Cannot connect remotely after upgrade to Android OS 5.1 This app used to work. It will not work with Android 5.1 Lollipop. Swann hasn't updated this app since 2012, and their tech support was absolutely clueless that there was any issue connecting. The "Live Chat" on their website hasn't worked for over a year. Needless to say, I will never buy another Swann product as the company offers the lowest quality customer support in the consumer-grade industry. How have you let this specific issue continue for so many months unresolved?? Terrible.
Mobile app is useless Very poorly designed and cannot do basic things like view a single camera full screen. How hard would that really be to add? Notifications? Forget about it. Administration of the cameras or playback? Nope. This is a glorified thumbnail viewer.
Doesn't work on an S5. This app used to work fine but now doesn't. It works on my nexus tablet but unlike my phone I don't carry that everywhere. Reading the other reviews I think swann need to get it together and sort this app out so it works on phones
Black screens after google update After the most recent android update the app no longer shows image. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling but still no video. The app however says it is playing. I'm using an HTC one. Prior to this issue it was a good app. Now the cameras are useless if I can't access them remotely.
No longer works with Lollipop Barely worked on newer versions of Android 4.x but now on 5.0 it won't display any video at all. Swann, you need to be able to keep your apps up to date if you want to keep your customers!
Doesn't work! Doesn't save settings I've tried all the Swann apps, non of them save the settings, they'll work the first time, then when I go back to the app, no settings are saved. Very frustrating, the home DVR camera system is good, this app should be an embarrassment to them.
Local recording to handset
Easier DVR management
Improved PTZ control
Drag cameras on screen to change arrangement
One of the best app for remote surveillance, local and cloud video recording.
