About this app

*** Before you sign into the Sighthound Video app, please make sure you have an IP camera or webcam connected to your computer and download the Sighthound Video desktop software from http://www.sighthound.com/download ***

Get access to Sighthound Video remotely. Sighthound Video is software that has been trained to simulate the human brain’s recognition abilities. It doesn’t just detect motion, like most other security software, it detects and tracks people. With this app you can view your cameras remotely, be alerted to people who have triggered rules you set, and search through clips of camera activity. You must have installed Sighthound Video on a computer connected to your IP cameras before using this app. Get the software at the Sighthound website www.sighthound.com if you haven’t already. You’ll soon see that the software’s ability to detect and differentiate humans from animals or other objects greatly reduces the number of false positives and unnecessary alerts sent to users, which can make even the most modern security cameras unusable.

Sighthound is the first video security software to work seamlessly on your computer, Android phones and Android tablets. After installing the software on your computer, it finds most cameras automatically, and you are using the desktop software in seconds. With the release of the Sighthound Video Android app, users can now benefit from the intelligence of Sighthound away from the home or office.

******* Main Features *******
1. Quick Setup: Installs in seconds and instantly finds your cameras
2. Clip Search: Search days of video in seconds - it’s a search engine for what your cameras have seen.
3. Live Feeds: See what’s happening at your place on your Android phone or Android tablet in real-time.
4. Smart Alerts: Receive push notifications of camera activity based on the rules you’ve set


******* Easy Setup *******
Step 1: Make sure you have an IP camera or webcam connected to your computer and download the Sighthound Video desktop software from http://www.sighthound.com/download
Step 2: Enable remote access from Sighthound’s preferences window and create a login user ID and password
Step 3: Download the mobile app and sign in using the login user ID and password you’ve created along with the internal IP address

At one time this app was pretty great. I've found though over the several years I've been a sighthound customer, the mobile app has changed very little. My biggest issues with the app are the loading issues or failed to load clips when notifications are triggered. Sighthound service is running on a Samsung SSD hard drive, wired 1G LAN, to a 2G fiber internet connection and yet clips don't load or take too long for it to matter. Saving money to buy a dedicated NVR for dependable results.

Every thing on this app is okay. The people detection is amazing but it has very few options. Opening the video to watch after motion detection has been triggered takes forever. Since the new update my app no longer gets notification. One of the main positive things about this app is that it's integrated with IFTTT. My only recommendation is that the Developers update the app and add more features.

EDIT: a year has passed, and absolutely nothing has improved. Publisher let's the product die a slow death. good enough featureset for me, and alerts come in within ca. 6s. but it is so incredibly buggy! Reviewing an alert always fails the 1st time, and after that the alert disappears so you have to manually navigate to the correct camera and rule (if you remember!). Then the clip usually fails to load again the first time, but usually the 2nd try it usually works. Caching prob?

You can also upload videos that seem incorrect: In the list of clips; instead of a tap to play, press the clip for 2 seconds then release to activate the upload option.
