    It’s free and it works to put those old devices to a good use!
  • Good app...and free, too!

    Great app. Use it all the time.
  • Unreliable

    By Sam from Tampa
    I’ve given this app a 4 months trail and it works for a few days then it disconnects. I read all these raving reviews about the app and so little negative reviews that makes me wonder if the reviews are really valid. I’ve reach out to the company and all they recommend is deleting the app and reinstalling. Well I’ve done that no less than 23 times and still the app disconnects. In any event I don’t recommend this app for security or watching your pets due to you never know when it will stop working.
  • I cannot download videos to my camera roll.

  • Best free security system I can find no strings attached

    Make a twitter account if you don't have one. I am a land lord living with attendance can creeps me out what the can do with toothpaste and lay on my bed and brush off athletes foot, jock itch, staff boils, bedmates, bedbugs, frankly I just like the peace of mind. I think this app deserve a generous donation. I have two tablets and smart phones are use one of my tablets for security cam and have a Twitter account on my phone I don't use the Twitter account on my tablet unless it's logged out.

    Nov 27/28: the app quit working on another cam with guided access at the same time each day. Recommend not relying on this app as a security system that can be trusted when you're away. Nov 22: a cam stopped recording again. Nov 20: video on all 5 cams stopped about 8 hours after I soft reset them. I emailed support and received a nearly instant reply that looked like it was written by overseas tech-support saying I would need to reset my devices to get them working again ("Have you tried turning it off and then on again?" IT Crowd). Soft reset them all again. Deleting/reinstalling the app was the next suggestion. Nov 17-19: no video recorded on all 5 cams for 48 hours on windy days with plenty of action, then started recording again but many videos still in preview mode. Aug - Nov 16 2017: few cams drop out, some don't record obvious action or quit for blocks of time (see below). Longtime satisfied Pro user here until Feb 2017 when 200+ videos during an incident were blank and could not be played; no response from several tries to contact support. Setup email notifications for lack of motion detection. On 9/23/17 we noticed someone cut our string lights sometime between 7 am and 7 pm the day before; we tried to play video back to see who did it but it was missing between 4:30 pm and 11 am in a location with nearly constant motion and, of course, no email notification. Checked spam/trash. Emails for lack of motion detection that do arrive have 48 minutes added to the rule listed in the email (?) and I'm not receiving phone notifications I set up. Lately some older videos never get out of preview mode, and the cameras will fail to capture many large motions (cams are set to detect tiny).
