A good start for basic home surveillance. My S7 connected to my DVR seamlessly (over same internet for initial connection) and the app for the most part is easy to use. I can live view my cameras and also watch video playback on my HDD. In fact, I feel like this app accesses my old recordings faster than using the dvr4-4600 and a monitor itself. Things I would like to see improve. Quality of cameras are not too good. Viewing the cameras with the dvr looks way clearer than the pixelated images on my phone. Secondly, add a pause button on the video playback instead of only having a stop feature and turning off the video.
I can't save recording on my phone anymore after this update, getting error "unable to save recording". Navigating through the playback videos is now more painful. I can't watch for a specific time. I select 7pm and video shows 7:37pm. I changed to 6:30pm and video shows 6pm reverts back to different times. It was working good before the update. Going from bad to worse. This update is horrible! -1 star if there was a choice. Model number is DVRx-4400. Please fix ASAP!
This app was working before the last upgrade but now just shows login failed everytime. Cant view at home or away anymore. Same on all phones and tablet. Called swann and they said they can see it but said they are not testing with android app. Needs to be fixed soon or this system is worthless!
This app has been spotty from the beginning but now its practically worthless. And the "support" is one of the worst I've experienced. I hate that I've spent so much money (5 cameras and installation) on something that works when it wants to. If Swann hopes to join the ranks of some of the top competitors in this space, they need a complete overhaul of their camera systems but most of all this app needs a tremendous amount of work. DO. NOT. BUT. THIS. SYSTEM.
Please don't waste your money. ALL the horrible reviews are sadly more then true. I am very disappointed on how terrible this while security system works. The only hope I have now is to wait to see if I can get my hard earned money back. The one nice thing was the gentleman who told set up for warranty to send me an email to start the return process. Fingers crossed. But please please don't wast your time or money on Swann Security systems
This app turned to complete crap after last update. Hope you fix the problems. I have invested alot of money in my swann system but I won't hesitate on getting different system. Swann should understand they have alot more companies competing with them unlike 5 year's ago.
