  1. Saving alerts

    Works fine with Oscam O6, but still needs:
    -Video recording
    -Snapshot of current view
    -Local storage on device
    -Email alert for those

  6. Support Amcrest IP8M-2496EB

    Because this is one of the hottest cameras on the market right now, and will only get more popular.

    It's Amazon's #1 new release in bullet surveillance cameras.

    This model currently offers the most megapixels per dollar of any Amcrest IP camera I'm aware of.

    Also I have two of them coming in the mail and would looooove to use the owlr app :D

  7. 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.

  10. Implement Security Enhancements

    Hi OWLR Team!

    I'd love to be able to access my cameras behind my VPN. From other apps, I can access computers and my cameras via their internal IPs when my phone is connected to my VPN, but I cannot seem to connect to my cameras via their internal IP from OWLR while connected to the VPN.

    Also, most or all of my cameras now support HTTPS protocol. It would also be a great enhancement if OWLR supported this secure protocol too. If it already does please disregard, I just didn't seem to be able to connect to the cameras…

    Hi Michael,

    Our delay is not because we do not want to; we do – but security is our top concern.

    It’s due to limited resources and time – we are a startup. Add your votes to support this feature here. This will help show us the demand for the feature, affecting how we prioritise in future.

    I still need help:
    If you still need help, please get in touch with us using the in-app feedback button or email us here. We are more than happy to help!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. FI9821P Camera Movement support

    As of version 2.6.4, the FI9821P camera movement is not supported. I can see the video stream, but there are no arrows showing up for camera movement.

  17. My Foscam FI9805 just stopped working as of 3-10-2018, it is a great camera, only three years old.

    I would like to see you support older Foscam’s that has not given me any problems as of until now sense you stopped supporting it. Thanks

  19. 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.
