supported." Camera has the (only) latest firmware available at this time.

            Thanks OWLR for all you do!

              • Motion Alerts: play a prerecorded sound or verbal response when motion is detected.

                When motion is detected have owler send a short recorded message or sound like a siren to the camera.

                  Hmm, this is a tough one. Although we understand the need for the extra security, a noise that is too intrusive can quickly become tiresome, particularly in the case of false alerts.

                • Motion Detection Schedule

                  In addition to Snoozing, it would be nice to schedule when there shouldn't be motion so we only receive alerts during that time.

                    • Change the notification sound within the app

                      The OWLR app uses the default notification sound if you choose to have the app notify you of motion alerts with a Push notification. It would be beneficial to have the app allow customization of this sound so it doesn't sound the same as other apps on my phone.

                          • Edit default record time for motion detection

                            I love the. gif files I get when the motion detection option behind to record. I am fine with it being .gif but need it to be longer in duration, like for the duration of motion!

                            Makes no sense that even though the is still motion, it does not get captured. Or option to record actual low-res video instead?

                                Would be great if we could "color in" a part of the camera's view where we want motion alerts to come from. That way I could exclude the window with the waving branches, or the busy street out front.

                                    • Add Controls

                                      You folks just added alerts. Great, but what we really need for Foscam cameras is the ability to turn certain settings on / off like motion detect so we can send our own alerts through the camera's own funtionality. Turn it on when needed, off when not. A couple other basic setting switches would also be nice. Not sure why I would pay a monthly fee to send alerts through your system? Add needed functionalty and I'll gladly pay for the app.

                                        Original title - Viewing cameras without needing adminstrator rights

                                        Hey Daniel here - Just merged this idea with few duplicates, makes it easer for my to reply to everyone. I've also tweaked the title to make it more generic for all cameras rather than just Foscams.

                                        It should be possible to set up/view Foscam camera streams for example as "operator" or "guest" as well and not only with "administrator" rights. This would be much more secure.

                                          UPDATE 12/12/2016:

                                          I have merged a few other ideas into this one, makes it easier for me to reply to you all!

                                          We know this is a potential problem for some – we have needed to revamp the authentication features for the iOS app – which we are still addressing. It definitely something we are looking into though!

                                        • Background Audio - Play audio when app is closed

                                          I Love this app. I do wish, for those of us who use their cameras as baby monitors, that it had the ability to provide audio for the camera even when the app is minimized and the screen is locked similar to what Pandora does. I know I don't want my screen on all night while I am watching a sleeping baby.

                                            UPDATE 6/12/2016:

                                            We are aware of this – and it will require a rework of the video player to support the audio separate from the video and to be able to keep the battery use at a minimum.

                                            We actually have someone looking at this right now. So we are one step closer to implementing this feature
