The dog station is constantly disconnecting although the wifi connection is very good (you can not monitor your dog for the rest of the day) and the sound is not very clear.
Piece of mind at very low cost.
I think the app is helpful, it would be great if could save activity log or press record for snippets of video, maybe even all day?? It would also be great if there was an organised way to see how much is noise vs rest even like a graph. Or just total rest vs total noise. It chews through battery so have to keep on charge but if it works I don't mind :D
Best app I've ever purchased, great value, does what it says. Can't believe I didn't know about it sooner - keeping an eye on the dog all day is so easy and being able to talk to her has really helped with her anxiety. The neighbours are happier too...
Unreliable. It has a good concept and I enjoy this app when it's working but sounds like I'm echoing many other reviews when I say I'm constantly disconnected even when both phones are on solid wifi connections. Getting disconnected means you no longer can keep an eye on your dog for the rest of the day. I don't think that's acceptable for a $6 app. It's been a few days and haven't heard back from technical support. I wouldn't recommend this app if these issues continue without a solution.
Nice app, does as advertised. However, sadly you cannot listen to audio and watch video (it's one or the other), and the video playback when remote is fairly slow - it appears when you're remote, the video feed is streamed through a server far from me, rather than through a more local cloud-based server, or at least device-to-device, which results in the round trip time being longer than necessary, and the video playback being super slow. You get can around this by setting up a VPN service within your home, and connect to that before using the app, and you'll stream HD with no problem at all. This is a great app, but hopefully this app will improve in the near future.
- Low volume warning - Will notify you that you might overhear sounds from the app
- Automatic silent mode launch on Dog Station
- Improved quality and stability of the video
