  • Great alternative to spy cam

    By Pali 77
    Love it. It provides instant notifications and great space to record the activities if any happening at home while u are out.
  • Great concept, great app

    By Varangian
    Excellent idea and execution! The app keeps getting better and better.
  • Best app I have

    By susie-s.
    This is the best app I ever downloaded. It works perfectly. It gives me a feeling of safety. I love how I can access the video no matter where I am. And my iPod next to my bed flashes a warning when it detects motion. I love it. UPDATE 3 Years Later- 8/17/2017: reloaded this, and now using my original old iPhone 4s at our vacation home. Still working just fine, and now as a dedicated camera. Presence is really good!

  • Poor Troubleshooting Guides and No Support

    By brrdnrrd
    Used the App in the past and now it doesn't work. The camera keeps disconnecting and leaving my camera list. This is happening on a setup of 3 devices: 1 monitor and 2 cameras, all up to date on the latest iOS (10.3.3) and the latest version of Presence. 1) restored devices via recovery mode and setup as new, with just the Presence App installed; camera disconnects. 2) created new presence account and issues persist with camera disconnecting 3) used mobile hotspot with unlimited data and sufficient bandwidth to accommodate the video stream; issues persist Until they keep up with these issues, It'll get a 1 star from me.

    1 star = 5 seconds delay before recording 2 stars= 4 seconds delay before recording 3 stars= 3 seconds delay before recording 4 stars= 2 seconds delay before recording 5 stars= 1 seconds delay before recording please reduce delay time for recording.

    Love it! Love it!
  • Great for Pet Watching!!

    By RsquaredO
    We started using this to watch our it!! Upgraded to the Pro version and it's SO worth it for us.
  • Not reliable

    By Laceyp84
    I subscribed to this because the first week it was great on the free version then I paid and within 2 days I couldn't get on live stream so I wrote customer service and they told me a way to reset the cookies which while waiting I had deleted it and redownloaded it which seemed to fix the issue for another week then same issue every week. Now it doesn't record anything whereas before I had to change the settings every single time to the settings I had previously set. Not really a good app due to the technical issues but if it worked better I would love it. I like that you can set it to record movement so I can see when my dog is misbehaving.

    This app gave us peace of mind during our mother's illness and allowed her to remain at home instead of entering a long term care facility. I tell everyone about Presence!
