Video Quality is TERRIBLE!! Our company has been selling and installing Swann Security Camera systems, primarily the Professional Series and everything is great except for one important detail -- Most people buy cameras to remotely view their cameras from their phone and the SwannView app's video quality is terrible! This is a deal breaker. Night Owl and others don't have this problem. Paying extra for a high resolution system is kind of pointless if when you view it, you see a low quality image! Fix it or we will stop buying Swann!
It doesn't work well, previous app worked perfect this one is stubborn ie crappy. What a dissapointment how do these tech guys do it. I thought they w
READ THIS FOR CONNECTION ISSUES! Could not connect to cameras after upgrading. I messed with the settings and figured out that you can only have ONE item per DVR in your device list.
I have finally figured out how to view my cameras remotely however whenever I user this app I need to reboot my phone because it drains my battery. I'm guessing it may keep something lingering on the background that kills my battery. I am on a Samsung s4. Anyone else see this or have fix? Any fix?
Bad App After struggling for hours on different tablets and phones with inconsistent results, I tried Robert Chou's I P Camera viewer. Much better picture and it works, consistently unlike this app!
For the price phone viewing shouldn't be so confusing.. Other brand easier. Pricey and nicely packaged with the promise of 1,2,3, hook up, I was able to see images on monitor but over an hour of fiddling still no success with seeing on phone app. For the price I shouldn't be toying around. I returned and s week later tried competitor Qsee on.a whim. Equally expensive, not as attractively packaged it actually did show on my phone as promised 2 minutes after downloading the app.
Updated to address app crashing on some handsets. This version will automatically start previously selected cameras when the app is re-opened.
