Q-See is DEFINITELY better! Night Owl randomly stops, won't connect to the server no matter how many times I configure it, 24/7 support link is broken, and no videos cover it. I need 8 more cameras but I'll buy a 16 channel Q-See with 8 cameras and use the Night Owl cameras with them. At least they work. (For now...)
Doesn't work! What's the point of security cameras, if I can only access them about once a month. I haven't changed any of my info and the app decides when it is willing to show the actual feed. Yesterday while my husband was home they worked, today while I'm home alone just black boxes and it says it is playing
Galaxy Nexus 5 After a few days finally called tech support and they answered most of my questions. What tech support did not know was that with a Nexus 5 running android 4.1.2 it worked fine then I updated to Lollipop 5 it worked for a few days then stopped working. At the same time a new update 5.0.1 came out. I updated my phone and voila it worked again. Great system if you know what you are doing. If not call tech support.
no more support just got off the phone with tech support. night owl lite is no longer supported with newer Android OS, so write down all the information on your device list, ip address, domain name, etc. and download meyepro. same developer i think, so it looks almost the same, and you need the same info. only difference is once you get one online and viewable, you need to click the tiles and add the other ones from the same device. boom, works perfectly. i have android 5.o on galaxy s5 and i just did this. it worked.
Only works on older phones. Tip. This won't work on Android 5 or higher, download the app called "MEye", it works on Nightowl DVR's. I got a new phone with 5.1.1 and not the app no longer works. It displays blank screens for each camera even though it says Playing and its downloading the video stream. On my old phone with 4.1 or 4.4 it worked fine. I emailed nightowl support 3 weeks ago and never got a response.
Does not work on galaxy s5 Does not work since lollipop up date. Customer service blames Google instead of fixing a broken app. I was able to salvage system and view video by using IP cam viewer light. Another update the developer that makes night owls app makes MEYE. MEYE works on lollipop with video. I would assume night owl is not paying developer to update app. How is that for customer service.
