Needs improvement! This app is slow in general but switching between cameras takes up way to much time! when watching the cam in landscape mode their is no option to switch to another channel, by the time you turn your phone and switch to another cam what ever you were trying to see is long gone! Would be nice to see all my cameras from the main screen! nothing is time stamped! The quality is very low! Everything looks pixalized and it freezes every 5 seconds! Could be a great app if swann put more effort into their product.
##LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR SECURITY## Thought swan was a good brand for security, I was wrong should have looked at other brands Infared doesnt work very well at night. Have to press buttons on screen several times before it does anything. Rarely can connect to device on app even if im connected to network at home. Freezes and closes app when trying to use screen shot button in app. Cant use playback on app because it freezes or runs at 0 - 5 fps. Doesnt always notify me on phone when it senses movement and when it does,cant even watch playback or by the time i finally get app to connect whatever was in the frame is gone.
Swann digivew Mediocre at best really would like to be able to have some kind of control over ability to watch more then one camera. Also while a way I have no control over recording so if you forget before you leave forget it! Really expected more out of a $300.00 system with one camera then to get the other three cameras you have over $540.00 and the smartphone app won't allow you to do anything . So to sum it all up if I had it to do over again I would spend my money else where
Needs more development Can't take screen captures using the on-screen button. App keeps on crashing. When you change to higher resolution video streams it defaults back to vga after opening the app again from the background. Disappointing that there has been no updates of late and the camera system is still available for sale. Where is the ongoing support from Swann?
Works for me Had an issue with the constant notifications bugging me, but after some digging I found the option to shut them off. Crashes occasionally, but otherwise works well. Would love an option to access it locally, when my phone is on the same network as the device, as well as an option to view the feeds from my PC, but those gripes are outside the scope of the app itself.
This is version 1.0.2, so they HAVE updated it before?! Will only work on Wi-Fi, so hardly works like it should – because it doesn't work trying to connect over non-Wi-Fi it never alerts to detections. Really needs work, but not updated I'm over a year. Very disappointing, especially given the strong Swann name.
One of the best app for remote surveillance, local and cloud video recording.
