Ratings and Reviews
The best Foscam App... BUT...
I recently upgraded from some older 89-series VGA 640x480 Foscams and had been using this app to monitor my property remotely while at work. Excellent! The 8 pics filled up my iPhone 5s and 6's screens perfectly.
So I upgraded the cameras to the FI9826 models, which are capable of 720p and 960p. Since 960p is the same ratio at 640x480 of my old ones, I figured it would fit the screens the same way and set them all for 960p defaults.
Nope! It defaults in my phone to 720p, leaving ugly borders on the top and bottom of the individual screens, despite my defaults on the cameras themselves (set on my desktop) at 960p. It'll even change the image on my desktop to 720p while I have the app open, then switches back to 960p when I close the iPhone app. Unfortunately there's no setting in the iPhone app that I can find to force adherence to 960p.
So... If you can add that setting, or if I'm just missing it let me know lol, then I will have nothing to complain about. I realize this is borderline OCD but for $170 a piece I better be getting the 960p ratio because that's why I bought them!
Other than that, great app. Very smooth, fast, responsive.
This app will not set up Foscam, FI9831P cameras via P2P, so I went through the process of setting up port-forwarding. I got four cameras successfully connected. Although I have a good, reliable high-speed internet connection on both ends, viewing my cameras remotely is lacking in video quality. The video is erratic and unstable. While watching the onscreen camera clocks, the seconds continuously jump around, missing a few seconds here and there. I tried adjusting to the lowest quality, and the video is still erratic. I've come to the conclusion that the problem is within this app. I have smooth, fluent video if I use the old Foscam app. This app occasionally has problems connecting too. In order to reconnect to your cameras, sometimes you will need to completely close this app and try again, in order to connect. I like the user interface on this app much better than Foscam's, but it's of no use to me with such erratic video. I'm disappointed, because I really wanted a better alternative to the old Foscam app, since they don't support it anymore. Unfortunately, this app is not a reliable alternative for me. The newest Foscam app is no better, so hopefully someone will develop a reliable app in the near future, or make improvements to this one.
Messes up your HD camera’s video resolution settings
For one reason or another the developer(s) are MIA with this app. The video resolution settings on this app DO NOT apply to the Foscam HD series cameras but ONLY to the MPEG 89XX series. This issue causes the app to change my HD camera’s (Foscam R2) resolution settings temporarily which then also causes the camera to refocus/refresh the image completely every time I open the app and then again if I click on the thumbnail to make the picture bigger. I have tested this passionately as I thought I was going crazy seeing the global video resolution settings on the camera change itself. It literally changes the global video resolution settings temporarily on the camera itself if and while the app is actively open. Once for the thumbnail screen in VGA resolution and again if you click on the thumbnail image to 720p even though I have the global video resolution settings on the camera itself set to 1080p. The moment I close the app, the camera’s global video resolution settings go back to 1080p as it should be. What the heck?!?!?! Please fix!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
