  • Meh-ny-thing

    Works when it works. Viewing phone goes offline sometimes and that's it. Seems it can't reconnect even if the wifi signal comes back (iPhone 5--connected to power and a strong wifi signal). I'll pay the premium for the auto-record (which worked fine during trial when phone was connected) when I can have a reliable system.
  • Bad business

    I'm actively downloading other apps because of the change in your pricing policy. The fact that your market this as a security device but then cripple it in an update not letting people know that they're putting their homes at risk is far more than greedy, it's irresponsible.
  • Trial ware

    This will expire soon after you install it. Don't waste your time.
  • Update removed ability to see recordings free, random disconnect

    By Patrickl27
    The new update makes it so I can't view the motion events at all without a subscription plan, which is clearly a greedy money grab, disguised as a simple "bug fixes and enhancements" update. I would be fine with a single time purchase for this feature, but when the only thing you can do without a recurring subscription is be alerted "there was motion" the app is useless. It has triggered on my automatic lights turning on/off, and without the ability to view the footage the app becomes useless as a security camera. Also, my camera device inexplicably went "offline" after just one day of use (running the previous version; it was connected to a constant charger, wifi, and had worked as a photo clock for months without incident). I was considering upgrading to a paid multi-device plan after this trip, but now will almost certainly not. This app failed to protect my home just 1 day into a several week long trip, I just hope no one breaks in while it's inactive.
  • Pretty good

    By Eg7737
    I think it's the best free surveillance app on the AppStore if you want to use an old tablet or phone. My only complaint is how small the window is when viewing live videos. I wish it would take up the entire screen.
  • No flashlight

    By Ghostdancer76
    No flashlight option anymore ..fix please
  • I'm a fan

    By Dmo100
    I am using a variety of old iPods and an iPhone 5 as the cameras and an iPhone 6 to view and I couldn't be happier. I've had it for a few weeks and it has performed above my expectations.
  • Good for android terrible for apple products.

    By Dontwanak now
    Do not subscribe to this unless you have an android. iPhones work terrible on these. I've tested Samsung S3, S5, Note 4 and they work great. 7plus and the Mini4 are horrible. Grainy and choppy videos. Awful! Also drains the crap out of your batteries even on android even while plugged in! I'd like my money back. I'll call this the battery killer!!!
  • Expensive

    By nulnvoid
    Wouldn't it work better AND be cheaper just to buy a I.p. cam?
  • Great App!!

    By ~TappaSt4r~
    I highly recommend this app! Been using it for awhile now. Luv everything about it. I can't wait for their Hikvision integration!
