I have found support is very responsive. In just the past 6 months of use, not only are they now fully supported, the app has steadily improved in functionality, steaming, and stability. Used their old app for quite awhile and upgraded as soon as their latest iteration came out. As a security feature some devices and networks may limit the number of users at any one time. There are some nice free apps that have the listen and talk feature.
My cam is connected with PoE, why does the app keep saying it's on wifi? Stick to the free foscam viewer app much more reliable. Audio might be delayed depending on many factors, including device speed, phone network speed, remote network speed, camera model or number of users. Please be aware that ApkPlz only share the original and free pure apk installer for Foscam Camera Viewer Pro 4. The app constantly crashes and fails to load cameras that still work fine in the original app, Foscam Pro Surveillance. When I first started using it, one of my cameras wasn't even supported, while a couple were poorly supported.
My brother could watch from 3,000 miles away, and I who lived closer could watch on my iPhone or iPad from anywhere with Internet. The user support for this is poor; yet, they beg you to not write negative reviews. It seems that if I try to pan a camera just a short distance when it is anywhere but near either end of its travel, it will continue panning on its own to the extreme end of its travel as though I had kept my finger on the pan button for an extended period I have the speed set on slow. Use Foscam cameras to keep an eye on your home, to monitor entrance ways, to ensure your elderly parents are safe, or to check-in on your children. All version this app apk available with us: 1. I saw the updated 2 version and decided to buy it thinking it would be better, well it's not.
Second and most important, the connection is intermittent. It takes only couple minutes to fully rescan your home network. Note than I am able to view and control my remote Foscams just fine using the ie plugin that came with the cameras, and another vendor's home automation app on my iphone. More than 25 major updates per year with new features! Of the 200 or so apps I have no other app is updated as frequently as this one. I was happy with the old app, so I paid for this new version expecting it to be better.
Last time I updated firmware, it hosed my cameras so I was lothe to do it, but it went smoothly this time. On some occasions, such as multiple users attempting to send too many conflicting changes to the camera, a camera can react to ensure security and sanity by revoking remote connections. We have also lost the lullaby option on our Fosbaby F1 after the update. I had try to email no answer no response. In my opinion, it's definitely worth the few dollars I paid.
While I like the layout of the app, there are some real problems with its functionality. Has good security and good visual via iPad or iPhone. The sound doesn't appear to be coming through consistently, either. I give it 5 stars because I'm pretty sure it's the camera s. Trying to access the cams now through the app is very sluggish and random in terms of connection speed. The app is intended for use by domestic Foscam users who have dedicated access to their own cameras.
It seems the pictures are clearer — not sure about that. I had try numerous times to contact them for support I never got a response. With Foscam Cloud, you can set up motion detection on your Foscam cameras and view recorded images or videos when motion is triggered, right from your phone! What a lousy advertising app, foscam. Here we are, quite a long time down the road and the flaws back then are still flaws now. The developer seems to genuinely care about the feedback. Update: upgrading firmware on the cameras brought back access over cell service. Forget any other app out there - trust me I've spent wasted lots of money to get here.
I have a very fast internet connection at home and in my phone and still slow feed back. I like the look and feel of the new app. I wish the app had a failover capability so I could use the app while I'm on the same lan as the cameras. If you want to contact the maker of the app your are out of luck this people do not care about you. It's the only app you need for controlling your Foscam cameras. I wish I had downloaded it first.
