Update didn't improve reliability of the Samsung servers There is a requirement that the camera and your viewing device be able to connect to the Internet so that they can communicate with Samsung's servers. Their servers are down so often that connecting to the camera is unreliable. You can't stay connected for longer than a minute. Also the software is buggy and has lots of room for improvement. You can't even download any of the videos off the sd card. You have to watch them with their viewer which is slooow. The only good thing is the camera quality.
Disappointed and frustrated I purchased 4 cameras. For the past few weeks my cameras began losing connection while viewing live feed. And if that isn't bad. Just within the past couple weeks app drains my battery and opens randomly when using other apps that have no correlation to this one. That's not even the worst of it, some change was made to resolution options, it use to be low and high. now it's low, medium, and high and the high resolution is now choppy and blurry. The clarity was so much better prior to the last update!!!
Nice App This is a very nice app, it works good. Only their is no zoom on event or recorded playback. Also camera connection is very slow remotely. Picture quality foggy on zoom hard to make out the figure. Exess permissions needed. Needs a live feed view. Overall a good camera.
No on / off control, annoying false alarms! Return to Costco, or wherever you bought it. It would be good to have an "arm" or "disarm" feature! Who agrees??? The problem is constant motion event or audio event notices while I'm in the room. It's annoying. Plus, I don't want to record myself walking around and then have someone steal the camera and get all the footage of me walking around! Not fun. On / Off Control Please!!! (Press "Thumbs Up" icon to alert Samsung).
Good but needs improvement Needs a live feed grid view not just a list view of connected cams & an option to select a notification sound different from system default
Battery drain is no longer and issue. App's UI is not great (too many taps required to go from one camera to another).
