Very useful I was considering cameras in case my house was ever broken into, but i found alfred, and it is wonderful. also makes for a fantastic baby monitor
Sort of works If I click on the camera to make it bigger I get an uh-oh 7001 error after it buffers for several seconds. On the screen that shows multiple cameras, I can see a slowly refreshing lowfi image as long as I don't try to click into the camera to record or monitor audio. So it is transmitting frames. Works really great on wifi-to-wifi connections (same network). LTE-to-wifi doesn't seem to work except for single frames that refresh slowly.
Shoddy connection Using a galaxy note 5 and a note 2 as camera, the app had difficulty connecting or it makes no connection at all. Must restart the app/camera multiple times before connecting. Once connected, the app is excellent. My camera (note 2) internet speed is a little over 2mbs. Not much for speed, but it should be enough for a lower quality connection.
Great App! This app works great, is easy to setup and cost nothing if you use the free version and have a spare smartphone, tablet etc. I even have it working on an old LG L38c smartphone that is running Android 2.3. If you need a stationary camera to monitor loved ones, pets, property, places etc etc... This is an insanely simple and inexpensive way to do so. I just wish I could add my security cameras to this app.
Generally this is a great free app, but with two huge bugs. 1. when I try to view on my firefox browswer a black box pops up and it says loading, but I never see the camera feed. 2. The motion detection is way too sensitive on 'high' and doesn't capture anything on "Med". I never even tested low. If these were fixed I would give 5 stars.
Overall this app is tremendous. I have two nexus 7 tablets with broken screens and and two old smartphones that together create a great surveillance system thanks to Alfred. Webviewer was great add, love that you all are always updating and addressing issues! thanks
