It takes ages to rectify the glitches after each update to Android. The cameras keeps flickering. This problem been on nexus phones for 3 months now. They haven't even reply to emails sometimes. Lasy developers
The problem with this app is two things. It tends to freeze while using it to view your premises. The only way to correct the freeze up is to close and then reopen the app. The second issue is the content of what you are viewing is jerky and not smooth. It will skip seconds as you are viewing your premises. This happens on my phone and top notch tablet so it's the app and not the device. How this app gets 4 or 5 stars is beyond me.
Alarms cannot be set on my phone, an iPhone, and an Android tablet. It gives a connection failed warning. However, if I use my local ip adress for the DVR then they work. Needs to be fixed because much of the rest of the app looks quite nice.
We have several phones . Just recently my Samsung galaxy 5 neo and sons Sony can no longer see the cameras outside using 2, 3 or 4g. My wife's phone Sony answer sisters LG are still working. All using EE network EE say HIK issue. Also all phones now have buffering images even one using tesco mobile service Please sort out thanks
Much better since the last update thanks. It would be good if it detected when you were on the local network to the camera and to use the local link rather than the cloud one. Also playback controls could be better.
This app is unreliable. Many times it stops working and I am unable see my cameras. After I wait a while the cameras are viewable. Sometimes I cannot view via Wi-Fi but when I switch to cellular I can view cameras. The alternative hik connect does not work even after I called support. I will switch to another brand since I cannot rely on hikvision to provide an app that works well with their dvr.
