Stream seems to lag when you're not nearby the premises. I have to keep taping my screen to stop my phone from going into sleep mode. It would be nice if my phone stayed on while I'm using the app like YouTube for example. Overall, it needs to stream better in real time and have some instructions. The recordings should be simplified as well.
Ok, but very basic. There are some super simple things they could easily do that would make a difference like auto login if you only have 1 system. Displaying the custom name of each camera instead of ch01 etc. Enable picture rotation (cameras only bend on 2 axis not all 3). Offered to fix these myself but they didn't seem keen for help!
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.
The app used to work flawlessly. Now I am lucky if I can log in at all the view my cameras. It usually takes anywhere from 8-20 tries before it let's me log in. Always says "login failed" either on my home WiFi or my cell phone service. I hope there is soon an update to fix this. I really used to liked this app too!
Used to work with my dvr 3000 but no more with updates... called tech support.. bumped up to 2 star just cause tech support is friendly but still not working for me. Maybe I can roll back to an older version to view a dvr 3000?
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!
