What I wanted was an app that would make my old phone be a remote camera I could leave alone for hours or days, then connect up and see what my cat was doing. The app didn't stay connected or keep the phone awake, so after several minutes I'd need to wake up the phone before I could connect to it. Functionality / quality / ease of use was fine while it was working though. I wish I could have tried out this functionality without having to start a subscription.

For a simple security monitoring app I really like the app. Easy to use, good resolution, with some additional features even on the free version. Can't give you guys atop rating because the app drops out too easily and the phone must be accessed to restart. This does not happen with other similar apps in the same exact application. 1. Motorola G5 plus phone 2. Local wifi with sped of 80mbps at the install location which is only about 25 feet from the wifi access point. Perhaps I am missing something?

My setup is Synology NAS + an old phone configured as IP cam with this application. I configured my NAS to send me an email with a picture whenever movement is detected in the stream received from the phone and it's working beautifully. The configuration is trivial, the app also works when the phone is locked (it would be unusable otherwise, like some of them...). Thumbs up!
