Good start but needs improving This is an improvement on the original Swannview app but there are several functions that don't work correctly. First the PTZ function is incredibly slow on my Motorola Xoom. The camera seems to pan around very very slowly. Not a problem with original app. Secondly, you are supposed to be able to double tab on any of the live video windows to make it full screen but as much as I try I can't get it to work. Only when I repeatedly tapped on on if the live video feeds for a few seconds straight did I manage to fluke getting a full screen image. Seems that the moveable video feeds interferes with the double tap. Fix those things and I'd say we have the makings of a very good app. Motorola Xoom Jellybean 4.1.1
Good when it works VERY! Buggy and intermittent....doesn't work on Galaxy note 10.1 or Galaxy s3 anymore Whats happened? One of the selling points for me for their Swann systems was the free dns server and the ability to view cameras on portable devices..
Works fine on Nexus 7 I have found no problem getting this to work, which it does consistently on my Nexus 7 Controlling the PTZ cameras are an issue. It is very jerky. Would be great if you could access recorded data. For looking at the current activity on up to 9 cameras on wifi when out it's just fine.
JUST BLACKNESS I have Galaxy5 and it connects but just blackness. Do swann not review and test the apps before putting into the market? I am so so disappointed with Swann. I had Swann since its conception. Take NOTE Swann or the company will lose many valuable customers! Such ashame!
Samsung S4 lollipop version 5.0.1 For some reason this app now works perfectly. I'm able to see all my cameras and control my three dumb cameras everything that's described and mentioned that works perfectly. Not sure what I did to get the app to finally work but it seems to be working on both my LAN and WAN Networks.
Really bad app Pros: Easy to connect to my dvr. Cons: Wipes out all settings on my Note 8.0 when I close the app, cannot double tap to go from mutiple cameras to enlarge one, images are so bad there is no way to identify a person.
Up to 9 Cameras on screen at same time
Drag cameras on screen to easily re-arrange view
Easily view multiple DVRs
Note: Due to a limit in the CIF DVRs processing power, Swann CIF DVRs allow a maximum of 4 cameras to be connected from any one DVR at at time. D1 DVRs such as the 3000 and 4000 series allow all installed cameras to be connected at the same time up to the 9 that can be viewed with this app.
One of the best app for remote surveillance, local and cloud video recording.
