    UPDATE: 7/12/2016

    Note: Changed Request title

    Definitely something we will be adding in the future.

    Workaround/ fix for Android:

    VPN are not supported because of the way our app binds to the port.

    I personally use a VPN on my Android phone; the way I get around the issue is discovery and setup the camera’s without my VPN turned on. Once you’ve done this and all the camera’s are setup, you can then switch your VPN back on.

    I’ve only tested this on my phone (Samsung S6), as the other devices in the office do not have VPN setup on them, so this isn’t a guaranteed fix.

    Daniel :)

    I had previously added my Foscam C1 using my home WiFi network. Owlr would not connect to the camera over OpenVPN while my phone was on a cell network. I was able to connect to a public WIFI and I tried the bypass suggested by Rick on 2017/10/26. Owlr claimed it updated the Internal address but I still could not connect over the VPN. either while connected via the public WIFI or cell network. I am not sure if it is relevant but the Network Settings -> Internet/Local configuration displayed the public WiFi SSID. The Foscam viewer had no problems connecting to the C1. OpenVPN allows me to route to my home network, so I suspect Owlr is doing something special instead of just trying to access the Foscam C1.

    Has there been any update on this request? The Foscam-provided viewer is becoming increasingly less usable. The OWLR Foscam IP Viewer is more stable and provides better video quality, but lacks the ability to toggle the in-camera (Foscam C1) motion detection/alerting feature. I appreciate that OWLR provides Motion Alerts as part of its cloud service, but I would rather use the in-camera capability on an as-required basis.
