Has a mind of its own I installed it on an oldish tablet (3 or 4 years old) and it sent motion detection emails several times a minute, so I abandoned the plan to use it and set up another newer one in a corner were there was absolutely nothing to be misinterpreted as movement and I got no emails, so I set it up in the position I wanted it and left the house. I was leaving my house unattended for over a month and the last time I did this I was burgled. I arrived at the airport to see some 300 emails...As I didn't set up Dropbox (on the basis that the likelihood of moovement detection was minimal), by the time I arrived at my destination 34 hours later, there were no emails as the device storage had been filled up. My house is now unprotected and this app is responsible for my house not being secure. 4 days later and there is now no option to get a refund and anyway the issue is not the money but its not living up to its promise, which I naively believed despite some negative reviews. If its promise is important to you and your home's security is at stake DON'T buy it.
Refund? Won't work keeps crashing ain't able to refund. So now I have had $5 stolen by a junk app.
Does what it says This app does what it's supposed to, but it needs serious attention from a UX designer; the GUI needs a complete re-do. I was turned off but I had no time to investigate alternatives, so please use my $4.50 to buy a beer for a UX designer and ask him/her lots of questions.
Great App... can't wait for a few small improvements. Works really well... definitely worth the $5. Here are some things I could suggest to the developer to make it even more awesome: - Auto delete old videos (I want to set it and forget it) - Email alerts (even it the pic/video isn't included) when set to high res photo or video mode - More granular motion detection (some way to eliminate the frequent squirrel/wind blowing a bush videos) Otherwise... super cool app. - Update: I was able to set up TaskBomb (android app) and a py script to truncate the folder once daily...
Great for home security Excellent app which lets me use my old Android phone to watch my house so I don't have to but an expensive security system. By the way, if you get an SSL certificate error, make sure your phone's date is correct. Mine wasn't as I used an old phone that hadn't been charged for months.
quite useful The app does what it says, but there are a couple of things that would make it better :- 1. Currently, notification emails can only be sent if the image resolution is set to low, they will not be sent if photos are at full resolution or video clips are being used instead. The reasoning for this is that the larger files would take too long to email, but if like me you are using Dropbox sync, why can an email sans attachment not be sent? 2. More annoyingly, you cannot specify where on the phone captures are stored, this becomes a problem when you have little internal storage, but have plenty of SD card storage I would appreciate if the developer could have a look at these issues
- Material design update for Lollipop
- Change target to API 21
- Change to min API 9
- Auto delete option after uploading capture to Dropbox
- Fix audio streaming failure
- Other minor tidying up
