  1. I only want motion detection during closed hours. Right now there isnt a way to specify a time period - ie 5pm until 8am

    Specify blocks of time that the camera will send out alerts - such as 5:00 pm to 8:00 am.

  3. Add Yi Dome cameras asap!

    Since those silly Chinese Foscam producers completely backdoored you guys with direct sales. How about creating the best multi cam brand platform?!

    Not that you are not on your way, but we have Yi Cameras that are hot on Amazon right now and aren’t going away with their rating and price point. Can you make them compatible?

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  10. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. DSC-933L iphone app bug?

    I'm using a DNS server to connect to my Dlink camera. On Android, I can add camera manually using external IP and it will take my username and password. I can view it outside of my network. On iPhone, it gives me a credentials error, but only when I add it manually. If I add it through discover, it will take my credentials. However, I can't view the camera outside of my network. Since everything works perfectly on Android, I can safely assume this is an iPhone bug.

  18. 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.

  19. Export all camera settings as email attachment

    For people with multiple devices, would be nice to export all camera settings and email as attachment. Then open attachment on other device to import all cameras and settings into Owlr app. Foscam Pro app has this feature.
