About this app

The ONLY video solution with FREE HD for UNLIMITED CAMERAS!
NO subscription fee for HD
NO software purchase for HD
NO annoying ads

Get started immediately with zero setup and no extra hardware needed - turn your spare smartphone or tablet into a security camera, pet cam, baby monitor, or senior care cam!

- live video streaming from anywhere
- motion and sound detection with instant alerts
- free storage for recordings with optional cloud backup

- 360 coverage with both lenses

Security made simple:
Unlike expensive, legacy cctv cameras there is no setup required. The camera device is wireless and you don't need a SIM if you are connected to WiFi. The camera device has battery backup and only needs to be connected to a charger for long term operation. In areas with no WiFi the camera device can use 3G/4G. You are free to extend your system with as many camera devices as needed.

Media between the viewer and camera is end-to-end encrypted and signalling is encrypted with TLS using certificate pinning. Recordings are stored locally on the camera device, with optional cloud recording. Your credentials are not accessed by the service and two-factor authentication is supported when using Google or Facebook sign in. With two-factor authentication you can revoke access to the system for any device. You can protect the camera by locking the screen. For extra security, pair the viewer with the camera using Android Beam.

Auto recording, and the ability to keep it moderately secure. PROPS TO THE MAKERS IF THIS APP. enjoy the tip ;)

Seems to be a great app, but the camera disconnects after some time on Android 11, maybe the system doesn't let it run in background for very long. You need to try different running in background strategy, like a Foreground service with a notification or ask for permission to paint over other apps. Hopefully you can resolve the issue soon!

the app is working well, the only thing I would add for the options is a saturation mode to play with the low light environments. also the motion zones should be a yellow color Or any other color that you can see easily. since gray is the default option when the environment is dark you can barely see the areas you marked. thanks :)
