Good for live view but remote playback doesn't work. Been told by technical support that my Swann DVR bought in June 2014 is too old to support the feature properly! Not happy that a DVR less than 18 months old is no longer supported, guess they are trying to force me to upgrade. I have a 12 camera system which is no longer made so I would have to pay a considerable amount of money for a 16 camera DVR. I am currently looking for a suitable alternative DVR from another manufacturer
Works but has issues I have a very week Internet connection so having the option for connecting with lan is great when at home. But it keeps over riding my ip section with p2p which then uses the internet instead of local area to connect to device. I have noticed that it likes to force the p2p with its UID a lot unless an actual domain is entered. If this gets fixed where it won't over ride my decision it will get 5 stars.
ANDROID VERSION 5.0.2 This app is not working with android version 5.0.2 unless it is on the same wifi network. If on a different network or operating off of cell signal the login fails. I have been using on my older Samsung device for over a year with no issues. It was a great app until I got a new phone. It still works great on my wife's new iphone. I have been on the phone with both Swann and Samsung and I really hope this issue is corrected soon..
I have had my swann set for about 3 years and all of a sudden I can't login with my android, no display at all. It was a very good product working fine but now I can't view anything while I'm at work. I always have my brother to go by a put valuable packages in the house when I'm not there but now I can't see anything. I will probably just go buy new cameras but due to this they probably won't be swanns. I can see them well at while I'm home and on my monitor but not when I'm away it seems when I did the update is when things changed. Not sure what to do.
Can't understand all the complaints! This thing works perfect! Really great app and dvr! You can view everything remotely and even go through most important dvr settings. You can choose between fluent and high res viewing which is really great if you don't have a good connection. I tried a lot of dvr's and apps, nothing comes close to Swann!
Not like it used to be This app is very important to the people that use it. The major update of 2015 makes this app unuseable. I have owned 3 Android phones and the app is the same across all of them. This app is very easy to set up, but the playback is almost non existent. Please fix these issues or please do not make this available for mobile use. This was one of the reasons I chose Swann. It was super easy to set up and set up on phone. Playback is where the issue is.
Fix bug with delay in live stream and PTZ control response on some DVR models.
General improvements to connection and streaming.
